Locations of our driving instructors

We have over 2,000 instructors in locations across the UK, so pretty much wherever you are in the country we’ll have a top-rated driving instructor for you!

Our popular locations include Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester, and Sheffield.

When it comes to local knowledge, our instructors will know your area like the back of their hand. They’ll be able to guide you to the best practice spots for new learners as well as the test routes you'll need to learn before the big day! So, whatever stage you're at in your learning and wherever you are, they'll have you covered.

Automatic driving instructors

We get that everyone’s different, so we offer automatic as well as manual driving instructors. Bear in mind that there are fewer automatic instructors across the UK, so the demand for them is often higher. We’ll still aim to get you on the road within seven days - just make sure that you enter some weekday daytime options as our instructors tend to be busier on weekends and evenings.

It’s also worth noting that if you learn to drive in an automatic car, you’ll only be able to drive automatics once you get your licence. With a manual licence, though, you’re qualified to drive both types of cars. Driving lessons with automatic instructors also tend to be more expensive.

Don’t let that put you off! There are certainly perks when it comes to driving an automatic car. There’s less to get your head around, so many learners find that they end up learning faster and passing quicker as a result. Plus, it’s said that automatics are the cars of the future. Sounds tempting, doesn’t it?

Manual driving instructors

While we offer both manual and automatic driving lessons, choosing manual has many benefits! For starters, there are more manual instructors in the profession. This means matching you to an excellent Midrive instructor is easy. On top of that, manual lessons tend to be cheaper.

With a manual licence, you’ll be able to drive both manual and automatic cars - lucky you! The slight downfall is there’ll be more to remember which could make studying for your test a bit more difficult.

Weekend driving instructors

We have instructors available on both weekends and weekdays. Plus, unlike many other driving schools, we won’t charge you more on weekends or evenings!

There are pros and cons to having your driving lessons at the weekend. One perk is that roads tend to be less busy compared to weekdays. On the other hand, you may have to wait slightly longer to be matched with an instructor if you’re only available at weekends. The shortest wait times would be during the day mid-week as that’s when the most instructors are available.

We will do our best to work around your schedule! Just keep in mind that the more flexible you are with availability the easier it will be to get you matched.

Finding a female driving instructor

We realise that some people would prefer to have a female instructor. If you have a gender preference just pop a note to our Customer Happiness team on live chat before you make your booking.

While we’ll be sure to take note of your preference there are fewer female instructors around, so they tend to be in greater demand. If you’re really keen on learning with a female instructor we’ll try our best to make that happen, but it could take us a bit longer to get you matched.

That said, we believe genders are irrelevant when it comes to finding an excellent instructor! All our instructors are highly qualified and DBS checked to ensure you a safe (and totally awesome!) learning experience.
