Weekly automatic driving lessons

Weekly driving lessons are a great way of learning to drive.  June and Garry offer hourly driving lessons, one and a half or two hour blocks.
Alternatively, you may wish to increase the number of driving lessons per week. You will receive high quality driving instruction on a one to one basis.

During your automatic driving lessons in Colchester your instructor will perform at least one mock test. This will make sure you are fully prepared and therefore give you the best chance of passing your driving test 1st time.

Meet the driving instructors.


Nissan Note (automatic)

“I’ve been a driving instructor since 1985. I have gained a wealth of experience over the years and still really enjoy teaching people to drive. I taught in a manual car for around 19 years before deciding to teach in an automatic. I pride myself in being very patient, reliable and easy to get on with.”


Peugeot (automatic)

“I qualified as an approved driving instructor in 2000 with DVDS. I used to teach in a manual car but for the last few years I’ve been teaching in an auto. I really enjoy the satisfaction when a student grasps the skills involved in becoming a safe and confident driver. I also enjoy teaching in Clacton, Colchester and Ipswich.


I highly recommend June as a driving instructor. After 3 months of driving I passed my test first time with only 2 minors.
June is dedicated, passionate and really helped me overcome my anxieties around driving. A lovely lady and very down to earth. Thanks again June ??


I would 100% recommend Garry as your driving instructor. I couldn’t have wished for a better person to teach me to drive . From the start of my first lesson with him, he built up my confidence on the road and communicated and assisted me throughout the time I was learning to drive with him. He got me through my driving test passing 1st time, which I would have never been able to do without him. I would definitely recommend Garry to anyone looking to pass there driving test.


Highly recommend Garry, he’s a very patient and professional person, he helped me pass my practical test within 3 months of lessons with him, he worked through everything with me at my own pace to ensure nothing was left unsolved, again thank you Garry!


I had June who was my driving instructor who I found to be a fantastic person to learn from, it was a little harder then I thought it would be but with her knowledge and patience I’m happy to say I was able to pass first time, will always recommend her to others.
