About Us



My name is Martin Caswell and I have been a Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor for over 40 years (I became a Driving Instructor at the age of 23). I have taught in London, Belfast, Plymouth, Cornwall and Berkshire. I trained with one of the UK’s largest Driving Schools and for the following 8 years gained experience teaching with 6 other independent Driving Schools.

In 1981, whilst teaching in London I launched my own Driving School and within 2 years turned it into a multi-car Driving School where I employed other fully qualified Driving Instructors covering the whole of the London area.

Besides teaching learner drivers I have experience in training people to become fully qualified Driving Instructors, taught pre-17’s off-road on specially constructed driving areas. I also have experience in Advanced Driving tuition, Company Driver assessment, Skid Control to motor racing students (I used to race saloon cars at Brands Hatch), Karting to race standard and in his last year, my son came 4th in the British Indoor Karting Championship, I.A.M. (Institute of Advanced Motorists) groups, Metropolitan Police and Ambulance drivers, off-road 4×4 in the Mercedes M Class, Toyota Landcruisers and RAV4’s.

In 2005 I set up my own Driving School Directory website www.ineeddrivinglessons.co.uk for people can find a local Driving Schools wherever you live, anywhere in the UK. Quite recently I set up a new website for Driving School owners www.drivingschoolsuccess.com

I am also the author of the Driving School manual ‘Start And Run Your Own Successful Driving School’ which was first published in 1991. Both the book and the website are aimed at helping Driving Schools to provide a great service to their customers and to help them to run and promote their Driving Schools efficiently and well.

The concept for the hypnotherapy CD’s set to help nervous learner drivers to relax was the result of my many years as a fully qualified driving instructor specialising in nervous pupils. My business slogan being ‘Nervous Pupils A Speciality
