WeeklyDriving Lessons Bristol
Most people learn to drive by having weekly lessons in Bristol and we would recommend that as a learner driver, you have two hour lessons at a time. Two hour driving lessons will allow you to learn more and spend more time on each subject meaning you can be ready for your driving test quicker than if you only took hourly lessons each week. This in turn can help you save money as you will need less hours to be ready for your driving test.
Driving Lessons Bristol currently have five local male and female driving instructors offering manual driving lessons in Bristol and the surrounding areas. We even have a discounted intro deal to get you started with your driving lessons.
Automatic Driving Lessons Bristol
Automatic Lessons are available as Intensive Courses only
Automatic driving lessons can be ideal for anyone who struggles with changing gear, who finds driving a very complex task (even after a fair few lessons, when for most of us the whole clutch-gear-biting point thing has switched to autopilot mode)
Driving an automatic car has definite benefits too. The car changes gear for you at the appropriate time, so you’ll rarely over-rev an automatic car; and although your fuel consumption may be slightly less economical than a manual car, overall it can make a worthwhile difference in the level of effort required when driving on longer journeys.
It also makes driving a lot less stressful as all you need to do is control the brake and the accelerator which give you so much more time to think about the road and other road users and not thinking about your clutch and gears. We often find this can also lead to you needing less overall driving lessons as you will pick up driving a lot quicker which can save you both time and money.
We are also able to offer you a one week intensive driving course in Bristol and the surrounding areas. These are sometimes also referred to as Crash Courses and these intensive courses can be an ideal way for you to reach the driving test standard sooner and be ready to take your driving test at an earlier date than you would with conventional weekly driving lessons.
This can be a perfect way to learn to drive if you need your driving licence fast as maybe a new job offer depends on it or you are simply too busy for weekly driving lessons.
By having your driving lessons close together, it can also mean you need less hours of driving overall to reach the driving test standard and so in turn an intensive driving course can save you money on the cost of learning to drive.
These type of driving courses can be very tiring and require serious commitment from you. They may not be suitable for everyone and it is recommended that you have at least had a couple of driving lessons before considering a one week intensive driving course.
Before we can book your practical driving test or your intensive driving course you will need to have passed your theory test as we prefer to book your practical driving test for the last day of your intensive driving course as this proves to be better for you than having to wait for the driving test.
We run under 17's driving tuition at The Royal Bath and West Showground. These driving sessions are open to anyone aged 12 and over that meet the minimum height of 4ft 8ins.
All sessions are one to one with a qualified driving instructor using dual controlled car at our off road training area. Please visit our Under 17's tuition page above.
Car & Trailer B+E Towing Lessons
Car & Trailer towing lessons are available across Bristol with our experienced driving instructors.
If you passed your driving test after January 1st 1997 then you will need to take an additional driving test to tow large trailers and gain entitlement to B+E.
To find out more about our Trailer Towing Lessons please call our head office on 0117 9051155
All Driving Instructors in Bristol are the same,
Its not surprising that most people think that all driving instructors in Bristol are the same but just like teachers at school or college, there are teachers you like and make things interesting and there are sometimes teachers that you dont get on with or are not engaging you in their lessons.
Well driving instructors are no different and there are good and bad driving instructors in Bristol. In fact 30% of learner drivers change their driving instructor before ever making an attempt at a driving test.
That's a wopping 234,000 people every year that change their driving instructor. Why do so many people change their driving instructor you may ask!
Simply put we are all different and you need to do your research before choosing the right driving instructor for you and your needs.
Plus on top of this only 44% of pupils pass their driving test first time so choosing the right driving instructor or school really can make that difference to your success.
So what should you be looking for when
choosing the right driving instructor in Bristol?
So think about what you are looking for in a driving instructor, do you want a driving instructor in Bristol that will explain everything clearly, that will give you the structured training and set you achievable goals to help you to pass your driving test first time with the least amount of driving lessons but still be taught everything you need to make you a great and safe driver for life.
Choosing the wrong driving instructor for your driving lessons in Bristol could mean you end up spending a lot of time sitting by the side of the road simply discussing theory instead of actually driving the car.
Or maybe you will just driving around the roads of Bristol with no objective or structure to your driving lessons and not really teaching you much, let alone what you need to pass your driving test and this can lead to a lot more driving lessons than you would normally need and of course a much higher cost to you for your driving lessons.
Cheap deals sound great,
But are they anygood?
So what is the best way to find the right driving instructor in Bristol? Do you go for the ultra cheap deal that sounds really good and wont cost you much but the driving instructor or driving school doesn't have any customer reviews.
And if they have no customer reviews then how do you know what their pass rate is like. How do you know that their driving tuition will offer you anything of value or that it will help you towards passing your driving test.
At the moment in Bristol the demand for driving lessons is massive and because of this a lot of the great driving instructors will have waiting lists and could be turning work away. If driving instructors are still offering cheap deals then you need to ask yourself why?
I know you want to pass your driving test as quickly as possible, but simply going with the only only driving instructor in town that has space when everyone else is full is not always in your best interest and probably will not help you pass any sooner as its false economy and you could be just wasting your money.
With many of these driving instructors you don't really know what you are getting until it is too late and it can actually mean you taking longer and it cost's you a lot more to pass your driving test.
Or what about choosing a driving instructor based on the quality of lessons in which if done right, can actually mean you need less hours than if you chose the driving instructor with the cheaper deal.
Which sounds better to you? Cheap driving lessons or quality driving lessons that deliver better results in less time and an overall cheaper cost to yourself.
Giving you a better learning experience
All our driving instructors in Bristol will set you achievable aims at the start of each driving lesson and will then get you on the road driving. We wont make you spend unnecessary hours sat at the side of the road watching other learners drive by, or ask you to drive around Bristol aimlessly and in the process not really learning anything of great importance.
Our aim is simple! To give you the exact structured driver training you need to pass your driving test 1st time as quickly and cheaply as possible while also making you a safe and considerate driver for life and that is why we are trusted by over 600 customers each week to deliver their driving lessons and help them pass their driving test.
One of the greatest sayings in life, is you get what you pay for. Why would driving lessons be any different.

Just passed my test with 4 minors. Couldn't have done it without the help of my mentor James. He is a fab instructor, his lessons are good fun and structured and he is always supportive, even when I feel unsure. He is always reliable, on time and honest, and he always sets a clear aim at the start of each lesson you know you are improving each time. Thank you James!!

I feel like I could conquer the world now and will be able to expand my business and finally be able to take my children on day trips without getting a bus everywhere!! Words cannot describe how much I owe to this man!! Thanks so much!!!! Xx
