DRIVING'S COOL - Learn to drive in a stylish MINI

53 E Crosscauseway, Edinburgh EH8 9HG, UK – 0131 622 2206

I had initially started learning to drive in Glasgow but due to a new job, had to find an instructor in Edinburgh, get used to a new car, and comfortable in a new, unfamiliar city. As a naturally nervous driver, Martin was happy to teach me at a pace that suited me and for me to take my test when I felt 100% ready. I'm absolutely delighted to say that I passed this week first time and with only 5 minor faults. Martin's high standards of teaching and encouragement helped me feel confident and safe on the road. Huge thanks, Martin!! :)

I have just passed my practical test yesterday, can't explained I pleased I am😉. I been taking lessons from Helen McCarty- simply a very professional instructor who made the learning process very exciting! I felt she was a very keen guide on safe driving, and didn't make me feel stressed during difficult situations e.g complicated large roundabouts. I would recommend driving cool without any hesitation. Many thanks for your services to the community.

Milligan Driver Training

Paul has a calm and reassuring approach to teaching. As a result of his professionalism and knowledge I was given the confidence and skills required to not only to pass my test, after long gaps between driving but also to be a life long good and safe driver. Thanks Paul!

Paul is a great driving instructor who I would recommend! He makes you feel calm in all situations and explains everything to you in an easy to understand way. Paul put me at ease when I was very nervous about driving (especially reversing!). I would highly recommend Milligan Driver Training to anyone, especially if you are nervous.

I would highly recommend Jon as an instructor for anyone wanting to learn how to drive. His calm and friendly attitude combined with his patience and encouragement made every lesson enjoyable and insightful. Great structure to each of his lessons and clear, helpful feedback as you go to build greater confidence on the road. Couldn't recommend Jon highly enough!

Passed first time very happy and I’ll be a safe driver on the road. So now you can call me king of the road! Thank you very much Kevin your a star

Capital Driver Training

111/9 Lauriston Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9JG, UK – 0800 013 0032

I found Capital Driver Training online, and was a little suspicious about how glowing the feedback seemed to be for Sean and his business. A few weeks later I can safely say he's earned all the praise and more. He was friendly, professional and accommodating. Worked with me to iron out a few kinks in my schedule and brilliantly coached me to a first time pass. Already passed his details to a few palls, and would be happy to recommend him to any aspiring drivers. Cheers Sean!

I sincerely recommend CDT to anybody needing to (1) learn to drive safely and confidently, and (2) pass their driving test. My instructor, Sean, very quickly noticed all of the gaps in my skills and we systematically addressed them over the course of the 15 hour intensive sessions (I'd been a learner driver on and off for 10 years, so the gaps were plentiful). I went from having a deep lack of confidence in my driving to a feeling of real readiness to take my practical test, something I didn't think would be easy, let alone possible in 15 hours of lessons. I subsequently passed my test on the first attempt and still retain the driving confidence I built up during the lessons. What I particularly liked was that the lessons were not some series of "hacks" to help me pass a test. They were a method to build me up into a good driver that was able to easily pass the driving test. In short, I cannot recommend CDT highly enough. If you want to learn to drive well and pass your test in a compressed time period then this is the way to do it.
