That is a lot of money - but driving is a skill for life. It can help you gain employment, travel, and create everlasting memories.

Top tips for saving money on driving lessons

  • Buy bulk lessons - you can save £££s straight from the fully qualified driving instructor.
  • Get in some private practice - Jump in a car with a friend or family. The more time you spend in a car - the faster you pass.
  • Keep up your driving lessons - Try and take 2 driving lessons per week and don't take time off. You will be a lot more likely to retain information the more often you have lessons.

Top tips for driving lessons in Glasgow

Here are some of the definitive tips for learning to drive on the city by the Clyde.

1. Get used to the busy traffic on Sauchiehall street.

When driving around Glasgow, Sauchiehall street is always a busy place. So once you master the confidence of the car - proving you can manage traffic there surely means you're test ready.

2. Know your test centre.

There are a bunch of driving test centres in Glasgow. Make sure you know which one suits you - Anniesland, Ballieston, Sheildhall, Bishopbriggs, Hamilton or maybe a little further out at East Kilbride.

3. Get used to the M80

Since the new law has passed that allows learners to drive on motorways with their driving instructor - you can now get onto the M80 and practice driving around Glasgow, to the airport and back. Gaining confidence on these roads are key to passing your test and becoming a great driver.
