ABOUT

Hello, my name is Phil Bennett, I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI). I provide intensive and semi-intensive driving courses as well as individual driving lessons using both my system based on my experience, as well as components of the LD System of driving tuition after previously operating my business under the LDC franchise. The LD System is an exciting way to learn to drive which saves you money by reducing the number of lessons it takes to learn and encourages the student to take ownership of their own progress.

Having 30 years experience as a police officer and in particular 6 years working in road safety roles, I cover a vast range of skills and lessons and am very aware of the safety of the learner and other drivers. I am also fully signed up to operate within the voluntary code of conduct for approved driving instructors. This covers how I behave in personal conduct and business dealings, advertising my services and would settle disputes with pupils. Click here for more information.

Whether you are choosing driving lessons for yourself or for a member of your family, its vital that you make the right choice.

 

The safe drivers of tomorrow are the well-taught learners of today

 

I can normally cover Cheltenham and Gloucester plus the surrounding areas, so if you are interested in taking driving lessons or an intensive driving crash course with a patient and friendly driving instructor, please don't hesitate to contact me.

LESSONS

  • 1 hour

  • 90 mins

  • 2 hours

  • 10 hour block bookings

  • Intensive courses on request

The length of lessons can be a personal preference. Some people are suited to shorter lessons others want to get through their lessons as swiftly as possible, so there are options to suit everyone.

  • Lessons are flexible and can start from home, college, work etc but location has to be by prior arrangement.

  • I cover the whole of Telford and surrounding areas. Please ask for confirmation.

  • Each lesson will start and finish at an agreed location

  • Each lesson will last the full hour, 90 mins, 2 hours, etc

  • No other person will be in the car when your lesson is conducted unless by prior arrangement

  • For further information please see Terms and Conditions

Lessons would naturally follow the DSA syllabus, however input from learners is encouraged to determine what is understood and what areas we may need to pay more attention to. It is a fully interactive process to enable the learner to get the best out of the lesson.

Lesson structure

If you feel nervous or suffer from anxiety or simply lack confidence, just try one lesson. There is no obligation whatsoever to carry on with lessons if you are not comfortable. However, you may find that you really enjoy that first lesson and wish to continue and that may be the best decision you ever made.

Nervous driver

Some people don’t want to drive when they turn 17. They leave it a few years and then feel that learning to drive may open up more job opportunities or help more with taxiing their children around or just simply to be completely independent. It is never too late to learn and it doesn’t matter at what speed you learn. If you want to do something enough, it is possible.

I must stress that all learners are individuals, not everyone takes the same amount of hours, has the same dedication or determination as others and obviously money can become an issue. Everyone is taught individually and not compared to others, so I would encourage you not to judge yourself by others but by how much progress you feel you are making during these lessons.

Have I left it too late?

Have I left it too late?

Experienced driver? You may have been driving for a number of years but would benefit from a refresher course. This could be to just build confidence, to iron out any bad habits or to learn new road systems.

Return to driving? Those who have not driven for a while and feel a refresher course will give them a confidence boost to get behind the wheel. Also ideal for those who have passed their driving test and not driven since or those who have lost their confidence following a road traffic accident and need get back out on the roads again.

Refresher lessons
 
 
 

Having learned to drive over 6 years prior, I was very nervous to get back onto the road again. Having a refresher lesson with Phil was so incredibly helpful as he was patient, understanding and made me feel totally calm and comfortable. After only one lesson with him, I was on the road and as confident as I was 6 years ago! Thank you Phil!
