Learning to drive in Newcastle upon Tyne

Like with any large city, learning to drive in Newcastle has its fair share of challenges, with high traffic and tricky junctions. There are plenty of great places to hone your skills outside of the city centre though. And don’t forget that learning to overcome the city’s trickier areas will have you well prepared for life on the roads after you’ve passed your test!

If you’re looking for somewhere to get that all-important practice in before your practical driving test, we suggest heading to Elswick. Not only are there plenty of quiet residential streets here, but this is also the area where Newcastle’s driving test centre is based. Getting familiar with these roads is key to feeling relaxed and confident on the big day!

Manual and automatic driving lessons

If you’re Newcastle-based, you can take your pick from our automatic or manual driving lessons.

There’s lots to think about when it comes to choosing which kind of driving lessons you’d like to take. There’s less to get your head round if you choose automatic, but these lessons do tend to be more expensive and an automatic licence will only qualify you to drive an automatic vehicle. A manual licence, on the other hand, will qualify you to drive manual and automatic vehicles.

I was assigned a fantastic instructor who couldn’t have done a better job. Thanks to him and Midrive, I passed my practical test first time!

It was really easy to book classes, and so handy being able to keep track of everything on the app. Loved the theory app too!
