Amazing instructor, and without Shamsul and Drive 321 I would still be struggling to learn, instead, I am now able to drive myself to work and have my own taste of freedom.

If you want to pass fast make sure you choose to learn with Shamsul and drive321 as he is by far the best instructor in Luton and I'd still be taking lessons if I was with any other driving school

Frequently asked questions in Bedford

Are your driving instructors in Bedford all fully trained and safety checked?

Our driving instructors in Bedford are all fully qualified and come with a Grade-A rating from the DVSA. You will benefit from learning to drive with some of Bedford's finest driving instructors. Our instructors are also DBS checked and approved by DRIVE 321, so you can be sure you're in safe hands with them. We constantly monitor our instructors and conduct regular checks to ensure they follow our code of conduct and stick to our high teaching standards.

When is the best time of day to have my driving lessons in Bedford?

It's always best to have your driving lessons in Bedford during the day when it is still light outside. Driving in the dark is something that even experienced drivers can struggle with as your visibility is lower than it would be during the day. Learning to drive in the dark can add more pressure and make it difficult for you to retain information from your driving instructor. We understand not everyone can have driving lessons during the day during the week because of work and other commitments. That's why most of our driving instructors are available for driving lessons on the weekends.

Do you do automatic driving lessons in Bedford?

Yes, we have a range of automatic driving instructors in Bedford that can help you along your driving journey. All our instructors provide quality automatic driving lessons in Bedford that will see you develop your skills with every lesson. This allows all of our learners to see their confidence grow whilst getting the most out of every lesson.

Where will I take my driving lessons in Bedford?

If you have never driven before, your lessons will start on quiet roads where you are unlikely to run into other cars. These locations include Tyne Crescent, but other locations may be used depending on where you live. On these roads, you can master clutch control, left turns and parallel parking, all whilst staying in 20mph zones.

Once your confidence grows, the A428 on the edge of the town provides the perfect environment to practise smaller roundabouts before moving onto trickier areas. When you are ready to join heavier traffic, Kempston Road running between Bedford Hospital and the River Great Ouse will allow you to spread your wings a little. To get you up to test standard, the A421 offers excellent opportunities to practise driving on a dual carriageway, tackle larger roundabouts and dealing with other road users.

Where is the closest test centre to me?

Luckily when you are taking your driving lessons in Bedford, you will also be able to take your driving test in Bedford. Due to having your lessons in Bedford, when your instructor believes you are ready for your driving test, they will begin to show you the test routes. This will allow you to continue to grow your experience whilst calming your nerves before you take your test.
