Drive with ECPC

“I had taken driving lessons with other schools before working with Steve, but he was the only one who got me to a satisfactory standard for the driving test, and in a short amount of time too. I felt I was constantly learning and improving, thanks to his guidance.

“Steve really inspires you to be a better driver, and I feel I've gained a skill for life. The lessons were friendly & relaxed, but were also very informative, and I can only urge those looking for lessons to get in touch.” Chris, 24, from Shoreham, passed the test in November 2007.

Driving Lessons for You

If passing the test is your goal, Sevenoaks Test Centre had a 52.3% pass rate in 2014-15. My pass rate in Sevenoaks is 59.1% (out of 472 tests). In 2013 my pass rate was 62.7% (51 tests) and 64.7% in 2014 (34 tests), plus a successful taxi test, 2015 finished with 63.6% (44 tests) including 2 with zero faults on their first attempt. 2016 continued this consistent pattern with a pass rate of 65.3% (49 tests).

ECPC pupils pass the test with significantly fewer attempts than the average. You’ll save a lot of time and money by learning with ECPC!

Many of our pupils are just beginning to drive, but many are more experienced; some have full licences already. We’ll devise a personal learning programme that meets your needs. So, whether you’ve just got your Provisional licence, have almost given up trying to pass the test or have been driving for years in another country, visit the Preparing for the Test page. If you want to do a Pass Plus course, or just need help parking your new car or braving the motorway, click to our Beyond the Test page.

Fun, Safety and Comfort

We create a safe and comfortable atmosphere which makes learning fun, and we’ll give you all the information and feedback you need to develop your driving quickly and effectively.

Cars are always new and the latest model from well up the range. Dual controls, air bags and loads of electronic systems look after safety. Adjustable steering column, lots of seat height adjustment and plenty of headroom and space for the driver’s feet mean that just about anyone can sit comfortably in the cars, and there are air-conditioning, pollen filters, tinted glass, superb lighting and power steering to make sure you stay happy throughout the lesson.


Lessons last for the full time you’ve booked. If it’s a two-hour lesson, you’ll be learning and practicing for a full 120 minutes with a mix of activities, briefings and manoeuvres to help you keep concentration. Your instructor will help you improve as many aspects of your driving as possible in the lesson. It’ll be hard work, and you’ll get results!

Enjoy Your Lessons

ECPC instructors enjoy teaching. We want you to enjoy the lessons—learning’s faster when it’s fun! We enjoy the challenges of finding the best way to teach each pupil—you’re all different! Whenever we introduce a new subject, we use full-colour diagrams and briefing materials that we’ve developed ourselves, so that you can learn quicker and better.

Exclusive since 2014: ECPC have developed our own Powerpoint briefings for the more complex topics - manoeuvres, roundabouts, traffic lights, crossroads, etc. These are delivered in the car on a large tablet computer. Already it is clear that pupils learn even more quickly and effectively from these brief presentations.
