Adrian Fedyk Owner Optimus School of Motoring

Learning to drive is a rite of passage, a symbol of independence and freedom. It's a chance to explore new places and meet new people.


It's also a responsibility, and it's important to be safe and aware of the rules of the road.


But most of all, learning to drive is a fun and exciting experience that will stay with you for a lifetime.

At Optimus, my aim is that we will form a partnership that will ensure you get the most from your driving lessons around Basingstoke - enjoyable learning and professional tuition with an Approved Driving Instructor with over 15 years experience.
Optimus Driving School uses tried and tested teaching and coaching techniques, the latest study aids, and a real determination and commitment to achieve your goal of independent driving.
So you will find that you will spend the vast majority of your driving lessons around Basingstoke learning how to drive and on the road, rather than spending time on the side of the road discussing the theory of driving. 

Driving is a skill that takes time and practice to master. But once you do, it's an incredibly liberating experience. You can go wherever you want, whenever you want.  
So if you're thinking about learning to drive, don't be afraid to take the plunge. It's an adventure you won't regret.
And, with Great Discounts for Block Bookings over 4 hours and a Pass Rate that is Double the National Average, you can't go wrong with Optimus.
For the Best Value Driving Lessons in the Basingstoke area, including Hook, Bramley, Ramsdell and Rotherwick, please email, call or text me on 07749 218000 today, and join over 400 pupils that have already Passed With Optimus!

Please note that I am unable to offer Automatic Driving Lessons.

Before contacting a driving school to start learning to drive, you need to be at least 17 years old, which is the minimum age that you can legally drive a car on public roads in the UK.
There's been some speculation about raising the minimum age to 18, but this is under review by the Government and no decision has yet been made.


The A to Z of Driving is a companion to your driving lessons. It is made up of 26 articles which each cover an essential area of driving in an easily digestible format. 
I have compiled the weekly Blog from my website into a PDF document that you are able to read in its complete form on the A to Z of Driving Page, where you can also download as a PDF.

Also, titles like The Highway Code, The Official DSA Guide to Driving - The Essential Skills and The Practical Test for Car Drivers, are a great place to start.
Starting to practise your driving theory and hazard perception on a PC or DVD could boost your skills and improve your chances of passing both the Theory and Practical Tests.

If you are well prepared from your driving lessons and practice, and you can apply your theory knowledge, then the Practical Test is really straightforward.
It's designed to see whether you can drive safely on the roads and can demonstrate your knowledge of The Highway Code.
The test lasts about 40 minutes and is conducted by a DVSA Examiner.
They'll tell you where to go and ask you to carry out a range of exercises.
You'll be asked to drive along a test route that has been designed to test your skills to the full.
And where possible, it will incorporate everyday road and traffic conditions, including hills, traffic lights and junctions.

And with Optimus, you have every chance of passing, First Time!

At Optimus Driving School, my goal is to provide you with the highest standard of driving lessons, so that you start your motoring independence as a competent and confident driver.
