Its tough looking for the right driving instructor or driving school in Exeter with so many to choose from how do you know which driving school is the right one for you and your needs. Its not surprising that most people think that all driving instructors are the same. Did you know that an average 30% of learner drivers change their driving instructor before ever taking a driving test.

Put it another way, thats a staggering 234,000 people every year that change their driving instructor. So this tells you that we are not all the same, in fact there are some very big differences between driving schools and different driving instructors in Exeter. 

So choose wisely as the choice you make, can make a very real difference to the time and amount you pay to get your full driving licence.

When starting your driving lessons in Exeter, your instructor will take you to a quiet place to start you off such as Tollards Road, Lakeside Avenue or maybe Pellinore Road depending on where you are in Exeter as these locations will give you the chance to get used to the car and learn the basics before moving on to more complicated roads such as the Edmund St roundabout for an example.

Your instructor will take things at a pace that suits you, always encouraging you and supporting you to achieve more with each driving lesson.

My driving instructor was Jim Brimicombe. Thanks to my instructor Jim for his patience with me. I can say he is just a brilliant and will recommend him strongly. Passing today was only possible with his calming words and believing in me. Thanks Jim for everything.

Local Weekly Driving Lessons Exeter

Most people learn to drive by having weekly lessons in Exeter 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.

Your local driving instructor will be happy to collect you from home, school, College, University or work and start you off in a quiet part of Exeter to help you build your confidence before tackling the busy main roads.

We have two local driving instructors delivering quality manual driving lessons in Exeter, Jim and Darren who both have years of experience helping people pass their driving test and we have some great reviews for them both below. 

Manual driving lessons in Exeter are 2 hours for £95 or a block of 10 hours for £450.00

Darren was an amazing instructor and helped put a very nervous person at ease! Passed first time and in less hours than I'd expected. I couldn't recommend him more, especially to females who may be worried about sitting in a car with a complete stranger (like I was)

Automatic Driving Lessons Exeter

Automatic driving lessons are growing in popularity and can offer you a much quicker way of reaching the driving test standard and for you to get on the road sooner.

We have a great local driving instructor Ray Hensley who provids Automatic Driving Lessons in Exeter and the surrounding area. Ray has been a driving instructor for many years and uses the latest Toyota Yaris Hybrid for automatic driving lessons in Exeter.

With automatic driving lessons, there are no gears or clutches for you to worry about, so this can take a lot of the pressure and stress out of learning to drive. Because there is less to concentrate on, it will also free you up to concentrate on other, more important things on the road. Automatic driving lessons normally mean that it will take you less time to reach the driving test standard, and this can actually save you more money than with manual lessons.

Automatic driving lessons in Exeter are 2 hours for £95 or 10 hours for £450

My driving instructor was Jim Brimicombe in Exeter. Jim is a very good and patient instructor. I wouldn’t have passed without his perseverance. Thank you very much and I will recommend Jim as the best instructor.

My driving lessons were always structured in a way that helped me progress and understand what I had to achieve.

I found this driving school on Google and chose them because of the great reviews. The office staff were very helpful and got me booked in for my first driving lesson with Jim.

Carrie Hyde - Exeter

Darren is an incredible instructor. He is reliable, kind, compassionate, easy to learn from, very patient, good sense of humour, and an all round great guy. He was such a fabulous instructor that he got me through my test first time, the day before my Husbands funeral. Not an easy task for him to cope with all the emotions I was going through. My husband passed away during the time I was learning to drive, but Darren was wonderful and supported me every step of the way, he is an amazing guy, and I have much to thank him for.

Jim from Exeter helped me pass my test with only a few minors. I had lessons with a different instructor before hand but found Jim more articulate and found driving a lot easier with him and very professional. Will keep you on the ball and is always talking reminding you of your good points and bad points. I like his method of teaching would use again if needed will be recommending to any friends who need to pass their test first time.

Jim in Exeter was a very professional friendly and chilled out instructor. I am very grateful for all his help and support!

Joshua Mitchell Cole - Exeter

My driving instructor was Jim Brimicombe.
I’ve found learning to drive a fantastic experience. After driving with a private instructor for 20 hours, my driving was really poor. He hadn’t taught me any habits and manoeuvres. With Jim, he really honed in on the key habits required for driving. By the time I passed, I had developed such strong habits that it helped me to focus on the more complex scenarios that experienced drivers I through. I’m really pleased with my progress and can’t recommend Jim enough.
