I offer driving lessons in the following areas:

Widnes, Bold, Northwich, Middlewich, Knutsford,Warrington, Holmes Chapel, Brereton & Smallwood. 

My Approach- Coaching and instruction...

B7 provides 1 to 1 lessons with the focus on training you to drive to a high standard. Safety, anticipation and forward planning are key elements of what makes a driver skilled.

B7 provides the highest quality driver training.  Lessons are tailored to learning styles and your pace of learning, to allow you to develop at a rate that is suited to you.  If you train with me, you train in depth to drive for life and pass confidently.

B7 learners share the responsibility for learning. We value safety, we train independent, skilled and responsible drivers.

I have a background in education, I am also a UEFA qualified coach and have spent my professional life developing people at elite level. You couldn’t be in better hands!!


  • Courses covering the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) requirements for learner drivers
  • Help and preparation for your Theory test, Hazard Perception test and Practical Driving test
  • Refresher Courses for qualified drivers
  • Nervous driver courses
  • Rescue training for learners that have rushed or been rushed to their test
  • Pick up and drop off at your home/college/work

My Car:

Learn to drive in a Volkswagon Polo, a Blue motion technology petrol engined care, fitted with a manual gearbox, air conditioning, dual controls and auto start technology.



Before you start learning, make sure you can read a number plate  from 20.5 metres away. For the new-style number plates ( introduced in 2001), the distance is 20 metres. If you wear glasses or contacts, make sure you always wear them when driving.






Get going '17'

Three months before your 17th birthday, you can apply for your provisional licence. At 17, you can legally drive a car on public roads in the UK. You can begin to learn if you have access to private land, as long as it's far away from public highways.  Supermarket car parks are not suitable!




L plates

You will need to put 'L' plates  on the front and back of your car .

You can drive with someone who's passed their test, is over 21 and has been driving for three years or more.

Your 'L' plates also have to meet legal specification - look at the diagram above! 




Failed test? Not making progress?

I specialise in rescue training, around 60% of my business is to train learners who have rushed to, or been rushed to their test and are under prepared, therefore meaning the test was unsuccessful.

B7- driving for life, train in depth, pass with ease...

You were my saving grace! Patient and detailed in your approach. I can’t thank you enough after passing my test today in Northwich first time. Thank you for putting me in for the test when you knew I was ready. Calm, professional and highly skilled is my overall impression. This guy knows what he is doing!
— Will O-K, Chelford
I just wanted to thank Ben for his amazing service and support. We found Ben after my daughter had had 2 awful experiences with other instructors. Ben has an amazing technique of confidence building, correction without criticism, learning is not rushed or impatient . My daughter found that she learned more in one lesson than she had in 10 with her previous instructor. I can’t recommend him more highly!
— Jules, Bold
Passed today 1st time in Widnes, would like to thank Ben for all his help and getting me through. Great service, a really skilled coach and his approach meant the test was done with confidence. I learnt so much. Ben is calm, helpful, punctual and above all professional. No pressure, just highly skilled teaching that makes sure you feel confident driving beyond the test. Highly recommend him. Cheers Ben!
— William S, Widnes
From the day I rang the service was professional. Passed my test last week in Northwich! Ben for me trained me not to just pass my test, but to drive safely forever. I had many instructors in the past and none of them approach it in the manner Ben did, systematic and tailored to me. When you train with Ben you look at more than the test and because of this you are prepared to drive after you pass. I passed because our lessons were not JUST about the test. So many instructors are obsessed with the test only and rush learners, they then fail! Well I learnt with B7 and tbh I feel so glad I did as the test was not a test it was just me, using skills I already had! I will be recommending you for years to come!
— Harvey, Leftwich
Thank you, Ben is simply a brilliant trainer! Calm and supportive. After being disappointed by quite a few instructors who made me lose confidence, finally finding Ben was the best thing I did. Ben does not just prepare you for the test (like SO many instructors) his approach is to give you depth and tailor the lessons to you. The difference was massive from my previous experiences. Ben clearly is a step up from the instructors I have had, professional, knowledgeable and not obsessed with rushing you through.

He teaches advanced safe driving and looks beyond the test to make sure you are prepared for life driving. Advanced lessons in safety techniques for driving and so much information and knowledge from each lesson. I cannot thank you enough. I recommend you to every one who wants to learn to drive but choses to use a professional trainer. I will use some of the advanced skills you have given me each day in my car now that I passed my test with 1 driver fault! You were right, the test in the end was just about using skills I have gained from your teaching. FAULTLESS! “
— Daniel, Warrington
Passed first time, 2 driver faults!

Having taught both myself and my brother it was evident lessons were adapted to how individuals learnt and it wasn’t the same for everybody. During my lessons Ben emphasised the importance of learning to drive beyond the test so we practiced things not necessarily needed for the test but for driving in general, which has made me more confident to drive by myself.

Unlike my previous instructor, Ben makes sure lessons focus on specific areas for improvement and teaches you why you do something, like using mirrors, not just that it needs to be done. One major strength of driving with Ben is that he prepares you for driving post test. He asked where I’d be driving in the future and tailored this into my lessons, for example I had an early morning lesson to practice driving to college in rush hour traffic, so unlike other instructors, his focus isn’t just on passing the test.

I found that Ben is really approachable, which is a must for learning to drive as it means you feel comfortable with him during your lessons. This is due to his technique of coaching rather than dictating but also his sense of humour.

I highly recommend Ben as a driving instructor as I knew in my first lesson that he was a step up from my previous instructor. Thank you Ben!
