Pupils often lead hectic lives and Lanes offers great flexibility in timetabling lessons. Regular weekly classes are offered as well as single one-off lessons.
Lanes is committed to offering pupils one on one lessons. This ensures that pupils do not have to share their instructor with other pupils, ensuring the optimum learning experience.
Lanes is proud to have an array of excellent modern vehicles for our pupils to enjoy.
For maximum convenience, Lanes offers pupils the option of being collected and dropped off by their instructors.
When you are learning to drive for the first time, you will have the option of either learning in a manual car or an automatic car. You may have heard that automatic cars are easier to drive. On the other hand you may have heard that manual cars give you greater control. At Lanes we will give you the option of learning either in a manual or an automatic.
Automatic cars are 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.
