Lanes School of Driving was established in 1914, since which time we’ve gone from strength to strength – growing through word of mouth and building a reputation for exceptional driving instruction.
We consider each of our pupils as individuals – and we deliver bespoke instruction around your needs. Should you wish to learn quickly, our intensive driving course will be well-suited; alternatively, if you want to learn over a longer period, our weekly appointments will be ideal.
We offer theory lessons as either standalone courses, or as a part of your practical lessons. Further courses beyond your driving test include: Pass Plus, Motorway Driving, Advanced Driving and Parking Skills. Our cars are all of an excellent quality and are well-maintained, right now our fleet includes both Minis and BMW Series 1.
Lanes deliver one-to-one tuition – offering complete attention from your instructor and allowing for errors to be corrected quickly. We can collect and drop you off, and can provide lessons each week on the same day, at the same time, or at different times for each lesson. This approach allows your driving lessons to fit in around your busy life.
Our driving school has more than 40 instructors – allowing for you to select an instructor who is suited to you. Each of our instructors have years of experience and have looked after pupils of all ages. They understand that pupils will naturally be nervous, and have methods for calming you down and reassuring you.
Our instructors are both Approved and DSA registered; you’ll have a single instructor for every lesson for the duration of your learning. Meeting with the same instructor will ensure that they come to know the issues that you may be struggling to grasp.
Learning to drive can be absolutely nerve wracking; for female pupils, do so under the instruction of a male instructor can make the prospect even more daunting.
Lanes female instructors are approachable and sympathetic; they’ll ensure that you feel at ease and ready to get to grips with learning to drive.
Some say that manual based cars offer a driver more control, however we have found that some pupils prefer to learn in an automatic car.
Automatic cars remove the need to learn manual gears and overcome the issue of learning to avoid stalling; as such, learners do generally tend to pick up driving more quickly when learning in an automatic car.
