Chris Bensted is  a fully qualified DVSA ADI who offers full hour lessons, 100% support and guidance on a schedule to suit you and your needs. At CB's we do not just aim to get you through your driving test. While the current driving test does its best to ensure all drivers are of a suitable ability to be let loose on the road, it doesn't necessarily mean you are fully prepared for everything life on the road will throw at you. We aim to set you up with real skills, real abilities and safe judgement for life. Allowing you to enjoy a future of driving in the real world, not just in the eyes of the DVSA.

Clutch control, Observational skills, Planning and Judgement are all skills too often neglected and left to develop on their own. We aim to ensure that they are at the forefront of our learning scheme and injected throughout the learning process. Using a mixture of tried & tested instructional techniques, modern coaching styles and some custom approaches you will  develop high level driving skills above and beyond those achieved by many Instructors.

In addition to teaching Provisional licence holders to, and beyond, a level suitable to take the Driving Test. CB's also offer a full range of driving support to enable drivers to improve existing skills, work through any problems, improve confidence, get back out on the road and even start out in a new career as professional drivers. And we promise you won't be treated like an inexperienced learner!
