Who are we?

A little about us, we are a pupil focused driving school, we offer a high standard of driving lessons on automatic & manual cars through our professional DVSA approved driving instructors.

We treat each pupil as an individual and cater to each individual’s specific needs, and teach accordingly. We provide a variety of different lessons, from a standard lesson to pass plus and provide instructor courses. All our lessons are one to one which means you will take full advantage of every penny spent. We deliver automatic and manual lessons. All our cars are fitted with dual controls and fully insured for pupils whilst driving and accompanied by our instructors and DVSA examiner. We are members of the DIA Driving Instructor Association amongst other driving associations.

We are located just south of the River Thames. Covering Lambeth, Battersea, Vauxhall, Pimlico, Streatham Vale, Stockwell, Brixton and much more. We are happy to meet the student in a convenient station if the student lives outside the covered area.
We do not book different lessons back to back, and as such, leave enough time to get from one client and to the other client another. Without the panic of rushing across central London, because of this, you are guaranteed to get every minute of the lesson you pay for.

We currently only have fully qualified and approved DVSA driving instructors with years of experience as drivers and driving instructors. Have a look at our driving lessons page, for the full list of what offers we have. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us.

Not only we do learner drivers but we also driving instructor training. We use top graded driving instructors trainer which are all ORDIT, for more details CLICK HERE.

Here’s what our happy drivers had to say about our services:

Exceptional classes, quality training, and informative instruction. In less than 40 hours of driving, I was able to attain a full driving licence by passing the driving practice exam with the help given by Antonio and his car. I cannot recommend this school highly enough.

Hans Coessens

John has been a great instructor and it was a pleasure learning from him. He is very friendly and made me feel at ease even when I was nervous. He is stern when he needs to be and I can feel I have improved a lot thanks to his teachings. Highly recommend!

Sarah A.

Antonio is such a good driving instructor, he cares enough to prepare you for real life driving, not just to pass the test. Passed first time and feel comfortable driving due to my lessons! I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn how to be a safe and responsible driver. Thank you Antonio!

Sophia Teixeira

Antonio was a great driving instructor, he doesn’t only prepare you for the test but also for real life driving experience. He goes above and beyond the basics of driving which helped me to pass first time with only 3 minors. Thank you Antonio!

Chris Ogunlana

I took my test on 5th March and I passed 1st time with only 6 faults thanks to John. He is brilliant, professional, patient, experienced and very very friendly. John always made me confidence while driving, he is strict but because he cares about my driving skills and safety in the road, so when the time comes I would be fully and well prepared, both for the driving test and independent driving in the future. I totally recommend Tuga driving school and John, it will be worth it every penny.
