Meet our instructors

We have been teaching people to drive for over 10 years, and as the largest independent driving school in the area offer real value-for-money driving lessons. Our instructors have countless hours of experience, humour, and a lot of patience!

We are proud of our pass rate, and dedicated to helping you reach test standard within 30 lessons. Together, we set targets at the beginning and coach you to meet them, adjusting lessons to meet your pace and ability.

Our aim is to provide you with all the skills necessary to be a good, safe, and courteous driver for life and understand the benefits of eco driving. See what our learners say about passing with us.

A guide to driving lesson durations

  • 60 mins – Progressively learn in regular 1 hour lessons. We’ll cover one subject at the start, and as you improve and gain confidence, increase that to more subjects and practice in each lesson.
  • 90 mins – A 90-minute lesson enables you to learn a subject and practice it straight away. We are able to travel from your location to the Test Centre, with more time for real driving practice.
  • 120 mins – You can achieve two and half times (or more) in a 2-hour lesson than in an hour – it’s a more productive way to learn and practice. We are able to travel from Ramsgate to the surrounding areas for real hands-on driving practice.

Refresher lessons

We also offer Refresher driving lessons for those who wish to return to driving after a break, or just wish to update their driving skills to meet the demands of modern driving.

Please note that we currently do not offer automatic lessons in the Surrey area.

callum pass driving school student

I have to be the proudest mum at the moment. Thank you so much Yomi for all of your support with Callum and for dropping him off to me today . You have been a star, will be in contact when Callum's brother is old enough to learn to drive so don't go anywhere ha ha. Also thank you for returning the money for the lessons he didn't actually need and for being so honest that he didn't need to have them, I totally appreciate it. Now to worry about him being on the road! Thanks again!


I would recommend Pass Driving School.I had a great instructor Steve( B) , friendly , good sense of humour and made my lessons enjoyable .

Keith Monie

A big thank you to my driving instructor Chris Smith really straight forward driving instructor,helped me with a lot of ‘school boy errors and silly habits’,got me passed first time and driving the way I should be .Also got three of my brothers passed FIRST time so speaks for itself what a good instructor he Is and very patient . Would highly recommend him for anyone to use him as an driving instructor .

Ricky Jones-Davis

I passed today with Steve Bushell, the experience I had was positive, always, but his teaching methods were clear and constructive when needed. He purely wants to see students pass and does not want ‘to string you along’ for money. A great bloke and easy to get along with. I would recommend him and Pass Driving School to anyone looking for a FIRST time pass.

Logan Rogers

Yesterday I passed my driving test and no doubt I was able to pass FIRST time due to the excellent guidance I received from my driving instructor, Richard Graham.I was a very nervous driver to begin with, but Richard was able to help me past this and helped build my confidence. He was always able to fit regular lessons around my own schedule and was always patient and friendly.Richard allowed me to learn at my own pace and always gave the encouragement I needed.Recommend Richard 100%
