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.

My experience with Kevin Hackman was a very enjoyable one. Kevin explained everything perfectly in lessons and he made it fun. Kevin's personality is calming, which made me more relaxed and less nervous during lessons. To me Kevin is a great instructor and I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Kevin thank you for everything.

Pass was my first choice as I had heard good things about them in which the results showed as I passed first time. My instructor was Alex and he is a really relaxed guy but also teaches you well. My experience with Pass was great and would always recommend them to anyone and my instructor Alex. He always believed in me when I did make mistakes and told me I could always do it, thank you so much to Pass and Alex for teaching me how to drive.

I was able to pass my practice driving test today on my first attempt,all thanks to John King. He really is an amazing instructor and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an instructor who is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to easing your experience throughout the whole process, such as booking your test on your behalf. Although I might have made many mistakes while learning, John was always able to encourage progression whilst making the lesson enjoyable.

Just want to say how good pass driving school is. I have been with other driving schools before and never felt this comfortable when I was having my lessons with John King. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
