Driving Lessons In Ferndown
“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving was after reading so many good reviews and reading about their high first time pass rate.
I started manual lessons with Adam who was very friendly and patient with me but after struggling with the clutch I decided to switch to automatic with Hamish. Hamish was excellent at teaching and making me feel calm during lessons.
He explained everything so I felt confident and fully prepared for my driving test.
I would definitely recommend Independent Driving School and both Hamish and Adam.
I was really impressed by how caring and honest the instructors were at Independent Driving, focusing on the quality of lessons rather than just wanting to make money, with the main goal of passing your test first time. Leading up to my test I had lessons everyday with Hamish and was very happy to hear the examiner say I'd passed first time!” Julia Lim
“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving was a recommendation from my sister, who passed with Independent Driving with flying colours.
Her first time success is what made me choose them as my driving school. This choice was later cemented once I met Karen. She was awfully lovely and made me feel comfortable from the get go.
Throughout my lessons, Karen adapted to my ways, stripes, and strong suits! I’m very pleased to say I passed first time, which was amazing.
I cannot wait to progress towards my next steps, becoming an ECA/Paramedic. Thank you to the driving school and to Karen.” Annabel Lee
“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving was because loads of people who went to my school also passed first time and the reviews were helpful to choose the best instructor. I passed my driving test first time thanks to Adam from Independent Driving.
Once I had learnt to drive Adam showed me all around Poole and areas that were difficult which was incredibly helpful because on the test I knew exactly where I was.
Adam was amazing at fitting me in after lockdown and I wouldn’t have had the confidence to pass first time if it wasn’t for him. I really would recommend Independent Driving School to everyone.” Sam Hicks

Driving School Ferndown | Top Rated Customer Reviews
If you’re looking for a Professional Driving School that comes highly recommended with a particularly high first time pass rate we are the school for you. Independent Driving serves the county of Dorset bringing you the highly trained driving instructors you need to pass your practical driving test.
Our instructors are male or female with a wide variety of levels of experience, however all bring the very latest techniques & methods to the table.
Like many other instructors, we also provide discounts for beginners & new students & we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not entirely happy with our service. We also offer large discounts for block bookings of 10 lessons or more.
As mentioned in our opening paragraph we are particularly proud of our first time pass rate which is considerably above the national average. What is our secret? We have a proven system that ensures that our driving instructors follow our best practice guidelines & procedures.
Our structured system will feature a complete plan of action broken down for you so you can see where you are up to with regard to your progress within the driving school syllabus & what you need to do to get to the level where you are ready to take your test.
We do encourage practice with family & friends provided it is used in a way that will assist & improve your driving abilities ready for your next lessons. Ideally you would practice the areas that have been highlighted for you on your reflective log so to reduce the length of time you need to cover them in your actual lessons.
For example if you are struggling with your bay park manoeuvre then it would make sense to go somewhere quiet & practice as often as you can whilst out with friends & family. Once you can demonstrate you are able to carry out the procedure confidently & error free then your instructor will then move you on to the next step of the syllabus.
However, if your instructor thinks you need more practice you will continue where you left off until you have mastered it. This example demonstrates the importance of using your practice time wisely.
You should ensure that you complete your theory examination as quickly as possible. This will benefit you as it gives you a better understanding of the practical side. It will also allow for your instructor to book you in for your test as soon as you are ready without any unnecessary delays.
