I believe the key to L Wise success is its reputation, without recommendations from pupils L Wise driving schools in Chelmford wouldn’t have survived. While working for BSM I gained my Advance Driving Instructor qualification at the instructor college in Brentwood. I have been independent since 2004 teaching in the Chelmsford and Braintree area. As a member of the National Driving Instructors Association I keep up to date with innovations and current thinking in driver training.


I love being an independent driving instructor and am 100% committed to making L Wise the best driving school in Chelmsford. Because the majority of my work is generated by recommendations from present and previous pupils customer service is very important to me. Wise reputation is based on pupils  having relaxed, friendly stress-free driving lessons tailored to giving them the best possible chance of early success of becoming a highly skilled and safe driver in as few lessons as possible.  pupils  will be carefully guided through everything they need to know to become  skilled and safe drivers for life. 


I  places great emphasis on professional standards and business ethics and agree to follow the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) code of practice.

Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions represent the basis upon which training is offered by L Wise Driving School. The provision of training is subject to the acceptance of these terms and conditions.

1. Driving licenses and fitness to drive:

You must hold a current, valid driving license, provisional, full or international, and produce it on (or in advance of) your first training session. You must be fit to drive with regard to legal and medical requirements.

2. Payments and Cancellation:

Tuition fees are normally payable in advance. Payment can be made by cash or cheque. Any cheques offered for payment that are subsequently refused by the bank will be subject to an administration charge of £15.00.

If you needs to cancel or re-arrange a lesson fees paid in advance will be carried forward; Failure to give advance notice or pupil not maintaining regular lessons may  result in a valid claim for an equivalent value in compensation.  

Your instructor will do everything possible to ensure that your lessons start and finish on time, but reserves the right to cancel, postpone or change lesson lengths and start/finish times under certain circumstances (e.g., dangerous weather conditions).

The instructor reserves the right to cancel a lesson at short notice if it is suspected that the pupil may be unfit due to the effects of alcohol, drugs (prescribed or otherwise) or any other condition that would cause his/her driving to be dangerous or illegal. In such circumstances the lesson fee will be payable.

3. Bookings and Lesson duration

Your instructor will endeavour to maintain regular lesson slots at the same time each week to ensure continuity of learning, however, this cannot be guaranteed.

The minimum lesson period is one hour. If, for any reason, the instructor will make a concerted effort to inform the pupil of the estimated time of arrival, this time will be credited to the pupil and when possible the lesson will be extended by the time due – if this is not possible the extra time will be carried forward to the next suitable lesson.

4. Training Location:

All sessions will start and finish at the same location unless alternative arrangements are made in advance. The instructor will determine a location for practical lessons which ensures both the pupil’s and public safety – this means that the instructor may need to drive the pupil to and from the lesson location; this journey time forms part of the lesson as paid for.

5. Training vehicles:

Training vehicles provided by the school are taxed, insured for the purposes of driving tuition, fully roadworthy and fitted with dual controls.

Pupils who require tuition in their own vehicle must supply evidence from their motor insurer that the car is covered for lessons when being supervised by a professional instructor in return for payment; the car must also be taxed and hold a current MOT certificate where appropriate.

6. Driving tests and bookings

Your instructor reserves the right to refuse use of a driving school vehicle for test if he/she considers that provision of a vehicle could cause a risk to public safety.

Where a school car is used for test, the booking period require is two hours.

While your instructor will make every effort to ensure that the vehicle supplied for test will be fully road worthy and comply with all legal requirements at the start of the test, he/she cannot be held responsible for vehicle failure that occurs during the test and is not liable for consequential loss.

Your instructor cannot be held responsible for test appointments cancelled by the DSA due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or other reasons. Such cancellations are beyond the control of your instructor. Your instructor will advise about claiming compensation from the DVSA .

7. Code of conduct

Your instructor agrees to abide by the conditions of the Professional Code of Conduct. In the unlikely event of complaint or dispute the guidelines of the Code of Conduct will be adhered to.
