About Chequered Flag

Hi! My name is Alison Tetlow and I've been a fully qualified driving instructor for over 20 years. I've always had an interest in driving, ever since I sat the 'L' Test myself. I worked in the motor trade for several years but have always had a passion for teaching, so combining the two made becoming a driving instructor the perfect job for me! Since then, I've built up Chequered Flag School Of Motoring and am proud of my excellent reputation for my fun, friendly approach to lessons and my excellent pass rate.

I can give lessons at almost any time, including evenings, weekends and bank holidays. These are the kind of lessons I can give;

  • Complete Beginner
  • Pass Plus
  • Intensive Courses
  • Refresher Lessons
  • Motorway Lessons
  • Advanced Driver Lessons

My aim is to coach you into becoming a safe and confident driver. Lessons are carefully and individually planned, interactive and fun. Learners come to me with different varying degrees of experience, so whatever your needs, I'll tailor a course individually for you. I teach both young and more mature pupils. I understand you might be apprehensive about starting to learn to drive, but my lessons will help build your confidence to succeed so you can enjoy one of life's ultimate freedoms.


Most importantly I am a grade A driving instructor. This means I have demonstrated the highest level of driving instruction on my last standards exam. For myself, this is a fantastic achievement. For you, it means I can transfer my expertise and knowledge making the learning process relatively quick, easy to understand and enjoyable for yourself.

I have also undertaken the ROSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) advanced driving test in which I received the GOLD standard. This is the highest driving award you can achieve as a civilian. Now I can train you to this advanced level. I am educated to degree level in English Language, Literature and Creative writing and have successfully completed an Adult Training qualification at Lancaster.
Please contact me for more information.
