My driving school provides Manual Driving Lessons in Bolton.

Listed in the "Three Best Rated" Driving Schools in Bolton for the last 5 years. I offer a wide range of driving lessons to support students from all backgrounds and levels to achieve their personal driving goals.

Since founding Road Light Driver Training, I've had the opportunity to help many different students to acquire their foundational driving skills, and then to develop these skills during their driving lessons so that they quickly progress and feel confident enough to pass their own driving test.

I also provide Refresher, Parking, Confidence Building and Eco-Safe driving lessons, Motorway Tuition and Advanced Driver Training.

So if you, a family member or a friend are thinking about booking driving lessons in Bolton, I hope that the information here will help with your decision, because driving lessons in Bolton are not all the same!

There are many independent driving instructors in Bolton and quite a number of multi car driving schools operate here. What should you think about, before calling to book your driving lessons?

Should finding the cheapest driving lessons in Bolton be your priority?

Think about this first, if you were going to purchase a Mobile Phone or a Hi-fi System, or maybe even a Car, would you only look for the cheapest ones available? I'm confident that you would more likely weigh up other factors. I'm sure you would think carefully about the manufacturer, their build quality, product reliability, design and features etc. Most likely you would also read some product reviews? Apply the same thoughts to choosing a driving instructor. Choosing driving lessons in Bolton, based only on finding the cheapest instructor or driving school in Bolton, really isn't the right way to choose

Finding a driving instructor that offers "cheap driving lesson in Bolton" does seem very attractive!

But will "cheap driving lessons" prove to be real value for your money?

Choosing quality driving lessons from a more highly qualified, skilled driving instructor, is better value for your money. A skilled driving instructor will help you reach the driving test standard much quicker than a poor teacher, and so you will spend a lot less money in the long run.

Please take some time to read my Pupil Reviews to find out what others have said about the quality of my teaching, or click About Me to find out about my experience and qualifications.

Reading reviews that have been left for a driving instructor will really help you make a wise choice!

If reviews are not available, think about why they are not? Ensure that you talk personally to the driving instructor that will be teaching you. Doing they seem friendly? Do they make you feel comfortable? Are you going to enjoy driving lessons with them? Ask about their experience and their driving and teaching qualifications! Driving instructors are definitely not all the same!

Choose a reputable driving school & ensure you're getting the driving instructor with the excellent reviews.

It's difficult to choose the right driving school from all the driving instructors that advertise driving lessons in Bolton.

During all of your driving lessons in Bolton, you will be driving 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.
During your driving lessons, 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 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 and prolong your 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 choose, to ensure you'll be happy to continue driving lessons with them.


When you have your first driving 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 the driving instructor give you clear objectives at the start of the lesson?  

Was the lessons good value for money? Are you happy to continue? Such questions allow you to evaluate the lesson & the driving 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 your driving lessons in Bolton with me, call me, I'm more than happy to have a chat and answer any questions you might have, before you make your final decision.

Some driving schools in Bolton post many positive driving lessons 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?

Bolton Driving Lessons - A review from student 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.

Learning to drive on Motorways is now lawful for learner drivers when they are accompanied by a fully qualified driving instructor. More information about taking Motorway Driving Lessons in Bolton.
