Driving Lessons Shaftesbury

Welcome to our driving school 

Shaftesbury Dorset is a fantastic place to live and work with its rich local history and quaint sleepy streets and of course the famous Gold Hill, but at the same time for many it can be a bit remote and a challenge to access the nearby towns and villages and this is where learning to drive in Shaftesbury can really help you access the outside world with ease. 

Not far from the A303 being able to drive will allow you to gain easy access to the nearby city of Salisbury or the towns of Wincanton or Yeovil and even further afield via the many adjoining routes such the A30 to Sherbourne or A350 to Dorchester, Weymouth or Poole for some decent shopping.

Our local team of driving instructors based here in Shaftesbury are able to help you become a safe, considerate and confident driver; we are here to help you gain your much desired freedom and independence. 

It doesn't matter what your previous driving experience is or even if you are a complete beginner, you're driving instructor will treat you as an individual and tailor your driving lessons to help you progress. 

Driving Instructors Shaftesbury

If this will be your first driving lessons then please relax, you're driving instructor will pick you up from the arranged meeting point and take you to a quiet suitable area to start your driving lesson, this could be somewhere like Heathfields Way / Sweetmans Road or Lower Blandford Road by the high school. You're driving instructor might even take you to the Peacemarsh area in nearby Gillingham, but dont worry, if you're driving instructor has to drive you to Gillingham from Shaftesbury for your first driving lessons then they will use this time to talk to you about driving a car and to demonstrate the correct procedure. No time will be wasted. 

If you have had driving lessons before then again please don't worry, all of our driving lessons start off with Q&A, we want to know your history or back ground of driving experience or knowledge, and don't worry as this isn't a test, we just want to know where you are at with your driving lessons so we know where to start off with your driving lessons. We don't want to waste time unnecessarily trying to teach you what you already know.

Automatic Driving Lessons Shaftesbury

So why take your driving lessons in an automatic car? 

Learn to drive in and automatic car is becoming more and more popular and not just from people that have struggled learning to drive in a manual car. 

Learning in an automatic is so much simpler, it takes away a lot of the stress and greatly speeds up most peoples progress when learning to drive. There is no clutch of fidgety gear stick to worry about, you dont have to worry about over revving that noisy engine as the car changes to the appropriate gear for you as you speed up or slow down.

Trailer Towing Courses (B+E)

Are you towing illegally? 

If like me, you were unlucky enough to pass your driving test after the 1st January 1997 then you will only be entitled to drive Category B vehicles with your driving licence. What this means is that you cannot tow any trailer over 750kg on your current car licence, this could limit you from towing some caravans and horseboxes or even a loaded car trailer and you will have to take an additional driving test in order to gain the B+E entitlement. 

So, what is the B+E trailer test and what do you need to do to get started? 

The driving test itself is pretty much like the normal driving test, as in you will be expected to drive to a high standard but this time the driving element of the driving test will last for around 50 minutes so you need to be able maintain that standard throughout the test. As part of the B+E driving test you will need to carry out an independent drive using local road signs. 

The best driving instructor in Shaftesbury

You will also be expected to uncouple and recouple the trailer in the correct order from the towing vehicle and carry out the reversing exercise at the test centre. 

You will also need to pass an eyesight check and answer some show me tell me questions about your trailer and load. 

You don't need to take an additional Theory Test. 

If you would like a 2-hour assessment then please get in touch and we would be glad to help.

I passed my driving test 1st time after completing a 36 hour intensive course with James having had no previous driving experience. Strongly recommend both 2nd2None as a driving school and James Orgar as an instructor!
I chose 2nd2None driving school for my intensive driving courses because of all the great customer reviews on Google.

Hannah Hedouin

James is the best teacher I have ever had. I don’t think I could have passed the test without his help. Perfect balance between friendly encouragement and conveying information in an easy to understand way. With his help I passed first time with only 2 minors. Just a few months ago I was a very nervous driver and thought I would never be able to drive. I can’t thank James enough!

Emily Gautrey

Right from the start I enjoyed my lessons. Glenn always made them fun and enjoyable. Even when I made a mistake it was never a bad thing. He made me feel very comfortable when driving and would recommend him to anybody! Lessons were always used to the maximum and it was made so easy to learn everything. We also had a great laugh along the way!!

Autumn O'Brien

My driving instructor was James. I really enjoyed my lessons, I particularly liked learning to parallel park I feel like I picked it up quite quickly because I was taught a very easy way to do it.

The lessons were structured well, everything was explained clearly and I always knew what I was doing. It was really easy at the end of every lesson, I booked the next one. I chose this driving school because the company was advertised very well, the website and Facebook page drew me in.
