Our dedicated team of local driving instructors

When booking lessons with Karen's, a dedicated local instructor, will be provided for the entire course.  We have found that offering driving lessons, with local driving instructors, helps when learning to drive. 

An instructor who knows your locality can make more informed decisions throughout your driving tuition, benefiting not only your ability to pass your driving test but also for driving through the local area after you've passed. 

Karen's School of Motoring recognises that learning to drive is an important milestone in anyone's life and if students feel comfortable and enjoy their driving training experience they are more likely to succeed and become responsible safe drivers. It doesn't matter if you are confident or nervous each instructor will help you to relax and guide you through each task by sharing the responsibility as appropriate.
