Happy 10th Birthday To Us!

It's a big celebration for us today (15th November 2014) - it's exactly ten years since our driving school, Clearway Driver Training opened for business!

It seems like only yesterday that we started, yet a whole decade has passed in which we've expanded both our team of driving instructors and the geographical area we cover!

Back in 2004, Clearway Driver Training consisted of our company manager and sole driving instructor Paul and our office manager Louise who handled all the phone calls, customer enquiries and office administration. We offered driving lessons in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead and most of our business came via advertising in the Yellow Pages and local business telephone directories.

Now, a decade later, Paul and Louise have been joined by a small, hand picked team of driving instructors and the areas we cover have expanded to include Bracknell, Wokingham, Crowthorne, Twyford, West Drayton, Gerrards Cross, Egham and all the surrounding villages. 

Over the years, we've changed our "look" more than once.

We started off with a "black with yellow stripes" theme on our cars, website and company stationery. This changed to a stylish black and silver theme for a while but now, we're bang up to date with a modern two tone blue and white style! 

We've moved with the times too - no longer do we use old style telephone directories to get our name out there - we have a comprehensive website which is a great information resource for potential customers as it takes learner drivers step by step through the process of getting a full driving licence, as well as providing essential information about us and the services we provide.

We've helped hundreds of local people pass their driving tests and we're delighted that the main source of our new customers are now via recommendations! It's a great feeling when someone emails or rings us up and tells us that they'd like to take driving lessons with us because they know someone who has already learnt to drive with one of our instructors and they've recommended us :) Good customer service has always been our priority and it's nice to know that people think we've achieved just that!

We've enjoyed every minute of the last ten years helping people to change their lives by learning to drive or becoming a better driver. As we celebrate ten successful years we'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all our customers past and present  - it's been a pleasure to have helped you!

Happy 10th Birthday Clearway Driver Training - here's to the future!
