A typical lesson with Lanes
One of the reasons why our driving school is so successful is because we treat all our students as individuals. As a learner driver, you will learn at your own pace and have your own strengths and weaknesses. Our driving instructors fully appreciate this, giving you the support you need to develop into a confident driver, ready to pass your test.
These are some of the reasons why our learner drivers enjoy working with us:
- Flexibility – we work around your busy schedule and book in lessons at times to suit you.
- Patient instructors – our driving teachers have years of experience and adapt to each and every pupil and learning style.
- All-round learning – our instructors will tailor the lesson to you, addressing any areas where you need more support.
- Safe, comfortable cars – we have our own fleet of dual control vehicles, especially adapted for learner drivers.
Continued development is important as well. If you feel you want to carry on learning once you have passed your driving test, we have a number of after pass course options for you, including:
- Pass plus
- Motorway driving
- Parking skills
- Advanced driving
