  • 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.

Each area requires at least one hour of training. It is possible to do individual modules again if you fail to reach the required standard.
