Automatic Driving Instructor

Hi – I’m Gabriella (Gabs)

I’m an Automatic Driving Instructor, and fully qualified Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor, DBS checked, and have been teaching people to drive since 2010.

DVSA approved driving instructor
DVSA Pass Plus registered instructor

I run Succee’d School of Motoring.

Known as “Gabs” by my students, I’m friendly, patient and here to help you achieve a very important skill, to drive safely and with confidence for life. I tailor my teaching methods to suit you, so that you will get the most out of your lesson to progress to test standard.

All lessons conducted are in an automatic car on a one to one basis, I don’t share your lesson with someone else.

  • Lessons will be specifically tailored and suited for the individual needs and pace.

It doesn’t matter, you don’t need to worry if you
  • have never sat behind the wheel

  • wish to retake your test 

  • want to refresh your driving skills 

  • wish to change from manual to automatic 

  • need to get in the motorway for the first time 

How long is each Lesson?

Each lesson lasts for  1Hr – 30mins or 2 Hrs unless you are doing an intensive course

What duration is best for me?

Personally I have found that pupils doing at least one 2 hour lesson each week make quicker progress, however everyone learns at a different pace.

How many Lessons will I need?

On average, a complete beginner will need between 30-40 hours or tuition to become ready to take the driving test

Am I likely to pass my Driving Test?

How to I get started?

To get started you will need to apply for your Provisional Licence.

  • This is issued in a document, a photo card only so that you can legally begin learning to drive.

  • Apply for your provisional licence in good time. This can be as much as two months before it’s required – for example, for a 17th birthday.
