About Us

Drivers have been passing with Flying Colours Driving School for over 10 years!  We have taught hundreds of local people to drive and are very proud of our high pass rates.

We have a simple ethos when it comes to teaching. THE PUPIL COMES FIRST – ALWAYS.  Our instructors always have the customer’s interest at heart and not their own.  We will devise a learning plan that is as individual as the pupil themselves and we will adapt our teaching styles to suit each driver’s own needs.

We have found that by being flexible in our teaching methods, we are able to help pupils reach their goals in a shorter period of time, which in turn has financial benefits:

For example, according to recent statistics on average a person learning to drive will take approximately 45 hours of professional training.  At Flying Colours we find most our pupils are taking their first test in approximately 32 hours.
