Hazel, Locks Heath

Passed my driving test a couple of days ago with Mark and managed to do it with no minors. Mark was really helpful and made me feel confident behind the wheel as to begin I was quite nervous. As well as this he was also very flexible with fitting me in lessons around the time I had work. I would definitely recommend if you’re looking to start driving.

Megan, Locks Heath

Just passed my test on my first time with Mark. He really knows what he's doing and has a great sense of humour but also points out clearly and works with what you need to improve on and overall, a great instructor.

Our aim is to give you the skills to be a safe driver for life, and therefore be more aware of your surroundings, and drive as you should do. Our driving school instructors are experienced and understanding people who know you may be nervous getting in a car for the first time but do not worry, we are at hand to help take you from a learner to a driver, in a calm and enjoyable way, by using a variety of teaching and learning styles suited to you. Plus you will be included in the lesson setting achievable goals, so you never feel you have missed out. How many of your friends have said: “My instructor just tells me what to do every lesson, when I would like to spend more time on roundabouts”?  We won’t do that, we include you in the lesson planning, so you get the most from your driving lessons. Every learner driver learns in a unique way and it is our job to help you achieve your dream of that licence, giving you freedom and independence.​

The secret to passing your driving test the first time…

It is a combination of confidence, preparation and understanding what the driving examiner is going to be looking for. At Lendrum’s Driving School we teach you exactly that. So let’s start now and you will see the common sense in it all.

Too many people prepare to “Pass the Test”, but that is just a basic level of driving, our aim is to teach you a skill for life, and help you learn skills and techniques on your driving lessons which will benefit you way into your driving future, yes the test is a hurdle that must be passed, however, the focus needs to be wider than this, so you are able to think for yourself, plan a journey, understand how to put things right when they don’t go as planned. We use a Client Centred Learning approach at the driving school, including you during your driving lessons, helping you to set achievable goals, as well as for your driving instructor to teach you new topics, which will motivate you more to achieve tasks.

Once you have learned these styles, your confidence will be soaring and the Driving Test, will not seem as scary as everyone makes out, you will demonstrate confident driving to the examiner and ultimately pass with flying colours.

We offer “Free” online theory training to help you achieve a pass at your theory test, giving you all the skills and knowledge of your driving lessons.

Part Trained Driving Lessons

If you already have some driving experience, perhaps with a different driving school, or with friends and family, our Part-Trained Driving Lessons in Locks Heath and Fareham mean you don’t have to start all over again with your learning.

Simply tell us about your previous driving experience, take us for a drive so we can see what level you are at, and we’ll tailor your driving lessons accordingly. We can also book your practical driving test if you have already passed your theory test.

Driving Test Rescue

Its a nature of learning, and some people fail their driving test, however it isn’t due to the hard work and effort you have put in, it can be as simple as someone else not indicating, or you feel nervous and the nerves get the better of you.

We understand failing your driving test is not a nice feeling, but don’t despair, we re-group, pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off, reviewing the sheet given to you, specifically looking at all the white area’s on the sheet, indicating where you did so well, I am sure there will be more good points than bad. Your driving instructor will review what happened and together sort an action plan to get you through next time.

The next time you take the test, take your driving instructor with you, this may help settle your nerves having a friendly face in the car.

Don’t worry though, we will show you where you have gone wrong, you will put that right and you will be in the best shape to pass your test.

Confidence Building

Not every learner driver is excited about jumping in the drivers’ seat, and don’t feel comfortable or relaxed about driving. We understand that driving is very personal and some people, learn to drive to get from A to B and not use driving to go out and about. Whatever your driving anxieties we can help you overcome them so you can get your driving licence.

Our team of driving instructor’s have all come across people with anxiety, dyslexia, dyspraxia and confidence issues, just have a quiet word with you driving instructor when you meet them or with the team when you call, and we will find a way that suits you. People with confidence can take longer, but there is no reason why you should not be like the millions out there with a licence!

Our instructors are great listeners, will always keep you safe and will never push you into things you do not feel ready for. In fact our way of teaching will help you feel good about driving and will motivate you to driving with confidence. Let us know how you learn best and that is where we begin.
