Driving Instructor Farnham

driving instructor Farnham

As a local independent driving instructor I have been providing driving lessons in Farnham since 2011. Throughout that time I have developed a teaching style that can be adapted to suit any student and I’m confident that I can transform anybody into a fantastic driver. By actively focusing on instilling the correct attitude towards driving, alongside teaching the practicalities, I have a consistent track record in producing drivers who can drive well and are confident in doing so. The fact that many driving examiners have sent their kids to be taught by me surely speaks for itself!

It’s completely normal to be nervous at the prospect of learning to drive and everybody progresses at their own pace. I’m a specialist in teaching students who may struggle to keep their nerves under control. By providing a comfortable learning environment and ensuring my students are completely at ease I can successfully turn even the most anxious of students into calm, composed drivers.

I’m also accomplished in teaching students with learning difficulties. Conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD don’t have to be something that will hinder your driving education and I can help you overcome them and become skilled behind the wheel.

Driving Lessons Farnham

During your driving lessons, you will receive a learning experience of the highest quality however I also provide resources that allow you to learn in your own time. My website contains a plethora of material that my students can access free of charge which offers helpful information and advice. I have created videos that offer valuable insight into many aspects of driving including one way systems, parking and manoeuvers, all presented in an easy to follow format.

As well as videos there are also many documents which cover a comprehensive range of subjects related to the process of learning to drive. From what to expect on your very first lesson all the way through to how best to prepare for your test these documents contain information that will benefit any learner driver. There aren’t many independent driving instructors who provide their students with such a wealth of additional resources – just one more reason to learn with me!

During the course of your driving lessons in Farnham alongside becoming a confident and competent driver, you’ll also learn what driving around the local area entails. We’ll have the opportunity to focus on any specific road or area of Farnham you may be concerned about having to navigate.

Whether you’re worried about the one-way ring road, not sure how best to approach the crossroads at the junction of South Street and the A325 or simply don’t even know where to begin when it comes to Europe’s largest inhabited roundabout – the Shepherd and Flock roundabout – don’t fret! I can teach you how to tackle any type of road or roundabout properly and with confidence.

Unfortunately, Farnham doesn’t have its own test centre. This means you will have to sit your test at one of the nearby test centres in Farnborough, on Aerospace Boulevard or Guildford, at Slyfield Industrial Estate. Whichever test centre you choose I will ensure you are entirely prepared. We will go through previous test routes and explore the surrounding areas in order to give you an accurate idea of what to expect during your test.

The nearest theory test centre is located in Aldershot which is easily accessible from Farnham via car or public transport. The theory test resources on my website will provide you with everything you need in order to obtain a pass.


Driving Lesson Costs

When learning to drive it’s important to have a driving instructor that suits you personally. I offer the first 2 hours at a discounted rate in order to allow you to get a feel for what I’m like as an instructor before you commit to full rate lessons.

Bookings of 10 hours are given a discount. In an effort to ensure each one of my students can benefit from the discount I offer every 10th hour at half price regardless of whether you pay per lesson or in bulk.

“He’s probably one of the nicest people I have ever met, not only a great driving instructor but also a great guy who made me feel welcome and calm. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.” – D. Jones

“I started off with a different instructor and I then moved to Gavin, I felt so much more confident driving with him and he quickly identified my faults and how to work on them, after 4 months of lessons I passed my test with only 4 minors. Gavin was a great help with my confidence and driving skills, I would highly recommend him to anyone!” – S. Turner


“I highly recommend Gavin, he is a great driving instructor. He is very patient which is beneficial, especially if you are nervous to start with, he makes the lessons enjoyable whilst still learning how to drive. Gavin is very thorough and he always made me laugh. Thank you for helping me pass first time.” – A. Jacob
