Intensive driving courses in Croydon

Living in Croydon means you have a test centre on your door step, but it’s also fairly easy to get to West Wickham and Mitcham to name a few. Depending on which side of the town you live on, your dedicated instructor can advise the best centre to book, so you have the highest chance of passing first time and you can also utilise your lesson time learning as much as you can!

We offer intensive driving courses in Croydon from 1-12 weeks. We have found our most successful courses are semi intensive ones which are completed over 3-4 weeks. Our pass rate for these type of courses is currently 88%.

I want to thank Chris for being amazing and for every hour he spent teaching me a skill I know I will use for the rest of my life. I started my driving experience with him and this made passing my test just that much better, knowing that we had been on that journey together. He explained things clearly and helped build my confidence when driving and in life. During every lesson I would receive constructive feedback and in the lessons leading up to my test we would discuss what my weaker areas were and focus on tackling those within the lesson. He really makes the effort to build relationships with his students, and from day one you know he believes in you and your ability to succeed. I’ve now passed my test but I will miss our little chats. I’m proud to say I was his student.


I have to start saying that Chris has been my 4th instructor and the best with a difference!
His way of teaching is amazing, setting up a simple routine that you will always follow to develop good driving skills, creating, therefore, a safe environment to make you feel comfortable and without fear of the road.
I just did 14h of driving lessons (after 2 years without driving, so starting from 0) and passed the exam successfully. He always believes in you and that feeling grows within you.
Thank you so much for your time and effort and for your always positive reassurance and good vibes!
Please, keep it up!

A very happy pupil!!! =)

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have automatic driving instructors in Croydon?

Yes we do. We have an automatic driving instructor who works part time from 9am to 4pm most days of the week. He has been with the company for over 5 years.

Do you use trainee instructors in Croydon?

No we don’t. All of our instructors are fully qualified and have a minimum feedback score of 4.5 out 5 too.

How quickly can I book my driving test in Croydon?

The waiting time in Croydon does vary, typically it's a round 6-8 weeks. If you are learning with us, we will always ask you to book the test in anticipation you are going to be ready so you have something to aim for in your lessons.

What if I don't like the driving instructor in Croydon you allocate me?

This isn't a problem and we welcome your feedback. All you have to do is call us up and if any money is outstanding put it in writing and we can offer you a refund on the remaining lessons or find you an alternative instructor. It’s extremely rare a pupil asks to change instructors with us, but we do understand you can’t please everyone - so we will always do our best to find you an instructor you will like/get along with!

Where will I go on my driving test in Croydon?

You will start your driving test on Canterbury Road in Croydon. It’s very common to go straight onto the A23 and head up to Thornton Heath which is just a 5 minute drive. If you head in the other direction down the A23, you can head into Purley - also a 5 minute drive. Also the A232 is another fast road which leads to Sutton. Both areas are quite common coming out of the Croydon test centre.

Expect to be driving in around Croydon or heading out a little bit on to some of the faster roads heading towards the towns mentioned. Don’t forget you will be tested on 1 manoeuvre, independent driving and you may be asked to do the emergency stop.
