Meet Steve

Hello! My name is Steve Southerland and I am an Independent ADI who is a friendly, patient instructor with more than 30 years experience in the industry.

My approach to lessons is that driving should be taught as a skill for life and not just a way of passing the test. With this approach, my students leave me as safe and as competent as I can make them.

But I also think learning should be fun, I promise not to keep you parked at the side of the road longer than I have to – the best way to learn to drive is by driving – but do it with a smile.

My lesson times are between 8am and 7pm Monday to Fridays and 8am till 12.30 on Saturdays. I can collect you from your home, work or school and there will be no other pupils in the car with you.

My car is a Peugout 208 diesel fitted with full duel controls and air conditioning for your safety and comfort and my aim is to give quality tuition at a reasonable price And whether you want to take one lesson a week or learn to drive in a one week intensive course, each and every lesson will have a clear goal and outcomes.

Tests are normally carried out at the centres in Enfield, Chingford and Loughton. The test day costs 3 standard lessons and includes one hour thirty minutesĀ beforehand.

I have worked hard to build my reputation and the majority of my pupils come via recommendation andĀ I want you to pass your test with confidence first time. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you become a safe and competent driver. Get in touch with me to find out more.
