Welcome to Spot On Driving
Spot On Driving is a family run business, that has been providing quality driving tuition in North Dorset for 5 years.
We are really very proud of the excellent Customer Reviews we’ve received from all of our past pupils.
At Spot On, we guarantee that all lessons are carefully planned between the instructor and the learner; therefore, the learner driver clearly understands what they aim to achieve in every lesson.
At the end of each lesson instructors help learners to fill out a Reflective Log. This enables the learner to assess whether they feel that the lesson aims have been achieved, and how they would like to progress in the following lesson. This way the learner driver has control of their own learning.
