Driving lessons

Professional and personable

Simon Richards Driving School in Herne Bay has been delivering the highest quality driving experience in Herne Bay, Canterbury, Whitstable and the surrounding areas for new drivers since 2006.

Simon founded SRDS after leaving a national driving school so that he could provide a learning experience that was based on great service, enjoyment and a rewarding experience.

Often, by using a larger driving school, you’re not given the attention and treatment that you deserve. With SRDS, you’ll be respected, you’ll receive professional and personable service and you’ll learn at a pace that you’re comfortable with.

High first time pass rate

We follow a learning process that has proven to achieve a much higher first time pass rate than the national average. So if you want to be on the roads sooner, you've come to the right place.

Making learning to drive enjoyable

We are passionate about making your 'learn to drive' experience enjoyable and fun whilst, at the same time, ensuring that you don't just learn to drive; you learn to drive well.

Excellent reputation, affordable prices

SRDS has established itself as one of the best local driving schools in Herne bay, Canterbury and Whitstable. We have a reputation for providing cheaper driving lessons than others in the area, meaning you get value for money and quality instruction together.
