Learning to drive in Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s city centre can be tricky to get your head around if you’re new to its roads. A lot of key areas aren’t accessible to private cars, and those that are often aren’t signposted clearly - so familiarity is key!

Until you’ve got some practice in, we’d recommend sticking to quieter streets. If you’re stuck for ideas near you, you could try the loop around Silverknows Golf Club. Head down Marine Drive, up Silverknowes Road and then along Muirhouse Parkway. This is a route taken by lots of learners, as it’s wide and quiet - ideal for perfecting your parking or three-point turn!

Multiple cars

Manual and automatic driving lessons

Whether you’re after a manual or automatic licence we’ve got an instructor for you.

Make sure you brush up on the pros and cons of each licence before you choose which type of driving lessons you’d like to take. People tend to take less time to obtain an automatic licence, but this will only qualify you to drive an automatic car. On the other hand, a manual licence will qualify you to drive a manual or automatic car once you pass.
