If would like to read about us in more detail, then here is the information on why YOU need to choose 1st 4 Driving as your driving school for driving lessons.

You need a driving school in your area that you can trust, and one that is backed by strong foundations and correct and proper teaching, which is not often found in most other driving schools. You need to know that the driving school you choose will get you through your driving test at a pace to suit you and not waste your valuable money and time. Driving lesson price can not necessarily guarantee all this.

While it’s true that the most expensive is not necessarily the best, it’s probably true that the cheapest won’t be. Buying driving lessons in Portsmouth is a life skill and something that shouldn’t be chosen by picking the cheapest driving lessons around. Your driving instructor needs to be honest and needs get you to where you want to be in a time frame that suits you. Therefore, what you want is the independence of driving on your own as soon as possible and as cheaply as possible. That’s where we come in.

  • 1st 4 Driving was established in 2000 and incorporated in 2005, so you know we’re here to stay for you.
  • We get you on the road to independence quicker with our proven systems.
  • While not the cheapest initially, we will save you £££s in the long run by reducing the overall amount of lessons you take.
  • Our high first-time pass rate ensures you don’t waste money on extra driving tests and driving lessons in Hastings.
  • Nobody really wants driving lessons or driving tests, you want to be driving your own car independently. That’s what we can do for YOU!

We pride ourselves on our reviews!

driving lessons in southamptonMike has been a great driving instructor. I was very nervous at the start of learning to drive, Mike helped build my confidence and he was patient when things went a bit wrong. He always made sure I understood what he was explaining and that I wasn’t just agreeing with what he said.

Learning with Mike was something I looked forward to. What I really liked about learning with Mike was that he didn’t just teach me how to pass my test and drive on test routes, he taught me to drive and be able to cope with lots of different situations. He was happy to sit in the car through my test at my request. I would highly recommend Mike as an instructor.

  • We don’t do generic teaching. Learning with us will be focused around YOU and how you need to learn.

Different types of driving lessons in Bodmin

  • Complete beginner? No problem!

Most of our new pupils are complete beginners, and that’s great! Our driving instructors are very experienced in getting people from the complete beginner stage to passing and having their own independence.

  • Had a few tries with Mum and Dad? Ok!

It’s quite common that pupils have had a few sessions with their parents or an older sibling before they come to us. On your first lesson, your instructor will gauge your progress and we’ll get those bad habits out of you!

  • Come from another school? You’re welcome with us!

We get a lot of phone calls from people who have had bad tuition with another driving school or instructor (we’ve heard some real horror stories). Rest assured, 1st 4 Driving’s instructors never ‘shout’ or be rude to you. Remember, these are your driving lessons and the aim of the game here is to get you on the road on your own.

  • Want to get back into driving? Great!

Perhaps you passed years ago, or you stopped learning for whatever reason, but you want to get back into learning. We can accommodate mature students and also refresher lessons for those who want to gain a bit more confidence on the roads. Some people need these after a break in driving or after a health problem to get them back into driving.

Bodmin’s Test Centre
