Driving Lessons Blackpool

Choosing a Driving School in Blackpool to take your driving lessons with is probably the most important decision that you will have to make and can be a daunting prospect. A quick look on the internet shows many driving schools in the Blackpool area alone so how do you go about identifying the one to suit your needs?

The following sections detail some of the ways that people make their choice;

Personal Recommendations

By far the best method is a recommendation from a friend or relative who can give first hand experience taking driving lessons with a driving instructor or school in Blackpool.

Recommendations supply us with approx 80% of our work, this is something that we are very proud of. We like to think that all our students are happy with the service and tuition that they receive and without their referrals we simply could not survive.

Laura from Blackpool says “Golden Mile have taught all of my family to drive. My Brother, step Mother and myself. We have all passed with very few minors and have been delighted with customer service from this driving school, when my daughter grows up and is able to take lessons I wouldn’t want her going with anyone else but Golden Mile Driver Training”



We advise you only choose a driving instructor who holds a FULL Approved Driving Instructor qualification otherwise known as ADI. You can easily check if your driving instructor is an ADI as they should be displaying a GREEN badge in the windscreen of their car. This green badge means the driving instructor has competed a very stringent qualification process comprising of three rigorous exams and proved to the DVSA that they are fully competent to teach you to drive which meets the requirements of the DVSA.

Be very wary of an instructor with a PINK badge, this means they will still be in the process of qualifying for the final exam. Approximately 75% of these trainees do not go on to qualify and the official pass rate is about 25%
Large national driving schools such as RED, BILL PLANT, and AA tend to use trainees and will generally charge the same rate for their services!

It’s important to note that these trainee’s have only passed their theory and practical driving tests and will be preparing for the all important test of instructional ability at your expense. To check a driving instructor is registered you can visit the register of approved driving instructors

Here at Golden Mile Driving School  we take pride in only supplying FULLY QUALIFIED DRIVING INSTRUCTORS. We also take continued professional development very seriously and keep up to date with the latest teaching methods.

Tuition Quality


A proportion of our work comes from students that have decided to change from their present school due to a variety of reasons e.g.

“My instructor is always talking on the phone instead of looking after me
I receive no feedback to enable me to improve
We wasted about ten minutes while my instructor had a cigarette”
“They talk more about themselves than about my driving“.

These are just some of the reasons that are given to us when talking to new students.

Does this sound familiar?

Here at Golden Mile  we feel that we offer a realistic driving lesson fee that enables us to attract the very best instructors in the area, and also invest in continued training to keep us at the top of our profession. We feel very confident that you will stay with us.

In Conclusion

As mentioned previously your choice is a daunting one and your final decision could be a very expensive mistake if you get it wrong.

Whatever your choice, we hope it is the correct one and would like to wish you a positive learning experience along with safe driving for life.
