About Our Lessons.

We are a local and independent firm, committed to a high standard of driving which is why we have all obtained a Gold grade in advanced driving with RoSPA/ADAS, the highest driving qualification a civilian can get outside of the police force.

We’ll pick you up from your door, and begin by reviewing your last lesson. Once we have agreed on the learning objectives for the lesson in hand, we will start to work towards achieving those requirements.

A lesson may involve town driving, rural driving or a short trip on the dual carriageway as the requirements dictate. We can offer extended blocks if something specific is required as well as offering a multitude of specialist courses.

As the lesson draws to a close we review and plan what the next action will be, whether that’s continuing a series of instruction or passing your driving test.

A license is just the start of your driving life, many students will then spend a lesson or two applying what they have learnt to go on to become safer drivers.

About The Cars

Our cars are dual controlled training vehicles which are specially designed to maximise both safety and confidence and help learners achieve their goals. An important factor in this is our fuel choice. We prefer petrol powered vehicles because it is our belief that they provide the learner with a well rounded driving experience developing full and effective clutch control suitable for use in any vehicle, but we also offer diesel options or an automatic vehicle if you prefer.

The Automatic Choice

We have a dedicated automatic vehicle in our fleet allowing us to offer a wider range of choices to our learners.

The Instructors.



Proprietor & Principal Trainer

Guy was born and bred in Taunton and has lived here for over fifty years. I have extensive knowledge of the area so you know you are always in safe hands. With over forty years of driving experience behind me, opening a driving school was a logical step for me as I felt that it was necessary to pass on the benefits of my knowledge and experience to prospective drivers.



Our Female Instructor who joined Alpha in June 2012 having been an Instructor since 2008. She is a member of TADI – Taunton Association of Driving Instructors, MSA – Motor Schools Association, has kept up with her CPD – Continued Professional Development and also holds a RoSPA Gold Grade. She is very friendly and approachable.



The Automatic Specialist in the Alpha Driving School Team. Greg speaks fluent Polish and English and will be able to help linguistically in preparation for the theory test as you learn. With several years of experience as an instructor he is able to maintain a calm and friendly atmosphere throughout the learning experience.



Local lad, I have been involved in training for much of my working life in many different guises and becoming a Driving Instructor seemed to be almost a natural progression to make, plus I do get a huge amount of satisfaction watching students develop and their confidence increase and ultimately passing their test. 


 I became a driving instructor in 2016 because I have a passion for driving as well as teaching. I enjoy the interaction with my students and enabling them to move forwards in their driving ambitions!
