MDT provides learner driver tuition for people who are just starting out at the complete novice or beginner stage / people who are at an intermediate level with previous driving experience / people who already have previous experience driving in other parts of the world. We try to provide a relaxed but informative learning environment where the learner can maximise their driving potential at a pace they feel comfortable with. Our driving lessons in Manchester are competitively priced – always be aware of companies who offer the cheapest driving lessons in Manchester as you can often find yourself with an unreliable driving instructor who is more of a hindrance than an aid to learning a skill.

Student Driving Lessons Manchester

If pre-arranged, lessons can begin at the designated University and finish at the required hall of residence or student accommodation or student house in Manchester.

Mock Tests - from £24.90 per hr

The best way to prepare for a driving test in Manchester is to have at least 2 practice tests. This allows you to be able to become mentally prepared for your driving test and work on any faults in an environment which replicates that of the day of the driving test. We can also provide second opinions for learners who are learning to drive with a different driving school.

We have a range of options available for people who have specific requirements whereby they need to learn to drive at an accelerated rate.

A one week driving course in Manchester may also include a residential stay if the individual wishes to travel to our city to take his / her intensive driving course. Please see our Crash Course page for prices and options. Our V.I.P.

Manchester Driving Lessons FAQs

When booking driving lessons in Manchester with Manchester Driver Training driving school people have often asked the following questions:

Q. Can I learn to drive in my own car?
The best professional practice is to use a driving instructor's dual controlled training car for your learner driver driving lessons in Manchester. Your safety and that of other road users is our first priority. If a hazard arose that you did not have the experience to respond to safely then the driving instructor would bring the car to a safe halt and discuss with you why the car had been stopped; which is all part of the safe learning process. In between driving lessons with your driving instructor you could use your own car for additional practice of what the instructor has taught you in the previous driving lesson but you must have another full U.K. driving licence holder in your car with you at all times and display Red L-Plates on the front and rear of your car.

If you are a full U.K. driving licence holder who had not driven for some years and wanted to use your own car for Refresher driving lessons in Manchester, then we would still recommend that the first Refresher driving lesson should be done in the driving instructor's dual controlled training car, to renew your driving skill and restore your confidence and then use your own car for any further Refresher driving lessons with the same driving instructor.

Q. How long is each driving lesson?
Driving lessons can be for 1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hours if you are doing a regular weekly driving lesson or you may choose to do couple of lessons each week for any of those periods of time. If you were doing an intensive course of driving lessons in Manchester (sometimes referred to as a “crash course”) then you might choose to do four or six hours per day but with a break after each 2 hour time period. However, we would recommend that you only do an intensive course of driving lessons if it is really essential for you to pass your Practical Driving Test urgently, because intensive courses of driving lessons do not suit every pupil's learning style.

Q. Should I pay for a block of driving lessons in advance?
We would advise that whichever driving school you choose you should start by booking one driving lesson only. That will allow you to make sure that you are compatible with the driving instructor who you are meeting for the first time and also give you the opportunity to see if you are comfortable with the car that you will be using for your driving lessons and your Practical Driving Test. Then if you are satisfied with the first driving lesson you can consider if you wish to invest in a block of driving lessons with that same driving instructor.

Q. How many driving lessons are usually needed for me to get to the Practical Driving Test Standard?
If you are a complete beginner then the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (D.V.S.A.) suggest that on average you may need approximately fortyfive hours of professional driving tuition to reach the U.K. Practical Driving Test Standard. However, it does vary from one learner driver to the next because we are all individuals and all gifted in different ways, so some pupils reach the U.K. Practical Driving Test Standard in significantly less hours. Once you have successfully covered the whole curriculum of what you need to learn for your U.K. Practical Driving Test then your driving instructor should do some mock-tests with you and give you feedback as part of your final preparations.

Q. What manoeuvres do I need to learn for my Practical Driving Test?
You will need to learn the following manoeuvres:

  • Parallel Parking (also known as Reverse Parking);
  • Bay Reverse Parking;
  • Pull up on the right hand side of the road and reverse 2 car lengths;
  • Drive forwards into a bay and reverse back out again.

As you never know when you will need to, it is also recommended that you learn how to:

  • Reverse around a corner;
  • Turn your car around in the road, (also know as the 3 point turn exercise).

Your driving instructor should always patiently and supportively teach you everything that you need to know to prepare you for your Practical Driving Test and only go at the pace of learning that you feel comfortable with.

Q. Do I need to pass my Theory and Hazard Perception Test before I start my Practical driving lessons?
No, you do not have to pass your Theory and Hazard Perception Test before you start your Practical driving lessons. However, you will need to pass your Theory and Hazard Perception Test before the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (D.V.S.A.) will allow you to book your Practical Driving Test.

Q. Do I need to have my U.K. Provisional Driving Licence with me when I am doing my Practical driving lessons?
You will need to have your U.K. Provisional Driving Licence with you to show to your driving instructor at your first driving lesson only, otherwise the lesson will not take place. Also, you will need to have your U.K. Provisional Driving Licence with you on the day of your Practical Driving Test to show to the Examiner, or your Test will be cancelled and you will lose the fee that you paid for your Practical Test. It is good practice to carry your U.K. Provisional Driving Licence with you at all times, which will ensure that you have it with you when you need it most.
