I would 100% recommend Haydn to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Very easy to talk to and has a good sense of humour. Stays very patient and calm while teaching which helps settle your nerves, and definitely helped me when it came to getting over a mistake I made and getting over some pre-test nerves! Thank you so much!

I was told to try and get in touch with Haydn as he was highly recommended to me.
I am happy I did as I was looking at trying to drive a left handed throttle car as my new mobility car was being fitted with a left hand throttle I found it very weird to do but Haydn helped to relax me and got me going well with it.
The way Haydn got me to get use to driving it left footed was make it a very relaxed and happy atmosphere in the car and we were just chatting and laughing which took my mind off it and now I feel with his help I can now go ahead comfortably and drive my new car with out worrying about it all the time.
I would highly recommend anyone to get in touch with Haydn as he will get you up and moving again with the best form of attachment you need on your car I would give 5 out of 5 for this service.
Go on do it you will not regret going for a drive

Customer Testimonials

Amazing had my first driving taster lesson at mobility road show and I loved it since then I've had the driving bug wanting to do it again (will one day). Even went out on to the set out track couldn't been any better. Thank you hopefully we will meet again.


I had a industrial accident at work and had not driven for over twelve months, I was put in contact with haydn, not only did he contact me straight away, he fitted me in to a driving plan straight away, his professional but relaxed approach was appreciated and has got me back on the road many thanks


Haydn came to deliver a talk to my ADI association about teaching people to drive with Specific Educational Needs and Disabilites. He came across as very professional, but friendly and approachable. I went away with a great deal more knowledge on the subject, and had numerous other ADIs tell me how enjoyable and informative it was. I will always go to Haydn for advice on this subject where he clearly has a vast experience and knowledge. He has a real passion for getting people the independence of driving, whatever their ability. That passion goes as far as helping other instructors to do the same. I wouldn't hesitate to call on his expertise again. Thank you once again, Haydn.

From Our Website

Unlike some driving schools/Instructors Alpha Specialise and only offer Automatic Driving tuition, for many driving schools getting an older automatic car is a way of filling an empty diary, Alpha has years of experience training clients to drive automatic cars, whatever your requirements passing the L test, confidence building sessions, rehabilitation or refresher training of experienced drivers, we can Help you. Occupational Therapists, I can work with you to arrange for your client to learn or return to driving.


With our fully adapted vehicle we are able to provide driving tuition to our disabled clients. We are recommended by the county's leading vehicle adaptation specialists, All Shropshire Mobility. We can provide driving tuition to all clients that are over the age of 17 (16 if in receipt of enhanced rate mobility DLA or PIP). Alpha Automatic Driver Training is specialist provider of training for clients with Specific Needs. I run a modified Vauxhall Meriva Automatic suitable for a wide range of disabilities.


Being Familiar and confident, with your adaptations is paramount to you and your passengers safety, using adaptations for the first time can be very stressful, you can make your first time less stressful by being in a safe controlled environment of an adapted dual controlled vehicle. I strongly believe along with many other driver trainers, that money spent on training, before using adaptations or an adapted driving style, is not only safer but could also be cost effective, being cheaper in the long run than the expense and hassle, of dealing with a possible aftermath of an Accident (RTC).


Haydn is delighted to have jointly won the Intelligent Instructor award for Special Educational Needs Provider of the Year 2019. Haydn Jenkins, Winner of Disabled Motoring UK's Award for the Best Driving Instructor for those with Specific needs. Haydn Jenkins from Alpha Automatic Driving Lessons Shrewsbury has been awarded Special Educational Needs Instructor of the year award. I'm very grateful to Haydn for all the informal (and free) advice he offers to me and many other specialist instructors around the country.


Please note Alpha, Will happily give tuition in a clients own vehicle if a dual instructor brake is fitted. Where a dual brake is not fitted then a risk assessment will be carried out, without a DUAL brake the Driving instructor has little or no control over the vehicle. ALPHA's tuition vehicle can cover about 95% of clients with specific physical driving and mobility needs, but there will be a few clients who either, cannot transfer into my vehicle or they require adaptation which are very complex, this is when we look into tuition in the clients own vehicle.


Some areas due to location will need to be a minimum number of hours in order to make it financially viable. Although I can help more clients, if the client's travel to Shrewsbury for their tuition.


At the start of your practical driving test the examiner will ask you two "Show me Tell Me" questions. The questions concern general maintenance and safety checks on your car. Q1 When it's safe to do so, can you show me how you wash and clean the rear windscreen? A. Operate the washers and wipers are on the right hand stalk, push away from you for rear wash/wiper. Q2 When it's safe to do so, can you show me how you wash and clean the front windscreen? A. Operate the washers and wipers are on the right hand stalk towards you for front wash/wiper.


The theory test is made up of a multiple choice part and a hazard perception part. You need to pass both parts to pass it. Once you have passed the theory test you can then apply to take your practical driving test. The multiple choice part is delivered using a touch screen computer and the hazard perception part records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button. If you pass one part and fail the other you'll fail the whole test, and you'll need to take both parts again. Before the test starts you'll be given instructions on how the test works.
