Lanes School of Driving has been teaching the public to drive since 1914. Imagine the changes we've seen - from the early cars with no power steering and solid tyres up to the cars of today with all the assistance a driver could need. Starting from humble beginnings, Lanes was founded on the principle of quality instruction at affordable prices. Over the years Lanes’ reputation grew via word of mouth, and today we are one of the largest independent Driving Schools in the country. Lanes have taught generations of drivers and we can draw upon a wealth of experience that few schools can match.

  • Learn with Lanes

    Weekly or single lesson tuition is still one of the most popular ways to learn to drive, and this will give you the opportunity to proceed at a steady pace with plenty of time to practice between lessons. If you looking to condense your learning experience, you can however choose one of Lanes intensive driving courses.

  • Nationwide Intensive Crashcourses

    An intensive course gives you the opportunity to learn to drive in a very short space of time. Not all students will need the same course; some having already taken lessons with a driving instructor or practiced with family, others at the start of their learning and should take a longer course. Lanes course advisors will willingly give advice on the best course for you.

driving lessons in bromley kentAutomatic cars are just easier to drive. With manual cars, you will have to physically change the gears and control the clutch pedal. This is a big challenge if you have not driven before. Bad clutch control will lead to frequent stalling of the car which is a common problem for beginners. With automatic cars all you will have to worry about is steering the car and going faster or slowing down. There is no clutch and all the gear changing is being done for you. If you are not confident about your driving abilities or just want to learn as quickly and efficiently as possible, automatic cars could be the right choice for you.
