“My Driving Training from Graham enabled me to become a successful Driving Instructor.
He was very honest and upfront from the beginning, telling me that it would be hard work and require dedication.
Graham was very professional but approachable, and willing to answer any questions, however daft, that I had, and answered them in a way I could understand. – I would Highly recommend his company’s services. “





At 1st – 4 Driving Instruction we know that our training works as our clients still come back for their continuous professional development even after they have qualified. This has know become a requirement that all driving instructors under take further training to enhance their skills even when they are fully qualified.

1st – 4 driving instruction not only trains people to become driving instructors, we can also train the trainer once they are qualified.

Our training follows a structured pattern that allows the trainee to develop underlying core skills that are essential for any driving instructors; this proves fundamental for laying the building blocks that produce excellent driving instructors.

We cover all elements required for the first qualifying exam the test of theoretical knowledge and hazard perception. This is primarily distance learning with full tutorial support when required. The second examination is a test of driving ability that requires an advanced drive, your driving is developed so as this style of driving becomes second nature. Because our training has an holistic approach we would already have introduced elements needed for the part 3 test of instructional ability, this helps accelerate the learning process. Our methods are unique to 1st – 4 Driving Instruction and with our proven past successes we know that together we can help you achieve your own personal goals.

” My Instructor training was provided by Graham Hooper. I can say that it was well structured and enjoyable. Graham not only saw me through from Part 1 to Part 3, but helped me change my career totally from a mundane dead end job, into one with a total new skill base. First class, highly recommended! ”
