DRIVE WITH DAN,
Choosing a driving instructor can be difficult when there are so many driving schools. Southampton is no different to any busy town, you have lots of choice. I offer a competive service in a relaxed environment so you will find learning fun.

Lessons are on a one-to-one basis. I am a friendly calm and reliable instructor and will teach you the skills required to become a confident and competent driver. Just teaching you how to pass your test is not enough. With more and more traffic on our roads you will need the skills to be a safe driver for life.

Drive With Dan can give you an introductory lesson of 2 hours for just ?15. Your next 1 hour of instruction is also just ?15. After this it is ?21 per hour or ?20 if you qualify for discounts.

Give me a call today to see how i can help you on the road to independent driving.

All ages and abilities are catered for.

I passed first time with confidence. Dan is a brilliant instructor who made me feel calm and relaxed behind the wheel. He helped me overcome by fears without being too pushy. I was able to progress each lesson at my own pace. I highly recommend Dan as an instructor whatever your level of driving.

Turned my worries of learning to drive into a positive experience. (Passed! And not scared anymore!).

I was really nervous about learning to drive, my friend recommended Dan. I found Dan really patient and encouraging. He made me feel reassured that I was safe and he could intervene when necessary, he rationalised my concerns and eventually I began to really look forward to the lessons.
I work in the hospital and Dan was really understanding of I had issues at work and needed to delay or cancel a lesson (which happened once or twice).
If I booked for example a one hour slot, I would be driving for one hour, and have a few mins chat before and after that slot to discuss learning.
From what my friend who referred me, and the friend I referred to Dan have said, he is great at meeting each learners individual needs.
I recommend Dan, and I will see him again for a refresher before getting my first car.
I feel like Dan prepares you to be a safe/good driver, not just to pass the test.
The price is in line with the standard rate in Southampton, but the quality is excellent.

Customer Testimonials

Passed my test first time today thanks to Dan, couldn't recommend him enough. He is a fantastic instructor and would always push the right amount to ensure I was progressing each lesson but would always make sure I was comfortable doing it. Every lesson I was importing new skills and tricks into my driving so it was more safe and controlled. He was always enthusiastic and I had a blast learning to drive with him. Thanks again Dan.

I am an Approved Driving Instructor, (A.D.I) for short. This is a recognised qualification issued by the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency the organisation set up by the government to carry out your Driving test. I have over 10 years of experience of teaching people to drive around the Southampton area. I know the roads well and can help you learn them to help get you through your driving test. I have been rigorously tested to meet the requirements set out by the DVSA to teach to their standards and can therefor legally charge for this service.


Drive With Dan use the pupil friendly Ford Fiesta for driving lessons in Southampton. Comfortable and able to fit pupils of all sizes. The vehicle has great all around vision and is very comfortable to take driving lessons in. For the purpose of learning to drive we will call the inside of the the car "The Cockpit". You will learn how to work the various controls in a smooth and safe manner to give you confidence to operate when the car is in motion. The Fiesta is a manual 5 geared petrol engine.


You have 2 years from the date of this pass to take your practical driving test. Failure to do so will result in you having to retake the theory test again before you can attempt the practical driving test. You are now ready to go for a drive and to show the examiner that you can drive in a safe and competent manner. Demonstrate your ability to drive to a reasonable standard, obeying the rules of the highway code. You will have to do 1 reversing manoeuvre and possibly do an emergency stop. The examiner knows you don't have years of experience so they will not expect you to drive to as high a standard as themselves so relax and do your best.
