Course Category

Learning to drive is a lifelong skill and is a great way to gain freedom and independence, so you need to choose a driving school which will be committed to helping you become a safe and confident driver.


    We recognise that many students may feel more comfortable learning to drive using an automatic car, rather than a manual

    This is understandable due to previously driving or owning an automatic car or personal preference.

Would like to give a big thanks to A1 driving school Zaf he helped me out alot on my lessons really good teacher explains things to you clearly, I was having lesson in the past with a different driving school and there standards dont match A1 driving school Zaf's at all, he is a really highly experienced driving instructor and I recommend zaf and the school as they do not employ any workers who fall below average, I thank zaf alot for helping me on my lessons and getting me ready for my test and getting that pass, very nice guy 100% recommended 👌🏼

PeZzA B 10/01/2020

I came from another driving school to Zaf at A1 Driving school and I could see a massive difference in the quality of his lessons and learned so much more from him in one lesson then 4 with the other driving school, the lessons were amazing and Zaf is a really easy person to get on with and he can have a laugh with you aswell as teaching you everything you need to know to pass your test, the car was so nice to drive and I enjoyed every second of it, I recommend A1 driving school to anyone that wants to be passed fast and wants the highest quality of lessons

Oliver 09/01/2020

Just passed and can’t recommend A1 enough! Mo is a brilliant instructor and really helped me gain confidence on the road. The atmosphere was always positive and constructive and I could see for myself that I was making progress throughout. I had previously been with different driving school and can confidently say that switching to A1 was the best move I did.
