About Sue’s Driving School
Years of experience in LGV training
Sue is a highly experienced driving instructor with many years experience of training all kinds of categories of drivers with a consistently above average first time pass rate.

She usually trains one to one so you get what you need, hence the above average first time pass rate. The headline price elsewhere may seem cheaper but usually you are sharing so with Sue you get twice the time behind the wheel.
The fleet of vehicles are modern. The 18 tonne Scania Opticruise Cat C which has a fully automatic gear box, the C+E is a Scania fully automatic. This will give you a full manual licence if you have a category B car licence.

Nervous learners and refreshers for people who have lost confidence is a speciality. So is the teaching of Asperger’s syndrome and Dyspraxia sufferers.
Sue and her husband Simon are also qualified MiDAS trainers which is for minibus drivers and their assistants.
Sue is a very calm, patient and understanding instructor, who instills confidence and trust in her students abilities to drive. This is confirmed by her testimonials, and the most frequent comment is about how patient she is.
SAGE is another valuable service which Sue provides, which stands for Safer Driving with Age. This is an assessment drive for more mature drivers to give them help and advice to keep them safe on the road in our modern fast driving environment.
Cat B, B+E, C, C+E, D and D1 under one roof
Sue also holds a D and C+E. She has been driving vehicles like this for over 30 years, and has had a full motorcycle licence. She has her own 18 tonne horsebox which she drives on a regular basis. Sue can teach LGV and 7.5 tonne in your own vehicle. She also teaches car drivers in their own vehicles, subject to insurance.
Module 4 examiner
Sue is also qualified to examine Module 4 of the drivers qualification. Simon teaches and Sue examines and as this is done at home tests can be done at weekends and evenings.
Family run business
A husband and wife team. Simon has taught C1 and B + E since 1997 and Cat C since 2013. He is very knowledgeable in teaching, has vast experience in driving large vehicles and reversing. According to his many clients he is very patient and his pass rate is excellent as is Sue’s.
Taxi Driver Training
It is anticipated that this will become compulsory in the future for ALL taxi drivers. If you are a taxi driver, or want to be one, now is the time to do this training before the rush.
SAFED Vans and Aggregates
SAFED Vans and Aggregates instructor. In order to be trained by S A F E D Vans and Aggregates you have to be selected and trained by them for this course. There are only a handful of instructors in the region who have this qualification.
Speed Recognition Training
If you have been caught speeding Sue can give you pointers to make you more aware of the speed you are travelling, and how to control it, to hopefully avoid any future speeding problems.
This is for companies who have many drivers to undergo refresher training, and also training to reduce stress, fuel, and vehicle wear and tear. The result is better drivers, a better home life for the drivers (less stress to take home) and for the company fuel economy, reduced vehicle maintenance, and especially reduced carbon footprint. Finally it is worth noting that if any drivers undergo additional or ongoing training it may benefit by lower insurance premiums.
