About Numero uno

Driving Lessons

Provisional licence holder training for Manual and Automatic cars.

Qualified Driver Training

Refreshers, International Licence Conversions or just wanting to improve your road sense and safety.

Pass Plus

A great course which increases your driving skills and lowers your insurance.

The Numero Uno Driving School thrives on being the best. That is why we have a very high pass rate

We are the original Fiat 500 instructors. Using these cars before all of our competition including BSM. Unlike our competitors though, our cars are top of the range convertible Abarth and Fiat 500's with reverse sensors and air conditioning.

Our automatic car is a Toyota C-HR. On top of this we also use dash cams in all our cars which allow you to review any situations that may arise. We teach all elements of driving from provisional licence holders, qualified driver training, Pass Plus, disability (inc. SEN and deaf clients), fleet courses as well as instructor training and even advanced driver training.

Numero Uno operates in the North London area which includes Enfield and Barnet. Welcome to the new way of learning. We look forward to driving with you soon.

Manual Lessons

Provisional licence holder training

I have been as instructor since 2006 and have had a very high pass rate while producing safe drivers.


 You will be using the Abarth or Fiat 500 convertibles with reverse sensors, air conditioning and front and rear dash cameras. 


I averaged 27.5 hours from never driven before to passing in 2017 with my quickest being 12.5 hours! The national average is 45 hours of professional instruction with 22 hours with a family member. 


I have achieved this by adapting the techniques used to the clients needs (Client Centred Learning) as well as PowerPoint productions that are sent to you to revise so that you can jump straight in without needing to waste time talking!

At Numero Uno you can rest assured that you will always receive only the highest quality of instruction.

  • We will NEVER have another student in the car,
  • We will NEVER answer the phone in your lessons,
  • We will NEVER cut your lesson short.
  • We DO NOT charge additional fees for test day.
  • Our students on average spend £825 (30 hour block) £30x27.5=£825 Compared to the national average of £26 per hour x 45 hours = £1170 plus the additional 22 hours with a family member or friend.

    In short we WILL save you money while making you a safe and capable driver. Guaranteed

    Automatic Lessons

    Provisional licence holder training

    The car you will be learning in is the 2019 Toyota C-HR hybrid. The advantage of training in this vehicle is that it has lots of features which takes away the stresses of learning at the beginning but, as you progress we will turn these off which gives you confidence. 

    It has Air conditioning, reverse camera, front and rear dash cameras as well as auto lights & wipers. It is also very kind to our environment. 

    So if you want to learn a life skill and pass your test, book a lesson here and let us show you how good you can be.

    Pass Plus

    A great course which increases your driving skills and lowers your insurance.

    The Pass Plus course is a great course to help you advance your driving skills as well as getting you cheaper insurance when you get your own car.

    
 As a Numero Uno customer (starlet), we would have covered all the subjects in your driving lessons but we will further your skills with techniques used to train advanced drivers. 


    If you were not a Numero Uno customer but want to do your Pass Plus course, do not worry. We WILL still turn you in to the driver that we turn our starlets in to. 


    You will be taught everything that the Pass Plus course teaches as well as extra advise and tips which are used in advanced driving courses.

    So what are you waiting for!

    Send us a message and we'll get you booked in.

  • Dyslexia
  • Irien Syndrome
  • MLD

  • *Prices for SEN Lessons are the same price as Manual/Automatic lessons.

    Physical Disability

    Provisional licence holder training

    We are able to teach clients with various physical disabilities in our adapted Toyota C-HR. Our car is by far the most user friendly and adaptable driving school vehicle in London! It is easy to get in and out due to the height and door length, if required we have a Car Cane which makes entering and exiting easier.

    We will put your wheel chair in the boot if needed too.

    It has been fitted with

  • Jeff Gosling Hand controls with indicator switch
  • Jeff Gosling Left foot Accelerator
  • Jeff Gosling Steering Wheel ball
  • Lodgesons Lollypop 13 Switch
  • Panoramic Mirrors
  • Car Cane for making getting in and out easier.
  • You may be entitled to funding from Motability for which you must apply directly through them.

    Familiarisation Tuition

    If you getting in an adapted vehicle for the first time it is very important it is with an instructor that can take control the vehicle and talk you through the differences. Motability advises that you take 6 hours to get used to hand controls and 10 hours for the Left Foot Accelerator. You may be entitled to funding from Motability, to find out call 0300 456 4566 and speak to the operations team making sure you take note of the persons name and have your CRN number.

    Mike is patient, fun and full of stories.

    His teaching method is unique and allows you to not only learn to drive, but to fully understand the car and the road around you.

    A very positive and memorable experience.

    Jordan Ezra

    Mike is the man!! He is an amazing teacher and I could not recommend him and his service highly enough. Over the course of the 6 months he taught me we formed a great relationship, he is kind, patient, alert, funny, knowledgeable and passionate about driving, which is not a bad combination for a driving instructor!

    He is flexible to suit your needs and availability and has many great stories to listen to as you get to grips with being behind the wheel.

    Don’t even look to go anywhere else, Mike is the best there is, there is a reason why they call him Numero Uno!

    Aidan Hibbett

    Mike's patience can't be understated and his experience, knowledge of driving and the driver's test shows. I couldn't have asked for any more of him as a teacher and always felt safe when driving with him. He showed confidence in me as a new driver from the very first lesson until the last and made sure I was ready when I took my test. Not to mention his flexibility and passion for driving. Also Mike himself is great to chat with while driving, and your lessons will definitely not be boring as he has a lot of great stories to tell, which on their own are worth the lesson fee! 10/10 would recommend.

    Ollie Killip

    The best driving instructor out there! Michael is a lovely guy and a right laugh whilst also being an excellent teacher. He is patient and works very hard to give you the very best service he can. I passed first time and couldn't have done it without his support!

    Gabriela Kemble-Diaz

    Mike is a great driving instructor, helping you progress through each lesson. He is patient and works with you build your confidence and diagnose any problems you may have. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone.

    Rosie Bussandri

    Fantastic teacher, removed all the stress from learning to drive! Mike is a top guy - couldn't recommend more.

    Fleet Courses

    Want to make your fleet safer and more efficient? We can help.

    As an Fleet qualified instructor I can help you and your staff become more efficient and profitable!

    
 We do this by: 


  • Coaching your staff to drive Safer (reducing increased insurance premiums and by not having to pay out for excess)
  • Showing the importance of Eco Driving (reducing fuel expenses, reduces engine wear)
  • Making your drivers think about Mechanical Sympathy (Reducing break downs and keeps your vehicles on the road and working)
  • Changing their mind set when it comes to Road Attitude (Less Stress, Lowers the chance of the general public relating your brand as a bad brand)
  • I am able to offer 1 to 1 as well as group or class seminars. By doing a seminar it lowers your costs but without losing out in any way. As long as you have a projector we already have the PowerPoint or Keynote to get started. 


    Don't forget to speak to your insurance as regular training can vastly reduce your premium.

    So what are you waiting for!
