My Aims

The ‘N’ in NMH is me, Nicky. I love to drive, and I love to teach.

A mum of two grown-up kids, I started the school in 2016 with the aim of giving confidence and reassurance to learner drivers. And – importantly – to make learning to drive an enjoyable, rather than nerve-wracking, experience!

What you’ll get from me is down-to-earth, straight-talking tuition. I will encourage you to push yourself if I think you can do better, but never force you way beyond your comfort zone. As a learner, you are my entire focus - you dictate the pace. However long it might take, I provide the support, reassurance and security to make your road to good driving a happy and safe one.

Your Targets

CovidSAFE NMH Driving School

I love to see you change up from being nervous and uncertain to being assured and in charge. And I love to see those big smiles when you pass your Driving Test! 

But my target for you goes much further than simple exam success; I aim to give you all the tools you’ll ever need to become a safe, confident driver for life. Come rain or shine, fog or ice, motorways, traffic jams – everything the road can throw at you.


And let’s have some fun on the way!

On Target NMH Driving School

My teaching areas are essentially the NG9 and NG10 postcodes, though I will consider pupils living just outside these. Unfortunately pick-up addresses on the other side of Nottingham, or further afield, present practical problems for lesson time-tabling!

  • Wherever possible, I will pick you up and drop you off, before and after lessons

  • Please ask for latest info on any recent COVID-19 requirements

  • Before we begin tuition, you must be able to show me either a valid UK provisional or full driving licence in your name

I would recommend Nicky to everyone looking for a driving instructor in Nottingham. She is very supportive and patient with lots of expertise!

At the start of my first lesson, Nicky gave me a book where I could record my lessons and my achievements. As well as what I should work on next. It was very helpful as a refresher whilst learning and even now that I have passed. Nicky also uses dash cam footage, pictures and diagrams on her tablet to help you understand manoeuvres, road layouts etc. All really useful! If you are unsure or don't understand Nicky always tries to figure out a way that will help.

Thank you for the support over my year of learning with you and since I have passed

Nicky is a very supportive driving instructor! I needed refresher lessons and to get used to driving on the other side of the road. She made me feel comfortable from the start and her comments were always helpful and constructive. Great teacher Thanks a lot

Kelly Sivri

I can't recommend Nicky enough! I'd had some time off lessons after a bad experience with another instructor and a weird year and Nicky was the perfect person to get my confidence back. I really appreciated her attention to detail, acceptance of my anxiety and kindness but she also takes no nonsense. The last gift she gave me was telling me after I'd passed that she'd already booked somebody in my spot - I love her unending confidence. Thank you!!

Eleanor Burke

Very supportive from start to finish, kind and helpful. Great communication about lesson changes etc. Works around your ‘e availability. Thanks a million Nicky! 

Jamie Juffs

After not haven driven for a long time I'd lost all hope in getting on the road again. Nicky really helped me build my confidence up again by being really patient and understanding exactly the style of learning which was required for me. I feel I have gained so much more knowledge in a short period of time. she is well organised, commited and cares about who she teaches. I am now able to start going out in my own car and really appreciate your time and effort put into each lesson! I can't thank you enough xx

Tuition Fees

I prefer to give 1.5 hour lessons (2 hours or more for motorway tuition) – I feel that 1 hour tends to make us feel too rushed:


  • Block booking of 8 or more standard lessons = £52.50 per lesson

  • ‘Pay as you go’ standard lesson = £54

  • Motorway lesson, minimum 2 hours = £44 per hour


(So hourly rate comparison is from as little as £35 per hour)


By far the easiest way to pay for your lessons is by online bank transfer – convenient for us both - please ask me for details.
