Welcome to Gavin House Instructor
Hello, I am Gavin House, a fully qualified Driving Standards Agency approved and vetted driving instructor working within a 25 mile radius of Farnborough in Hampshire.
I provide a clean, friendly, fun and informative environment to show you all the correct procedures for driving in a variety of driving situations.
Also an ex skid-control instructor who worked at Goodwood Motor Circuit near Chichester; I can offer all weather tuition and advice to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road.

The latest learning techniques and a 2016 Ford Fiesta ensure that you receive professional preparation and get you on the road with confidence.
Now a Drive iQ Pro coach, included for free in your normal lessons, you now receive online help, videos, and training about risks that most teenagers wont even get taught with your average instructor.
I offer a 1 stop service where I book your theory and practical tests for you, provide training for the theory test and practical test, and then get you through the Pass Plus scheme (£75 discount offered by Hampshire County Council).
More importantly I focus on attitude. Statistically, 1 in 5 will have a crash in their first year of driving and road crashes are the main cause of death for young people aged 15-24; I aim to redress that.
My Statistics for 2015
- 62 People started lessons
- 62 People passed the test
- 10 of them with Zero Faults
Your average student uses 3 instructors; mine generally don't leave, but I definitely get them having come from other instructors.
- 58 were at or above the average pass score, that's 95%.
- 52 passed at the first attempt.
- 83% of my students passed first time! Nationally it's 25%.
- 23 times above national average for Zero Faults!.
Nationally, 1 in 161 driving tests get zero driver faults. I've had 10 this year alone! That's 1 in 6!!! TWENTY THREE times above national average.
*In a completely unprovable, unofficial conversation by examiners over a cup of coffee (so I can't prove any of this), I was voted one of the top 5 instructors in Farnborough by some of them. Now, I can't prove it and they'll deny it, but why would an examiner even tell me that if it hadn't happened? Mind you, I've even had new students referred to me by examiners so I'm probably number 1!
Passing first time is great but passing with a good score is more important as it proves you are a good driver. I teach skills taught to the Police and advanced drivers - I think my stats prove that you're getting quality tuition so now you don't even need to take my word for it!
I booked a few refresher lessons with Gavin after not having driven much since passing my test 7 years ago! I would highly recommend him; he has been so calm and patient (and has made me laugh!) whilst teaching me where I am going wrong with my driving and how I can improve. What more could you need!
