SmartDriving have always enjoyed a reputation for quality, dedication and excellence that comes with testimonials and references from non other than the former Chief Driving Test Examiner, Trevor Wedge and the Authors of ‘The Driving Instructor’s Handbook’ – to name just 2!

But to win an award (2 awards!) voted for by ADIs, is the best form of recognition.

Blaine Walsh from said β€œIt is a pleasure to be working with Fresh Start β€˜14 and hosting the Golden L Fresh Awards to recognise organisations and individuals that enhance our industry and make our roads safer. We offer advice and training for learner drivers, potential driving instructors and on-going training for qualified driving instructors. Our emphasis is on increasing and improving instructor skills to ensure our pupils learn a skill for life rather than just for the driving test. To be able to recognise our unsung heroes of the driving industry is a privilege.”
The Fresh Start ’14 conference was run by driving instructors for driving instructors with companies and associations represented to give information as well as choice. This has been done to ensure our industry remains an excellent service to the public with continuous personal development for instructors.


If you are thinking of becoming a driving instructor then I can't rate SmartDriving highly enough.

The training system is excellent the virtual classrooms are enjoyable and very informative and Andrew and the team are always available to answer any queries, not matter how trivial.

Top Team who assisted me greatly in obtaining my ADI Licence.
