Just passed today! I’m so happy and it’s all down to Nick Webb. He’s an amazing patient instructor and a lovely bloke aswell.
I passed in a relatively short time since lockdown was lifted and felt very safe with the adherence to covid regulations.
Absolutely can’t recommend him enough

Nick was absolutely smashing. Prompt, polite and a pleasure to have as an instructor. Would recommend to absolutely anyone, I can’t thank him enough! xx

Most people learn to drive by having weekly driving lessons in Bristol. We would recommend that as a learner driver, you have two hour lessons at a time. A two hour driving lesson will allow you to learn more and spend more time on each subject, meaning you can become a safe and confident driver in less time 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.

We currently have five local driving instructors offering manual and automatic driving lessons in Bristol and the surrounding areas. Your driving instructor will be happy to pick you up from home, work or college and will then take you to a safe, quiet and suitable area to start your driving lesson.

Driving Instructors Bristol

Depending on where you live in Bristol will depend on where your instructor takes you to start your driving lessons. If you live in North Bristol then you might start your driving lessons around roads like Ambleside Avenue in Southmead or Bradley Road in Patchway as both these locations are perfect for new learners. Alternativly it could be on Romney Avenue in Lockleaze.

If you are live in East Bristol then you might start your driving lessons in Burley Grove in Staple Hill, Moor Croft Drive in Emersons Green or Harrington Road in Stockwood.

For South Bristol then the likes of Torrington Avenue in Knowle or Newland Road in Withywood and of course you have places like Circular Road in Clifton or Coombe Dale Road in Sea Mills for anyone living in West Bristol.

There are literally hundreds of quiet areas for new learners to make a start on their driving lessons in Bristol and our team of local driving instructors will know the perfect place for where you live, so you can relax as you will be in safe hands.

Manual Driving Lessons in Bristol will cost you the following:

Manual driving lessons are £37.50 per hour and we offer a discount for a block booking of 10 hours

All lessons will be a minimum of 2 hours

Automatic Driving Lessons Bristol

Automatic Driving Lessons Bristol

Automatic Driving Lessons are available in parts of Bristol 

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.

Automatic Lessons are available in Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston, Henbury, Southmead, Filton, Horfield, Lockleaze, Bradley Stoke, Frenchay, Hambrook, Emersons Green, Warmley, Kingswood, Hannham, Longwell Green, Keynsham, Stockwood, Witchurch, Brislington, Knowle, Hengrove, Hartcliffe, Bishopsworth, Bedminster and near by areas. 

Automatic Driving Lessons in Bristol will cost you the following:

Automatic driving lessons are £40 per hour and we offer a discount for a block booking of 10 hours

All lessons will be a minimum of 2 hours

Alice Linnell

Possibly the best decision I ever made! Kevin is calm and has a flexible approach to lessons – in my case I needed to pass fairly quickly, so Kevin advised me to book my test for in 4 weeks’ time, so that we could then work towards that date. 

We also did mock tests as I was nearing my driving test day, which really helped in order to get me prepared for the test itself (I get very anxious under test conditions, so this was also a great tool for keeping my nerves in check on the test itself!)  

Intensive Driving Courses in Bristol

Intensive Driving Courses Bristol

Pass your driving test fast with our One Week Intensive Driving Course in Bristol.

Intensive Driving Courses are sometimes also referred to as Bristol Crash Courses and 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 Bristol 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 taking an intensive driving course can save you money on the cost of learning to drive.

Our team of local driving instructors will pick you up from home and you can take your driving test at any of the three Bristol DVSA test centres, they are located at Avonmouth, Brislington or Kingswood and we will look to see which one has the best availability for driving tests when you book your course.

Call our customer services team on Bristol 0117 9051155 for more details or take a look at our Intensive Driving Course page. You might be able to pass your driving test in time for the weekend. 

 Intensive Courses in Bristol are available in both Manual and Automatic cars.

Each Intensive Driving Course comes with a FREE re-test, just in case you dont pass your driving test first time.

Glenn Nwaki - Filton

My driving instructor was Nick, I just passed my test and I really have to say that my driving instructor was just the best guiding me, encouraging and helping me with my techniques and always making you feel comfortable with his jokes would definitely recommend.

Intensive Driving Courses

Esme Bertouche

My driving instructor was James Orgar and I’ve enjoyed my intensive course immensely. I felt supported informed and encouraged the whole time! 
James made it clear what we would be doing each day and asked me what I wanted to do as well. I found the driving school on Google and chose this school because of so many good reviews!
The office staff were helpful and listened to my needs, they were 100% faultless in this respect!
I would recommend James and the school to everyone I know who’s even considering learning to drive!
