About Us

Featherstone School of Motoring was established in 1990 by Richard & Dawn Woodward. Dawn is now a full time travel agent whilst Richard is senior instructor. Richard is pleased to be celebrating 32 years of driving instruction and loves his work. 

His mission is to teach you to the highest possible standard in the shortest possible time.

With the national average pass rate at only 43% we are proud to have achieved, at our highest, a pass rate of 93% and a consistent rate of above 70%. Our pupils averaged 4 minor faults per test. Over the last 2 years we have had 9 pupils obtain a perfect drive with no minor faults recorded. Please view our congratulations page for the recent passes for Featherstone Featherstone Driving Test Centre.

Richard is one of the highest qualified instructors in the country. Having over 30 years experience and has been check tested to be grade 6 (top grade) by the Driving Standards Agency. Only 6% of 45,000 instructors hold this grade. On his DSA Check tests he scored straight 6's putting him in the top 2% of ADI's in the country. 

Richard uses Featherstone Driving Test Centre. The examiners there are very friendly & professional and will always put you at ease. 

Featherstone Driver Training is based in Featherstone, Staffordshire. From here we cover local areas such as Featherstone, Shareshill, Cheslyn Hay, Saredon, Hilton, Wescroft, Essington, Bushbury, Low Hill, Fallings Park, Great Wyrley, Calf Heath, Churchbridge and Bridgtown.

Since 2009 Dawn had been teaching in an automatic car offering automatic driving lessons in and around the Cannock area. In 2017 Dawn gradually reduced her training and has now stopped instruction to pursue her travel agent career. However, Richard is providing automatic driving lessons around the Featherstone area.

For your peace of mind Richard can confirm that he is CRB checked, and first aid trained. 

Dawn is an approved trainer for Regional Driver Assessment Centre (RDAC) and does still provide training for people who require assessments for RDAC, refresher lessons and  DVSA Appraisals.

 Richard holds a Certificate in Human Performance to help understand your capabilities as a driver and has attended courses in Crash Investigation. 

Both Richard and Dawn Woodward are full motorcycle licence holders, and have been trained at Staffordshire Police Skid Pan in skid avoidance and correction. They have done courses in Rally Driving, 4x4 off road driving, stunt driving and drift racing. Richard is a fully trained helicopter pilot. They even travelled to Thailand to achieve an Elephant Driving licence!
