Our 1st Time Pass Rate

Since we started monitoring our pupil’s test success, our 1st time pass rate has hit an astonishing 81%. This is amazing when you consider, the industry average is just 47%

Value for money

When you consider that up to 81% of our pupils pass their test first time, Wests offers you superb value for money.

The cost of failing a driving test is around £100-£140 (£62 for the test, 2 hours for test day & another 2 hour lesson in between) so, although other driving schools may have cheaper hourly rates……wouldn’t you rather pass first time and save yourself money in the long-run?

Why we’re different from other driving schools?

Many people don’t actually know that there are two types of driving instructors, Potential Driving Instructor (P.D.Is) and Approved Driving Instructors (A.D.Is). Potential Driving Instructors are still training to become fully qualified, meaning you end up on average taking more lessons than you need with them. Approved Driving Instructors on the other hand, are those which have completed all tests set by the DSA and are fully qualified to teach.

All our driving instructors in Romford and surrounding areas,  Wests Driving Instructors are Fully Qualified Approved Driving Instructors, providing quality tuition. Other local and national driving schools such as BSM and Red tend to use P.D.Is as part of their teams.
