Start 2023 the Right Way by Learning to Drive


Nayland Driving School Are Here to Help

If you are looking to learn to drive, our Colchester driving school is here to help you succeed. Here is how learning to drive in 2023 could benefit you:

Gain your freedom

Learning to drive is a ticket to freedom. You will not have to rely on public transport anymore, meaning that you won’t have to factor things like delays and strikes into your travel plans. You will also not have to rely on friends and family members who can drive to get you from A to B. Having your own car will allow you to make plans well in advance and be spontaneous. You will have the complete freedom to go where you want and when you want to!

Improve your career prospects

Obtaining your driver’s licence can boost your career prospects too. How often have you looked at a job listing to see that applicants need to have a car, or at the very least be able to drive one? Even if a job doesn’t ask for it explicitly, being able to drive can set a candidate apart from their equally qualified fellow applicants. Carpooling is becoming increasingly common in workplaces too, so having your own vehicle will allow you to join in with your colleagues.

You can learn at any age

A lot of people assume that you have to be young in order to learn to drive – but it doesn’t matter how old you are! Here at Nayland Driving School, we teach learner drivers of all ages. While we do guide a lot of younger people to success, we have seen a larger number of older learner drivers in recent years. Whether you failed a test when you were younger and lost your confidence, or just never got around to learning until now, a licence is still within reach for you!

Don’t let the weather put you off!

Many people want to learn to drive in 2023 but are intending to put it off until later in the year so that they can do so in easier weather conditions. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t book a lesson right now though! The earlier you face challenging weather such as rain, wind, snow, and ice, the more time you will have to gain skill and confidence in those conditions. Your instructor will be there with you every step of the way too, so you will be able to find your feet safely.

I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Harriet Osborn Davies

Mikolaj Witkowski

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂
