Driving Lessons with EL’s Driving School

Serving most of South-East London and North West Kent. Our aim is to offer top quality driving lessons at an affordable price. We have been instructing people to drive for a long time and our high success rate reflects this.

All of our instructors are Grade-A rated Approved Driving Instructors and are officially registered by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency. Because safety is a major issue, we ensure all of our driving instructors are CRB checked regularly. Please note: in order to drive in the UK you must be able to read (with glasses or contacts, if required) a car number plate from 20 meters.

Regular tuition taken with our local instructors on a weekly basis is still the best way of learning. Giving you the opportunity to take training at your preferred pace.

Also, this will also give you the time to digest what you have learned between your training sessions. This will also get you ready for your practical test as soon as possible.

Take a look at some of our most recent testimonials from our learners.

Totally recommended! Always turned up on time, professional and meticulous – had a different instructor before but it was a much better experience this time (and crucially I passed!). He is also very friendly and a great teacher! Will work on your bad habits and you’ll see much improved driving – driving skills that will actually stay with you beyond passing the test. First rate!

Learn the latest techniques from EL’s

We offer free pick up and drop off for your driving tuition around the local area. Therefore, we welcome all learners whether you are a nervous new learner or an experienced refresher driver. Furthermore, our instructors will tailor the training sessions to your specific needs and requirements.

Currently, the national motoring test centre pass rate is 47.3%. This means that the level of driving skill needed to pass the practical test is much harder now than ever before. Our motto at EL’s is; ‘Pass them and they will come’. Meaning we build our business based on helping learners pass as quickly and successfully as possible. This is because it helps us build our driving school further with learner recommendations. If you do not live around the surrounding areas, call us to see if we have driver instructors that can help.

1. Top quality. EL’s instructors adapt all training lessons according to your individual needs. Since some people are nervous, if this is the case we wouldn’t force situations on you until you feel confident. We are the only school that has a diploma in Educational Psychology. We aim to provide our learners with the best value lessons possible. So, we continue to develop our training skills and methods outside of the required DVSA assessments.

2. Always on time. Our instructors are on time 99.9% of the time. However, if our instructors are unexpectedly running behind, we will let you know and will try to make up the time, where possible.

3. Amazing value. EL’s beats most driving schools when it comes to lessons prices. The duration of our lessons is full hour driving lessons. Beware, since some schools of motoring provide around 45 to 50 minutes of lessons for the same, if not more.

4. Price freeze. We promise that whatever price plan you join us with, that’ll be the same price until you pass your test. Even though our prices may change in the course of your training, they will never go up for you.

Before you can take the DVSA practical test, you will need to pass the theory test. This is in two separate segments.

The first is the hazard perception test. This entails watching video clips of road scenarios and spotting the hazards. The second section is the theory test questions. You will need to answer 43 out of 50 questions correctly.

Luckily, EL’s instructors can help you with your theory and hazard perception test. And even better, we offer this for free. When you start with us, we will sign you up for our online theory test training service. You will be able to use it as long as you need to until you pass. Because the theory test has become harder, this will really help. This can be done alongside your lessons.

Free Ebooks To Help You Pass

Of course, it doesn’t just stop online. We can provide you with a free Highway Code and Traffic Signs Ebook. And your instructor will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. We have a number of offers to suit everyone. From students to experienced drivers, there is something for all. Be sure to check out our special offers now.

With our quality practical training sessions in Bromley, our instructors could get you on the road, no time at all. So don’t hang around.

What to look for from Good driving schools

At EL’s Driving School, we cover BR1, BR2, BR3 & BR4 and many towns around the local area. Any good school of motoring should offer high-quality client centred tuition; you will only receive one-to-one driver’s education. However, we will only be focused on developing your driving skills. This will be our top priority. We do not waste time on things that don’t matter. E.g. you will not be dropping off the instructor’s dry cleaning (believe it or not, this happens). Needless to say, to avoid this, you will need to spot the right instructor for you.

As with any good school of motoring, your satisfaction must be the number one priority. You will find yourself making progress and a surprising rate on your training in BR1. However, so that we can prepare you fully for your practical test, we will ensure that you get plenty of practical on-road practice on the test routes with our driver coaches. There is nothing better than knowing where you are going and what you can expect. All our locally based instructors cover the West Wickham test centre and Hither Green in Lewisham. Our instructors will help you master the skills you need. In addition, these include lessons on; roundabouts, dual carriageway, town driving, manoeuvres and more. You will have the best chance of passing your practical test first time with our methods.

At EL’s, we know that learning to drive can be difficult, especially when taking lessons on today’s roads and surrounding areas. This is why we make sure we match the lessons and conditions in, Kent, BR1 to your specific needs. If you are a new learner, we will start you off on very quiet roads around the local area until you master the basics. Once you are confident, we will move you on to the more complex roads.

If you have had previous driver training but have yet to pass, we can help. At EL’s we can assess your driving and decide the best course of action for you. Our instructors can help all standards of driver without exception.

What to expect from our driving instructors

Using the latest training methods, our instructors adapt the lessons to each learner. Additionally, if you have had practical lessons in the past with little results, this may have been the problem. Due to the fact that every learner driver is unique, so all practical training need to be adapted accordingly.

However, there is no point trying to treat everyone driving in the same in their lessons. Because some people learn quickly in their classes, others take longer. Some are practical and some less so. EL’s understands this. Hence, with time and patience, all of these issues can be overcome. We can help you through the first steps to the last.
