Evening Driving Lessons

Now that the clocks have been adjusted, evenings are becoming lighter and we start moving into spring and summer, a lot or people are thinking of having driving lessons (I’ve had at least 20 requests for driving lessons in the last month).

Every year, between April and September, I offer extra slots for driving lessons in the evening (Monday to Friday).  Evening driving lessons can be particularly useful for people who work and are not able to have lessons during the day. In addition, roads are much quieter between 7-9pm which makes it much easier to find suitable areas to learn.

To maximise the learning time available during the spring and summer time,  I generally only provide two hour lessons in the evening (6.30-8.30 or 7-9pm).  I have already taken a booking for regular lessons on Monday, Tuesday and Friday evenings but still have slots available on Wednesday and Thursday. So, if you are thinking of having evening driving lessons, are currently considering me as your driving instructor and are available on Wednesday or Thursday evening, please complete the contact form or call me today on 0798 011 1234 (or send an SMS) to discuss your requirements in more detail. Please note that while the slots are on a “first come first serve” basis, I am currently focusing on learners who live in the NG7, NG8 and NG9 Postcode areas.

First Time Pass for Maddy at Beeston

Well done Maddy on passing your driving test today, at Beeston, on your first attempt. It was great to sit in the back of the car and witness a very comfortable and confident drive (and also to see your reaction on hearing the news that you’d passed!). Given that you moved away from Nottingham midway through your driving lessons,  I am flattered that you chose to commute to Nottingham in order to continue having regular driving lessons with me (rather than appointing a new driving instructor in your new home area).  Having been a complete beginner while studying in Nottingham, I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of your life at such a key time (through your final year at university until your graduation and your first job after Uni life).  I will miss your lessons but look forward to seeing you soon for a Pass Plus course.

Thank you Martin for all the support you’ve given me through my driving lessons. I wasn’t the most confident of starters but you’ve built my confidence, my skills, my awareness, but most of all my enjoyment of driving. I’ve learnt a lot while driving with you, and it’s been an absolute delight to be able to stay with you even when I moved from Nottingham to Leicester – it was definitely the right choice, I wouldn’t have wanted to learn with another instructor. It’s been a tough final year at uni and beyond, but I’ve always looked forward to my lessons and I’ll be sorry to have to end them. You are calm, understanding and so considerate in your approach to teaching. Thank you for everything and I am looking forward to my pass plus lessons in the future!! Maddy x

Najma Passes at Beeston Test Centre

Congratulations Najma on passing your driving test today at Beeston Test Centre with only 2 minor driving faults!  While you only had a few lessons with me, to help you prepare for your test, I’m pleased that I was able to support you to a successful outcome. For the second month running, one of my learners passed their test on Friday 13th!

Update on Postcode Areas Covered

With most of my current learners living in the Nottingham Postcodes of NG7, NG8 and NG9, this is generally where I provide driving lessons for learners (although I also currently have learners who live in NG1 and NG5). Depending on my current availability and your circumstances, I am willing to consider new pupils in parts of NG2 and NG16 as well.  However, for people wanting a Pass Plus course or wanting some refresher lessons, I am happy to cover anywhere within the NG1-NG16 Postcodes.

As my coverage can change from time to time,  please do read the locations page of my website to ensure that I cover the part of Nottingham that you live before contacting me. Over the last month, I’ve had nearly a dozen enquiries for driving lessons from people wanting lessons in areas of Nottingham that I simply don’t cover (with at least half of those enquiries from people living in NG3 and NG4 Postcodes). To be clear, because of the distance from my usual working area, I do not currently provide driving lessons for learners living in NG3, NG4 or NG6.
