Our approach

We provide all our clients with Theory and Hazard perception support and will actively encourage clients to start preparing early.  We offer all our clients Mock theory tests on in car computers so the instructor and client can both monitor the progress being made.

We provide all our clients with the necessary New edition Highway Code (Digital version) and more than 40 various handouts via email which will supplement and support all aspects of your driving experience up to and beyond your driving test, as we believe that driving is a skill for life.

The best way of learning to drive is by having professional lessons and supplementing these with plenty of private practice, this can be with either family or friends. We can give you advice as to how they can help and what with. In this way you can be sure that you will reach test requirements in the shortest possible time, but to the highest possible standards.

Thanks Wayne, WE DID IT! its like a dream come true, passing the practical test on my first attempt and it only took a week.. your positive and cheerful attitude always helped and gave me the confidence to drive, ” The Wayne’s Way” really works! I can’t thank you enough and will recommend you to anyone I know, without a doubt. Ali

A big thank you to Wayne for all your help and perseverance over the last few months. I previously had 2 other instructors and I just wanted to give up, but after a recommendation  from a work colleague, I called Chevron School of Motoring and spoke to Wayne, who was to be my 3rd instructor, after a short time with Wayne, I thought I can do this.. and I DID! I can’t thank you enough, for all your help.  I know I must have caused you a few headaches although you never showed it!  ha-ha. I promise you, I will be singing your praises to everyone. What a great Instructor. Don’t know what I am going to do with my Mondays and Wednesdays now? You may have lost a pupil but you have gained a friend. Thank you so much. Andrea

Over the past 4 years i have tried several driving schools but never felt as comfortable as i did when i met Wayne from Chevron School of Motoring.   After making the initial call and speaking to Wayne, i truly felt that this is going to work and for the first time i believed that i can pass my test.  After passing my Theory test, something of which i felt i could never do, after failing 5 times.. but with help and guidance, I have now passed my Driving test after only 4 months, I cannot recommend WAYNE and his team at Chevron enough, the professionalism that they show is second to none, nothing is to much for them, from the initial phone call, which i thought was the hardest part to the meeting up on the 1st lesson was smooth, and as i stated at the beginning, it was Inspirational.  Wayne gave me so much confidence and positivity in my own abilities, something of which i am carrying on as im now driving on my own… even though i have called him on his mobile a couple of times for advice,  he is always there for me even after passing!! He’s a Star very passionate about his job!

If you are considering taking up driving, which is something we all have to do, please call Chevron and if you get WAYNE as your instructor you will see what i mean, he is a True professional.

Thank you all at Chevron.
