If you want Driving Lessons in Coventry and have been searching around for the right Driving School in Coventry, please give me 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.

I've been a Professional Driving Instructor running my own Independent Driving School in Coventry for over 25 years .

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

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

I have two very simple aims...

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 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 Driving School In Coventry

As a Driving Instructor in Coventry, I focus my instructing in and around the Coventry area so if YOU are from Coventry but wish to take your driving test at either the Coventry Driving Test Centre at Bayton Road or Warwick Driving Test Centre, 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 MOST ( but not all) of my pupils pass the driving test on the first attempt.

YOU can book Driving Lessons 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 .

So the big question...

My Prices:

Pay As You Go Driving Lessons - £38.00 per hour

Block Booking of 10 Hours - £350.00 (save £30) 

Hey, Don't take my word for it...

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

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
