The school was formed with one main vision, to provide top quality driver training at an affordable price to the people of Sutton, Surrey and surrounding areas of Greater London.

After leaving the Police in 2017, Jon began the long road to becoming an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor). After passing all three parts of the process, Jon qualified and immediately began his success story, boasting an extremely high first time pass rate whilst working under a Driving School Franchise.
