© 2006 - 2017 Graham May School of Motoring


Graham May is a fully qualified Grade ‘A’ Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor (DVSA ADI), and has been teaching people of all ages and backgrounds to drive since 2006. He has achieved an enviable reputation based on his patience, reliability and consistently high pass rate.

Graham May’s pass rate for all tests taken during 2015 to 2017 is 80%, compared with the Lanark Test Centre average of 55%. His first time pass rate for the period is 78%. Overall, this means of the 78 tests taken by Graham May School of Motoring pupils during this period, 62 were passes (no tricks of statistics, no pupils excluded from figures).  The first time pass rate figure comes from the fact that of 59 different pupils presented for tests in 2015, 2016 and 2017, 46 of them passed first time (the vast majority of the rest passed at their second attempt). Graham May  can make you one guarantee - he will give you the tools to be a safe driver in as short a time as is safely possible, and therefore reach the standard required by the DVSA test as soon as you can.

Graham is subject to rigorous continual DVSA assessment on an ongoing basis (commonly known as a check test). At his last assessment, in April 2016, Graham was awarded a Grade A for his instructional ability, the highest grade possible. This means an exceptionally experienced and qualified DVSA Senior Examiner has determined that Graham’s overall instructional ability is to a very high standard with no significant instructional weaknesses. Only around 1 in 4 of the 42,000 driving instructors in the UK currently hold this extremely sought after grade! The majority of driving instructors are assessed only to be of Grade B level (sufficiently competent, but with weaknesses).

Graham is fully committed to his own continuing professional development, recently completing the Professional Qualification in Coaching for Driver Education (BTEC Level 4). Graham’s aim in completing this year long university level course is to ensure all current and future pupils continue to receive the highest quality tuition available in line with the most up to date academic thinking on learning to drive. Graham is also the Secretary of  the Lanark District Driving Instructors Association (www.lddia.co.uk), and is an active member of the Drivers Instructors Association (DIA). Involvement with these bodies enables him to keep up to date with all new developments and techniques in both local and national driving instructing. Graham has been fully vetted by Disclosure Scotland (what does this mean?).

All Graham’s lessons begin and end wherever is convenient for you, and are available on an hourly, 90 minute, two hourly or more intensive basis if desired. Daytime, weekend and evening slots are available. All driving lessons are conducted in an extremely friendly and relaxed manner, and closely follow a carefully crafted course structure based on the Driving Standard Agency approved driving syllabus for learner drivers. Full support is given and free resources are available here in respect of the Theory and Hazard Perception Test, and with Graham’s expert guidance and support, you will develop quickly into a confident, safe, and considerate driver, capable of not only passing the Practical Driving Test but coping with the demands of day to day driving and traffic conditions. Motorway, refresher lessons and the Pass Plus course are available (and highly recommended) to advance your driving skills further after passing the driving test.

Graham lives at the very foot of Tinto Hill. He is husband to the beautiful, amazing Michelle, and father to the equally amazing Alexander (11), Cameron (7) and Fraser (3).

He regularly makes the trip down the M74 to cheer on Motherwell FC, the best team this side of La Liga. Superb discounts are available for those willing to convert their allegiance to MFC.
