17 Plus History

The driving school ‘17 PLUS DRIVING TUITION’ was started up in June 1984 by Martin Wyrill and Malcolm French; who initially worked as sole traders. The business was operated quite successfully for two years this way and together using Martin’s retail management experience and Malcolm’s sales management experience they went about building a multiple car driving school.

Since Office Manager – Lesley Heal – came on board in the late nineties, the business has gone from strength to strength. This has now been built up into the most experienced driver training specialists in Norfolk.

In July 2006, 17 PLUS purchased Cromer Driving Centre from Michael Davies – a local businessman, who over 43 years, formed a relationship with the local community, building a reputation in the Cromer area. This purchase was designed to strengthen and service the North Norfolk part of the business.

Cromer Driving Centre caters for all ages – from the young and eager types who can’t wait to get behind the wheel on their 17th birthday – to the more mature person who may have left learning to drive to later in life before enjoying the freedom which driving will undoubtedly give. We aim to give you the learning experience in a friendly and enjoyable environment – using local instructors with local knowledge.
