Our Ethos
Turning Point provide you with a fully qualified, friendly and professional driving instructor with a commitment to each and every pupil.
 At Turning Point we aim to produce confident, safe, considerate drivers  who are fully equipped to deal with the demands of increasingly challenging and changing driving conditions on the roads today. We provide support for every stage of your progression towards passing your test and becoming a fully fledged driver.
Whether you are a total beginner, novice or experienced driver (but need your skills refreshing or confidence boosting!), we can provide the programme that suits you. We work from the DSA approved syllabus  utilising the skills list from the 'Driver's Record' - a document highly recommended for structured learning by the Driving Standards Agency.
Our Car
Turning Point uses the Ford Fiesta Edge 1.2; a car consistently recommended by instructors organisation, the DIA. We selected it for ease of use and control, good visibility, comfort and style! Turning Point maintain a high standard of cleanliness and mechanical service of the vehicle to ensure a pleasent driving experience.
No Trainee ADIs
We do not use trainee instructors, as is the practice of many franchises, so you can be sure you are getting a fully trained expert.
Independent Advantage
Since we are independent, not part of a franchise school, we are not subject to the pressures of meeting the high costs that some franchises demand from their instructors. As a result, we can pass savings on to you.
Flexibility to meet your needs
Turning Point prides itself on a pupil focussed ethos, our independence allows us flexibility to cater for every individual pupil's needs and ability level on a one to one basis.
Progress Tracker
We complete a progress tracker each session. This is a brief recap of what went well in the session and what areas need to be targeted next time. This way we can ensure your individual needs are catered for and you can keep track of your progress.
Mock Tests
When you are getting close to your test, we make use of 'mock tests'. Mock tests are used as a diagnostic tool to highlight strengths and weaknesses, as well as giving you an insight into the test experience and develop the mindset required to pass.
Pass Plus
In addition, at Turning Point we are 'Pass Plus' registered.This means we can offer tuition once you have passed your test that will help you become an even more competent and confident driver - with Pass Plus you even get a discount of up to 25% on some insurance premiums.
