Soap opera makers had tried hospitals, garages, factories, football teams and many other scenarios.

This twice-weekly 30-minute drama series from ATV introduced the day-to-day dramas of Major Alan Brock (Anthony Newlands), an ex-army officer who uses his army gratuity to start a driving school in the Midlands.

The teatime series went out on Tuesdays and Thursdays but by episode 16 there were problems and Alan was trying to sell the business.

He must have succeeded because the following Tuesday saw Honey Lane take over the Driveway timeslot.
