Change to Lesson Prices

We have not increased our prices for some years now.
In that time our running costs, especially fuel, have gone up significantly.

From the 1 April 2017 the price per lesson to new students will be £27.
We will continue to offer a block of 5 lessons for a discounted price of £120.
PassPlus courses will be £165.

These increases will not affect current students or new students starting their lessons before 1 April for 6 months.

In-Car Payment Available

We can now take credit and debit card payments in car with the new mobile card terminal. So you don’t need to rush to the bank before your lesson or carry loads of cash.
Not all of our instructors have decided to take cards so check before hand with your individual instructor for ways that they can accept payment.
