City Driving Academy provides structured driving lessons to suit all ages and abilities, offering clear instruction and guidance from being a beginner right through to refresher lessons, motorways and pass plus.

We recommend you take at least an hour and a half of driving lessons per week as this has been shown to be the best way to learn to drive. A more intensive course is available to those of you who wish to pass fast and get behind the wheel of your own car as soon as possible.

So driving lessons are currently available in a manual, diesel Toyota Yaris, with dual-controls and air-con. You will always be with a fully qualified and experienced driving instructor and we always make sure that driving lessons are on a 1:1 basis, no car-sharing and for the full lesson time.

We also offer mock driving tests to get you test ready  as well as free support and advice for your Theory and Hazard Perception Test.

Lesson fees must be paid at the beginning of each lesson, either by cash or cheque.

What to expect from your driving lessons

  • A relaxed atmosphere with a skilled and professional driving instructor
  • 1:1 tuition for the full 1 1/2 hour or 2 hour session – strictly no car sharing
  • The New Toyota Yaris with dual-controls and air-con
  • Competitive prices and discounts
  • Free local pick up
  • Free help and advice for Theory and Hazard Perception Test
  • Personal record book and mock driving tests to monitor progress

What must I do before I start learning to drive?

Make sure you have a valid provisional driving licence (the D1 form can be obtained from the Post Office) and this must be presented to your driving instructor on your first lesson otherwise your lesson will be cancelled.
Make sure you are in good health and, if on any medication, please contact your doctor to ensure that you are allowed to drive.
Make sure you get your eyesight checked out. On your first lesson your driving instructor will ask you to read a number plate from 20.5m (with glasses if needed) as this is the legal requirement to drive.
