  • 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.

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 Purfleet (Thurrock) allow you to choose the length of the driving lessons. In our experience it is best to do lessons of between one hour and two hours, as longer can get very 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. Our flexible intensive driving courses are able to meet the needs of just about anyone wanting to fast track their learning.
