Steve Chaplin Driving School

How to pass your (automatic) driving test without feeling nervous!

Good Evening. My name is Steve and I am a fully qualified ADI offering automatic driving lessons in Ilkeston and nearby areas. As a Pearson-accredited BTEC Level 4 Professional Award Holder in Coaching for Driver Development, I am passionate about providing a safe and enjoyable learning experience for all of my students. About Me >

I strongly believe that there are three key ingredients to providing a great service as an ADI. Firstly, safety is of the utmost importance, which is why I place a strong emphasis on managing risk and keeping my students and their fellow road users safe. Secondly, creating a positive and engaging learning environment is essential to helping my students achieve their goals. Lastly, I always aim to provide excellent value for money to ensure that my students get the most out of their lessons.

If you´re interested in booking automatic driving lessons with me, please don´t hesitate to get in touch via phone 07917 100 632 or WhatsApp. Alternatively, you can use the Contact Form on my website to send me a message and I´ll get back to you as soon as possible. Latest Reviews >

Part Trained Lessons

So you have already started to learn to drive and you are thinking of passing your driving test. My special course for people like you who have already developed skills will help you save time and money, because I will not put you on a beginners´ course.

Driving Test Rescue

I know exactly why you have been failing your driving test and actually it probably is not your fault. People who fail their test and want to change instructors do so because they feel they have not been trained fully and believe they are not 100% confident. All I want you to do is give me a call and tell me your story. I´ll then start to plan for your success...
