Sarah and Salvina would like to take a moment of your time to introduce Drivewell Driving Academy. We are a local Cardiff Driving School formed in 2012 by Sarah and Salvina.
We have been teaching learner drivers in the Cardiff area since 1999. We have a wealth of driving experience too, (over 35 years each) which we would love to share with you, giving you the best chance to be safe on today´s busy roads. We have an excellent first time pass rate and some fantastic reviews from our pupils which you can view. We are passionate about teaching "safe driving for life" and are members of IAM RoadSmart and the Driving Instructors Association. Our modern dual controlled Ford Fiesta econectic cars have built in Sat Navs to assist pupils with Test Preparation since the Driving Test Changes in December 2017. We also use the Tom Tom Portable Sat Nav that the DVSA Examiners use on Driving Tests to help familarise pupils and equip them for the Practical Driving Test experience.
Driving is "a skill for life" and we strive at Drivewell Driving Academy to teach you the highest standard of driving to prepare you for "safe driving for life", not just pass a test. We provide quality, structured training with lessons tailored personally, so that you can be taught at the best pace for you. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, going that extra mile on your journey to being a safe, confident, competent and independent driver. "Your success is our success". We teach with a cool,calm and patient manner, putting even the most nervous pupils at ease very quickly. We aim for lessons to be fun and you will learn in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Salvina specialises in teaching learner drivers and also enjoys delivering refresher courses for those who want to improve their confidence. She has a fun, cheerful personality and loves teaching all ages and personalities. Salvina excels with patience and customer service and is proud of her high standards often complimented by Examiners of the standard of driving pupils demonstrate on the driving test . Salvina will give lessons in English, Spaniah, Italian & Portuguese if required.
Sarah was formerly with two national driving schools, teaching and helping over 500 learners. Sarah is a GRADE A (TOP) DVSA Driving instructor. She has trained, coached and developed hundreds of Driving Instructors to become qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructors. Sarah is one of the few Driving Instructors who has extra teaching qualifications including the PGCE and BA(Hons) in Teaching and Education. This has helped gain a better understanding of learning theories and motivating post 17s behind the wheel according to their individual characters. If students are well motivated, and follow a structured training course they will do well and achieve their goals. Sarah loves driving and has done Advanced Driving obtaining ROSPA Gold and the IAM Masters Advanced Test.
In addition to beginner lessons and improver lessons, if you have failed a driving test we would love to help you and give you the best possible chance of passing your test next time with Drivewell Driving Academy. We deliver refresher courses, intensive courses, motorway tuition, Pass Plus courses, parking lessons and Advanced Driver Training.
We welcome pupils of all ages and abilities including dyslexic pupils.
