Alice Ward - Sturminster Newton

My driving instructor really helped build my confidence as my instructor was so lovely and was really helpful I really enjoyed each lesson, I even got to listen to music quietly to help me relax and James was flexible with my lessons, even with my test they managed to find me a test date quickly.

Overall, i am really happy with the whole process and I had fun whilst doing it.

Start your driving lessons today with your local Premier Driving School in Sturminster Newton

We currently help over 800 customers every single week on their journey to independence and freedom with local driving lessons in Sturminster Newton and the surrounding area. Pre-Covid in 2019 our local team helped 501 people to pass their driving test and we have an amazing collection of over 900 customer reviews.

Its not surprising that most people you speak to will tell you that all driving instructors are the same. But from our experience after helping hundreds of customers pass their driving test this simply isnt true. The majority of our customers come to us through recomendations from previous happy customers that are more than happy to send their friends and family in our direction. But we also get quite a few customers that have tried other driving instructors first before changing to a member of our driving school team.

Across the UK 30% of all learners will change their driving instructors before ever taking a driving test, and the average first time driving test pass is just 44%, thats not very high and should highlight the fact that there can be some real substandard driving tuition available in your local area.

All your driving lessons in Sturminster Newton will be structured in a way that allow you to progress at your own pace. Your driving instructor will recap with you at the beginning and end of each driving lesson and with your input set achievable goal for each lesson.

Manual Driving Lessons

With our weekly driving lessons your instructor will be happy to give you regular times or different times and days each week to suit your availability. You can start your driving lessons from home, work, school or college as long as it is pre arranged with your instructor before hand. 

All of your driving lessons will be for a minimum of 2 hours at a time, this will reduce the time it takes you to reach the driving test standard and your overall cost of learning to drive.


Our team of local driving instructor are more than happy to take pupils to Yeovil. Dorchester or Salisbury driving test centres or even further afield if required.

Automatic Driving Lessons

Make learning to drive a relaxing pleasure with our team of Automatic Driving Instructors. We have 4 local driving instructors offering Automatic Driving Lessons across North Dorset. These can be as either weekly driving lessons or as one of our Automatic Intensive Driving Courses.

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.

Intensive Driving Courses

Why wait month to pass your driving test, when you can pass your driving test quickly and safely with one of our Intensive Driving Courses in Sturminster Newton. 

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 in Sturminster Newton can save you money on the cost of learning to drive.

These type of intensive 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.

Intensive Driving Courses Sturminster Newton

Before we can book your practical driving test at one of the local driving test centres, or your intensive driving course with one of our local driving instructors, 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.

Call our customer services team on

for more details or take a look at our One Week Intensive Driving Course page. You might be able to pass your driving test in time for the weekend. 

Intensive Courses in Sturminster Newton are available in both Manual and Automatic cars.

PRE-17 Driving Lessons (12+)

If you are eager to learn to drive but you havent turned 17 yet then you may be interested in our Under 17 Driving Lessons that are held once a month at Henstridge Airfield or The Royal Bath & West Showground. 

These under 17 driving sessions have proved very popular and are a great way of getting a head start with your driving and have also been proven to help reduce road traffic accidents among 17 year old drivers that first attended under 17 driving sessions such as ours.

The Under 17's driving sessions are open to anyone aged 12+ that meet our minimum height of 4ft 8ins and are all one to one with qualified driving instructors using dual controlled cars.

Please see our under 17s driving lesson pages for more details on both these events.

I passed my test today, my instructor Kerry Cade is the best instructor I've come across. She has a very good student-tutor connection and is very understanding. I was very lucky to be her student. Is a pleasure to learn with her. Thank you.

I passed my test first time with James and I couldn't of done it without him. I was really nervous at first but he helped to build my confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to drive.

Without 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, giggliy and a memory I plan to keep forever.

Thank you James
