Learn to drive in Durham

The historic cathedral city of Durham is bursting with architectural treasures, from the ancient Durham Castle to the majestic Durham Cathedral – both of which enjoy idyllic riverside positions. But there’s far more to Durham than this, especially if you have the chance to explore it on four wheels.

Once you hit the road, you can explore some of the UK’s most beautiful and untouched countryside. The thriving cities of Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and York are also a manageable drive away.

Build confidence with Book Instructor

If you feel a combination of nerves and excitement when starting your driving lessons, you’re not alone. This is completely normal, and it takes time to build your confidence behind the wheel.

Our patient and experienced driving instructors here in Durham are here to help. They’ll work on developing your confidence, going at your pace and supporting you every step of the way.

It’s also good to know that all instructors’ vehicles are fitted with dual controls, just in case they ever need to take over.

Here at Book Instructor, we also offer other services to help you feel more confident out on the roads. Performance coaching is included when you book your test with us, which can help settle any pre-test jitters and prepare you for test day.

You can also book onto our online Theory Course to help you prepare for your test.
