Farewell and Thank You Hugh

Hugh Vass has been one of our outstanding driving instructors since 2008. Eleven years of excellent training and many hundreds of new drivers given the skills they need to pass their driving test and more importantly become safe drivers on our ever increasingly busy roads.

Now; however he is retiring and taking a well deserved opportunity to wind down, relax and follow his other interests and pursuits. We wish him well for the future and extend a very warm thank you for maintaining his own high standards and those of Borders Driving School. 

Hugh will see all his current students through to their driving test but will not be taking on any new students. So you will still see his car, with the Borders sign board on the roof, for a while longer.

Once again Hugh, thank you for eleven years of excellent professional training.

In-Car Payment Available

We can now take credit and debit card payments in car with the new mobile card terminal. So you don’t need to rush to the bank before your lesson or carry loads of cash.
Not all of our instructors have decided to take cards so check before hand with your individual instructor for ways that they can accept payment.
