Welcome to Driving Excellence

Looking for Driving Schools Southampton? | Driving Excellence!

Driving Excellence would like to welcome you to our brand new website

We are a Southampton Driving School offering driving lessons, intensive driving courses and instructor franchise options. Michael Excell set up Driving Excellence in 2012 hoping to offer students and instructors an alternative choice to existing driving schools based in Southampton.


We understand that every learner has to be treated as an individual and over the last couple of years we have dealt with a whole range of learner drivers from the painfully nervous to the over confident. At Driving Excellence we apply our no-pressure approach to ensure that every driver feels confident and safe on the road. As professional driving instructors we have a responsibility to ensure our students can drive confidently and safely in the real world as well as pass their driving test.

For more information on our driving lessons please visit our dedicated page by clicking here.


Driving Excellence has developed a set of intensive driving courses which have become very popular. This style of learning is a right fit for some students. We are always happy to discuss our services and what would be the best fit for you so do not hesitate to get in touch.

As a professional driving school we are pleased to be able to offer Driving Instructors our Franchise options. We have developed two options which hopefully are flexible enough to cater for all instructors; whether you are a newly qualified instructor looking for an independent driving school through to an experienced driving instructor looking to book some extra students to fill their diary.

We hope you like the new website, you can also check Driving Excellence out on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN and Google Plus.

Local Southampton Web Designer & SEO Consultant 

I spoke to various local web designer and SEO consultants however, some offered to do the web design but without the SEO and vice versa. I knew what I wanted to achieve online but needed some help and I wanted to find someone who actually lived in Southampton. Having spoke to Sean Mullins he was able to guide me through the whole process and explain things like SEO in plain English. I have to totally agree with Sean when he said “What’s the point of a pretty website, if no one can find it”. I feel he’s given me an online platform and armed me with the right knowledge to help get my business as much visibility online as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Sean and his web design and SEO services, you can check out his site at:
