Hythe Driving School is a part of The Big Red L Company, founded in Kent in 1992.

We are committed to helping you become a safe driver for life. So we are not only concerned with getting through your test (as important as that is!) but we also like our pupils and their cars to stay in one piece afterwards!

We offer both regular driving lessons and intensive courses; so if time is of the essence we can book a lesson to assess how many hours you’ll need to pass an intensive course.

Though we are based in Folkestone, Hythe is our second home and we love teaching pupils from this location. Tony, our director, is also a trustee of Seapoint Canoe Centre, based on The Royal Military Canal and paddling all the way to the dam in west Hythe.

The Big Red L is a high quality driving school franchise that always only uses the best independent instructors.

The office is manned by the founder, Tony and his team of trusty sidekicks – Cath (a bookkeeper who puts Tony in his place) and Samuel (our blogger and web designer – who has just left to study Creative Writing at University).
