All about Lanes School of Driving

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.

At Lanes, your needs come first. You will be matched with your own driving instructor who is DVSA registered as an Approved Driving Instructor. You will retain your instructor throughout your time with us to ensure consistency and continuity. All of our lessons are taught on a one-to-one basis to ensure that there are no distractions from other students.

Our instructors have years of experience and have taught all ages from 17 to over 70. If you are nervous our instructors will be on hand to reassure you and give you guidance.

At Lanes, you can learn at your own pace. We recommend our intensive courses for if you want to really fast-track your progress. If you have a busy schedule you can opt for single lessons as your schedule permits.

We have a fleet of modern cars available for you, fully equipped and featuring dual controls for your safety.

Our instructors can pick you up from your doorstep before each lesson and return you home safely when the lesson is over.
