About Herne Hill

Herne Hill Driving School was established in 2006 by Peter Western. Peter has over 20 years experience as a driving instructor, including previously working for two other driving schools.

Our team of instructors are personally picked by Peter for their excellence and wealth of experience they bring to Herne Hill Driving School. They are all committed to making sure each learner feels safe and confident when taking lessons but most importantly, enjoys the whole experience of learning to become a confident and safe driver.

Our instructors use dual control vehicles and employ the latest teaching techniques to ensure South East and South West London learners get the best possible start to life on the road. Our instructors live local and have an excellent knowledge of areas including those used during driving tests. We’re the trusted choice among local driving schools for learners from a wide range of backgrounds.

We provide learners with expert help and advice from first point of contact, till they’re qualified and safely on the road.
