Driving Lessons in Colchester

At Dedham Vale Driving School we have many driving instructors who are experienced and have taught people to drive in the Colchester area for many years. They are all DBS checked and are fully qualified Approved Driving Instructors. (DSA ADI).

Weekly Driving Lessons

Weekly driving lessons are a great way of learning to drive. Our driving instructors 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 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.

Intensive Driving Courses In Colchester

An intensive driving course doesn’t suit everyone because of the short timescale involved. Some people may find it overwhelming thinking that in just a few days they will be taking a driving test. For this reason, your instructor will take you out for a two hour assessment in Colchester. During the assessment, the driving instructor will advise you on the number of hours you will need to reach test standard and also your suitability for an intensive driving course.

The Best Experience Ever


I would highly recommend DVDS. Had driving lessons with Mario and he was absolutely fantastic. I was a very anxious driver but Mario put me at ease and boosted my confidence immensely.
I passed first time and couldn’t thank Mario enough!!


I had Mandy as my instructor and she was absolutely amazing! I suffered with anxiety and a fear on on-coming traffic but she soon turned me into a confident ‘natural’ driver. She has endless patience and is a really nice friendly lady who will soon put even the most nervous learner at ease and build up their confidence and driving skills. Can not recommend her and DVDS highly enough! 5 star driving school, 5 star instructor


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 had lessons with Hayley and had the most lovely experience. She really helped me build my skill and confidence in a short amount of time and was always willing to go the extra mile 🙂
