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 on you first pre-learner lesson on our site in houghton carlisle

Congratulations to Alycia Smith who had her first driving lesson today with Kenny at the New Starters off road site in Carlisle. Alycia learned how to safely move off and stop, as well as changing gear and dealing with junctions. Despite thinking she was coming to the site for her brother, she handled the situation well and was driving very nicely for her first time. Good luck for future lessons!"
