Lanes School of Driving has been teaching pupils to drive for more than a century. Established in 1914, today our reputation precedes us for all of the right reasons.
We offer bespoke driving lessons, designing our courses around each individual pupil we look after on a one-to-one basis; this allows your instructor to commit their complete attention to you. What’s more, as the same instructor will be teaching you from the very first lesson until test day, you’ll benefit from their understanding of your current driving challenges and capabilities.
We provide intensive courses (for those who are looking for a pass as fast as possible) and accommodate pupils’ hectic lives by allowing them to define their own timetable. You may book your weekly lessons in advance for the same day and time, or we can alter your bookings each week. We’re happy to both pick you up, and drop you off.
We offer theory courses as a separate course, or we can integrate theory learning into your practical lessons.
Further courses that we offer beyond a pass include: Pass Plus, Motorway Driving, Advanced Driving and Parking Skills.
Our fleet of vehicles are of the high-quality that you should expect; we currently stock both BMW Series 1 and Minis.
When looking for a driving instructor in Locksbottom, BR6, you need to know that whoever you choose, will be DSA registered, qualified as an Approved Driving Instructor and able to calm your nerves.
Each of our 40 driving instructors are all of this, and more – they have many years’ experience and have taught pupils of every age from 17 years old and upwards.
We appreciate how scary learning to drive can be and for some female learners, we know that they’d prefer to be taught by a fellow female.
For this reason, our team comprises of a selection of female instructors – each of whom are skilled at calming nerves and overcoming initial fears.
Manual cars are considered by some to offer the driver more control; that said however, we know that some learners are simply apprehensive about learning to drive in a manual car.
Our fleet includes a selection of automatics, in which pupils often progress to their test faster – perhaps this is not least due to being able to avoid stalling and having to grapple with gear changes.
