Refund on unused hours
You don't want to pay for lessons you haven't used! If you pass your test before using up your full driving lesson package, we'll refund your unused hours.*
100% money back guarantee
We're confident you'll love learning with us - 96% of customers would recommend us! But, if you're not happy after your first lesson, we'll refund you in full.⁺
Of course! We understand that sometimes learners pass before they’ve used their full lesson package.
The refund on unused hours applies to tests booked into the Midrive app with a Midrive instructor. To claim your refund, send through a picture of your practical driving test pass certificate within 14 days of passing.
Remember that while we usually refund credits within 24 hours, it may take up to 10 working days for the refund to be reflected on your bank statement.
To make use of the money-back guarantee, get in touch within 24 hours of your first lesson explaining what went wrong and that you would like to be refunded.
We pair you with a local instructor, so you'll usually get picked up and dropped off at your home. If you want to arrange alternative pick up and drop off locations, for example, work or school, our instructors will always try to accommodate, providing these locations are still within their teaching area and the route appropriate to the days lesson!
We take card payments directly for all lesson bookings, so you don't have to worry about payments to your instructor or bringing cash to lessons - we've got you covered! To begin with, you'll pick your lesson package, anywhere from 5 to 30 hours of lessons. Your deposit of £25 will be taken upfront and the balance is take once you've been matched with an instructor and scheduled in your first lesson. Remember to ensure you have funds ready in your account when you book your first lesson! If you use up the hours in your initial purchase, you can top up by the hour any time in the Midrive app.
We aim to match our learners with an instructor in 24 hours and get you on the road for your first lesson in 7 days. Our instructors often have pre-booked diaries, normally working a few days ahead so sometimes there may be a wait of a few days until you can get started.
Our instructors' vehicles are as varied as the instructors themselves! That said, the majority tend to teach in smaller cars more suited to learners and of course all have full dual controls and DVSA compliant.
We don't make our instructor reviews public, but we only continue to work with instructors rated at least 4 out of 5 by our learners. That way you'll know you're in good hands, whoever we match you up with.
Our learners take on average 30 hours of driving lessons before passing their practical test - 17 hours fewer than the national average! So, if you're new to the wheel, we'd recommend booking our 30-hour package. If you pass quicker, we'll refund any unused hours (as long as we can see the Test Pass certificate!). And if you need a few more then you can top up by the hour to tide you over till your test. If you'd rather book a smaller lesson package to start with then that’s no problem - you can still top up by the hour once you've completed your first package to get yourself test-ready.
Midrive learners are 38% more likely to pass first time, and in 17 fewer hours than the UK average. That’s all thanks to our unique combination of trusted local instructors, and top-rated apps to accelerate your learning. Unlike many driving schools, we only work with fully qualified driving instructors who are rated a minimum of 4 out of 5 by learners - so you know you'll be learning from the best! We're sure that you'll love your instructor as much as we do. But if you don't, you're protected by our exclusive First Lesson Guarantee. That means that if you're not happy after your first driving lesson, we'll give you a free rematch or refund you in full. See our Terms & Conditions for more info!
To find driving lesson prices near you, just enter your postcode into the search box above. We offer competitively priced lessons across the UK, so wherever you’re based we’ve got you covered! As well as varying by location, driving lesson prices also vary based on which transmission you’d like to learn. In general, automatic driving lessons tend to be a little pricier than manual driving lessons, due to a greater demand for automatic instructors. But then again, there’s less to get your head around in an automatic, so you might end up passing faster and paying a lower overall price for your driving lessons as a result. If you use up your initial package and you need a few more lessons, you can just top up by the hour.
Your freedom for less
We get it. Finding a trusted local driving instructor at the right price can be daunting.
That’s why we offer competitively priced manual and automatic driving lessons across the UK, from the congested streets of London to the quaint roads of Oxford. What's more, our learners save money by passing 17 hours faster than the UK average.
All our local instructors have been rated at least 4 out of 5 by learners. So, whether you’re a Northerner learning to drive in Manchester, or a Southerner taking driving lessons in Southampton, Brighton or Portsmouth, we’ve got you covered.
