What Our Customers Have To Say-

Mark Glendinning, Edinburgh. “Thanks to Sean at Capital Driving I passed my driving test first time, he made the driving lessons fun and got straight to the point as to what  was required for me to pass my driving test at the Edinburgh driving test centre. I would definitely recommend this Driving School and especially this Driving Instructor to anyone. Thanks so much Sean.”

Sandra Walsh, Edinburgh. “Really enjoyed learning to drive with Capital Driving, Sean was an excellent teacher very patient and straightforward. I was a very nervous driver and he made the experience a lot less daunting. I didn’t have the most flexible of schedule’s but he always fitted me in and was very accomodating when I had to change dates and times. I passed first time which I would never have expected at the beginning, if you are looking for a no nonsence approach I would definately recommend Capital Driving.”

How Many Driving Lessons Will You Need?

DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency) research states that learner drivers need 45 hours of driving tuition on average to become competent drivers, and ultimately pass the practical driving test. We have had numerous learner drivers go from total beginner, to passing the driving test in 20-25 hours. We have even had one customer pass the driving test with a grand total of 17 hours, with no previous experience. On the flip side some of our customers have taken considerably more than 45 hours to reach driving test standard.

Your ability to learn to drive comes down to a number of factors. Most people wrongly think that being nervous is the number one stumbling block in learning to drive. We would disagree. Coordination is the most important factor in our opinion. Nervous learner drivers need well planned driving lessons and suitable route selection, for their current driving experience and ability.

Our proprietary methods will ensure that you will learn to drive as quickly as possible. We do not waste time on your lessons sitting at the roadside talking endless theory, that simply goes over your head. Our driving instructors witness this on a daily basis from other driving schools. Most people can only take in a limited amount of information before switching off.

If you want to spend the maximum amount of time on your driving lessons actually driving the car and gaining valuable experience, then try us out for your driving lessons. We aim to get you to driving test standard in the shortest time possible, whilst ensuring that you are safe and competent on the road.
