Helping You Pass Your Test


As one of the foremost providers of driver training in Edinburgh and the Lothians since 2003, we have years of experience and a strong reputation. Part of this is the quality cars we use for the Edinburgh driving lessons. You can reach us on a local number, but our online lesson booking service and other question enquiries are equally useful. 

There is a mutual support base among Driving's Cool's instructors, so you don't have to miss out on lessons when they take a holiday. We also encourage genuine mock tests, arranged with one of our other instructors you don't know. This way you can significantly reduce your nerves when it comes to the real driving test. We plan ahead so our clients are not just trained to pass a test but shown how to become confident and safe drivers for life.


Designer  Lessons
Tailored for you


Your First  Driving Lesson?

The instructor would bring you to a quieter area to begin with. All our Mini’s have dual controls for your security.  Though the instructor would talk you through what to do from the start so the extra controls are seldom needed. To take driving lessons here in Britain, you need either a provisional license, full licence or a foreign license valid in the UK.  A provisional license is not valid until you are 17, but you can apply for it in advance so you have it and can use it as soon as the day is there. There is no need to pass your theory test before taking driving lessons. When you start driving, however, it is good to prepare for the theory test as well. You cannot book a practical test until you have passed your theory test.

Already Taken Lessons but  Now  it is Time to Finish?

Considering the cost of learning to drive, you might as well enjoy the process. And there's nothing out there that drives and looks better than our MINIs. Nervous? Our friendly instructors will go out of their way to put you at ease. Edinburgh driving lessons should be an enjoyable and pleasant experience with Driving's Cool.

Time to get back in the Driving Seat?

Feeling out of practice or not familiar with the roads in Edinburgh? Driving lessons or a refresher course could be just the ticket. Our instructors will work with you to bring back your driving skills, safety routines and your confidence. Give it a try.


    Matrin was an excellent instructor, very helpful and kind. He reassured me and showed me that I was capable even when I thought I wasn't. I really recommend Martin especially for his patience. Thanks for everything, all the best. 😀

    I passed my test first time thanks to my instructor Graham. He was very calm and patient and made sure that I was fully prepared for my test. Thanks Graham!

    I had Helen take me through all my lessons. She was very thorough, calm and made me feel so relaxed and confident. She pointed out where I wasn’t great and focussed on those areas which really helped. Very polite and patient, if thinking of undertaking lessons I highly recommend her. She is an absolute gem !!
