Driving Lessons South Shields
Your driving lessons in South Shields

Your driving lessons in and around South Shields will be tailored to meet your needs. Whether you are a complete beginner or already have driving experience, your instructor will select an area to suit your ability.

If you are new to driving you will start your lessons on a nursery route and as you progress, at a pace to suit you, will move on to more advanced areas where you will gain experience on busier junctions and roundabouts.

Being close to A19 is an advantage when it comes to learning how to deal with dual carriageways. Heading North would lead you through the Tyne Tunnel which will enable you to gain experience using a toll road.

From 4th June 2018, learner drivers can drive on motorways, under instruction of a qualified instructor in a car fitted with dual controls.

Learning to drive in South Shields is an advantage when having motorway lessons, as you are close to White Mare pool roundabout which will link to A194(M) and then onto A1(M).
You will do motorway lessons once you are competent with dual carriageways and all other aspects of driving have been covered. These lessons will be at the end of your driving course, when you are test ready.

I would like to thank Kim Gibson for helping pass my test the first time. I never had confidence in myself but she helped me right the way through these last few months and wouldn’t have passed without her.

Kim Gibson is wonderful driving teacher. Her focus is not only on you passing your test but on making sure you gain the habits and knowledge to drive safely at any time. She went above and beyond for me because my test fell at a very unfortunate time but she still made sure I had the lessons I needed to be ready for my test. Her level of dedication to her students is something you’ll rarely find. I would readily recommend Kim to any of my friends and family learning to drive. Thanks for all the nagging Kim! All the best for the future.

Big thanks to Kim for helping me pass first time! Thanks for your patience and sticking with me even after I moved beyond the geordie borders! Kim tries all sorts of different ways to help you remember important things, is really flexible with lessons and knows the roads better than any taxi driver in the north east! highly recommended!

Would like to say thank you so much to Kim for the patience and confidence it took in teaching me to drive allowing me to pass with only 2 minors, Kim really helped me to persevere since having bad experiences with other driving schools She is lovely and a down to earth lady who always has a smile on her face and a great sense of humour, putting you at ease in every lesson. I found the help sheets, puzzles and coaching to be very beneficial and would definitely recommend Kim to other learners, she is a fantastic instructor!

Just a few lines to say a very big thank you to Kim. With today’s bad weather and heavy rain – I passed. Even the head examiner at South Shields Test Centre thought I was excellent. This is because I learned with the very best and that’s what Kim is “ The Best”. Thank you Kim and I will keep in touch with you.
