Welcome to Cunningham Driving School.  Your local independent driving school based in Newton Aycliffe.


My name is Kenneth, I am a fully qualified Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor (ADI),

I have had several years experience as a driving instructor and have extensive knowledge of the local area.  I am patient, friendly, calm and reliable. I enjoy the satisfaction that teaching brings and find it highly rewarding when customers pass their driving test.


I am a Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) registered instructor and have also been checked and fully comply with the requirements of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).

Whether its your first time driving or you have not driven for a while and need refresher lessons, I offer driving lessons to suit you.  I use the very latest client-centred approach to teaching, where the customer makes a welcomed and valid contribution to the learning process, this gets the very best out of every lesson.  For me, there is nothing more rewarding than teaching customers to be a safe and confident driver, for life.


The car you'll be driving is a dual-controlled Ford Fiesta Titanium x with a manual gearbox.  Features include:  satnav, ABS, climate control, fully-adjustable seats, steering wheel, quick clear windscreen, heated seats and steering wheel, reverse camera, front and rear parking sensors, side and passenger air bags, meaning every customer can feel safe and comfortable.


I understand it can be difficult to fit driving lessons in around other commitments, that is why I offer evening and weekend lessons.  I can find the perfect time to fit your driving lessons in to suit you.  Lessons are in 1, 1.5 and 2 hour time slots.  If you would like to learn to drive, please give me a call and we can come up with a personalised action plan based on your previous driving experience.  I will always give honest advice, with no pressure to book.
