Driving Lessons Bristol

Learn to drive with one of our local driving instructor professionals, and each of your driving lessons will be adapted and tailored to help you progress towards reaching the driving test standard at a pace that suits your ability and comfort zone.

Most people think that all driving instructors are the same, but did you know that an amazing 30% of learner drivers change their driving instructors before ever taking a driving test. That's a staggering 234'000 learner drivers that change instructors every year.

So what does this tell you about driving instructors? Well, for one, we are not all the same, and your choice of driving instructor is a very important one that can make a massive difference to your progress and the cost of learning to drive.

Driving Blind at Henstridge Airfield

Driving Instructors from 2nd2None Driving School recently had a fun-filled day giving the wonderful people from Dorset Blind Association and Somerset Sight the chance to get behind the wheel and experience driving our cars.

This is something we have done once a year for the past 6 years, and it's something that a lot of us look forward to being involved in.

Our top speed for the day of this latest event, June 15, 2019 was 81mph in the Manual 208 and 85mph in the Automatic 208. We held this event at Henstridge Airfield, where we also run our regular Under-17 Driving Sessions.

Manual Driving Lessons

We offer manual driving lessons across the Southwest region of the UK, including Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bath, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, and Cornwall. We have a great team of more than 34 local driving instructors providing this service using a variety of dual-controlled cars. Please check with us that we cover your postcode area.

The type of car you will use for your driving lessons will depend on the instructor you are assigned, but relax, as it will be the exact same car that you will take your driving test in when you are ready. Our customer service team will be able to advise you on the type of vehicle before you book your lessons.

Most of the instructors work Monday through Friday with occasional weekend lessons; lessons are usually available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Please call our customer support team for more details on weekly local driving lessons where you live.

Automatic Driving Lessons

Automatic Driving Lessons

Learning to drive in an automatic car can take a lot of the stress out of learning to drive and make the whole process easier to achieve.

Most pupils will get on fine with clutch control and changing gears after a couple of hours, but for some of us, it can prove a real challenge, especially when we have everything else to concentrate on while learning to drive.

We have a team of experienced driving instructors that specialise in delivering Automatic Driving Lessons in the following areas: Bristol, Bath, Chippenham, Trowbridge, Warminster, Frome, Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Wincanton, Yeovil, Exeter, Holsworthy, Bude, Launceston, Barnstable, and the nearby areas.

Automatic Intensive Driving Courses are also available in most areas.

Driving Lessons Exeter

Intensive Driving Courses / Crash Courses

Intensive driving courses are the perfect way to get your driving experience and pass your driving test in record time.

We have a range of courses over 3 to 8 days designed for all levels of previous driving experience, and we promise to book your driving test while you are on the phone and work the course back from the driving test date.

You will need to have passed your theory test before anyone can book your practical test, and depending on where you live, there may be a wait for a driving test date. Our customer service team will be able to give you the next available date while on the phone.

We often get great results with these driving courses, but as the name suggests, these courses are intensive and may not be suitable for everyone. Please discuss any concerns you might have with our team before booking.

Intensive driving courses are available in both Manual and Automatic cars and are available in most areas across the Southwest of the UK with our experienced team of driving instructors. Each intensive course comes with a free driving test re-test just in case you don't pass the first time due to nerves getting the better of you on the day.

Please check with our customer service team when booking on the availability of manual and automatic cars in your local area.

Under 17's Driving Lessons

This can be a great way to start your learning-to-drive experience in the safety of our off-road driving course. These courses are open to anyone aged 10 or older and allow you to learn the basics of driving without the constant fear and worry of busy traffic that you will find on the roads.

Most pupils that attend our Pre-17 driving days are aged between 10 and 17, but our oldest pupil so far at our Bath & West venue was 100-year-old great-grandmother Joyce Morgan from Bristol, who is registered blind but had a great time at the driving experience day back in 2017. A video of her driving session can be found on our Youtube channel.

Everything you learn here will go towards your driving lessons when you turn 17 and can actually help you progress much quicker on the road once you start. These courses are run once a month in Dorset and Somerset.

We have also run driving days for the wonderful people from the Dorset Blind and Somerset Sight associations, giving them the chance to experience driving at our venues. Please contact us for more details if you would like to know more.

The best driving school in Shaftesbury

When I first started driving, I was so nervous, but learning to drive with 2nd2None was great; I felt at ease in no time, and I've just passed my test for the first time! My driving instructor, James, was very helpful, and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him!

Driving Lessons Wincanton

I did my intensive course with James, and he got me to a pass standard after I was ready to give up. He is a really friendly and nice instructor. Thank you!

Why Did You Choose This Driving School? They had the best reviews!

Driving Lessons Gillingham Dorset

Without my driving instructor, James, I wouldn't have been able to pass. After my accident, he built up my courage to learn to drive again.

The free access to Theory Test Pro was my revision to pass my theory, and without it I probably wouldn't have.

Overall, my driving experience was fun, giggly, and a memory I plan to keep forever. Thank you, James

Driving Lessons Devizes

I took an intensive course with Ray in August and then took three more lessons with Nicky prior to my test. Both instructors were so kind, patient, and clear, and they made me feel so confident behind the wheel. I took my test six weeks after my first ever time behind the wheel of a car and passed it the first time. The intensive course was great; I couldn’t believe how much I learned in just 5 days, and the catch-up lessons got me prepared perfectly for the test. I could not recommend them highly enough; both Nicky and Ray were so fantastic! And I’m so happy to have passed! Thank you a billion trillion
