If you, a family member or a friend are thinking about learning to drive and are looking to book driving lessons in Bolton, I hope the information on this site will help with making your decision.

My driving school, Road Light Driver Training, provides Manual Driving Lessons in Bolton for all age groups

However I also offer many different types of Refresher and Confidence Building Lessons. Also available are Parking, Motorway Lessons, Eco-Safe Lessons, Advanced Driving Lessons and Driver Assessments.

There are many driving instructors in Bolton and quite a few of the large driving schools also operate here too. What should you consider if you are thinking about having driving lessons in Bolton?

If you were choosing a mobile phone, would finding the cheapest one available be your first priority?

I'm sure you would consider more than just its initial cost. I'm confident that 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 proceed"

Granted, finding a driving instructor advertising cheap driving lessons, does seem attractive, at first! 

But choosing quality driving lessons from a highly qualified and skilled driving instructor will get you to test standard faster, and so save you money in the long run.

When you start driving lessons you're taking a major step to independence. You deserve a good teacher. Someone who doesn't want you to be a beginner for long. Someone that will help you to progress quickly but at your own pace.

Always read the reviews left for a driving instructor. Good reviews help you to decide who to choose!

Ensure that you talk personally to the instructor that will be teaching you. Ask them about their experience. What driving or teaching qualifications do they have. Driving instructors are definitely not all the same!

Choose a reputable driving school. Ensure you get the driving instructor that's received excellent reviews.

It can be difficult to choose the right driving school from all who advertise driving lessons in Bolton.

Driving Instructors may all seem to do the same job, but the quality of our lessons and our individual qualifications are definitely not all the same.

As a highly qualified independent driving instructor, (Grade A) I work for myself, and it's me that will be teaching you to drive.

Grade A

Call the instructor and have a chat. Find out all you need to know about having your driving lessons in Bolton, before you book. 

Get the all the information you need to make an informed decision. Ensure you get to talk to the instructor that will teach you, not just to the receptionist or the call handler. This will ensure that you secure driving lessons with the instructor that provides high quality instruction. You don't just want to end up with whoever happens to be available at the time. 

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

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

But in order 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 you need to know how to correct them before they become habitual. This ensures that you will make good progress each and every lesson. 


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.

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. 

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 an instructor, to ensure that you'll be happy to continue 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, make you feel confident? Did they encourage you to ask questions, even two or three times if necessary? Did you feel that you really learned something? Did you enjoy it?

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

Was the lesson good value for money? Are you happy to continue? Such questions allow you to evaluate the lesson & the instructor & will assist you to make a more informed decision.

Choose your driving instructor carefully, take some time to think things through!

If you feel comfortable with your instructor you will progress quickly, and you'll enjoy the learning process. So if you're considering having driving lessons in Bolton with me, call me first, I'm more than happy chat and answer any questions you might have, before you make your decision.

Some driving schools post many positive reviews!

But they don't always say tell you which instructor got those positive reviews. Will you be learning to drive with the instructor that merits those reviews, or just the one who currently has space in the diary?

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.

Another Bolton Driving Lessons 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!!
