About Us

Featherstone School of Motoring was established in 1990 by Richard & Dawn Woodward. We are pleased to be celebrating 30 years of driving instruction.

Our 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 this year have 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.

Our Instructors Dawn & Richard Woodward are some of the highest qualified instructors in the country. They each have 30 years experience and have been check tested to be grade 6 (top grade) by the Driving Standards Agency. Only 6% of 45,000 instructors hold this grade. On their DSA Check tests they both scored straight 6's putting both of them in the top 2% in the country. 

We Featherstone Driving Test Centres. The examiners here are very friendly, professional and will always put you at ease.
