  • 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 Linford?

The Smart Drive UK driving school in Linford (Thurrock)is one of the most renowned in the county. Our lessons are designed to ensure that you get great value for money. The DVSA have put in place specific requirements for each driving lesson in Linford and around Essex and around the UK. We ensure we follow them to the letter. At Smart Drive UK we take pride in the flexibility of their driving lessons. We make it possible for students to watch videos of all lessons. Watching the detailed videos can help to reinforce learning and help you to assimilate information for the more tricky aspects of driving. This ensures that you get the most out of your lessons with the instructor. We believe that your time with your instructor should be for practice rather than talk. Our driving instructors in Linford (Thurrock) allow you to choose the length of the driving lessons. We do recommend between one hour and two hours though, as shorter is often unproductive and longer is tiring. 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. Intensive driving lessons are not for everyone, but if you are motivated then our course can fit your needs. Drivers with experience find that their intensive course moves fast, building their practical skill in the areas in which they need the most help. Students that find driving more of a challenge can progress at their own pace, building knowledge, confidence and skill gradually. We have a number of different car makes and models available for your lessons. All of our vehicles are kept clean and tidy, and are maintained to the highest possible standard. Each and every vehicle is dual control, ensuring that you have the peace of mind of knowing that your instructor is your safety net.
