Choosing the right driving school can be difficult to say the least. It’s not just about getting your driver’s license, but actually learning how to drive properly and obeying the traffic laws. A good driving school will teach you all the basics and most of the advanced techniques involved in operating a motor vehicle safely on the road. It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and one you should cherish. Why should you choose Andy1st? Well, there are several reasons why we’re considered to be one of the best driving schools.

Experienced Driving Instructors

The instructors are perhaps the most vital and important component of a driving course. They’re the ones who are going to teach and train you, effectively making you the best driver you can be. They have to be professional and experienced, but still have that human characteristic of friendliness and kindness. You’re going to learn a lot in a safe and friendly environment as the instructors give you every opportunity to make mistakes and learn. There is no pressure. They adapt to your driving skills and experience as well as tempo, rather than you adapting to theirs. You can take it as slow and easy as you want. What better way to learn how to drive a car?

The End Goals

The end goal is to, naturally, teaching you how to operate a car in compliance with all the laws and regulations. In doing so however, we aim to offer you as much fun and excitement as possible. Learning how to drive a car doesn’t have to be dull, stressful or tedious. With the right instructor, and the right driving school, it’s a truly fun process. We love helping people reach their goals, and teaching someone how to drive is probably the best thing one can accomplish.

The Experience

Like we said, the key to a successful tuition is pace and friendliness. We can adapt to anyone’s speed or learning ability and customize the instruction to each individual person. Edinburgh is a wonderful city, but driving in it can sometimes prove to be tricky. If you don’t know all the little hidden tricks and small nuisances, you won’t progress as fast. Thankfully, all of our instructors are well familiarized with the city. They’ve done this for several years, having taught hundreds of people how to drive, just like yourself. Having confidence in your instructor is perhaps the most valuable thing. It enables you to learn and adapt quickly and effortlessly, without even thinking about it.

The Cars

Naturally, all of our vehicles are registered, insured and fully road-legal. We use modern, easy to drive cars in all of our driving lessons in Edinburgh. You can quickly get a feel for the car and get comfortable in it just within minutes of starting the lesson. Our cars are equipped with A/C, keeping you cool (or hot) no matter the season. We gathered that beginners learn more quickly when they’re completely comfortable and relaxed. Even the slightest distraction will slow the learning process. It’s why we aim to make the entire process as stress-free as possible.

How Many Lessons Will I Need?

It all depends on your previous experience and knowledge. Learning to drive is a difficult task at the best of times, requiring your full concentration and dedication. When starting off, you’re naturally going to find it more challenging, but it will get easier as time goes on. At a certain point, it will almost become second nature. The learning process varies from person to person. Lots of factors come into play. Have you driven a car before? Have you taken any previous lessons prior to the ones with Andy1st? We’ve had people learn how to drive with just 11 hours of driving lessons in Edinburgh and no previous private practice. Those preferring to take things slow will take a bit longer, but it’s not an issue at all. As long as you’re comfortable, happy and having fun, nothing else really matters. There’s no rush to finish the lessons quickly as you’re not on a time limit or restricted by the number of lessons you can take. It’s all down to you really.

Intensive Driving Courses

In addition to beginner driving lessons in Edinburgh, we offer intensive driving courses in Edinburgh as well. They’re predominantly aimed at people who already know how to drive but want to further perfect their skills. Again, just because it’s an intensive driving course doesn’t mean the actual lessons will be super intensive. In fact, we encourage everyone attending to take things slow and learn things effectively, not quickly. We prefer quality over quantity.


All of the points we mentioned above make us the best driving school in Edinburgh. We adapt to each and every person individually, custom-tailoring the experience to match your needs and requirements. For excellent schooling in Edinburgh, as well as intensive driving courses in Edinburgh, feel free to give us a call or send us a message and we can set up an appointment.
