Driving lessons weekly
In this course your lessons will be arranged over a period of weeks where you will be taught all aspects of driving. When you have reached a good standard, you will be advised to apply for your driving test. Once you have passed your driving test, you will be offered the chance to receive further help in other areas such as Motorway Driving and Pass Plus.
We can work around you, if you would like to start from home and finish at work or school we can do that. We have driving instructors that start as early as 6.30 in the morning and up to 9 in the evening Monday - Sunday.
Waiting times to start lessons can vary. Evening and weekend lessons are the most popular times and therefore you may have to wait longer for your first driving lesson so book in plenty of time to save disappointment.

What Pupils Are Saying
I had Tim as my instructor and I passed first time . He’s calm and very patient.
When I first started looking into driving lessons, I walked straight to NA DVLA test center 'cause it was only round then corner and asked about intensive courses. Dan, from first gear happened to be there, approached me and talked me through everything I needed to do.
Although lessons did not continue with Dan due to complications, I don't think I could have asked for a better instructor starting out as a learner. Great character and definitely knows what he's doing.
When i first called 1st Gear School of Motoring they were very helpful and put me at ease straight away. My lessons were with an instructor called Graham Woodcock and i would recommend him to anyone for driving lessons.
I passed 2nd time but that was my fault. A great driving school Graham was always on time and never cancelled any of my lessons. Cheers Graham. See you on the road mate.
Brilliant! A large family means more than one driving lesson trauma for the brood so what a relief when we finally chose the right tuition and chose a driving School that demonstrated a friendly professionalism that surpassed all previous experiences. Well done First Gear... will definitely be sending the grand children your way soon!
I was recommended 1st Gear by a friend and I would recommend them too. The lessons went very well and I learnt to drive quickly. The instructor was a good laugh and good at his job. I live in Torquay but I know they have instructors all over Torbay and Exeter.
