Do you know anyone who is under the age of 17 years and who would like to start driving lessons? We provide 15 and 16 year olds with professional tuition from DSA Approved Driving Instructors in dual control cars to help them develop car handling skills on a network of private roads.

  • Priority will be given to 16 year olds, but places will be allocated to 15 year olds if vacancies permit.
  • We can now offer lessons to pupils 14 years of age if space permits.

We can offer Auto lessons only to 14 year olds
if available.

  • Lessons are arranged once a month on private land at Earls Colne Business Park, Earls Colne, Essex CO6 2NS.
  • All driving lessons will be in Dual Controlled Cars with a DSA ADI (a Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor), so that young people can develop car control skills before they go out onto the public Highway.
  • We now have an automatic car that can have adaptations added for learners with disabilities or for anyone that would like to have lessons in this type of car.
