Choices is an independent driving school based in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire. I use a modern, air-conditioned car - currently a Peugeot e208 which is automatic and fully electric.

Choices is run solely by Barrie Pates, a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor and member of the Driving Instructor Association. Pupils receive high quality tuition including all aspects of safe driving – not just how to get them through the driving test. I am very patient and sensitive to the needs and requirements of each individual.

Each lesson is tailored to the pupil’s individual needs and follows a structured approach. A training plan is provided so that the pupil knows exactly how they are getting on and what needs to be worked on.

Pick-up & drop-off points are flexible within a reasonable travelling distance, whether it’s home, college, workplace, or just your friend’s house!

Drivng lessons are available in all surrounding areas with your test usually being taken at Hinckley test centre. I also have extensive knowledge of South Wigston & Nuneaton, so lessons and tests can also be taken there if required.

Experience: 15 years
