Hello, my name is Colin Kentish; I´m a friendly, patient and reliable Government Approved (DVSA) Driving Instructor. In October 2015, I achieved Grade ´A´ status which is the highest grade that a fully qualified Driving Instructor can attain.

I offer high quality, professional, driving lessons for learners of all ages and abilities in and around the Tonbridge & Sevenoaks area´s.

I also offer Part 2 & Part 3 Instructor training courses for Potential Driving Instructors (PDI´s)

So, whether you´re a complete novice, or if you´ve already taken some lessons, I can help you learn the driving skills required not just to pass your practical test but to ensure ´Safe Driving for Life´.

You would be driving a new Ford Fiesta 1.5 litre diesel car with manual transmission. I´m really sorry, but I´m unable to offer driving lessons in a car with automatic transmission!

I´m extremely proud of my consistently high pass rate which at 31st March 2018 was running at 85% (based on results from the last 20 driving tests) The national average pass rate is only 46%

Also, I really appreciate the positive reviews that I´ve received from former students which can be viewed by clicking the ´Testimonials´ section of the main menu.

Already passed? Well, there are other options available, including ´Pass-Plus´, refresher & motorway lessons, all aimed at developing your driving skills further, improving safety and building confidence.

If you would like more information or would like to arrange an appointment, please call 07786 101170 or complete and send the enquiry ´Contact form´. I will try to answer your enquiry as quickly as possible. But, I will definitely get back to you within 24 hours.

Please note, due to the increasingly high number of scam or sales calls that I receive, I will not answer calls that display ´Unknown´ or ´Private Number´ so please leave a message if your call is not answered!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Colin

information about the Pass Plus course

Pass Plus Courses - Make you a safer, more compitent driverYou have passed your driving test and can now drive by yourself. This is an exciting time - driving gives you freedom and independence. However, it is also very expensive - insurance premiums for new drivers can often far exceed the cost of a car.

WHY?

Statistics show new drivers of any age are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. It is basically down to a lack of experience. Insurance premiums reflect the increased risk.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THIS?

Sign up for Pass Plus, a training scheme for new drivers. It is designed to develop your skills and knowledge to make you a safer driver.

EXTEND YOUR DRIVING EXPERIENCE SAFELY

Your initial driver training should provide you with a varied range of road and traffic conditions. However, this training often takes place within a familiar area, as there are time constraints and lesson objectives to consider. Pass Plus provides the opportunity to drive out of your local area, extending your driving experience safely.

BUILD ON YOUR EXISTING SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE

You already know how to drive so your Pass Plus sessions will be different to a driving lesson. You will develop your confidence and ability to deal with unfamiliar road and traffic conditions under the guidance of an experienced professional.

SAVE MONEY ON YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUMS

Many insurance companies offer discounts to new drivers who have completed the Pass Plus course, so it is worth shopping around for the best deals. Although the discount is only offered on the first year‘s insurance, if you stay claim free, you will begin to build your no claims bonus, leading to lower premiums year on year.

PASS PLUS MAKES SENSE FINANCIALLY AND COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

THE PASS PLUS COURSE

Designed by the Driving Standards Agency, Pass Plus aims to develop a positive approach to driving through two key factors - your attitude and your skills.

The course is organised into 6 modules

  1. Introduction and town driving
  2. All weather driving
  3. Out of town driving and rural roads
  4. Night driving
  5. Dual Carriageways
  6. Motorways

You have to complete all modules and undertake at least 6 hours of training. The amount of time spent on each module will vary according to individual needs. You will not have to take another test - your instructor will continually assess your driving. To gain your certificate your driving needs to demonstrate you have ‘achieved‘ or ‘exceeded‘ the required skills and knowledge in each module.

What you should do when you see blue lights approaching

One situation that often sends new drivers into panic mode is when they see an emergency vehicle coming towards them or even when they just hear the sirens.

Blue Light Aware is a short video, produced on behalf of the emergency services. Their crews rely on the help of other road users when they're on a 'blue light' journey.

By watching Blue Light Aware, you will better understand their needs, you will be reducing the risks you face, you will be contributing to a safer road environment and you might also be helping to save a life.
