Driving lessons Preston

Are you ready to start your driving lessons?

We have one simple idea, our driving instructor will give you the best driving lessons possible so you pass your practical driving test as quickly as possible whilst being a safe driver. Our no-nonsense approach means you save time and money, you love this and tell all of your friends to use our driving school – it’s worked for nearly 20 years and we know it will work for many years more!

What happens on your first driving lesson?

On your first lesson your driving instructor will do a few things, first your instructor will check your provisional driving licence and do an eyesight check. After the checks we will have a chat about any driving history you have, have you passed your theory test etc, from there we will take you to a suitable area and thats where you start learning!

Should I take a driving course?

If you want to pass your driving test quickly then you may be interested in taking an intensive driving course. Whilst these ‘crash courses’ may get you through your driving test quicker, they aren’t always the right choice. If you have passed your theory test and want to discuss your options for passing quickly – give us a call!

Do you offer automatic driving lessons Preston?

At the moment we only offer manual cars. We are constantly recruiting new driving instructors across Preston, if you want an automatic driving lesson then please contact us to check current availability.

Can you help me pass my theory test?

All of our learners get free Theory Test pro software. This allows us to monitor your progress and give you help along the way – you’re twice as likely to pass you hazard perception & theory test with Theory Test Pro!

Should I have manual or automatic lessons in Preston?

Learning to drive in an automatic is quite popular at the moment but not all driving schools tell you about restrictions on your driving licence – we prefer to be completely clear!

If you pass in a manual car then you are free to drive both manual and automatic cars. If you pass in an automatic car then you are restricted to just driving automatics. This might not be an issue for you but some people like the freedom to chose.

Are we the best driving school in Preston?

We can claim to have the highest pass rate, the friendliest driving instructors or the secret formula to make you instantly pass your driving test, but we prefer to show you how good we are! Nobody knows who has the highest pass rate, there isn’t any resource for us to find out and any driving school which claims this is telling lies! Instead, every week we post up our pass photos on social media and you can see the hundreds of 5* reviews our driving instructors get! We let you make your own mind up on how good we are! If your looking for driving lessons in Preston – then give us a call on 0800 9 70 40 30

When you’re a kid you’re told not to get into a car with a stranger – we completely agree! Learning to drive can be daunting enough so we want to make it as easy as possible for you. Most of our instructors have online profiles in ‘Our Instructors‘ page – why not pop along and see what driving instructors we have in Preston!

Preston Driving Lesson Reviews

Some of our reviews we have received after people have learnt to drive with us in Preston

Passed my test today, Huge thanks to my instructor Mike for his patience and hard work, he is hands down an amazing instructor! Thank you for having confidence and patience in me! If anyone asks I will always recommend!!!


Passed today With Liam, had him for most of this year now with things getting delayed with COVID twice but he was always great with me had a laugh but also made sure he was teaching me the right things and In ways that I would understand and catered to my learning style couldn’t recommend Liam and the Driving Academy enough. Thanks Again Liam mate👍🏼


Would highly recommend, especially instructor Mike. He helped me since June with weekly lessons addressing any issues I was having until I was fully confident enough for my test, which I passed yesterday. If you want a calm, experienced and encouraging instructor he’s the man for you. Cheers Mike 🚗


Preston Driving Lesson FAQ's

Have a question? Want a quick answer? The most common driivng lesson FAQ's can be found below!

How do I book my first driving lesson in Preston

If you have your provisional driving license then just give us a call or fill your details in on our callback form. A member of our team will answer any questions you have and pass your details over to one of our instructors.

What car will I learn to drive in?

We have a good variety of cars from super-mini’s to large SUV’s. Typically expect your lessons to happen in a Ford Fiesta / Vauxhall Corsa sized car. If you have any special requirements then feel free to ask us!

How many driving lessons will I need?

The UK average is 47 driving lessons and 22 hours of private practice before your driving test, but everyone is different. We’ve saw people pass in as little as 10 hours and others take longer. After your first few driving lessons your driving instructor will be able to give you an idea roughly how many lessons you will need.

What test do I need to take?

There are 3 tests you need to take to gain your full driving license. The first 2 tests are taken together, these are the theory test and the hazard perception test. You have to pass them both together. The final test is your practical driving test and this must be passed within 2 years of passing your first 2 tests.

How long does it take to learn to drive?

This is down to you. We see two types of learners, those committed to learning and taking regular weekly lessons, and those who aren’t too bothered and will cancel a lesson and then re-arrange for 2-3 weeks time. You can pass as quickly as you want, but if you don’t have the dedication or motivation to pass you can spend months trying to get your driving license.

How long are your driving lessons?

Our driving lessons all last 1 hour, but you can take them in 60/90/120/180 minute sessions if you prefer - speak to your driving instructor about your options if you want to do longer lessons. Note - some cheaper driving school only offer 50 minute driving lessons.

What is a provisional license?

You need to apply for a provisional driving license before you can start driving lessons. Without a provisional license you are not insured for driving on the road - we will ask to see your provisional on your first lesson.

Can’t I just learn with my Mum / Dad / Friend / Sister / Uncle??

Yes you can, however the person teaching you must meet certain criteria (Over 21, Have had a full license for over 3 years are the basic requirements) you must then also make sure the car is roadworthy, fully insured for a leaner driver and displaying the legal L plates. The most important thing is the person teaching / supervising you needs to know what is expected for your driving test and teach you correctly. If you want to speak to your driving instructor and ask for some advice.
