Helping people become safe, confident drivers since 2011

The Broughton School of Motoring is run by me - Steve Watson - and I've been helping people learn to drive in Scunthorpe, Kirton Lindsey, Brigg and the surrounding villages since 2011.

In that time hundreds of young (and not so young!) learner drivers have had driving lessons with me and I'm pleased to say most of them passed their theory and driving tests first time.

Here's some photos of them with their pass certificates - you might know someone who passed their test with me. You can read their reviews and testimonials on this website, on Facebook or on Google.

As you can see from the reviews, you will be taking your driving lessons with a patient, friendly instructor. I follow the driving instructors' code of practice and keep up to date with all the latest methods of teaching the skills you need to pass your driving test.

How I teach driving skills

There are many ways to teach people how to drive.

The traditional way (some might say the old fashioned way) would look something like this:

  • The instructor tells you exactly what to do and why you need to do it.
  • The instructor decides what you’re going to learn and how long you’re going to spend learning it.
  • The instructor teaches you using the methods they like to use.

If you're taught in this way, you may pass a driving test but afterwards you probably won't feel ready to drive by yourself. You'll have relied on your instructor so much that it's hard to think for yourself and if you encounter a situation you haven't been 'told' how to to deal with you might not know what to do.

You’ve changed my life!


My life hasn’t been the easiest and I really needed to pass my test. Steve is so encouraging. He pushes you to better yourself but always at your own pace. You’ll never feel uncomfortable or rushed or made to feel inadequate. I cannot fault him! Thank you Steve, you’ve changed my… Read more “You’ve changed my life!”

Being able to drive has changed my life. No more buses and trains just to get to work and now I can take my daughter out for the day in my car! And go shopping! I’m going to miss my driving… Read more “No more buses!”

I'll offer to teach you in a different way.

I'll encourage you to take control of your learning. I'll be there to provide structure to your lessons, keep you safe and to help you learn but I'll encourage you to think about what you’d like to learn and how long you would like to spend learning that skill before moving on to something else.

You’ll be asked to reflect upon your lesson, to set objectives and learn from situations, opportunities and mistakes. I'll help you learn using methods which work well for you visual aids, videos, demonstrations, or just practice.

By learning in this way you'll be fully prepared for driving on your own after you pass your test.

Of course, if you prefer the traditional way of being taught, then let me know. I can teach you that way as well. After all, you’re the customer and you're in charge!

Sounds good? Great!
