Central Driver Training, 29 years of driver training. One of our directors was part of the original team. Prior to being called Central this family owned driving school was trading for three years from 1984.
Over the years the business has seen many changes, licences became two part and now one part again. The driving test has changed dramatically in that time, with 1996 seeing a written theory test, this evolved into computer based test in 2000, in 2002 the hazard perception element was added, this changed again in 2015 with the clips being computer generated.
Reverse exercises had parking manoeuvres included, and this element of the test is again under review.
Our priority is a friendly, professional service, our instructors have additional qualifications above the standard ADI licence to teach and two of our directors have a diploma in driving instruction.
