Coronavirus Update

Due to the current position with the Coronavirus, New Starters instructors will stop driving lessons as soon as possible - 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 1st June 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.

Bethany passed first time with New starters driving school

Congratulations to Bethany Duffy for passing her driving test today at her first attempt in Carlisle. Beth started off her driving on our off road site in Houghton, and with the basics mastered, moved out onto the roads with confidence, which has led to her successfully getting through her test. Your wee car can now start to get you to school, and take your turn at getting you to dance class. Well done from Kenny and all of us at New Starters Driving School!!
