Lesson Types

Lessons for 16 year olds (New!)

BDIA members now provide driving lessons for pupils aged 16. The driving lessons take place on private land, in most cases the lessons will take place on the land of Barnsley football club.

A six week course is available with lessons taking place each thursday, the lessons cover the basics such as starting, stopping, reversing and handling junctions.

All lessons are one on one with a comprehensively insured instructor. These lessons will help you get a head start on all the basics of driving and will fill you with confidence once the time to go on the road comes.

For more information on this please contact a member of the BDIA.

Block Bookings.

If your serious about learning to drive then block bookings are a great place to start. You can book a block of ten lessons and save money on each lesson. Once you've booked your block of lessons you can have as many lessons per week as you like( depending on the diary of the instructor).


Block bookings make great gifts, once the lessons are paid for theres nothing standing in the way of someone learning to drive and gaining their independence.

For more information about block bookings please contact a member of the BDIA.

Motorway Training.

Motorway driving can be daunting for the most experienced of drivers so it's important to have extra motorway lessons with a qualified instructor once you've passed your test. The pace on the motorway isn't something that new drivers will have experienced and it can be very intimidating.

Having extra lessons will help build your confidence and you'll learn how to use the motorway with a highly experienced, qualfied instructor by your side.
