Learn to drive with ADS Driving School in Derbyshire

ADS Driving School Services - Derbyshire

I offer a range of driving lessons that include; standard 1 and 2 hour lessons, intensive driver training courses, refresher lessons, motorway driving and Pass Plus. I also carry out mock tests and offer help with theory tests and hazard perception.

ADS Driving School understands that no two learners are the same, so I look to adapt and tailor each lesson for the individual, ensuring you get the most from each lesson and are comfortable at the pace you wish to learn at. All lessons are one to one training, with no car sharing and are designed to cover all aspects of driving.

I firmly believe that the more time you can spend behind the wheel the sooner you will reach test standard.

I welcome nervous pupils and can assure you that my relaxed and calm approach will alay any fears and concerns you may have. I am happy to collect you from your home, college or workplace.

All pupils receive a lesson planner during their first lesson, pupils are then able to record their training progress with ADS Driving School.


My tuition vehicle is the latest Ford Fiesta Titanium fitted with Dual Controls and air conditioning. The car is replace every 32 weeks, ensuring you learn to drive in a safe comfortable vehicle throughout your driver training.

Manual driving lessons only.

Refresher Driving Lessons & Courses

I also offer refresher courses for those wishing to brush up on existing driver skills, or for those that haven’t driven for a while and wish to get a bit of confidence before getting back out on to the road.
