There are many driving instructors in Bolton and quite a few driving schools! 

What should you consider when choosing your own driving lessons in Bolton?

If you were choosing a mobile phone, I'm sure finding the cheapest one wouldn't be your top priority?

I'm sure you would consider its manufacturer, its build quality, it's reliability, its features, and reviews on its performance etc? So choosing driving lessons in Bolton, based on finding the cheapest driving instructor or driving school, isn't the right way to go!

However finding a driving instructor that advertises cheap driving lessons, does seem attractive, at first!

Learning to drive should be an enjoyable experience.

However ending up with the wrong driving instructor, or one that isn't particularly good at explaining things in the way that you need them explaining, will hinder your progress. No one wants to end up with unproductive and unenjoyable driving lessons.  

My suggestion is not to book a complete course of driving lessons to start with.

Your money may not be refundable if you decide that your instructor and you don't work together very well. Try having just one driving lesson with the instructor you have chosen, to ensure that you'll be happy to continue your lessons, before block booking.


When you have your first lesson, take careful note of how it felt for you. 

Did the driving instructor put you at ease? Did they make you feel confident? Did they encourage you to ask questions? Did you feel comfortable asking question, even two or three times if necessary? Did you feel that you really learned something during the lesson? Did you enjoy it? Was the lesson value for money? Would you like to continue?

Did your instructor point out clearly the objectives for your next lesson?  

Asking such questions allows you to evaluate the lesson and the instructor and assist you to make a more informed decision.

So if you are considering having any type of driving lessons in Bolton, call the instructor early to have a chat.

quality driving instructor will always be busy and in demand. Get the all the information you need to make an informed decision. Ensure you get to chat with the instructor that will teach you to drive, not just to the receptionist or the call handler. This will ensure that you have the best chance of securing a place with an instructor that offers high quality driving instruction. You don't want to just end up with whoever happens to be available at the time. 

Some driving schools post many positive reviews, but don't always say which  instructor got those positive reviews.

All of my driving lessons in Bolton are conducted in my Audi Q2 pictured.

We all make mistakes when we learn a new skill. Learning to drive is no different. 

But to make good progress during your driving lessons, you need to know exactly what the mistakes were, and the reasons you made them, and then, how to correct them before they become habitual. This ensures that you will make good progress each and every lesson. 


When you learn to drive don't  expect to get everything right at first. It takes time. Mistakes are just  part of learning.
When learning, you need to feel that you can make mistakes without being made to feel uncomfortable or even embarrassed. Your driving instructor knows that you will make mistakes. But how they deal with them will be very important to you if you are to make good progress during your driving lessons.

A Bolton Driving Lessons Review From Natalie Flinn 

When I turned 17, I wasn’t someone who was particularly excited to start learning to drive; for me, it was more a skill of convenience, rather than of pleasure. However, having lessons with Ian completely changed my outlook on driving, and I very much enjoy it now. I would strongly recommend Ian to anyone looking to learn to drive in Bolton.

He is patient, explains things with clarity and is always early to lessons. One feature of my driving lessons I particularly liked, was the learning log at the end of each drive. This enabled me to learn faster and more effectively because I had clear goals to work on, as well as praising feedback from my prior lesson, which I could read over and refresh myself with before the next lesson.


The evaluation of each lesson afterwards was very useful and Ian was particularly good with certain phrasing and little tricks to remember what to work on. During my actual lessons, I always felt confident and comfortable enough to ask questions, as Ian was not only very understanding and always listened to what I had to say, but also used various models which allowed me to visualise things easier. I wanted to pass my test fairly quickly (and first time), and Ian allowed me to do this, alongside teaching me to be a safe and smart driver. I couldn’t thank him enough and would advocate Ian and his teaching to anyone looking for driving lessons in Bolton.

Bolton Driving Lessons - A review from Darryl Connell

"Ian is a fantastic instructor very friendly and a pleasure to learn from. He teaches to the highest possible standard. Highly, highly recommended!

He always turned up on time, was never late and never let me down. Ian is very understanding and easy to get on with too.


He used modern equipment and techniques which helped even more. Ian's 'reflective log' system is really great and really helped me. Had a blast on my driving lessons in Bolton. Ian makes the whole process very enjoyable.


I could go on and on, you are in great hands when you train with Ian. 10 out of 10! So happy to say that I passed my driving test first time today!!
