About my driving school

My driving school has been helping new drivers pass their test in the Oxford and surrounding area on a regular basis since being set up in 2011 by displaying both sensitivity and patience, I can prepare candidates for both the theoretical and practical tests.


I aim to build up their confidence in many different driving situations and pass on all the knowledge they'll need for their future on the road.


Some background information about me:

  • a friendly and professional instructor available for appointments six days a week, including weekends and Bank Holidays

  • Ioffer traditional driving instruction as well as intensive courses if required.

  • a driving instructor who is patient, sensitive and professionally qualified.

One Way driving school Oxford

 Is an independent DSA approved instructor based in the Oxford area working in conjunction with the Red driving school to offer very high quality lessons to residents of Oxford and the surrounding areas of Abingdon, Didcot, Kidlington, and Wantage.

I pride myself in being honest, calm and patient I am offering a first class service, I am fully qualified, vetted and CRB checked, I was previously trained a a Police driver and had over 20 years experience of driving Police vehicles. Lessons will be conducted in a modern, clean, air conditioned and well maintained dual controlled (seperate instructor pedals) vehicles.

I might not be offering the cheapest driving lessons in Oxford, but I strive to be one of the best when it comes to offering value for money, provide you with the best tuition that adapted to suit every individuals ability, and I will not withold information or try to prolong tuition to earn more from you as the learner driver. I charge a price I believe is fair, and in return you get my full and undivided attention for the full duration of the training session (no mobile phone calls, texting or pulling you over on the side of the road to give you a 15min lecture after making a driving error). If you've failed a practical test, and come to me for remedial training, if I can rectify your errors in 2 hrs I will because I want you go away satisfied and spead the word about my driving school. One unhappy client learner driver is too many, and I will not sacrifice my quality for the sake of an extra driving lesson.

As a qualified driving instructor I work primarily in the Oxford UK area, with most driving tests being booked in to the local Oxford dsa testing centre, though I can accommodate Banbury or Newbury, but you need to give me adequate advance notice as it takes longer to get there and I don't like cancelling other provisional licence holder's tuition just to go for a test.

Nothing in life is free except the air we breathe but I have discounts available for block advance bookings, see the driving lessons prices for details, and I am sure you will be impressed with the service that I offer to Oxfordshire residents, when learning to drive we all want to go “One Way” and that’s forwards to a successful test pass so for further details contact me today to discuss your requirements.


Cockpit Drill and Basic car Controls

Why pay a driving instructor to teach you the cockpit drill and the basic car controls such as accelerator, brake, gears and indicators when a family member, friend or even your neighbour (if you get on with them) can do this. Since you will not be driving the car, you don't need insurance to learn these basics, and the time learnt doing this will mean you have more time to learn the more practical driving skills like moving off and stopping during your first lesson (make sure you let the instructor know you've been taught these skills).

These are some of the things you can do as a learner driver who has just recieved their provisional driving licence in Oxford before booking your tuition.

If for any reason you haven't been able to complete the steps above, in particuar the cockpit drill, It is recommend that you book a 2hr slot for your first driving lesson (see lesson price guide for introductory lesson offer) because as you are well aware, the roads in Oxford can be very narrow in places, busy, and some of them are particularly unsuited for beginners, this means that the instructor will have to drive you to a more suitable location in Oxford or a neighbouring town, (depending on where you are collected from) and depending on the time of the day, it could take 15-20 minutes to get to a suitable training location, so you will not get much out of a 1 hour driving lesson in your early days as a learner driver.

I hope this information has been helpful to you, and look forward to hearing from you once you decide it is time for some practical on the road experience.


Highway Code and Theory Preparation

Even before your driving licence arrives or you apply for one via your local post office, there is nothing wrong with getting a copy of some theory test software CDs and start reading for this test, you will start to build up knowledge that will help you to learn faster and make more progress when it comes to the practical aspects of driving a car. Recognising signs such as give ways will mean when you start dealing with junctions you'll understand exactly what yielding to traffic on the major road means.

You will also be in a better position of thinking about booking the theory test (which you have to pass first before you can book the practical one), and thus a step closer to getting a full British licence which is why you are taking driving lessons.


Eye Sight check

Another legal requirement that you will need to fufill before you start your first driving lesson is an eye sight test to confirm you are able to read DVLA specification car registration plates from a distance of 20.5m, so if you require glasses to see at that distance, make sure you take them along every single time you have a lesson, as you don't want to get penalty points on your provisional licence.

Provisional driving licence

You will need to present  your provisional licence to your instructor on your first meeting to verify your identity and certify that you are qualified to be in charge of the driving school car (checks include making sure you are at the legal age of 17, the licence belongs to you and will therefore be covered by the instructors insurance and that you haven't been banned by a magistrates court). If you don't have this document, then your training session will not be able to go ahead.
