Maidstone is the country town of Kent, and is also just 32 miles away from London. It’s a historic town, with evidence of its existence dating back to the Stone Age – over time, it’s grown in importance and the river Medway has played a central role in this. There is great demand for driving lessons in the area, and we can help.
"After so many years of wanting to drive and looking for a female instructor I found Edwina. From being a nervous wreck with no confidence, Edwina made me relax, feel at east and has made me determined to pass my test. At the age of 52 after becoming a nanny I want to take my grandchildren out. Week 6 now – on major roads, feel confident and so relaxed and enjoying the learning experience."
