  • I had a great experience learning with Smart Drive UK in Littlehampton. I decided to switch from my previous instructor and saw the difference straight away. They detected my weaknesses instantly and got me on the right path. Highly recommended.

Why Pick Smart Drive for Driving Lessons in Aveley?

Our driving school in Aveley (Thurrock) and around Essex is widely recognised as one of the best in the area. We ensure that you get maximum value out of every moment, and every penny you spend with your instructor. Your driving lesson in Aveley will follow the guidelines laid out by the Driver Standards Agency, meaning you can have confidence in the process. We try to fit our lessons to your situation by offering flexible driver training programmes. Our video driving lessons can support and enhance your practical learning. Our videos go through what you need to know in your lessons and therefore can serve as both pre-lesson preparation and post lesson refreshers. One of our main goals at Smart Drive UK is that you spend your time driving rather than talking about driving. You chose how long each lesson is with our driving instructors in Aveley (Thurrock). Our recommendation is that you take lessons of between 1 and 2 hours, as we have found that works best. Intensive lessons are a great way to learn to drive, and our instructors have a lot of experience of helping students learn to drive within short periods of time. Our flexible intensive driving courses are able to meet the needs of just about anyone wanting to fast track their learning. If you already have driving experience, or are a fast learner, we will move through the process fast, checking your retention and moving on. Students that find driving more of a challenge can progress at their own pace, building knowledge, confidence and skill gradually. Our instructors offer in lessons cars of different shapes, makes and sizes. Every car is clean, tidy, serviced and in full working order. Each and every vehicle is dual control, ensuring that you have the peace of mind of knowing that your instructor is your safety net.
