Shaun Grist


After moving to Glastonbury, a few of years ago, I decided that with a new town a new career would be a great opportunity, after spending 20 plus years travelling the country as an IT consultant doing many thousands of miles I have seen lots of good driving and some not so good driving, this lead me to think about a long-held passion to help new drivers become safe and confident users of the road.

Shaun Grist Driving as a school, we pride ourselves on our fantastic pass rate and have a massive sense of personal pride in all the students coming through learning this valuable life skill, starting in Glastonbury and Street we teach the basics, moving on to Yeovil & Taunton where further training and the eventual test is held.

We use the Citroen C3 and create a patient, understanding approach to training making for a comfortable relaxed environment, ensuring all of our students develop at their own rate, with a few challenges along the way to make sure things keep moving forward as needed.

We offer 2 hour lessons and discounts for 10 Hr block bookings, when you are ready we will book your practical driving test for you, so we can ensure the car is available for you and your instructor is available as well, if you haven’t already taken your theory test and would like to book it please follow the link button below.
