Roads throughout Chester and Ellesmere Port are set to suffer closures for resurfacing. Work is already taking place in preparation for the surface treatment soon to be applied across the area. Roads in and around Chester are scheduled to be resurfaced over the coming months in readiness for when warmer temperatures arrive in the UK. Spring will see the Highways Department for Cheshire West and Chester Council treating many roads surfaces with micro asphalt. The preparations in the locale started this month and have included clearing dirt and debris at road edges, and pruning back any trees currently overhanging the carriageway. After this initial stage, the main bulk of the road maintenance resurfacing treatment will happen on specific dates throughout the borough, predominantly during March and April. Parts affected will include Chester, areas of Ellesmere Port and their surrounds. The resurfacing process will involve a thin layer being spread over existing road surfaces in order to seal them and restore traction and grip. The initiative is designed to lengthen the lifespan of the carriageways and can typically be driven over, under an hour after being put in place. The council has released a selection of dates when specific roads will be treated around the borough to keep the public informed and avoid any inconvenience wherever possible. Those conducting driving lessons in Chester should be mindful of potential closures and alter their routes accordingly to avoid disruption for themselves and their students.
5 years I began my first lessons with Jackie Bradley, and due to my own impatience with my theory I lost all... confidence. Last year in November finally I motivated myself to pass my theory and I did just that. I didn’t even have to hesitate on who I wanted to teach me, I took up my lessons with Jackie and I was so reassure mentally and it was like I never left, Jackie really has taught me the best, not only that she really drills it into me, and is full of confidence. Jackie for me is a perfect instructor and someone who is able to teach at all levels. I have my test approaching and not only is this for my benefit but I really hope I get a first time pass for myself and Jackie because it is the least she deserves with all her amazing lessons!read more
Recommend Insight 2 Drive for ADI part 3 Test. Just want to say a massive thank you to Kathy Higgins (Insight 2 Drive)... for helping me pass my part 3 on first attempt and qualify as a driving instructor. I went to Kathy after she was recommended to me after starting to lose my confidence. On my first training session I did about 3 left turns and she pulled me over, said Jen I know your problem. We discussed it and then carried on the session with my new technique in place. It made all the difference. Every training session I had with Kathy was a light bulb moment. I left every session feeling I got something out of it. she taught me loads of golden nuggets which I use with my pupils every day. Her knowledge and understanding is second to none. On my first observed lesson she watched of me teaching a pupil she did a mind map of the lesson for me to reflect on, it was mind blowing the way she did it, and helped me to see what went well and what I could improve on. Every training session she observed my lessons she marked me as a mock test to see how I'd done. Her feedback was excellent, always highlighting my strengths but also showing me how I could improve my lessons. we would discuss before the pupil got it if I wanted her to butt in during a lesson or just sit back and observe and take notes. I always wanted Kathy to butt in if need be because I didnt want to miss that next golden nugget. Kathy also allowed me to sit in and observe her fully qualified ADIs Leanne and Jackie, I would also like to say thanks to them for allowing me that opportunity and there support. Insight 2 Drive is an amazing training academy which I rate extremely highly. You wont be disappointed talking things through with Kathy, she an amazing lady and I'm so grateful that she was recommended to me.read more

I completed my part 2 and 3 training with Kathy. At the time I was actually with another driving school. I found Kathy... very supportive and approachable, and thanks to her help and guidance I passed my part 2 first time. During my part 3 training I realised that I wanted to join Insight 2 Drive. I liked the idea of working with a team of other instructors, and the level of continued training and support that Kathy and the academy team could offer. Kathy, Leanne and Jackie were all really helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed my training sessions with them, as I learned something new each time. They were always there when I needed help, and I never felt alone. Thanks to the help and support I received from Kathy, Leanne and Jackie, I achieved my goal and passed my part 3 and I can’t thank each of them enough. The training doesn’t stop there though, Kathy ensures that regular CPD course are available for all of the team, in order to help us develop and grow. For anyone looking to change career and train to become a driving instructor, I would highly recommend doing it with Kathy and the academy team at Insight 2 Drive. They will ensure they steer you towards success!read more
I chose Insight2Drive to support me through my ADI Training as I really appreciated the personal approach. I didn’t... feel like a number, but a person. They worked with me to ensure that I was a great instructor and as a by product of that, I passed my Part 3 (exactly how I do with my learners). I never felt under pressure to succeed, I was supported and that I could ask anyone of the trainers for help/assistance at any point.
Thank you so much for all the support and I like that this hasn’t stopped since I qualified.
This is why I am now part of the business, we’re a team and I really enjoy that especially in a role that can be isolating at times.
Thanks again Derek Rodgers 👍🚗👍read more
Jackie is a great driving instructor, without her patience I would have struggled to learn the more difficult... manoeuvres. She kept the lessons interesting and fun and worked around my schedule. Revision material provided helped to keep things fresh in my memory. I would recommend Jackie to anyone thinking of taking driving lessons. Kal Williamsread more

Loved doing my ADI Training with insight2drive. Why? It was fun and hardwork at the same time. Since becoming a... professional ADI, I enjoy being part of a team of like minded instructors whose aim is to teach safe competent driving for life and not just pass a test. Kathy and the training team continue to provide CPD (continuous professional development) to all the team so we keep our standards high, which makes us the best training academy in the region for learners to be the best they can.
5 stars all the way guys �����read more
Leanne was recommended to me by a friend in work, after being let down by my previous driving instructor who couldn't... fit lessons in for me around my work schedule. After failing my first driving test at Southport in the summer with my previous instructor, I had already rebooked my test in Norris Green for the beginning of November when i started my lessons with Leanne in September. We had a lot of work to do in a short space of time. Leanne went out of her way to make time for me and pushed me to do the best i can. She was always thorough in her lessons and helped calm my nerves as i was a really anxious driver. I passed first time using insight2drive and can not thank Leanne enough for helping me, would recommend her to anyone!read more
One of their drivers Andy has robbed me off my money, cancelled on me every week with fake excuses and cancelled on my... friend the next day with a complete other excuse so I asked for my money back (6 weeks in a row he cancelled), he then only partly gave me my money back (after waiting over 3 weeks for it) and kept the rest and is now ignoring all messages, I have contacted the company who are also blanking my messages. I’m not one to complain usually especially as he was previously a good instructor but taking somebody’s money and not repaying them back when you haven’t provided a service is disgraceful. I don’t see how you can expect someone to pass their test if you cancel most weeks. I have tried to sort this out with both Andy and Insight 2 Drive and both are now ignoring me so I will be taking this furtherread more
When I first started with Leanne I hadnt drove on the road for about 4 years and had really bad habits from driving a... forklift she was really patient and I felt really comfortable with her all have the lessons were enjoyable and she managed to get threw in under 3 months with a 1st time pass I couldn't recommend insight2drive highly enough and especially Leanne she was brilliant.read more
I was recommended insight to drive by my friend Amanda who was also a driving instructor, I was buying a birthday... package for my son, he was allocated Jerry Dowling as his instructor, I couldn't have asked for a better instructor he has helped Sam so much, and today he passed his test. Well done Sam and many thanks for all your help Jerry.read more
I began my driving lessons with another school shortly after my 18th birthday and it was horrific. I had an instructor... who was a family friend and did us a 'discount' for this relationship. It was the biggest waste of time and money that i had ever invested in and after almost 40 hours of driving around Liverpool whilst he was on his phone and other distracting things I stopped and restarted when I was 20. I started with Leanne and after one lesson she gave me her estimated number of lessons I would require in order to pass to which i was shocked as it was so low!!! Even though I had a few bad habits from the instructor before. I absolutely loved my driving lessons and am writing this review 4 hours after passing 1st time in the time frame which Leanne had said it would be. She is an amazing instructor who I beyond trust and will be recommending to any friends or family who tell me they are thinking of learning to drive. I had an absolute ball on my lessons and am now considering to do my pass plus in order to do more lessons with her as i enjoyed them so much!! Many Thanks Leanne!! Don't think I could have done it without you!!read more
