Driving Lessons Edinburgh offers competitively priced driving lessons throughout Edinburgh, from very experienced and encouraging fully-qualified ADI driving instructors.
We cover the whole of Edinburgh – please click here to see the areas we cover in more detail.
Our instructors are very familiar with all aspects of the DVSA theory and practical driving tests, and keep up to date with the many and frequent changes to the official tests. In addition, our instructors have excellent knowledge of the local driving conditions across Edinburgh, and can advise on specific issues for the two key Edinburgh Test Centres – at Musselburgh and Currie.
Learning To Drive in Edinburgh
We have written a number of informative guides with the aim of providing some practical assistance to learner drivers in the Edinburgh area. These articles are obviously not a substitute for learning to drive with a fully-qualified instructor – they are designed to help pupils become more confident about reinforcing specific driving skills between lessons, as well as to become more familiar with the varied road conditions found throughout Edinburgh. As such, these guides are focused on the areas of the City of Edinburgh that many of our pupils will be likely to encounter.
In addition to great quality, affordable driving lessons, we also provide the option to buy discounted blocks of tuition, to purchase a gift voucher for lessons for friends or family, intensive and semi-intensive courses, as well as ADI instructor training. For more information call Robert today on 07447 928 225.
Test Centres in Edinburgh
There are two Test Centres in Edinburgh for your practical driving test – Currie and Musselburgh:
Currie Test Centre
13-15 Bryce Road
City of Edinburgh
Musselburgh Test Centre
Newhailes Industrial Estate
City of Edinburgh
Most of our pupils will sit the practical driving examination at Currie Test Centre, because of its proximity to the catchment area we serve.
Edinburgh Speed Limits and Traffic Cameras
Pupils driving on the roads in and around Edinburgh will doubtless encounter a wide range of driving conditions, with a wide range of speed limits. Speed limits will reflect the road conditions, whether it’s a Twenty’s Plenty zone near houses or a slip road on to the Bypass, so it is essential that you are aware of the relevant limits for your current road.
Schools are worth mentioning specifically, because they often have restrictions on both speed – sometimes with a flashing light to signal a mandatory 20mph limit at certain times of day – and with restrictions on parking near any entrances to school property.
Another important thing to watch out for are speed cameras and red light cameras, which are situated at various locations throughout Edinburgh. These can sometimes catch out learner drivers, particularly when dealing with difficult or busy driving conditions – so again it is important to be aware of this.
