We have been teaching people to drive for over 14 years, and as the largest independent driving school in the area offer real value-for-money driving lessons. Our instructors have countless hours of experience, humour, and a lot of patience!

Our aim is to provide you with all the skills necessary to be a good, safe, and courteous driver for life and understand the benefits of eco driving. See what our learners say about passing with us.

A guide to driving lesson durations

  • 60 mins – Progressively learn in regular 1 hour lessons. We’ll cover one subject at the start, and as you improve and gain confidence, increase that to more subjects and practice in each lesson.
  • 90 mins – A 90-minute lesson enables you to learn a subject and practice it straight away. We are able to travel from your location , with more time for real driving practice.
  • 120 mins – You can achieve two and half times (or more) in a 2-hour lesson than in an hour – it’s a more productive way to learn and practice. We are able to travel from your to the surrounding areas for real hands-on driving practice.
  • Driving Tests consist of a pre test hour and the test hour itself ( 2 hours in total )
  • This is the minimum charged for the driving test.

We also offer Refresher driving lessons for those who wish to return to driving after a break, or just wish to update their driving skills to meet the demands of modern driving.

Passed FIRST time with only two minors after learning with Aaron Shallcross for the past three weeks. I’d had a bit of driving experience before but Aaron quickly established what I needed to improve and was really patient and encouraging throughout. Had bad test day nerves but Aaron put me at ease, and really helped me to prepare. Without him I’d never have passed. Thanks you Aaron

Courtland Adams

Passed my driving test FIRST time the other day after having lessons with James Brewster, couldn’t recommend him enough, helped me out last minute as i needed a new instructor ASAP and he made me confident in my driving and really prepared me for the test, I wouldn’t of been able to pass without him thank you so much !

I would like to say a very big thank you to John for encouraging me to finally pass my test and not allow me to give up at the point other schools and instructors have over the years; I am going to miss his sense of humour and cheeky grin. I would recommend Pass Driving School 100%

Sandy Baxter-Muir

Passed FIRST time thanks to my instructor Richard Graham. He gave me the confidence to drive and was always patient with me. Thank you for everything!

I had a bad experience with an instructor with a different driving school previously so I was very nervous to start driving again but Liz (Camp) has been fantastic from day 1. She always put me at ease and made learning fun and stress free.She has endless patience and went above and beyond to make sure I had the best experience possible.I would recommend Liz and Pass to anyone who is looking to drive.I never thought I’d pass my test but thanks to Liz I passed first time .I will miss her !
