How Much Are Driving Lessons In Edinburgh?

The cost of driving lessons in the UK varies depending on the area. Currently, in Edinburgh, the price range for driving lessons is between £28-£42 per hour. A large franchise like RED, BSM, or Bill Plant usually charge a lot more money so would be at the higher end of the scale as a percentage of the money goes to the company so this has to be built into the cost. Driving lessons are usually charged at an hourly rate, you want to check that your driving instructor in Edinburgh is fully qualified and not a trainee. Usually, independent Edinburgh driving instructors will be fully qualified. However,  with the big franchises, a huge percentage of their instructors are not yet fully qualified but charging top price.

Unhappy? Change Driving Instructor!

Learning to drive is an expensive and extremely important skill. Not only do you want to feel safe and become a confident driver, but you also want to enjoy the learning experience. I personally don’t think it is wise signing up for a big block of 10 driving lessons before you have met and been out with a driving instructor.

I would recommend Angus to anyone! He made me feel incredibly safe at all times and was supportive and reassuring. He... has amazing knowledge of the test routes and ensured that we had covered every aspect of the test, which meant that I felt very secure when actually doing it. Angus' teaching not only prepared me for the driving test but also ensured that I feel safe and comfortable to drive alone now that I have passed.read more

I’d highly recommend Angus. My son was initially very anxious and hugely lacking confidence. He took a while to feel... coordinated and comfortable behind the wheel, and I think he believed he’d never be able to drive safely. However, he passed his test first time today! Angus is highly engaging, a great communicator and highly efficient. He has an ability to instil confidence, not only in my son, but in me. He took me on lessons to demonstrate to me that I could safely take my son out in my own car!! Thanks so much .read more

Angus taught my daughter to drive over the past 3 months. She tells me he was very thorough both on the practical and... theory side. She felt well prepared for both tests. He made every lesson fun and she looked forward to her lessons. I’d highly recommend Angus to teach you to drive, both my children passing first time with his excellent teaching.read more

I was a nervous driver before I had Angus as a teacher but every lesson he made me feel extremely calm. He was... fantastic at explaining and always gave me helpful feedback. I came out of every lesson feeling positive and made progress quickly! I passed first time and this would not have been possible without Angus as a teacher, thank you Angus! 😊read more

Angus is a brilliant driving instructor. He’s hugely positive, engaging and makes the experience of learning to drive... enjoyable. He gave me all the best tips and helped me pass my driving test after just a couple months of lessons. Most importantly, he made me feel confident when I was in the driver seat and I feel capable of driving on my own after his teaching. I would absolutely recommend him!!!read more

Angus was an amazing instructor who helped me pass my test within a couple months. He was patient and took his time in... explaining and perfecting all aspects of driving. When I first started with Angus I was quite nervous having had such a long break between driving due to covid, but after my first lesson I felt my confidence coming back. His communication and determination to put you at ease is astounding. I couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone looking for an instructor. It was a pleasure learning with Angus and I’m very grateful for all his help!read more

Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! After a negative experience with my first driving instructor 8 years ago... I was quite nervous to start lessons again but Angus immediately put me at ease and helped to build up my confidence. I ended up really enjoying the lessons and felt very well prepared by the time it came to my test. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for driving lessons in Edinburgh - thanks again Angus!read more

Writing this after having passed my test earlier today. From the start I found Angus' approach great - calm, relaxed,... patient, and lessons were fun. I first started learning almost 16 years ago, and I had tried a couple of times since but kept getting discouraged and giving up. With Angus I was never close to that. He had a great understanding throughout of what I needed. I highly recommend him to any learners who think they are particularly nervous/anxious as his approach was perfect for me.Just an aside - he is extremely punctual and reliable, I never once had a lesson cancelled.read more

I am so glad I chose Angus as a driving instructor. He is incredibly patient and adapted to how I learn really easily.... The videos on his website are great for going over things before or after a lesson too. Being 34, I was nervous to get back to driving after stopping lessons when I was 17 but Angus was great at putting me at ease whilst still making the lessons challenging enough for me to keep improving. He was very flexible with timings so that i could work it round childcare, which was much appreciated. I passed first time and credit that fully to Angus's great teaching. More importantly, I feel confident when driving alone now and can still hear Angus's tips in my head! I would very highly recommend.read more

I would highly recommend Angus as a driving instructor in the Edinburgh area. Having many years of experience driving... automatic cars in the USA and Puerto Rico, I had no clue with a manual transmission and on the other side of the road. Angus was patient, professional, non intimidating and a very clear communicator. Regardless of an extremely busy schedule, he always made space to accommodate me and make the most out of every time we went out. You can just tell he has loads of experience teaching people from a variety of backgrounds and different learning styles. A joy indeed.read more

Can thoroughly recommend Angus! He is everything you'd want from a driving instructor - patient, extremely flexible,... knowledgeable, good chat. Most of all, he's an excellent teacher. He pushes you just hard enough each lesson so you feel like you're making excellent progress, but never too far to be scary or impossibly difficult. I passed my test at the first attempt yesterday - the statistics show that passing in Edinburgh is pretty hard, but Angus definitely helps you best those odds!read more

Angus is a very good driving instructor, I had been driving previously in a rural area and had booked lessons and my... test in Edinburgh and at first found it difficult adapting to the style of driving. After a few lessons with Angus I was much more confident and able to pass my driving test. I would highly recommend, also videos on YouTube are very good!read more

I would highly recommend Angus as an instructor if you are searching for someone to learn to drive with. He is a top quality instructor and is clearly passionate about his work.

Emma Winning, Penicuik

Learning with Angus was amazing. He is enthusiastic, positive and has an approach that other schools don't have simply by caring about his students. I passed on my first attempt thanks to Angus.
