About Us

1st 4 Driving Instruction is based in Ashford, Kent and run by the proprietor, Graham Hooper. Comprising a network of 20 plus instructors covering Ashford, Maidstone, Canterbury, Folkestone and Tenterden, we provide learner driver training, advance driving courses, driving instructor training and fleet.

Our Company Statement
The core contribution of teaching learner drivers is to help to improve road safety by influencing driver behaviour so as they have the correct attitude and approach, combining this with defensive driving techniques. This will mean driving with care and courtesy for everyone else, but also being prepared to make allowances for other drivers mistakes through achieving the required standard as laid down by the Driving Standards Agency.

Pupils who pass their test can be able to produce a standard of driving that fits the ethos of safe driving for life, this will include educating drivers in both the theory and practical aspects of safe driving, which will also include environmental issues and information on how to reduce road congestion.

They will also be encouraged to further their driving education by participating in the pass plus scheme once they have passed their driving test. The volume of traffic on today’s roads means that by adopting the correct attitude and by taking pride in their driving means that this convenient means of transport remains both safe and enjoyable.
