Driving Lessons in Bolton With Nayland Driving School

So, do you think you’re ready to take the wheel and start your driving journey with us? If the answer is yes, please get in touch with us today on 0800 211 8717 or book online. Our prices start from just £29 an hour, and we have various block-booking offers available too!


How do I study for my theory test?

We offer study materials for your theory test when you sign up to our driving school in Bolton. It is up to you to study in your own time and book your test, you will need to pass your theory test before you can book your practical test. Both can be booked via the gov.uk website, a theory test costs £23 and a practical test is £62.

You will need a provisional license before you begin driving lessons, which will need to be bought to your first lesson to show your instructor. It is best to allow three weeks for it to arrive and you will need it on you for your theory and provisional test. Your first provisional license will cost £34 if you do it online or £43 if applying by post. You’ll need an identity document unless you have a UK biometric passport, address for the last 3 years and your national insurance number. You must also be able to read a number plate from 20 metres away or you must wear glasses if you need them.

The regularity of your driving lessons really depends on your availability and the availability of your instructor, we recommend booking a block of lessons together to ensure you can have regular lessons set up with your instructor. Ideally, we would suggest having lessons on a weekly basis to allow you to progress well, but this is not essential. Alternatively, you can book an intensive course if you would like to pass in a quicker time frame, we provide these from £364 for 10 hours across 2 days. Beforehand, you will need to have a driving assessment to determine your ability and the right course for you.

Again, this depends on you and how regular your lessons are. We will get you to test level and then it is down to how confident you feel to take your test. The DVSA say the average is 45 hours of lessons and 22 hours of practise, but it can be less or more, everyone is different and learns in their own time. We aim to get you there as soon as we can in a safe and responsible way, working on any areas you have difficulty with.


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

Alen Thomas

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

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

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.

Peter Callaghan

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! 🙂

Amy Cowlin

Massive thanks to Suzanne! Amazing instructor! Helped to boost my confidence and pass my test quickly! Highly recommend!
