About us

Congratulations on taking the first step in learning to drive, you’ve made the right choice! Choosing a driving instructor can be a daunting experience, not only are the prices something that will be the focus of your attention, but the quality, skill level, and safety of the instructor you choose will also be at the forefront of your mind when choosing the right school with which to start your driving lessons.

All our driving instructors are fully qualified and have been graded 4 and above by the DSA.

Although our lessons are not the cheapest per hour, 1st Choice pupils pass their test quicker than the national average, which means we will save you money. With 1st Choice you can be assured that you will be taught by a professional instructor. All our instructors’ cars display a GREEN badge to signify their status as a fully approved instructor by the DSA and are graded based upon how they teach. Grade 6 is the highest grade an ADI can attain. All our instructors have at least a grade 4 with the majority being grade 5.

We offer male and female driving instructors  who understand your needs and requirements and our instructors will not just teach you to pass the driving test but to learn and develop the skills that will remain with you to drive safely for life.  Learning to drive on today’s roads requires much more than just having the ability to use the controls.  At 1st Choice Driving School  we develop safe and competent drivers through one-to-one training with theoretical and practical tuition which not only prepares you for the driving test, but grows each pupil into a confident and knowledgeable driver for life.

We understand that some women may be more comfortable being taught by a female so we do offer the choice  but at 1st Choice Driving School we teach to a high standard and treat all our pupils in a very professional manner.

We know that taking driving lessons and passing your driving test can be one of life’s greatest achievements. Having the ability to drive can make a huge difference to your lifestyle, allowing for new opportunities such as higher independence and the freedom to travel and better or different career prospects.

There are no extra charges for evening or weekend driving lessons. The price we quote you will stay the same irrespective of the time of the day or day of the week. 1st Choice will quote you for 60-minute lessons. Many other schools may appear to be cheaper than us but that may be because their quote was for  45 or 50 minute lessons.

We have over twenty years of experience of giving the best service to everyone from teenagers to OAPs in and around Bicester with over 850 successful test results in that time.
