Bolton Driving Lessons with Ian Graham Road Light Driver Training

My name is Ian Graham and I'm a D.V.S.A. Approved Driving Instructor (Grade A)

I'm a fully independant driving instructor. I'm based in Bolton Lancs. I work for myself so I have to ensure that the quality of my driving lessons are second to none. 

My pupils tell me that I'm a patient, calm, and friendly driving instructor. I hope that you'll agree.

 I endeavour to make all of my driving lessons really productive as enjoyable as possible.

As a conscientious driving instructor, I keep up to date with the latest teaching methods and advances in driving technology. 

Over the years I have built a solid reputation for excellence in my teaching, and the quality of my driver training. Driving lessons in Bolton with me will be of high quality, relevant, progressive, and enjoyable.

I am fully committed to engaging in continual professional development (CPD).  All of my driving lessons are properly structured with a set goal agreed with you, as to what we are aiming to achieve during each driving lesson. Once we have agreed a learning topic we then agree how we will work on it together, so that you learn both theory and driving skills.

As well as teaching learner drivers, I offer r efresher lessons,  confidence building lessons, parking, advanced, eco-safe and motorway driving lessons, all of which can be conducted in your own car, be it manual or automatic transmission.

In addition to being a grade A qualified driving instructor, I hold a RoSPA GOLD & an I.A.M F1RST in advanced driving.


A RoSPA GOLD is the highest advanced driving qualification available to a civilian driver.

Awarded in recognition of excellence during the I.A.M advanced driving test.

I'm also a full member of the National Joint Council Of Driving Instructors.

If you choose to have your driving lessons in Bolton with me, you can be assured that you will receive quality training, from a full time, professional driving instructor.

I hold an NVQ, in Customer Service and I'm a Level 3 QCF Assessor. 

I use a coaching style of teaching during lessons, to encourage my pupils to think and work out how to deal with problems for themselves.

Adopting a coaching style helps you to quickly build confidence, and ensures faster progress towards becoming a safe and independent driver.


However full assistance is provided as required to help guide you to a positive, and successful outcome. I aim to transfer responsibility quickly to my pupils to ensure that , they become independent in their thinking, planning and driving as soon as possible.

This is a real advantage to you on test day, as this is exactly what you will need to do, in order to pass the driving test.


It also builds confidence and reduces stress. But don't just to take my word for it!

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

It's a high quality vehicle that you will find easy to drive and enjoyable to learn in. It has a high ride height which helps with visibility and confidence.


This is the car that you will use during all of your driving lessons in Bolton with me.

Please note that I offer Only Manual Driving Lessons for Learner Drivers.

The car is fitted with many useful technologies. It has both "Stop Start Control", and a fully "Automatic Handbrake"  along with front and rear parking aids, and Satellite Navigation.

My car is also equipped with HD Video Cameras. These are fitted to both the front & rear screens, and enable me to show you actual footage of your own driving, as a teaching aid during your lessons.

This helps you work out more easily what improvements you might need to make during your driving lessons, but importantly allows me to demonstrate what things went well, and where things need improvement or correction.

Pupils love these training aids, they help make the learning process more enjoyable and facilitate a faster route to driving test success. 

Getting the right help to assist you to develop into a safe driver is vitally important, wether you are new to driving or not.

My driving school Road Light Driver Training is Bolton based. So during your driving lessons you will be driving on the roads that you will encounter during your driving test.

You will be taught to confidently handle major junctions, crossroads, roundabouts, and crossings etc. You will drive in Bolton town centre, on roads such as Deansgate and Bradshawgate, but you will also experience driving on faster roads like, Beaumont Rd, the A6 and dual carriageways like the A666 St Peters Way.


During your lessons you will get a good overall grounding in driving on as many roads in and around the Bolton area as possible. 

Very soon you too will be fully competent, ready for your driving test and looking forward to the congratulations of family and friends.

Driving instructors, their training vehicles & the quality of their driving lessons are not all the same. Choose your instructor carefully.

I use an iPad extensively during lessons too. It's a really useful aid to faster learning.


It's much quicker and more accurate than drawing with pencil and paper, and it cuts down on the time I need to spend at the side of the road explaining things.

During driving lessons I also make use many driving Apps, electronic programs, road layouts, maps, illustrations, as well as working models and videos.


These all help you to understand clearly the different things that you might encounter in and around the Bolton area, whilst you are learning to drive.


Using the iPad I can draw on a photograph of a road you are about to drive, to explain things like the the road positioning & signalling you will need. This really helps to aid understanding. I also use purpose built models to help explain things like how the clutch works, and how to quickly master the steering and manoeuvring of a car.

Why not take the time to view my pupil reviews page and read reviews from pupils who have already taken their driving lessons in Bolton with me, and have passed their driving test.

All of my driving lessons in Bolton are reviewed and independently verified on FreeIndex and on Google.
