  • 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 Orsett Heath?

Our driving school in Orsett Heath (Thurrock) is widely recognised as one of the best in the area. We save you time and money by taking you through a carefully designed learning process. Each time you take a driving lesson in Orsett Heath you will know that it is in line with the guidelines and requirements set forth by the DVSA. We try to fit our lessons to your situation by offering flexible driver training programmes. We make it possible for students to watch videos of all lessons. After you have gone over the video driving lessons in your own time you will be better prepared to hit the road in your lessons, meaning you get maximum value from your instructor. One of our main goals at Smart Drive UK is that you spend your time driving rather than talking about driving. Our driving instructors in Orsett Heath and around Essex will let you choose the duration of each of your lessons. Our recommendation is that you take lessons of between 1 and 2 hours, as we have found that works best. Our instructors have lots of experience delivering intensive lessons. Intensive driving lessons are not for everyone, but if you are motivated then our course can fit your needs. If you already have driving experience, or are a fast learner, we will move through the process fast, checking your retention and moving on. If you struggle with driving then our instructors will ensure that they go at a pace that maximises your learning, and your chances of passing the test. Our instructors offer in lessons cars of different shapes, makes and sizes. We ensure that every car is presentable, clean and well maintained. Your instructor will have control of your car in the event of an emergency situation, as all models are dual-controlled.

What to Expect from our Driving Lesson Packages in Orsett Heath?

Before your first lesson with Smart Drive UK you will receive a Starter Pack. This pack contains the following: an appointment card, progress report document, Basic Driving Routines Guide, Safety questions & answer sheet and full access to our on-line Theory and Hazard Perception modules. The Pass Plus Scheme is also well worth considering. This is a course that is designed to teach new drivers how to tackle some of the more challenging driving scenarios that they will come across. The six modules of the course tackle night driving, all weather conditions, driving around town, rural driving, motorway driving and dual carriageway driving. Each topic is given at least one hour. The modules can be repeated individually if you fail to attain the standard required to pass. By completing this course you are enhancing your competencies in some key driving areas, and reducing the likelihood of your being involved in a car accident. If you complete the 6 modules successfully you will be awarded a certificate from the Driving Standards Agency. Participating insurers will offer you a discount on your car insurance when you have this certificate (up to 30%).
