Welcome to Cook Driver Training, Edinburgh

Hi, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Paul Cook and I’m a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor, holding the highest grade awarded to Instructors in the UK (Grade A).

I hope you find this website useful and that you decide to use Cook Driver Training.

Why choose an “Independent Driving Instructor” like me?

“Independent” means I don’t work within a franchised driving school (the big brands you’ve heard of). As a one man operation I don’t have an advertising budget and so I really have to EARN my reputation and referral business.

Another reason to choose an Independent Driving Instructor is that you can be assured you won’t be receiving your training from a “licensed trainee”. Trainee instructors have not yet passed the final DVSA exam – the test of instructional ability.

In conclusion, do your own research. Find out about the grading system, franchise costs, Trainee Instructors, and also about how long it takes to pass. If you then decide to use me, you know you can be assured of the highest quality of training, carried out as efficiently as possible.
