Driving Lessons in Edinburgh!

Are you ready to become a confident driver?

Learning to drive is more than just a practical skill; it’s a gateway to a world of possibilities, offering numerous benefits that extend far beyond simply getting from point A to point B. At its core, driving provides freedom and independence, empowering individuals to chart their course through life’s journeys.

One of the greatest advantages of learning to drive is independence. No longer reliant on public transportation schedules or the availability of others for rides, drivers have the flexibility to travel on their own terms. This is why we encourage driving lessons in Edinburgh.

It builds confidence, resilience, and adaptability—qualities that are invaluable in navigating life’s twists and turns. Overcoming the challenges of learning to drive instills a sense of accomplishment and empowers individuals to tackle new challenges with courage and determination.

At DRIVE Driving School, we will provide you with a complete education. Whether you are a beginner or looking to enhance your skills, our courses are tailored to meet your needs. From basic vehicle control to advanced techniques, we cover it!

Additionally, at our Edinburgh driving school, we treat you as an individual, understanding that everyone has their own pace, and work with you to help you achieve your driving goals. We will teach you vehicle control, ways to avoid common driving hazards, and the ability to stay calm while driving. By learning to drive with us, you will become the confident driver we know you can be!

Furthermore, at Just Drive Edinburgh, we are dedicated to providing top-notch driving lessons. We’ve helped 78% of our pupils in Edinburgh pass their driving test!

Learn to drive in Edinburgh

The DVSA recommends 22 hours of private practice outside of lessons. You can take those hours with a friend or family member, providing they are aged 21 or over and have held a UK driving licence for at least three years.

There are plenty of great areas to practise in Edinburgh, whether you’re just starting out, or you’re almost ready for your test.

Novice Driver

Carrick Knowe: Carrick Knowe is a relaxed, quiet place to begin learning to drive. Broomfield Crescent offers a chance to ease your way into steering. It forms a short loop with both Broomside Terrace and Saughton Road North, which is a good route to practise the basics on.

Collington: Collington is a great place to gain confidence with the accelerator and clutch control – its long straight roads mean you can think more about the pedals and worry less about steering (you’ll still have to be able to hold a straight line though of course!). A good circuit can be made of Redford Avenue and Redford Loan, where you can perfect moving off and stopping.

East Craigs: East Craigs offers some quiet residential roads, with the odd roundabout to gently introduce you to them. Try heading south on Drum Brae Street, a slightly busier road, and take care on the roundabout at the end of it. You can then head west (the third exit) onto Glasgow Road and turn right onto the quieter residential streets again.

Intermediate Driver

The A70: The A70 is a winding country road, with blind bends, dips and rises, and several changes of speed limit. It’s a good road to test out your defensive driving, and given the road’s proximity to the Currie test centre, it makes for excellent test preparation.

Blackford: Lined with parked cars, roads in Blackford like West Savile Terrace are great for practising manoeuvres on, particularly the parallel park. West Savile Terrace goes on to meet Blackford Avenue, Charterhall Road, and Maurice Place in one big phased junction. If you can master it, you’ll be making good progress.

Restalrig Road: If you take Restalrig Road south, you’ll be challenged by a succession of roundabouts. The road meets the A1 by the Meadowbank Shopping Park. From here you can enter Meadowbank to perfect your bay parking, or continue on the A1 towards the centre of Edinburgh.

Advanced Driver

A199, Musselburgh: The A199 runs parallel to Fisherrow Harbour and is a stone’s throw from the Musselburgh driving test centre. Our tip is to turn off the A199 onto Newhailes Road, go straight over the roundabout and turn left onto Clayknowes Road before turning left again onto Stoneybank Gardens. This quiet residential area is perfect for practising your manoeuvres in an area which could come up during your practical driving test.

A1, Edinburgh: The A1 can take you into the busy heart of Edinburgh, past Calton Hill and Edinburgh Waverley. You’re sure to encounter traffic and cyclists which will test your clutch control and awareness. If you drive well in the packed centre of Edinburgh, then you’ll be well on your way to dealing effectively with the pressure of your practical driving test.

Corstorphine: Heading west on Glasgow Road you’ll meet the Gogar Roundabout. It can be intimidating at first sight with all its various exits. Keep a keen eye out for the signs indicating the slip road that will take you up to the roundabout. Try to find your lane early and pay close attention to your surroundings. From the roundabout, you can join the Edinburgh Bypass, a long dual carriageway where you can perfect your driving at higher speeds.
