Meet Your Driving Instructor
ExperienceOliver Smith is the owner of Totally Driving – A DSA Fully Approved Driving instructor with 9 years experience in driver training. Trained by the AA and with previous experience working for BSM driving school and a number of the smaller local companies.
Bespoke TuitionOliver has well over 150 passed pupils behind him with an extremely high first time pass rate. He uses his 10000s of hour of driver tuition to create bespoke lessons to for every student to help maximise confidence and increase driving ability in the shortest time.
"Teaching people to drive requires many skills but the most important is an understanding of emotions involved when learning something new and complex. I find patience and a very calm environment, even in a challenging situation, is the biggest key to success with my students."
Our Approach To Teaching People To Drive.Oliver’s outlook on how he teaches his pupils is based heavily on creating a level of confidence, which is instilled into his students. This helps them progress at a steady pace with very little of the nerves that’s often experienced when learning to drive. Some instructors choose to push their students, sometimes adding additional stress, which Oliver completely disagrees with.

Years of ExperienceAfter building up many years of driver training experience, Oliver decided to setup his own driving school with the intention of giving a more bespoke, personal feel to driving lessons that he felt wasn’t offered. Totally Driving has now built its reputation on fitting each lesson to the needs of the pupil; something Oliver feels is lacking with the large multi-regional schools.
Totally Driving is proud of its reputation it has built with more than 60% of its new students taking lessons having been recommend.
