The world's first speeding ticket was given to someone driving at 8mph!!
Back in 1896, the speed limit in Britain was a meagre 2mph and cars had to have a chap walking in front with a red flag to warn pedestrians of their approach.
The Gatso was the first speed camera used in the UK when it was installed on the M40 in 1991.
If anyone is looking for a driving instructor please look no further than Chris. Would highly recommend him. He has the patience of a saint. He is very thorough throughout the lessons, explains everything in detail and makes you believe in yourself and your abilities. As a late comer to driving and being a nervous and anxious driver Chris has managed to put me at ease and enjoy my driving lessons. I never thought I could pass my test as my confidence in driving was low but very pleased to say I passed first time with Support, guidance and help from Chris.

I passed with Chris first time after 5 months of driving. At the beginning I was pretty nervous but Chris was very friendly, patient & encouraging & made me feel relaxed when driving. Emails after each lesson, along with a log book, helped my progression & built up my confidence. Chris also took me out of my comfort zone & if there were things I needed to focus on, we could work on them. An amazing instructor & brilliant guy. Highly recommended 100%
Just want to say a massive thank you to Chris for his support and mostly for keeping me motivated and focused on passing my test throughout the pandemic. I honestly never thought I would be a driver but thanks to ‘Chris’ driving standards I was able to make this happen. I couldn’t recommend him enough!
