Green Lanes Driving School         
is based in Frome, Somerset.

 Learning to drive can be a nerve-racking experience so I find that it is very important to put people at ease and try to make the lessons as much fun as possible.
Extremely nervous people is one of my specialties.
 
I strive to teach my students how to drive in a safe manner as well as teaching the benefits of ecological as well as economical driving.
These ways are not exclusive to, but complement each other.

I offer lessons in MANUAL vehicles only. 

THE PRACTICAL TEST WILL CHANGE FROM THE 4/12/17!
The new test will include the following changes:
1. Forward bay parking and then reversing out of the bay.
2. Reverse bay park and then driving out of the bay
3. Reverse (parallel) park
4. Pulling over onto the right hand side of the road, reversing 2 car lengths and then rejoining the flow of traffic when it is safe to do so.
5. 4/5 candidates will be required to follow a SatNav for the duration of the independent drive (20min)
    1/5 candidates will be asked to follow signs to a specific destination.



So If you require lessons from scratch, top up lessons or a refresher course
Green Lanes Driving School is THE school for you.  
 
"I cannot thank or recommend Jerry at Green Lanes enough.  After having a nasty car accident a couple of years ago I was horribly nervous in cars and dreaded getting in one let alone driving.  Jerry has been wonderfully patient, explaining everything (time and time and time again when necessary) using diagrams to help me figure things out and generally bolstering me along when I thought I wouldn't be able to do it anymore.  He talks you through everything in terms that are easy to understand and in ways that stick with you (to the point I could hear Jerry talking me through things during my test - he wasn't there!!)  Whether you're a starter, refresher, nervous driver or not I would highly recommend Jerry to anyone learning to drive."

      "I would like to say a huge thank you to Jerry for teaching me how to drive
His teaching methods are excellent and he explains everything in a clear and easy to understand way using diagrams and a miniature car toy which helps a lot for the manoeuvres!  Jerry’s fantastic patience, easy going personality and calm approach ensures you feel very comfortable and makes the lessons enjoyable.
Throughout my time with Jerry I found he was a very flexible and willing to adapt to numerous times to suit.                    His car is always well maintained and great to drive. Jerry will always go the extra mile for you, ensuring you can deal with “real life” situations confidently and answering any questions/problems you have.
I would recommend Jerry to anyone who is just learning to drive, I am even having extra lessons for motor way practice!"

"Jerry is a fantastic teacher - patient, easygoing, and very skilled. He is very perceptive, adapts to the needs of the situation, and ensures continual improvement.
I passed my test first time with one minor thanks to his tuition, and I loved every lesson. Highly recommended.
