Learning to drive with a driving instructor from Second to None driving school almost guarantees you that first time pass. With us you truly are learning to drive with the professionals.

So what does this tell you about driving instructors? Well for one we are not all the same and your choice of driving instructor is a very important one that can make a massive difference to your progress and the cost of learning to drive. Some pupils have had such bad experiences that it has put them off learning to drive altogether so please do your research before making any decissions.

Driving Instructor Training Courses
We are always on the look out for driving instructors to join the team here at 2nd2None Driving School. We currently teach over 500 pupils every week and demand is growing. We often find our team of instructors turning work away due to full diaries and there simply are not enough driving instructors available for the demand at the moment. Our Instructor Training Courses are carried out in your local area on a one to one basis so you have the full attention of your assigned ORDIT trainer. We even have a Train Now and Pay Once You Earn option which means you can avoid big upfront costs normally associated with instructor training.

Automatic Driving Lessons available in
Learning to drive in an automatic car can take a lot of the stress out of learning to drive and make the whole process easier to achieve. Most pupils will get on fine with clutch control and changing gears after a couple of hours but for some of us it can prove a real challenge especially when we have everything else to concentrate on while learning to drive.

So happy I found this driving school, would recommend it to everyone, I really believe its the best one out there so thank you :)
Dannielle Cotterill, Bristol
When I first started driving, I was so nervous, but learning to drive with 2nd2None was great, I felt at ease in no time, and I've just passed my test first time! My instructor, James, was very helpful, and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him!
Thank you 2nd2None Driving School!
Molly Masters, Shaftesbury, Dorset
I would like to say a big thank you to Eric for helping me pass my driving test first time at Bristol Brislington.
Would highly recommend him, he always made me feel relaxed and made the lesson fun.
Jordon Townsley, Radstock nr Bath
Without James I wouldn't have been able to pass, after my accident he built up my courage to learn to drive again. The free access to Theory Test Pro was my revision to pass my theory and without it I probably wouldn't have. Overall, my driving experience was fun, giggliy and a memory I plan to keep forever. Thank you James
Tara Chambers, Gillingham Dorset
On 3rd of July I passed my driving test on my 2nd attempt with just 5 minors at Dorchester and its all thanks to James!
He was so supportive and helped me calm my nerves every step of the way. James is a very friendly person so I felt relaxed even from my first lesson. He was also very professional which made me feel relaxed. Thank you so much James. Couldnt of asked for a better instructor!
Highly recommend James and 2nd2none!
Jessica Cuff, Motcombe, Dorset
After having driving lessons with another driving school I didnt feel very happy at all being behind the wheel.
So glad Iwent with 2nd2none, without their calm approach to my nerves I highly doubt I would of passed first time in Dorchester.
Sophie Gass-Brown, Stubhampton, Dorset
I cant thank Paul Shackleton enough for all the help and encouragement he has given me during this driving course.
I started off terrified behind the wheel and concerned because of my limited mobility. But Paul is a great teacher who was patient with me, yet pushed me when I needed to be pushed. He taught me the skills and gave me the confidence I needed to pass first time in Dorchester. Thanks again Paul.
David Brayshaw, Weymouth, Dorset
