About Driver Skills North East Driving School
Driver Skills North East is a family run driving school based in Durham City. Husband and Wife team, Dave and Sarah Gill.
Dave Gill, a former RAF Policeman, has spent over 20 years working as a driving instructor and instructor trainer across the north of England, getting thousands of safe drivers onto the roads over the years and on to successful careers across the globe.
“After years of working Independently and along with local and national driving schools we realised there was a gap in the market for high quality driving instruction provided in a safe, controlled and encouraging environment with the ability to consolidate tuition into a shorter time frame resulting in a more cost effective way to learn, a better pass rate, more confident pupils and safer drivers. So Driver Skills Durham was formed, we quickly outgrew this with an increasing number of pupils coming from further afield to learn with us and so we expanded and updated our name to Driver Skills North East, as we are today.
