A very warm welcome is extended to you; thank you for visiting this site. A little about our team..

Kevin is married and has an elder daughter and son in their early 30s and a younger son in his early twenties and lives in Effingham and comes with 34 years of experience. Kevin is also a top qualified instructor’s instructor besides having taught hundreds of pupils in his illustrious career to date.

Charlie , based in Haslemere, has three children and is the  third member of the A Star Driving School team.

If you are at School, Sixth form college or Surrey Uni, we can collect you from there and drop you home or vice versa.

We operate primarily from Haslemere, Liphook, Godalming, Witley, Guildford, Hindhead, Headley, East Horsely, Effingham, Leatherhead, Weybridge, Chertsey and local areas.

Later starters already established in their careers and who work from an office, school or factory,  we can either begin or finish at your place of work to make things easier for you. We like to be flexible.

A Star Driving School is here to impart a life skill that will make a significant difference to your life whether at the moment you have to rely on public transport, don’t want to wait at bus stops in the wet and cold or rely on your family and friends for lifts but want that sense of freedom and independence to go where you want and when you want. YES!

Whatever the reason, it’s important you pick a really good instructor. Please look at our customer reviews and satisfy yourself first that we are right for you. (click here to read REVIEWS )
