  • I would recommend this business

I passed my test yesterday, I took all my lessons with Rafal and he was excellent. After my first lesson I thought I would never be able to hold an English driver's license.
Only because of Rafal, in my opinion, one of the best instructors at FlexDrive, I was convinced that everything can become a reality.I highly recommend FlexDrive. FlexDrive - The best driving school in the world!!!!

A brilliant school and amazing instructor, recommended to me by a friend and I can so obviously see why! The lessons were student orientated, it was great to decide what I wanted to work on and to have the flexibility of lesson times that Chris allowed... I cannot possibly speak highly enough of FlexDrive and of Chris. 11/10

Absolutely amazing, couldn’t thank Chris enough for his patience, kind words and also making me feel like I could do it when my nerves were so bad I didn’t think I could. I recommend Chris to anyone wanting to drive he is the best instructor I could have ever hoped for! Even with bad nerves I PASSED 1st time with 2 minors

Amazing teaching. Steve was great and made a real effort in helping me, even after I needed to take my test a couple of times before I passed. But he was with me all the way and was incredibly supportive. I can't thank him enough and would definitely recommend flexidrive to any aspiring learner.

100% recommend Flexdrive to anyone, Chris was able to make me feel at ease when driving and helped to build my confidence up each lesson until I was safe and ready to take my test. Enjoying your driving lessons makes it so much easier! I passed first time with 1 minor, I honestly couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Thank you Chris!

Customer Testimonials

I started learning with Chris after a recommendation from a friend as he and his girlfriend and girlfriend's sister had all passed first time with him I decided that learning with Chris was definitely the right choice for me. Chris's laid back style of teaching is very effective as you really learn how to pick up things very quickly and he goes at the pace that you learn at. It took me a while to pick up a few things, but Chris gave me the confidence to stick with it and persevere and I passed my test first time with 6 minors!


I would like to say a very big thank you to Chris for being an excellent driving instructor, without whom I could not have passed my driving test first time. His one-on-one teaching skills are wonderful and are exactly what every learner driver needs. When every lesson starts with a smile and a handshake, you know that your instructor truly cares about making you feel as comfortable as possible. Chris really keeps your confidence high and is able to recognize what you as an individual need from each lesson, so time is never wasted. I now feel fully prepared to go out and drive on my own.


Learning to drive with Chris was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had; there was never a lesson that I didn't look forward to. For the whole time I was learning Chris was very patient and encouraging, which at times, was just what I needed. Lessons were based on what I wanted to focus on week-week and extra help was always just a phone call or text away. Chris is an EXCELLENT instructor and I would definately recommend him to anybody who wants to learn to drive!

From Our Website

Flexdrive has, and is very proud of one of the best First Time Pass Rates. There is an unbeatable pricing structure, ranging from our fantastic introductory offer to our competitively priced standard driving lessons. We also have significant block booking discounted rates and at all times you are assured the best instruction and value. Flexdrive always sets up a learning environment unique to your needs. We recognise that the "one size fits all" teaching model doesn't work - we focus on what is best for you - whilst keeping in mind the end goals of getting you safe, passing first time and all in he shortest possible time.


These type of Driving Instructors and Driving schools remain busy for good reason, and that's not because they are cheap but because their clients learn from the top teaching skills, in fewer lessons and keep on providing them with valuable referrals. Chris Howard became a Driving Instructor in 2006 having had a successful career in Engineering. He wanted to put his energies into working hard for himself rather than somebody else. He trained with Three Shires Driving Centre Ltd (the best around here)and joined them after qualifying.


A Semi Intensive driving course or semi intensive driving lessons can be arranged for you if you need to pass your driving test in a short time, perhaps for work reasons or because your theory test 2 year period is running out. As driving test waiting list times are about 6 - 8 weeks your intensive driving course would normally be conducted over that period. The amount of driving lessons you would need to pass your driving test would be discussed with you on your initial trial driving lesson, and your driving lesson schedule agreed with you.


As the years fly by and we head towards the 21st century more and more cars on our roads are automatic, increasingly electric automatics, do you know why? It's because in all this traffic we now have is a right pain having to work through the gears. Driving an automatic car however has more advantages, it's a doddle, only 2 pedals and no gears. Just steer and only use one foot for the brake and accelerator - keep your hands on the steering wheel, no need to move it off to change gear. Your automatic lessons are in a very relaxed and calm environment- there's no gears or clutch, it does it all for you.


Our Rushden Driving instructors Nigel Coleman, Steve White and Marzena Witkowska will put you first when it comes to YOUR learning. Its Quality not Quantity for us - saving you money in the long run.

Our Standards Check Trainer is a Grade A with 49 out of a possible 51 maximum points and was disappointed to have dropped 2. The SE in the post lesson debrief was even kind enough to even suggest that if he was ever asked who to recommend as a trainer it would be him. The Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) published the 'National standard for driver and rider training' during 2011 outlining what is needed to be an competent trainer. The new structure replaces the old structure that was made up of 6 grades ranging from grade 1 to grade 6, which was not well understood by the general public.


Congratulations, you have just passed your driving test and are now able to go solo. But this is just the start of your journey. What can you do to further improve your driving standard and possibly save yourself some money? FlexDrive offers Pass Plus lessons in Wellingborough, Kettering, Northampton, Corby and the surrounding villages in either one of our cars or using your own. This gives you real life experience of how other drivers treat you as they would any other driver. It's an eye-opener!
