Well done from your driving instructor Sean and all the team at the Capital Driving School.

What Michael had to say:

“I choose the Capital Driving School because the website caught my eye, especially the customer reviews, when I was looking for an ADI. I initially contacted the driving school via their online contact form. My learning experience was better than I had expected…it was less formal, more encouragement of thinking and understanding. My instructors teaching methods were excellent, points were well explained, praise and constructive critique in equal amounts and at appropriate times. I would certainly recommend this driving school to others because they were flexible, fair and had a good teaching style. I passed first time with no minors….what more could you want!

Yet another fantastic result.

Well done from your driving instructor Steve and all the team at the Capital Driving School.

What Callum had to say:

“I choose the Capital Driving School because they offered an intensive driving course in Edinburgh that was good value. When I started my driving course I was very rusty but I improved quickly and it was easier than I expected largely due to my driving instructor. His teaching methods were very good and he always gave very clear explanations and instructions and told humorous and relevant anecdotes which made the lesson more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this driving school. I was chuffed to pass with only 2 minor faults after my 20 hour course which followed nearly a 2 year break from driving. Steve did a great job as my instructor and always gave me honest feedback. I’m glad I chose The Capital Driving School.”

From a nervous driver to a pass with only 4 minor faults!

Congratulations from your driving instructor Sean Burns and all the team at the Capital Driving School.

What Sarah had to say:

“I chose the capital driving school as I was wanting to take an intensive driving course to pass my test within a certain time and saw the great reviews and great prices that they offer. I found their website when searching on Google. I had previously had lessons a few years ago and was nervous about starting them again. I had expected it to be stressful and not very fun however I have to say my lessons this time round were much better than I had previously had (with a different driving school). The instructor was very calm and patient. His methods were simple and made sense. He always tried to build my confidence by focusing on the good things about my driving whilst also highlighting what I needed to remember in a nice way. He definitely made me feel at ease and comfortable behind the wheel! I will definitely be recommending this driving school to others . The price is great and the course I took was super. The instructor was excellent and got a very nervous driver to pass! Contact with instructor was prompt too.”

Alistair Stewart, Edinburgh.Alaistair Stewart

Congratulations to Alistair Stewart on passing his driving test at the second attempt at the Currie driving

Alistair needed his licence for his job and the pressure was relieved in the end.

Great result! Well done and safe driving for the future for the future from your driving instructor Sean and all the team at The Capital Driving School.

What Alistair Had To Say:

I choose the Capital Driving School because of the competitive rate, and they were consistently well reviewed when I was researching driving school options online.

I had previously not had a positive experience learning to drive and had put off continuing for five years. Additionally, I have a poor memory and was worried I would not be able to develop the appropriate skills necessary to drive. I found the experience this time around to be carefully tailored to the way I learn and extremely adaptable around my work and personal commitments.

There was never a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’ and I would pass my test and the experience was positive and centred on that ethos. Sean’s approach to driving lessons was always structured. No lesson was random, and was always a part of the wider timetable that we had agreed. His manner was consistently positive, even when I was frustrated at my own inability to master a manoeuvre or remember a process.

Time was never wasted, and Sean was always quick to whittle down problems so they could be worked on and improved. His teaching style was upbeat, logical and focussed on providing the best service to his pupil. Sean Burns and the Capital Driving School provided an excellent service. I sincerely never thought I would be able to drive, and with thanks to Sean I have recently passed my test which was required for a new job.

It will be a pleasure recommending both Sean and the school to friends, colleagues and prospective students.

Joanna O’ Neil, Edinburgh.joannaoneilmuss1st3minor15hrs

Congratulations to Joanna on passing her driving test at the first attempt at the Musselburgh

driving test centre in Edinburgh.

Joanna passed with only 3 minor driving faults at the end of a 15 hour intensive driving course. A fantastic drive and well deserved.

Congratulations from your driving instructor Steve and all the team at the Capital Driving School.

What Joanna had to say:

I choose the Capital Driving School as they did intensive driving courses and this suited me, as I wanted to pass the driving test fairly quickly and since I was a student off for the summer I had enough free time on my hands to do this during daylight hours.

I got the driving schools’ contact details from their website which I found after Googling intensive driving courses and this looked to be the best. The many positive reviews were very encouraging. My instructor Steve was great with helping my manoeuvers along and taught me handy tips that made it easy to remember the procedures. This was definitely helpful and made me feel less nervous when it came to the test. I felt very safe in the car with Steve as I knew that he wouldn’t let me do anything disastrous!

I definitely feel that I have benefited in the long run from Steve’s tuition. Steve was very helpful and gave clear instructions which helped me improve my driving quickly. He was always checking with me to make sure that I fully understood something, otherwise he would go over it again until I did. At the end of each lesson he would go over the main things to remember and what to work on next time. He made me feel relaxed from the first lesson, and I wish to thank him for helping me to pass.

The customer service I received was excellent from start to finish.

 

Driving Lessons with Steve the instructor.Dr. Michael Lawson, Edinburgh.

Congratulations to Dr. Michael Lawson on passing his practical driving test at the first attempt. Michael

passed at the Musselburgh driving test centre at the end of a 20 hour intensive driving course. Michael made it

easy in the end and the examiner was happy to mark a ‘Pass’. Very well done and best wishes for the future from your driving instructor Steve and all the team here at the Capital Driving School.

What Michael had to say:

Like many others, I choose The Capital Driving School based on its excellent online reviews. This is the third driving school I’ve used over the last decade so I expected it to be much like the others. It was, in fact, quite similar – although this time I passed at the end! Steve was certainly the best instructor I’ve ever had. His tuition was comprehensive but focused on the most important elements for real world driving. For example, the emphasis would be on how and when you should change gears rather than the way you hold the gearstick! It sounds like a minor point, but it saves a lot of time and confusion if you’re not forced to unlearn unimportant bad habits that you might have picked up from other instructors. Other than that, Steve was an easy person to spend 20 hours in a car with and I enjoyed his company. I’ve already recommended this driving school to two colleagues that are thinking about learning to drive. They really are straight to the point, and as long as you follow their directions and put the effort in, you stand an excellent chance of passing your test.

From a cost perspective, they are extremely competitive – particularly considering the level of service you receive. One other thing stands out: I wanted to book a block 25 hours but he encouraged me to take 20 as he thought it was more appropriate to my experience. He was right and I passed at the end of the week saving me ~£100. For me, that is almost unbelievable but it really happened. Imagine if all companies were as honest and cared so much about their customers? The customer service was excellent. I have had some bad experiences with other driving schools in Edinburgh refusing to pick me up after work, on the weekend, or from my house. Nothing like that from these guys; couldn’t have wished for more!
