Hello! My name is Peter Western, the proprietor and supervisor of Herne Hill Driving School. I established HHDS in 2006 and am delighted to share that it has effectively assisted learners in acquiring driving skills since then. I vividly remember the joy of passing my driving test when I was 17. The independence and versatility of travelling wherever I desired left an enduring impression on me. Now, I witness the same enthusiasm on my students’ faces when they pass their exams.

I have 44 years of experience driving various vehicles and 23 years of experience as a driving instructor, with previous employment at two driving schools.

Herne Hill Driving School is particular about picking instructors with vast knowledge and experience. Our instructors strive to provide a secure and welcoming learning atmosphere while ensuring learning is fun for every student. Our primary objective is to assist each student in becoming a competent and responsible driver.

Ask questions if you are unsure about something
Automatic cars are now increasingly common, not only are they easier (and more relaxing) to drive than a manual, in some cases they can be better on fuel and can cost less to maintain. Automatic cars are generally easier and quicker to learn in since there is no emphasis on learning to use the clutch or gearstick, this means it´s more than likely going to be more expensive to learn to drive a manual car as you will need more lessons.
The first thing to bear in mind is if you learn to drive in an automatic car, you will only be allowed to drive automatic cars going forward whereas if you learn in a manual you can choose whether you want to drive a manual or automatic once you�ve passed your test.
A manual licence covers both types of cars while an automatic licence only covers automatic cars. However, the cost of driving lessons isn�t cheap and, inevitably, learning to drive in a manual car takes longer as you have to be trained to use the clutch and the gearbox. This means it�s more than likely going to be more expensive to learn to drive a manual car as you will need more lessons
However, automatic lessons are often more expensive so it�s worth doing the maths before you make your decision.

1- CANCELLATIONS

All cancellations must be made 48 hours before the time of the booked lesson or the normal lesson fee will be charged
