At Estrela Driver Training we teach people to drive, and also offer coaching for those who want to develop further or refresh their driving skills.

The word Estrela means ‘Star’. The company ethos is that tuition is ‘pupil-centred’ so that the pupil is always the ‘Star’ in the car. We utilise innovative techniques and systems that ensure rapid success in mastering driving procedures, leading to safe driving – for the test and way beyond.

Estrela Driver Training was established in 2012 by Brian M Stratton ADI Grade A 51/51 [fewer than 1% of all ADIs have achieved this], one of the UK’s leading instructor trainers. Brian has been driving since 1973, teaching since 1986 and training others to teach since 1988. He has written many acclaimed books, CDs and DVDs about driving and teaching. Please see website for more details about the latest book ‘1771 Driving’, and how to order. Please visit for reviews and information.
