Welcome to the Cheviot School of Motoring
Hello, my name is Bob Clark, I am a fully qualified Grade 'A' Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor with many years experience, which enables me to teach you the correct driving skills, not just to help you pass the driving test, but to become a safe and competant driver.
I also comply with the DVSA's Code of Practice for Driving Instructors, which is your guarantee of high professional standards and business ethics, and I am CRB checked for your peace of mind.
Learning to drive can be a daunting experience but I believe that it can also be pleasant and enjoyable. From your first lesson to your last you will be taught in a patient, friendly way so that you learn quickly and with the minimum of stress. Each lesson is tailored to your driving ability so that you will never be placed in a situation with which you cannot cope.

Before you can start your driving lessons you must hold a Provisional Driving Licence which you must take with you on your first driving lesson. You should allow three weeks for your licence to arrive after applying although it could be longer if the DVLA have to check your health or personal details.
Some frequently asked questions:
What is your Driving Instructor Grade and pass rate?
My driving Instructor Grade is 'A', the highest, placing me within the top 13% of instructors in the country. In 2015 65% of my pupils passed their driving test first time, the national first time pass rate being 21%.
How many lessons will I need?
It depends on your aptitude, frequency of lessons, your age and if you will be getting driving practice with a relative or friend.
When can I start my lessons?
Usually within a week, but if you want to start on a specific date, for instance a birthday, it is probably best to book two or three weeks in advance.
How soon can I sit my test?
I keep detailed records and will be happy to discuss your progress at any time.
Can I start my lessons from home or work?
You can start and finish your lessons anywhere within South Shields, Jarrow, The Boldons or Cleadon. Pupils often start their lessons from school or college and finish at home.
What do I wear for my driving lessons and test?
Anything you like but not dirty work clothes and wear 'sensible shoes' please, not work boots or high heels. It is best to wear shoes that allow you to feel the pedals.
Will you be using your mobile phone during my driving lesson?
No, and I would appreciate it if you your phone was switched off.
