Deciding on a driving school in Wrexham
We get that you’re looking for a driving school who:
- Builds your confidence
- Makes learning fun
- Won’t charge a fortune!
For that reason, here are 4 easy steps to make sure you choose the right driving school in Wrexham
1. Have a look at reviews online
Reading online reviews of the instructors in the local area is pretty much the number one way to understand what to expect from the nearby driving schools in Wrexham. Just make sure that you read reviews collated by independent sources, like Google reviews.
2. Beware of terms and conditions
If you’re like most people, the chances are you usually tick the box to say you’ve read the terms and conditions even if you haven’t. But in this scenario, it’s important that you read them carefully. Some driving schools have hidden policies, like making your driving lessons expire if you don’t use them all within a short timeframe. Don’t get caught out!
3. Make sure you can switch instructors
Check that your driving school in Wrexhamcan pair you up with a new instructor easily if you decide you want to swap.
4. Avoid long waiting times
The last thing you want is to book your driving lessons and then find out that you can’t get started for another few weeks! Many driving schools in Wrexhamwon’t tell you their waiting times upfront unless you ask directly. So again, don’t get caught out!
Deciding on a test centre

Top driving test tips from instructors in Wrexham
Local driving instructors in Wrexham have shared thier insider tips for passing your test.
1. Practise driving on rural roads
Our driving instructors in Wrexham have highlighted rural roads as a tricky ""one to watch"" as you’re allowed to drive at the national speed limit, but sometimes that’s not the appropriate speed for the conditions.
Take extra time to practise judging a sensible speed when on a country road.
2. Drive defensively
When you’re driving in urban settings you need to be aware that not all drivers will drive well, or even follow the highway code! Make sure that you anticipate the behaviour of other drivers and adapt your own driving accordingly.
3. Directions aren’t the be all and end all.
You’ll receive directions from both the examiner and a sat nav at different points in your driving test. If you realise you’re in the wrong lane at the last minute, it might be dangerous to correct yourself. If that’s the case, it’s fine to make a wrong turn - it’s more important to drive safely than to follow directions accurately, and our local driving instructors say that you’re unlikely to be penalised.
Deciding on manual or automatic driving lessons
One question you'll need to answer before you begin your lessons is: Do I want to take manual or automatic driving lessons?.
Manual licence holders are able to drive both manual and automatic cars, however, automatic drivers are stuck with automatic cars only.Flexibility is the main plus point with learning in a manual.
Manual driving lessons are also cheaper, as there are more manual driving instructors available. Some drivers prefer the control a manual can give while driving too.
Taking automatics driving lessons may allow you to pass faster as you have less to learn such as clutch control.On top of this, the lack of a clutch pedal makes automatic cars easier to drive in heavy traffic, so it you’re going to be getting a car to run you around Wrexham town centre, you may well prefer an automatic.
There are pros and cons to both, so it's worth spending some time to research and decide before you start.
