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.

Dylan gilheanney had his first off road lesson today

Well done to Dylan Gilheanney.
Dylan had his first ever driving lesson with his instructor John Wardle at the New Starters Off road site in. Carlisle. Dylan learned all about the car controls and how to move off and stop correctly. He then worked hard to improve his steering and how to change gears up and down the gearbox. Dylan then drove around the road system on site doing left and right turns and junctions, and before the end of the lesson he learned good clutch control.
Dylan is returning for more lessons before he turns 17 in a few months.
