My name is Martin and I am registered by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) as a fully qualified and Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), based in Nottingham.  I provide driving lessons in Nottingham (using a manual driving school car), operating independently (within an AA Driving School Solo contract). I was trained by AA Driving School (in 2011) and have been a self employed driving instructor since qualifying in December 2011.

Living in Wollaton, I currently focus on providing driving lessons for learners who live in most parts of NG8 and NG9 (as well as the Lenton and Dunkirk parts of NG7) and have experience at all of the driving test centres in Nottingham (at Chilwell, Colwick and Watnall). I offer a free introductory meeting, prior to lessons commencing and provide extra benefits, through a Reward Scheme, for learners who have regular lessons with me. I also provide Pass Plus, motorway lessons and refresher sessions (covering most parts of Nottingham) for qualified drivers (i.e. people who have already passed their driving test).

While I focus on helping you develop the essential driving skills to help you pass your driving test, I also aim to ensure that your driving lessons provide you with the foundation of skills required to help you drive safely and confidently for the rest of your life. By working closely with you, I aim to create a clear structure of driving lessons, tailored to your individual needs and use an App to help us both reflect on and prepare for your lessons and monitor your progress.

When looking for a driving instructor, lesson prices and availability are always key considerations but, if you are looking for a reliable and experienced driving instructor in Nottingham who not only aims to teach, instruct, coach, guide and support you reach your goals (helping you progress at your own pace), I would be delighted to explore your requirements in more detail.  If you are interested or simply want to find out more, please contact me using my contact form, by telephone or send me a message (text, WhatsApp or through Facebook) using any of the contact details at the bottom of this page.

Learning with Martin has really been a pleasure. Having learnt over a long period of time and with extended breaks, Martin was very flexible and communicative, making sure that I was comfortable in starting to learn again during COVID. Throughout the lessons, Martin adapted to suit my learning style such as the use of analogies and visualisation but also pushed me out of my comfort zone and challenged me so I felt as prepared as I could for my driving test. He was supportive and encouraging throughout and his feedback, both verbal and written, was always welcome. The resources on his website such as the guides and roundabout videos were also very clear and useful.

This culminated in passing my test first time with only 3 minors but most importantly coming away feeling safe and confident on the road. Thank you Martin for helping me achieve this milestone!
