    Choosing The Right Course For You in Lanark...

    Selecting the appropriate driving course is a crucial step on your path to becoming a licensed driver, and having the right guidance to choose the best course for your needs is essential. Below, you’ll find descriptions of three different course levels to help you understand which might suit you best. For further details, please call us on 0800 112 3515 and let’s get you on the road today!


    Beginner Level – Gold/Platinum Courses: Ideal for those who have no driving experience, our Gold and Platinum courses are structured to accelerate your learning. Unlike traditional, weekly lessons, these intensive courses are designed to get you test-ready more quickly, typically within 2 to 3 weeks. This will require substantial time commitment during the day, and you may need to arrange some time off to accommodate your training schedule.


    Intermediate Level – Silver Courses: Perfect for learners who already have some experience behind the wheel, typically around 20 hours, and need to advance their skills to reach test standard. Our Silver courses are designed to bridge the gap between your current skill level and the full readiness required for the driving test.


    Whatever your starting point, we have a course that can help you advance to full driving proficiency.

    Practical Test Centres Near Lanark

    Lanark has a test centre itself. So taking your driving test will not require you to travel to other towns. All our intensive courses will help you become test standard and be familiar with the area prior to taking your test!

    Theory Test Centres Near Lanark

    Lanark does not have its own theory test centre, which means that taking your test will require you to travel to other towns. The nearest test centre you can travel to is the Stirling. You cannot book a practical until you’ve passed the theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    With all our intensive driving courses in Lanark, we don’t mind if you have not passed your theory yet. We like to take on learners who have not got their theory as we believe it’s just as important as the practical test.
