Thank you for visiting my website my name is Colin Parry. I am an independent approved driving instructor (ADI), and I am well established in Cheltenham, also covering the surrounding areas.

The Driving Standards Agency strongly recommends that you take lessons from an Approved Driving Instructor. There is no doubt that this is both the best and safest way to learn to drive. Any person who gives car driving lessons for payment must be registered with the Driving Standards Agency. He or she is required to display an Approved Driving Instructors identification certificate on the windscreen of the tuition car. To become an ADI you must pass examinations which are of a very high standard.

How do you choose your ADI?

Ask friends and relatives for recommendations
Choose an instructor with a good reputation and pass rate
Look for an instructor who conducts himself or herself in a professional manner.
A clean car and a tidy instructor is usually a good sign that they take pride in their work.
It’s the quality NOT the quantity of driving lessons you receive, thats counts

Think very carefully before choosing an instructor that makes extravagant claims - there is no such thing as a guaranteed pass. Do not look for the cheapest lessons you can find - low cost driving lessons often work out more expensive over a longer period of time..
