Wigan Driving Lesson Reviews

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

Highly recommend, had a couple of issues with previous driving instructors and these guys sorted everything out as quickly as possible. Big thanks to Ste my instructor, made me feel at ease straight away and brilliant teacher 👍🏼 Thank you so much!


I had lessons off James in St Helens. I had a bad experience years ago so was very nervous this time around. James made me feel at ease from day one, pushed me, encouraged me, was patient, went above an beyond to help me pass. everything you could want in an instructor. Thanks!!!


Stephen W was my Driving Instructor. He was an amazing teacher, I came to him in pretty poor shape and he completely turned my drive around in four weeks. Ive just passed my test first time and got great feedback from the Examiner. If you are looking for a patient, competent and forward thinking Driving Instructor, look no further, his time was worth every penny. He has a great balance between being a professional, and someone you can relax with, which for me was excellent to getting me on my way to passing my test. Anyone who lets me know that they are gonna start taking lessons, i'll be sending them over to him.


Wigan 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 Wigan

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.
