Welcome to Chris Chambers School of Motoring!
The ability to drive is fast becoming an essential life skill. In order to become the best driver you can possibly be, and to greatly increase the chances of achieving the much desired first-time pass, it is vital for you to choose an experienced & established driver trainer.
You need a driving school you can trust: And I believe that Chris Chambers School of Motoring is the driving school for you!
So, about me? Here goes...
With a wealth of experience gained, and success achieved, over many years’ in the driver education and training industry, I forever strive to remain at the forefront of the driver education and training industry. Happily my endeavours throughout my career were recognised in 2016, when I was both proud and jumbled in equal measure to be named 'Best Independent Driving Instructor - North East' in the '2016 AI Business Excellence' awards.
More recently, I was again equally proud and humbled to be recognised as 'Most Trusted Driving School - Sunderland' in the '2017 AI Business Excellence' awards.
Personally, I have held a full, clean UK driving licence for over 24 years’, and during my career as a driver training professional, I have established a highly positive reputation in the area for providing high-quality driver education and training, and doing so in a pleasant, light-hearted & relaxed environment: these factors, along with my business success, have happily aided me in becoming a popular choice for driver training within the area.
In addition to the above, I am proud to have previously been elected for the role as Secretary of the local driving instructors association, S.A.D.I. (Sunderland Assosiation of Driving Instructors), as well as being a fully qualified Level 3 Assessor of Vocational Achievement [QCF AVA : Qualifications and Credit Framework - Assessing Vocational Achievement].
You can feel safe in the knowledge that you are not only being taught an important life-skill by a fully qualified, vastly experienced, and dedicated driver training professional, but also that your chosen training provider is actively involved with the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) of his own knowledge and skills. Having been involved in the driver education and training industry since 2005, with Chris Chambers School of Motoring being established in 2006, my positive reputation has gone from strength to strength, during which time has resulted in successfully teaching, coaching, and mentoring customers of all ages and abilities in a variety of driving disciplines, as well as successfully aiding those with issues such a lack of confidences.
Since each individual is unique, and therefore has their own particular set of needs, the range of training methods I employ can vary greatly from individual to individual, however, irrespective of the types of training methods I employ, each lesson is carefully structured and expertly delivered, with clear targets set out to achieve. Whilst there is always going to be an inherent need to tell, or ‘instruct’ an individual what to do and how to do something, my main aim is to structure the lesson to encourage customer-centred learning: effectively supporting the individual to take responsibility for their own learning. This approach actively encourages and promotes a self-reliance and appreciation of the legal and moral responsibilities involved as a driver.
In order to qualify as an approved DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) driving instructor, I was required to undertake a highly demanding three stage testing process which involved the testing of my knowledge, driving ability, and lastly my ability to teach. Since qualification, I now undergo compulsory standards checks which are carried out by senior DVSA officials. The purpose of these audits is to allow our governing body to ensure that I have maintained the required high instructional standards, which on confirmation of this allows me to maintain my government approved status.
In addition to compulsory quality standards checks, I am also subject to regular enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) checks.
While providing you with my knowledge and guidance during practical in-car lesson time, I am also happy to offer advice, guidance, and support between lessons and, for that matter, throughout your driving career. For parents, I am happy to liaise directly with you regarding your son or daughters’ progress throughout their training should you so wish.
When it comes to cost, my services are far from the cheapest option available to you in the area, however, it is worth noting that I am not attempting to be the cheapest driving school in the area, nor am I attempting to compete in price: I compete on the strength of my reputation and customers’ success. I strongly believe in the old saying, “You get what you pay for”.
In closing, I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to visit the official website of Chris Chambers School of Motoring. I hope your visit has been a pleasant one, and that you found it both informative and encouraging. You can find additional content and comment at my official business page on Facebook.

Positivity. Growth. Progression. Achievement: Be Brilliant.
