Driving Lessons in St Mary Cray, BR5
It has been over 100 years since Lanes School of Driving first opened our doors. Back in 1914 we began helping pupils to learn how to drive, and ever since we have grown into one of the largest independent driving schools in the UK. However, we have never lost touch with the principles Fred Lane founded the company on, with our pupils remaining the focus of our attention at all times.
Everyone has busy lives and we understand it can be difficult to find enough time for driving lessons. That’s why we are as flexible as possible to accommodate people’s hectic lifestyles by creating a flexible schedule that suits them. Let us know if you need single lessons or weekly sessions and we’ll do the rest. We’ll even pick you up and drop you off after each lesson, if required.
With a fleet of over 100 cars, you can be sure that your vehicle will provide all the comfort and technology you need to learn quickly and effectively. We also provide a guarantee that every student will spend time with the same instructor in a one-on-one environment.

All of our female driving instructors will work at a pace you are comfortable with. Their aim is to make you feel more relaxed behind the wheel, helping to calm your nerves and gain confidence. Simply let us know if you want to work with a female instructor and we’ll arrange it for you.
Automatic Driving Instructors in St Mary Cray, BR5
Not every learner wants to use a manual car during their lessons. This can be for a number of reasons. Perhaps the gear changes are too daunting. Or they are scared of stalling the car out in traffic. Whatever the reason, we can arrange for you to use an automatic car anytime you need.
While manual cars do provide more control, automatic vehicles will never stall which means learners will not be stuck nervously in the middle of the road. They also provide a smoother ride, putting pupils in control and many progress rapidly towards their driving test as a result.
