Are you a Non-British Resident wanting some help driving in Britain?
Are you looking to adapt your previous knowledge gained elsewhere, to be able to drive safely in Britain?
I have much experience in helping visitors (from four of the five continents) to drive safely on the British roads.
I understand that it can be very daunting to learn to drive in another country, in another language, and with different laws and standards.
I can help you gain confidence on the British roads, working towards the British standard of driving.
If you need to pass the British Driving Test, then we can work towards that.
If you just want help adapting to drive in Britain, but don't need to gain a British Licence, then no problem, we will get you the confidence and knowledge you need.
Andrew Knight understands that you may have concerns about obtaining a British Licence as a "Non-Resident", and will happily help you train and obtain the British licence.
Andrew has helped a number of foreign nationals obtain a British licence, ranging from people who have never driven before, to those who have licences from a number of countries, and want to obtain a British licence whilst in Britain.
