Your Driving Instructor

Colin Smith

  • I am a fully qualified driving instructor committed to continuing professional development.
  • I have been offering driving lessons in the Winchester area since August 2009.
  • I have always enjoyed driving and taught my own family to drive.
  • At my family’s suggestion I decided to become a driving instructor.
  • I find training both rewarding and enjoyable.


  • I can give you lessons in a manual or automatic car
  • If you prefer, you can take lessons in your own car
  • I also offer intensive courses of flexible course length. Advance booking advisable
  • I follow the DVSA learning to drive syllabus, which covers the 24 key driving topics you’ll be assessed on during the test.
  • As well as holding a car and motorbike licence, I also have bus and articulated lorry licences.
  • I feel this helps with anticipating other road users actions and in planning a safe response.
  • I offer manual and automatic lessons, on a one-to-one basis or you can share lessons with a friend.
  • Pupils are welcome to invite guests to observe their lessons.
  • Lessons include 10 minutes for feedback / admin.
