Why choose iDrive Driving School





My Name is Mike Spooner


I am an ADI (Advanced fully qualified driving instructor - ADI green badge number 423240). I am an ex AA Driving School instructor. I now own and operate iDrive Driving School where my pupils are my biggest priority. Most of my pupils come to me by word of mouth recommendations. It is very important for me to make sure that all my pupils receive the best training possible. The reputation of the Driving School and my business depend on it. I guarantee that, should you decide to take driver training with me, you will always be treated to the best training I can offer. My aim is not only to train you to pass your driving test first time and as efficiently as possible but to also leave you with the knowledge to continue safe driving. I will teach the skill of driving using traditional methods blended with the new Client Centered Learning and Coaching techniques depending on your individual learning style.

 Green Badge, what does it mean?

In order to teach people to drive and receive payment instructors must be registered with the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standard Agency)ards Agency) and hold a pink trainee licence (PDI) or a green fully qualified licence (ADI). It has been recently reported by the AA Motoring Organisation that around one in every eight driving instructors currently offering driving tuition through bigger schools are PDI's (trainee driving instructors). All PDI's need to train in order to pass the DVSA part 3 instruction test. PDI's train with learner drivers whilst some schools are charging pupils the same as fully qualified instructors. When booking your driving lessons, make sure the instructor is an ADI or a PDI. The badge should be displayed on the left hand side of the windscreen.
