Coronavirus Update

Due to the current position with the Coronavirus, New Starters instructors has stopped driving lessons - the health of our instructors and pupils are our main concern always.

Can I personally say a big thank you to everyone connected with New Starters Driving School, instructors and pupils alike, without you we would not be as successful as we are. We will be back as of the 4th July depending on the situation - Bigger and stronger than ever! Looking forward to seeing you all then, if anyone has any queries don't hesitate to call 01228 546688.

Lesson Information

With New Starters Driving School, you will be taught almost every aspect of driving from Basic Controls to Parallel Parking, in a safe friendly professional and fun environment.  

We have a refreshly new way of teaching people to drive, in that no two lessons are ever the same, as we try to cover a new subject each time. We firmly believe that we can make you a safe driver for life.

Through out your syllabus, the same qualified driving instructor will teach you how to drive in our dual controlled car.

We offer a free test booking service for Practical tests

Once you have passed your test, you can further your driving experience with a funded Pass Plus course.
