Bin-The-L-PLates has been in operation for 14 years offering a mix of driving lessons and intensive driving courses in the Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme area. The name was born from the dream for all provisional licence holder….. to Bin The L Plates and gain a full driving licence and enjoy the freedom that achieving that dream brings. Since the launch the company has experienced substantial success for the many drivers who have chosen to use our services with many pupils leaving positive feedback and reviews.

Why Chose Bin-The-L-Plates ?

As a fully qualified driving instructor we display a green badge in the tuition vehicle to prove we have successfully completed suitable training to teach people to drive and passed the DVSA examinations to qualify to teach. Some driving schools place learners with a trainee instructor who display a pink DVSA badge and still charge full lesson rates without revealing that the instructor isn’t fully qualified. You demand the best possible driving tuition and at Bin-The-L-Plates you can be assured that this will be delivered.

Your instructor has been assessed by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) as a Grade A Instructor, giving you the reassurance that you have chosen the best possible instructor.

At Bin-The-L-Plates we are all always working hard to make the tuition better than anyone else and strive to exceed your expections at every opportunity. With years of experience, and a pleasant and non-judgmental style of instruction which engages with the pupil, the daunting prospect of learning to drive is eliminated.

For many new drivers the prospect of learning to drive can be a nervous or traumatic experience and at Bin-The-L-Plates we believe the more you relax and enjoy the lessons, the more you can learn. If you enjoy your lessons you’ll build up your confidence and your driving skills more quickly.

At Bin-The-L-Plates there is a Driving Lesson Money Back Guarantee that your instructor will never shout at you. You can be assured that you will be treated with respect and any mistakes that you make will be assessed in a non-judgmental way, progress is made through helping the pupil assess any mistakes and guiding them to achieve their lesson goals.

Bin-The-L-Plates Nominated Charity

Bin-The-L-Plates has chosen ‘Speed of Sight‘ as their nominated charity, and all money raised through charitable work will be going directly to Speed of Sight to help in the fantastic work the do.

Speed of Sight is a charity that hosts driving days for disabled adults and children, their families and friends. This helps to inspire self-confidence, social interaction, physical and mental wellbeing throughout the UK at the mant trackdays that are held each year.

Speed of Sight was founded by Mike Newman in 2013. Mike is the fastest blind man on the planet – a multi Guiness World Record Holder, including setting the land speed record for a blind person driving a car at an average speed of 200.5 mph and a truck at a speed of 120.04 mph.
The charity currently own 2 custom built, open top, 2 seater sports cars and 1 off road buggy. All cars are dual controlled and have the unique feature of 2 steering wheels.

Speed of Sight has created a new initiative to raise money and put on more track days for as many individuals as possible, by starting up ‘Pass A Pound‘.

Bin-The-L-Plates will donate £10 for every student who pass their driving test, and hopefully the successful pupil also donate something, even as little as £1 which will go towards costs need for each trackday.
I’m sure pupils will agree that now they have passed their driving test and achieved the freedom to drive themselves, a small donation will help others receive the magical gift of driving.
Donations will be done using a text donation when we take their celebratory driving test photo, and will be posted on to social media to share in their success.

Bin-The-L-Plates ‘Hall of Fame’

Feedback From Antonia ..." Clive Copeland has managed to achieve what I thought was impossible! I am the type of learner driver, that driving instructors avoid at all costs… I'm dyslexic, a serial mistake maker, have a negative attitude, and I panic for no reason. I originally started learning how to drive when I was 17 years old, but after a few lesson with my old driving instructors, I realised all of them had the same characteristics in common… They'd get frustrated with me easily, made me feel stupid, cause me to panic, constantly cancel my lessons, and when I'd make mistakes they wouldn't explain to me what I was doing wrong.Then when my older sister passed her driving test on her 1st attempt with Clive, she recommended my partner who also passed his driving test with Clive. Clive is a tremendous, hardworking instructor who goes the extra mile for his pupils, he never made me feel stupid or got frustrated with me, even when I got frustrated with myself ! Nothing was ever too much trouble for him, and when I made mistakes he always took the time to break them down and always helped me to figure out where I was going wrong which helped me to improve my driving skills and got me ready for my testIn less than 5 months of starting my driving lessons from scratch with Clive, he had gave me back the confidence I lost all them years ago and made me realise that I'm not an idiot after all! I passed my test today on my 1st attempt. Thank you again Clive! "
