Welcome To DVDS Learners

Learner Drivers

Starting your journey as a learner driver will be an exciting time so for that reason it’s important to choose the right driving school.  At Dedham Vale Driving School we have experienced driving instructors, therefore giving you the option of who you learn with.  We have male and female instructors who teach in Colchester, Clacton and Ipswich and surrounding areas.  All our instructors are patient and are very supportive particularity for those students who may feel anxious about driving.  We will also give you full access to the Theory Test Pro App.

Your driving instructor will collect and drop you off from the prearranged location.  Our driving instructors teach throughout the days and evenings, as a result we can fit your driving lessons around your commitments.

Weekly Driving Lessons

Weekly driving lessons are a great way of learning to drive. We offer hourly driving lessons, one and a half or two hour blocks.
Alternatively, you may wish to increase the number of driving lessons per week.  You will receive high quality driving instruction on a one to one basis.  Your driving instructor will hold a DVSA ADI or a DVSA PDI licence.  Take a look at our lesson prices.

During your driving lessons in Colchester, Clacton or Ipswich your instructor will perform at least one mock test.  This will make sure you are fully prepared and therefore give you the best chance of passing your driving test 1st time.

We offer various intensive driving courses in Colchester and Clacton depending on your previous experience and driving ability.  It can be hard to decide which intensive course suits your particular needs so as a result of this your driving instructor will take you out for a two hour assessment.  The assessment will take place in either Colchester or Clacton.  During this assessment, your driving instructor will be able to advise you on the hours required for you to reach test standard.  The instructor will also let you know if an intensive driving course is suitable for you.

You can take as many hours of tuition per day/week as you feel comfortable with, however we do not recommend more than 5 hours per day.  With this in mind, your intensive driving course will be catered to your individual needs.

Pass Plus

The driving instructors are ‘Pass Plus’ registered.  This means we can offer you further tuition once you have passed your driving test.  The Pass Plus Course is designed to give you 6 hours more driving experience.  The course covers out of town driving, all weather driving, town driving, night driving, dual carriageway and motorway driving.  The course is designed to make you become an even more competent and confident driver.  Some insurance companies even give a discount of up to 25%.
