Learn to Drive, get your Licence and get ready to Change your Life!
Learning to drive can have a massive impact on your life. For some people it’s the first taste of freedom and independence. For others, it can open the door to increased job prospects or make family life so much easier. Whatever your reasons for wanting to learn to drive, your life will change and for the better!
There are lots of ways of learning to drive – with family, friends or with a driving instructor.
Taking professional driving lessons is by far the best way of learning to drive. When you learn to drive with Duddon Learners you will benefit from the most up to date training methods. You are paying for a professional service and therefore you can expect the very best. Each one of your driving lessons is important and we will work with you to constantly develop your driving skills and awareness.
Pass your Driving Test the First Time!
It’s understandable that you want to pass your driving test as quickly as possible – who wouldn’t? With all the benefits that being able to drive has – personal independence, freedom, being able to travel whenever you want to and not having to rely on the train etc
All these benefits can only really be enjoyed to the full if you are a competent and safe driver. Our Driver Training is all about YOU. That is why we offer a range of driving lessons that suit your needs.
Nationally, less than 50% of people pass first time – but if you are taking quality driving lessons your can reasonably expect to improve the odds of passing first time to 70 -80 % The reason you will stand a much better chance of passing your driving test is because you have been prepared properly. Often poor quality or non professional driving lessons focus on learning a skill and practicing it until you “get it.” Well hot news – real roundabouts aren’t like this, everything is very orderly and polite, drivers are signalling and in the correct position. Our driver training will prepare you for driving independently and safely after you have passed your driving test.
Yes, it is necessary to learn the rules of the road and develop skills so that you can drive in the traffic system. But, much more importantly, we help our learner drivers to think for themselves, to make their own decisions and to reflect on their performance. A good driver isn’t necessarily the one who can park first time. The best drivers have developed a positive attitude to driving and can work out what to do in challenging situations. They don’t let the mistakes of others get to them – they keep a cool head under pressure.
Why Choose Duddon Learners?
Duddon Learners is an Independent Driving School owned and operated by Mark Houston. As an independent operator I am solely responsible for the quality and relevance of our driver training. I have worked in this industry for the last six years. Last year I completed a BTEC IV in Coaching for Driver Development, an award held by only 2% of Driving Instructors nationwide.

Coaching is the new buzz word in driver training – well, it’s actually been around a long time! it is not just asking a lot of questions that test knowledge or understanding. Coaching techniques will help to unlock your potential. Just like at school or college, your driver training will be pupil led. Together we will discover new things and get to grips with the complex task of driving. Your success is paramount. We want you to succeed and become a confident, safe driver.
