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.

Well done Sophie on your first off road driving lesson

Well done to Sophie Howatson who had her first driving lesson today at New Starters off road site in Carlisle with Kenny. Sophie done well to manage to dodge all the rabbits today, and by the end of the session, she had the grasp of moving off and stopping, as well as moving through the gears and steering. Best of luck to you, you might yet get to drive Mum's car
