Who are Pass 1st?

We're a Kent based school of motoring formed by two highly experienced Driving Instructors, Kieron Cook and Tom Scotland. Driving instructors covering, Ashford, Dover, Deal, Folkestone, Hawkinge, Hythe, New Romney, and surrounding areas.

We offer our students the opportunity to pass their driving tests quickly in a relaxed and safe learning environment, using tried and tested teaching techniques.

Well known for our successful pass rates, particularly with young drivers, we strongly believe that getting driving experience at an early age is paramount to becoming a safer driver so we have introduced our very popular Young Drivers Club. (Driving lessons for 11-17 year olds).
