ABOUT US

About us.

1st Choice was established in 2004 and is a family run driving school based in Grimsby Northeast Lincolnshire.
I am proud of our development at 1st Choice as myself and Simon Ward have recently taken the DVSA new check test and we both got the top grade A.

Thanks to high demand and high reputation we now cover Scunthorpe and their surrounding area. Our driving instructors have structured driving lessons according with requirements that meet the DSA Syllabus standard (Driving Standards Agency).
This is one of the reasons why we achieve and maintain a high 1st time pass rate.

1st Choice offers you the choice of male and female instructors and also offers you the option to learn in manual or automatic tuition vehicles that are fully fitted with he-man dual controlled.

Our instructors will give you expert tuition in modern teaching techniques with helpful modern flip colour presenters for your lesson briefs, so that you can see what you’re trying to achieve before actually putting it into practice.

1st Choice structures their lessons to follow the DVSA Syllabus to make passing your practical test comes easier and quicker, we have helpful apps to pass on to you or hand out sheets to read.

1st Choice provides a safe environment and teaches all pupils to understand the importance of ‘safe driving for life’ and not just to pass a test.

1st Choice will ensure that you’re driving lessons cover all the skills needed to pass your practical driving test, along with theory and hazard perception training should you require it. (Please be advised the theory test and hazard perception test is required before you take your practical test).

1st Choice offers low cost and competitive prices, all our instructors are passionate and you will receive 100% professional tuition with tailor made lessons to suit the needs of all students, from the shy, nervous to advanced students.

1st Choice takes you the student into consideration and your ability to learn and we break down the briefs so you understand the topics taught.
We also know we absorb at different speeds so we tailor our lesson to suit you giving you the opportunity to have 1hr, 1.5hr or 2hr lessons so that you are not restricted to having just 1hr per lesson a week. We have found this to be a massive benefit to pupils and your pockets saving you £££.

1st Choice will pick you up and drop you off wherever you request for example: – home, college, work, train station or even the high street to do some shopping before your lesson. The choice is yours and we work around your availability. (Please ask at the time you book this lesson).

1st Choice Driving School believes that it is extremely helpful if you know the basic mechanics on how a clutch works, this will give you a better understanding of clutch control.
