Why choose Drivex Academy?

What is it that sets us apart from traditional driving schools?

  • We are always looking to improve on the high level of personal skills and qualifications that we demand.
  • By setting an advanced driving syllabus our students reach a higher standard compared to those of most other driving schools.
  • Consequently, our students find the driving test a far easier task and we achieve pass rates close to double the national average!
  • All Drivex Academy trainers are also Directors of Drivex Limited and as such have a vested interest in seeing that the customer receives the highest quality of service.

'This is double the national average pass rate and puts our instructors in the top 4% in the U.K.'

All of our instructors are not only fully-qualified Approved Driving Instructors but are also on the Driving Standards Agency (D.S.A.) Register of Fleet Instructors. Put simply, this means that our instructors are especially trained to be able to deliver advanced driver training which puts the emphasis on reducing risk combined with superior car control skills.

We believe that driving is a life skill and that teaching it should be about more than getting people through their test. For us, it’s a vocation, not just a job.

We use the latest training and evaluation methods, incorporating a fully-structured syllabus designed to produce drivers who are safe, courteous and confident and who actively enjoy driving from day one. Our philosophy of lifelong learning applies to us as well! So, unlike many traditional driving schools, we undergo regular, comprehensive training and Continuing Professional Development. We are trained specifically to deliver Under-17 Training and Instructor Training, just some of our products and services that go beyond those that traditional driving schools can offer.

When you embark on your driving course with Drivex Academy you have the reassurance that your personal Driving Coach is among the most highly qualified instructors in the U.K. But don't take our word for it - take a look at some of the facts:

  • All of our instructors are CRB checked and subscribe to the Driving Standards Agency Code of Conduct for Approved Driving Instructors.
  • The last time the Driving Standards Agency published instructor driving test pass rates, our instructors achieved driving test pass rates of over 90%.
  • This is double the national average pass rate and puts our instructors in the top 4% in the U.K.
  • All of our instructors are not only fully-qualified Approved Driving Instructors but are also on the Driving Standards Agency (D.S.A.) Register of Fleet Instructors. Put simply, this means that our instructors are especially trained to be able to deliver advanced driver training which puts the emphasis on reducing risk combined with superior car control skills.

'We are proud that Drivex was invited to provide editorial for the 2010 edition of the prestigious Parliamentary Yearbook in the section entitled ‘Olympics 2012 – Excellence in Health and Safety.’

  • Drivex Instructors are the only instructors on the Isle of Wight who have obtained ORDIT Instructor Training status.
  • Not only that - but Drivex is one of only 24 driver training organisations across the whole of the U.K. which has achieved D.S.A. accreditation to train traditional driving instructors up to the Fleet Standard. This is one of the very few occasions that the D.S.A. allows outside agencies to conduct official driving tests on their behalf.
  • For B+E trailer tests we present candidates at  nearly every Vocational Test Centre across the South East of England. We are achieving higher than average pass rates at every single test centre where we have presented candidates for test. This means we are achieving better pass rates than the local instructors! This undoubtedly is due to the fact that we are teaching good driving skills - learning to drive is not about learning test routes!
