MidKent College launches new driving school


Students and staff to benefit from lessons costing just £17 per hour.

Kent, England (PRWEB UK) 24 October 2012

An exciting new driving school offering lessons at just £17 per hour is going down a storm with staff and students at MidKent College.

Officially launched on Wednesday, 17 October, the new venture aims to help learner motorists struggling to overcome rising fuel and insurance costs to get behind the wheel.

Two cars emblazoned with the MidKent College Driving School logo – a Ford Focus and Hyundai i10 – were parked outside the Medway Campus, Gillingham, for the launch event while instructors handed out fliers to staff and students.

Programme administrator Matt Brown said: “It's very expensive to run a vehicle these days so it's no surprise our super-value lessons are attracting such a great deal of interest.

“We handed out hundreds of fliers and have received lots of expressions of interest already, so we're confident this new venture will be a great success.

“We want people to continue to enjoy coming to college, which is why it is such a high priority to find new ways to improve the student experience.”

Customers not connected to the College can also sign up to lessons through MidKent College Driving School, albeit at the slightly higher price of £21 per hour.

The new business has been set up in partnership with Medway-based TopClass, whose experienced instructors will carry out the training.

TopClass manager Tim Hunt said: “We're delighted to be working with MidKent College on this exciting new venture.

“It's fantastic that the students will benefit in this way and be taught the correct, safest way to drive on our roads.”
