SMARTA Driver Training was established due to demand from pupils looking for genuine independent driving instructors. Whilst the SMARTA name is new, the founder of Smarta Driver Training Fraser Mathers was first qualified as a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) in 1999 with the one clear intention of offering new learner drivers the correct choice of fully independent driving instructors, and has established this new driving school organisation to provide an easy route to finding truly Independent Driving Instructors in your local area who will provide either intensive driving courses or regular pre planned driving lessons.
Learning to drive with Smarta Driver Training is all about you the pupil and as we are not linked to any mass market national driving organisations, you will find we are not driven by sales teams or meeting quotas, and only use fully Independent Self Employed DVSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs), so you can rest assured that you will be looked after by the individual owner who is a fully committed to your driving lessons.
Unlike most of the corporate or larger driving schools you won’t find trainee instructors being used as we only use fully licenced DVSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADI). When choosing your instructor it is important that you only use a Fully Qualified Green Licence holder, unlike most of the national schools that use a large number of trainees who only have orange trainee licences to provide tuition. Ask yourself, would you step on a Jumbo Jet to go on holiday if you new it was a non-qualified pilot that was flying the plane!
All our independent instructors have agreed to both the DVSA and our code of conduct and are regularly checked to see that they provide the level and standard of tuition that you expected. (The DVSA also carry out their own check tests on all our instructors). Instructors are also CRB checked (Criminal Records Bureau).
Choosing a driving instructor can be difficult when there are so many driving schools. Smarta is different as we are driven by Customer Service plus we like to offer a pleasant, humorous and a relaxed atmosphere whilst you are learning to drive. By providing a high quality service, this has helped us become very popular within the training areas. We use the latest and up to date lesson plans and make the best use of technology both in and out of the training vehicles.
In the event that I have a full diary, through my network of Instructors we can offer lessons to fit around your schedule. All the Instructors are pleasant, patient and offer first class tuition whether you are a novice driver, a nervous pupil, require refresher training or motorway training.
We have recently made the decision to use the new Citroën DS3 DSPORT for tuition which offers outstanding levels of safety and comfort for both the Trainee and the Instructor and is equipped to the highest standards:
All vehicles are:
Ø Fully Air Conditioning

Whilst the vehicle is fitted with some automatic controls (lighting, wipers Air-con, reversing aids), you will also be taught how to use these manually as not all cars are fitted with such controls and you will need to be able to use them manually on test.
