Looking For Driving Lessons In Coventry?

Many driving schools in Coventry make ‘Silly Offers’ – 5 Hours for £25 – 10 Hours for £99 – Pass In A Week –  that sort of thing. Well not me!

Let me explain…

I pick up lots of pupils who’ve had driving lessons in Coventry with other driving instructors, sometimes with several other driving instructors. They switch driving instructors for all kinds of reasons, some genuine, some not. But one of the reasons they switch is because of the ‘extra’ they’re expected to pay once their introductory period is over.

With me, you’ll know exactly how much you’ll need to pay from start to finish.

I also pick up a lot of pupils who tell me they’ve had 60+ hours with another driving instructor…


The average, according to the DSA, is 45 hours of driving lessons before passing a driving test. Personally I like to think of that as a MAXIMUM not an average.

I believe I can teach ANYONE how to drive in about 20 hours of driving lessons in Coventry. That’s right TWENTY hours. Then with a bit more PRACTICE, say 10 to 15 hours, you should be up to DRIVING TEST STANDARD.

So would you prefer to pay ‘Joe Bloggs’ Driving School £23 per hour for 60+ hours or Phill Godridge Driving School £30 per hour for 30-35 hours? You do the maths…

Here’s My Prices:

1 Hour Driving Lesson – £30.00

10 hr Block Booking – £285 (£28.50/hr)
20 hr Block Booking – £560 (£28.00/hr)

(PassPlus/Motorway – £40.00 per hour)

When You Take Driving Lessons in Coventry with Phill Godridge Driving School.

It’s NOT just about the driving lessons…

If you want Driving Tuition in Coventry and have been searching around for the right Driving School in Coventry, please give me just 5 minutes to introduce myself and show you exactly what I can do to Help You Pass Your Driving Test in Coventry.

My name is Phill Godridge.

Phill Godridge Driving School Coventry

Hi, this is me!

I’ve been a Professional Driving Instructor running my own Independent Driving School in Coventry for over 20 years.

In fact Phill Godridge Driving School was established in Coventry in 1997 and before that I had been a franchised driving instructor with Acclaim Driving Academy since February 1996.

In that time I’ve personally taught well over 500 people to drive.
(…and counting!)

I have two very simple aims…

Passing the driving test in Coventry

Leix Passed His Driving Test in Warwick

1. You will learn how to drive.

2. You will learn how to pass your driving test.

“Aren’t they the same thing?” Well… No, not really. It would be nice to think that everyone would drive the way they were taught to pass a driving test, but in reality that does not happen.

My First Aim… is to teach you how to correctly control the car and to give you the skills and ability to improvise when needed. Not everything will be rehearsed and not everything will be obvious. But with my guidance, you will gain the experience to deal with whatever the road throws at you.

My Second Aim… is to get you up to a consistent level of driving so that you can drive around a complete driving test route without losing concentration and making silly mistakes.

But You Don’t Know Me!

So Here’s A Little More About Me …and My Coventry Based Driving School.

As a Driving Instructor living in Coventry, I focus my instructing in and around the Coventry area but if you live in Coventry and wish to take your driving test at Warwick Driving Test Centre instead of Coventry, then give me a call.

  • Every year I keep accurate records of my pupils’ successes and average about a 60% first time pass rate. Simply put that means that MORE THAN HALF (but not all) of my pupils pass the driving test on the first attempt.
  • You can book Driving Lessons in Coventry in 1 hour or 2 hour slots with no ‘piggy-backing’. In other words you will have the full hour, or two, to yourself in the car, picked up and dropped off from home, work or college.

I do work on a first-come-first-served basis, so advanced bookings are advised.

I am a registered member of the DIA and the Professional Driving Instructors Association, Coventry.

Majid Passed His Driving Test in Coventry

“Hi Phill… Remember me?

It is 5 years today since I passed my Driving Test (first go), I never thought I would get there, but thanks to you I did. Since then I am now driving a Volkswagon Golf TSI 2009. I have driven to Scotland and back (besides all over Scotland) 4 times. This time last year I drove in a hired car around Durban South Africa and on a Safari.

I was 50 when I passed my test and it has opened up a whole new world, seeing places I would not have seen otherwise. I would advise anybody not to let age put them off. I cried many tears trying, and at one point I did not think I could do it, but I did and that is thanks to you. October The Lake District and hopefully many more years.

Thanks Phill. Shelly”

“Hi Phill, I am writing to you to thank you for your help in getting me through my driving test. I would like it to be known to anyone of interest that I would highly recommend you as their driving instructor, as you are calming and reassuring in the way you give instruction and tutoring. So if you ever need a reference please do not hesitate in using this email or giving my name.

Once again thank you.

All the best, Lynne”

Scott Passed His Driving Test in Coventry

“Hi Phill, long time since I’ve been in touch, thought I’d update you with my driving progress!

3 weeks after passing the test in March I purchased a Mk3 VW Polo, ’94 (M Reg) 1.3l at a bargain price with 11 months MOT and 5 months tax. It had 44,000 on the clock with one lady owner for the majority of it’s life.

Since March the Polo’s run up to 53,000.

Have also driven a few more modern cars with work and adapted well to them each time. Driving comes quite naturally to me now.

I want to thank you for your patience and easy nature during my lessons. Though most of the time I was a nervous wreck or in panic mode your ability to talk me through the procedures made it possible. Thank you.

I hope you are well and business is growing and continues to do so. I will surely recommend you to all friends wanting to learn.

All the best, Chris”
