    WELCOME TO YOUR INDEPENDENCE

    My name is Andy Wilkinson, I am a fully qualified dvsa driving instructor.
    I passed my driving test in 1987 and qualified as an instructor in 2002.
    I started working for pass-with-flying-colours driver training in Beeston and I was there until 2012, when I then decided to form my own driving school.

    Since becoming an instructor I have taught many people ranging from the ages of 17-60 years of age.
    I am based in Ilkeston, on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
    My working areas include all the surrounding areas around Nottingham and Ilkeston.

    To understand and thrive in this business you have to have lots of patience, be friendly and approachable and be punctual. You have to have a real passion for teaching and coaching people and I believe to treat people how you would like to be treated yourself.

    The majority of my workload comes from recommendations from my previous clients and I am very proud of my first time pass rate.

    The structured course you will undertake starts with the basics and develops over time to become an advanced level, while always maintaining a relaxed environment for you to learn effectively in, I also understand that every individual learns at different rates, so the course is always set to a pace that your happy with.

    When you are at the independent stage of your driving we will then complete mock tests, this will give you an idea of how the test is conducted and get you used to the test environment, when you can pass a mock test then your ready for the real thing!

    I also use in car video playback so we can see where you´ve gone wrong on the road and by looking at the video it´s easier to put it right and helps you learn at a faster rate.

    The most important thing is that you feel happy and relaxed at all stages of the learning process and that at the end of it you feel confident and can demonstrate that you are safe driving solo.

    Learning to drive is not just about passing a test, its about having the confidence in your own abilities to drive safely for life.

    So if your looking to start a course of lessons for the first time or your partly trained or perhaps you require refresher lessons to increase your confidence, please don´t hesitate to get in touch so we can discuss all your driving requirements.

    The vehicle I use is a 2016 Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 Sri.

    I am a grade A Instructor, CRB checked and a member of the driving instructors association and adhere to the driving instructors code of conduct.

    I hold the ROSPA gold driving qualification and I´m also a tutor at the Nottingham ROSPA advanced driving group (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents)

    www.rospa.com

    You can be assured of my best attention at all times to get you on the road and ultimately SAFE DRIVING FOR LIFE.

    "Mr.Wilkinson is a absolutely great gentleman, highly recommended indeed. He is very dedicated towards his pupils and will explain things in a way which is very easy to understand. He creates a very relaxed and calm atmosphere and his humour certainly helps. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my lessons with Andy; I have learnt so many things, skills that will remain with me throughout my driving career. The prices are very reasonable; most definitely affordable if you´re a young person/student. If I had to do it all again, it´d be with Andy. Highly recommended, thank you; Mr.Wilkinson."

    SAM FRITH passed 26/11/2015

    I can´t recommend Andy enough as a driving instructor. He is genuinely passionate about what he does and he doesn´t just train you to pass your driving test, he teaches you to be a better driver when you get out on the road alone. No complaints from me 10/10

    Adam Byard

    I couldn´t have asked for a better instructor and would 100% recommend. Andy was fantastic and always patient. His excellent teaching not only got me through my test but has given me the skills I need to drive independently with confidence. All I can really say is thank you so much Andy!

    I would highly recommend Independence Driving School when your learning how to drive. Andy was an exceptional instructor and helped me pass first time! Really nice guy and you won´t be disappointed!

    If you´re a parent looking for a great company to teach your young ones how to drive then this is the guy. I rang a couple of places beforehand, only to be disappointed and put off by their lack of enthusiasm and response. Andy was quite the opposite, couldn´t be more helpful and rather than disappoint, he went out of his way to find the time to squeeze my son in for a few lessons even when he was already very busy. Great communicator, helpful, courteous, professional and full of encouragement for his students. My son passed first time after three months. Couldn´t recommend this guy highly enough, look down this page, results speak for themselves...thanks Andy !

    SERENA GATAORA passed 06/07/2016

    Andy is a genuinely nice guy. He is passionate about both driving and teaching. He is straight talking and has high standards (reflected in his high first time pass rate), but is really patient and helps through practical demonstrations and supporting literature to enable you to achieve those standards. He teaches you to be a safe driver not just how to pass a test. His website and supporting media are great learning aids that supported me in passing both theory and practical.

    I would highly recommend Andy (Independence Driving School) not only to the general public but to friends and family to.

Booking lessons is really easy as Andy is very flexible and will work around when your available. I felt really prepared for my test which took some of the fear out of it and helped me to pass first time. I would highly recommend learning with Andy. Thank you

    I would 100% recommend Andy as a driving instructor! I was such a nervous driver to start with but now I can´t believe how comfortable and safe I feel about driving.

Sometimes I found driving very challenging and thought I would never be able to pass but with Andy´s teaching and easy maneuver techniques, I passed with only 2 minors! Thank you Andy for all your help!

    Hannah Morgan passed 03/12/2014

    Andy has been a phenomenal driving instructor! Driving has most definitely not been something that has come naturally within my abilities , his patience and talent to stay relaxed at all times despite what is happening has helped me pass. Towards the end of my driving lesson experience I began to give up and disbelieve that I could ever pass, but Andy persistently instilled my belief that I could do it. I would recommend Independence driving school to anyone has Andy works with all abilities !

    Thanks again for putting up with my ditsy ways Andy!

    My lessons with Andy have been very enjoyable. Not only does Andy teach with simple instructions but also emphasise on the individuals learning so that they are confident to drive independently in the future.

    Thanks for everything
    Cheers.

    Lizbeth Powell passed 18/12/2014

    Politely put, I found learning to drive something of a challenge. I was secretly hoping that Andy would say ´ look love, for the sake of both our sanities, stick to the bus´ but he never did,though we must have explored the outer limits of even his (renowned) patience. I don´t know who was more excited when I passed. Now Andy is nothing less than a legend in our family; the man who managed to teach mum to drive and the final authority on all things driving. Hardly a day will pass without one of us citing his many pearls of wisdom, ( it´s not an overbout, its a roundabout etc)familiar to all his pupils. Driving doesn´t get better than that.

    ELEANOR FLETTON passed 18/01/2016

    I would recommend Andy to anyone. Andy is very patient and helps you to stay calm when in difficult situations. Without this I would have found passing very difficult. Thank you Andy X

    Passed first time with 1 minor! Andy´s support and encouragement really helped me get to where I needed to be. He helped me to not only have the ability to pass but to go on to be a confident and safe driver. Andy is a great instructor and helps you feel at ease from the very first lesson. I have recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so.

    Thankyou very much Andy for helping me pass.

    I´ve probably had around 30 hours worth of lessons and it´s safe to say that Andy is the most patient person I have ever met. Not once did he give up on me and I think that´s why I managed to pass first time. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is struggling with driving, seeing as I managed to pass with around 30 hours of driving experience. Cheers Andy you´re a top man!

    The thought of learning to drive was daunting for me. But soon after meeting Andy, I felt relaxed and confident that we could get there.

    Andy was ALWAYS on time, and when extenuating circumstances did occur, he warned well in advance and offered an extremely flexible replacement lesson. In fact, he was extremely flexible with all my lessons, fitting them nicely around work.

    As for his tuition, Andy has a way of correcting your inevitable mistakes without giving you a drop in confidence. He is calm and assertive, never angry or condescending.

    If you want to learn to drive safely in the real world I would highly recommend Independence Driving School! Thanks a lot mate!

    I first started learning to drive with an instructor who was horrible but changed to Andy after hearing so many good reviews. He is the complete opposite to my first instuctor, he´s extremely patient (I can be a handful!), friendly and not once did he ever shout or get annoyed at my numerous mistakes!
    I cannot recommend Andy highly enough, he´s a brilliant driving instructor. He goes over and above what is necessary, he doesn´t just teach you to drive, he teaches you to be safe and confident with skills that will help you after you´ve passed your test.
    He´s flexible when it comes to arranging lessons and works around when you can fit them in with work/college/uni.
    I´ve passed my test first time today and I´m so grateful to Andy.
    Thank you so much for all of your help and patience Andy! xxx

    Didn´t take me long to pass my test with Andy, a brilliant instructor, I will definitely recommend to anyone. He is very patient and good at what he does. A very good decision going with this instructor. He gave me a confidence boost which I needed.

    I came from Bangladesh. In Bangladesh driving is very easy, no body respect driving rules because no fine options. But Uk is completely different and complex. Andy he was my instructor, he is very good person also good guider. I did pass in May 2012. Also I did complete pass plus with andy . I got my pass plus certificate. Once upon a time I cannot believe that I can drive in uk. But now, I am good driver and I am good driving in uk . Thanks Andy

    "Would certainly recommend Andy to anyone. Cheaper than most other local instructors, alot of patience and also makes it an enjoyable experience. I wouldn´t bet against even the most nervous learner passing 1st time!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Andy as we could always have a laugh together, however he would push when I needed to be and was always understanding if I made any mistakes, making my time with him a pleasure. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Thanks Andy.
