Gillingham, Kent, is part of the unitary authority of Medway and is one of the most well-known Medway towns. The town followed a linear development along the road from Brompton, and it dates back to the Domesday book in 1086. There is now access to Gillingham via the Medway Towns bypass, making it easy to reach by road – perhaps one of the reasons why many people in the area want to learn to drive.
"Nick has been an absolute dream instructor. When I first started I was so anxious about driving but even though I still have my moments I feel more secure about my skills. I am still nervous about my test but I think that’s normal and I really am hoping for the best."

Driving instructor in Gillingham
Every driving instructor who works for Lanes is registered as an Approved Driving Instructor with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). We work with pupils one on one, so you can learn as much as possible in the time you have with your driving instructor. They will stay with you throughout your journey towards passing your test, getting to know you and how you learn. Many of the instructors who work for us have been with us since they were trainees, so they have lots of experience behind them.
"I’ve absolutely enjoyed the experience so far. The standard of instruction has been incredible particularly given my total lack of experience in driving prior to this. 10/10."
