Driving Instructor Emerald School of Motoring

The Driving School

Emerald School of Motoring was founded in 1999 by Chris Holmes because he had a desire for all of his children to learn how to drive safely.

Subsequently, more than 20 years on, his children are driving safely and the mission of the driving school remains the same. To teach you to become a safe driver and to pass your test, ideally first time.

Therefore, this means we promote the guidelines produced by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency: your safety, the safety of other road users, and pedestrians.

Moreover, you may have already guessed that we have a family ethos business. As a result, our name, Emerald, was decided upon for a few reasons.

Firstly, Emerald is the birthstone of Chris’s wife, Irene. Secondly, Emerald is considered as a strong stone of protection and was given to those who liked to travel. Lastly, Emerald is a stone that wards off negativity and brings patience.

We believe this represents our service to you and our mission to teach you to become a safe driver and to pass your test.
