What People Have Said About Our Driving Lessons In Poole
Rebecca Barron, Poole.
“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving and in particular Chrissy Hudson was knowing she taught my sister, who said she had a really good experience with them.
Chrissy was so calm, encouraging and ensured she explained everything in a way I would understand.
I’m not really a theoretical leaner I’m more a hands on learner and Chrissy was able to adapt the lessons to my way of learning for example she would explain the basics and the safety behind something and we were able to go and practice it straight away.
She ensured she picked up on every little detail that I need to improve on to ensure that I would pass first time. Even learning throughout covid and lessons being on and off and test being cancelled and rescheduled I still managed to pass first time with 0 faults!
Would 100% recommend Independent Driving School to anyone wanting to learn to drive and passing first time. Thank you again Chrissy.” Rebecca Barron
“The“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving was having someone who understood my anxiety over not understanding something I was trying to learn.
I found out about independent driving, and in particular Chrissy Hudson through a family friend who had a really good experience with the company and Chrissy. I first started driving when I was 17, but due to personal reasons I struggled fully concentrate and understand it and had a 2 year gap until November 2020 and changed instructor to Chrissy.
She was very warming, lovely and didn't make you feel bad or anxious if you didn't understand something at first (which I had experienced with a previous driving instructor). I felt very confident and prepared for my driving test with Independent driving, having had many lessons lead up to it (especially a 4 hour lesson that significantly helped). Chrissy made me feel more confident, and nothing was ever too much to ask.
She was always very thorough in her instructions, and I don't think I would've passed 1st time with 3 minors without her. I would really recommend independent driving school, especially Chrissy Hudson! She is great and I believe she is an asset to the company.” Phoebe Jones
“The most important thing for me when choosing Independent Driving was having someone who had good reviews online, along with an instructor who was easy to get on with, and easy to understand when learning in the car.
Another factor that was really important to me was, when looking online and messaging driving schools, Independent Driving had a very quick response rate, and got me to have my first lesson within the next week.
Learning to drive was a little harder than I expected, I drove around in my own car throughout lockdown with my dad. Then when I got into the car with Matt I expected to have a few issues, but I didn’t realise how some little things could make such a huge difference, and Matt really helped pick out my flaws in driving and helped me perfect them.
I found that Matt had a very easy way of teaching, he was always very calm and always talked me through when I did things wrong, I found his teaching very effective. He gave me little tasks to work on every time I had a lesson, so throughout the week I would work on it in my own car and I found this really helped, along with him mentioning reference points when parking. I would 100% recommend to others, in fact I have already recommended to most of my friends who a few have started lessons with Matt.
I always wanted to go with a driving school rather than a private instructor, and I am so glad I did because if I didn’t I wouldn’t have passed my test. Thank you so much, for all your help.” Sophie Phillips.

Driving School Poole | 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.
