Why should I choose Nayland Driving School in Felixstowe?

We operate safely and will teach you to drive in a safe and efficient way. We operate honestly and want to see you reach your test and pass! We also provide all students with free study material for their theory test – so we’re here to help you in the most beneficial ways possible.

How long will it take for me to learn to drive?

This really depends on the individual, as well as how often you have driving lessons and your own determination. The DVSA says it takes an average of 45 hours of lessons to reach test level, and 22 hours of practising. Nayland Driving School is one of the driving schools in Felixstowe who also offer intensive courses if you are aiming to pass in a shorter amount of time.

If you’re a beginner, we offer your first two hours for £27, from then on it is £27 for a manual and £27 for an automatic one-hour lesson. We recommend you book a two-hour lesson to get the most out of your lesson, this is £54 for a manual car and £54 for an automatic. If you book in a 10-hour block, you can benefit from a saving of £15.

This really depends on you, if you learn manual you will be able to drive both manual and automatic cars, but if you learn automatic then you will only be permitted to drive an automatic car. However, some people do find gears difficult and prefer to drive an automatic – it really is up to the individual! Automatic cars are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and it is becoming a choice for more learners. Just be aware, you will still need an understanding of a manual car for your theory test!


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
