About Us | Herne Hill Driving School

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.

DVSA, Approved

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is responsible for all vehicle training standards. Amongst their list of responsibilities is registering and supervising quality approved driving instructors (also known as ADI's). While serving as ADI's, we are required to undergo fixed interval tests to ensure we continue to have the ability to instruct learner drivers.

Perhaps our most crucial responsibility is keeping pupils safe and promoting a culture of responsible road use via our driving lessons. All good driving schools know that nothing is more essential than the welfare of pupils and fellow road users’ safety.
