Medway is a unitary authority formed in 1998, consisting of the towns Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham, Rochester, Strood, and other small towns and villages. It is known for lying on the River Medway, which has been significant throughout its history. As more than half of the area is classed as rural, driving gives residents much greater freedom, so driving lessons with a good instructor are much needed.

"I enjoyed everything. First of all because Roy is very polite and friendly. He gave me plenty of advice which helped me to pass the test. I would highly recommend Roy at Lanes School of Driving."

"I switched from my previous instructor to Paul as I didn’t feel I was progressing, and this affected my confidence. Since commencing my lessons with Paul my confidence has returned due to his brilliant methods of teaching. He puts me at ease, explains things very well and is extremely patient. Previously I was struggling with my parallel parking, bay parking and clutch control. Thanks to Paul I am now able to do these things. I enjoy my lessons and feel that I am becoming a confident driver. Thank you Paul!"
