Hello, I'm Gary, the owner and only instructor of Gary Bennett Driving School. I have been a driving instructor since July 2007. My business was first called Miles Ahead Driving School. The reason for the name change is to make it a more personal business experience for you.
I am local born in Stoke-On-Trent and know the town and the surrounding areas well.
I passed my driving test in 1988. A lot has changed in the driving test since i passed. It's also a lot harder. The other thing that is harder now is the volume of traffic on our roads today. I have over 28 years experience on all types of roads, and in all types of weather, that I can pass onto you to help make you a safe driver for life.
