The Driving Lessons Guildford Surrey Motorists Recommend

Your lessons will cover everything that you need to know for your test – from reading road signs to mastering manoeuvres. We’re here to turn you into a driver with the knowledge and skills to face any situation on the road, and we’ll take you on lots of different routes to make sure that you get a wide variety of experience.

If there are areas of driving that you are struggling with or getting nervous about, then your instructor will be happy to dedicate time to helping you perfect those and help you to move past any lingering anxieties. They have dual control for your peace of mind too, and will be there to support you and offer advice every step of the way.

If you want to book a few lessons at once, then you will be pleased to know that we offer block booking discounts too. If you go ahead and book a block of ten hours, you’ll save £25 off of the usual price. So not only will you be able to secure lessons at times and places to suit you well ahead of time, but you’ll have some extra cash to spare!

In addition to competitively priced lessons, you can also take advantage of our free study materials to help you pass your theory test. That’s made us the provider of driving lessons Guildford Surrey learner drivers love.

Guildford Driving Instructor Tuition

Along with our lessons for learner drivers, we are also here to help people train as driving instructors in Guildford. If you are confident behind the wheel and know your way around a car as well as the local roads, then teaching people to drive could be the perfect career for you.

From the word go, we’ll show you how to expand your existing knowledge and use that to build the skills that you need to be a successful driving instructor. We’ll give you advice on all aspects of the job, from planning your lessons to reacting when things don’t quite go to plan. With our help, you’ll be able to guide pupils from their first lesson all the way through to passing their test.

We know that everyone has different commitments and availability, and that’s why we have made our driving instructor training fully flexible. You can start your training from whatever location suits you, and finish them where it’s convenient for you too. So no matter where you are based or what your plans for the day are, your training sessions will be able to go ahead. That’s why we are the driving school that instructors all over Guildford recommend!

Flexible Lessons to Suit You

We understand that our learner drivers have busy schedules, and finding the time to squeeze in driving lessons can be hard. All of our driving instructors are self-employed and set their own hours, so if you want to take lessons early in the morning, later on in the evening, or at weekends, you don’t need to worry about any 9-5 schedule.

When you get in touch with us to arrange your driving lessons, tell us what times are good for you. Then we will be able to match you with an instructor who works when you need them to, so you can learn when and where it suits you. You’ll have the same instructor throughout the course of your lessons, and you’ll really benefit from that consistency.

How often should I take lessons?

We recommend that our learner drivers have 1-2 hours of lessons a week, but we appreciate that sometimes time and budget constraints don’t allow for that. Your driving instructor will be able to put together a schedule that works for you, so you can progress with your lessons at a pace that you’re comfortable with.

A lot of people are nervous before their first driving lesson – and that’s totally normal. After all, if you’ve never driven a car before, you’ll have no idea what to expect. During your first lesson, you’ll be introduced to all of the controls, and then taught how to pull away and brake safely. All of our learner cars have dual controls for your peace of mind.

Remember to bring your provisional driving license – your instructor will need to see it before you get started!

The DVSA says that most learner drivers need 45 hours of driving lessons under their belt to take their practical test, along with 22 hours of practice. However, this can vary from person to person, and you and your instructor will know when it’s time for you to take your test. We pride ourselves on our great pass rate, and there’s every chance you could pass your test first time!


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

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.

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
