5 Reasons to Choose Us

Some things to consider when choosing your Driving School


By far the best method is a personal recommendation from a friend or relative who can give first hand experience.

Recommendations supply us with most of our work - something we're very proud of. All our students find learning to drive a positive and enjoyable experience.


A proportion of our work is from students that have decided to change from their present school for to a variety of reasons. These are some of the reasons we hear when talking to new students

"my instructor sometimes takes phone calls during a lesson instead of looking after me"

"I receive little or no feedback to enable me to improve"

"they are often late or cancel my lesson"

“we only drive for about half the time of the lesson”

"they talk more about themselves than about my driving"

Does this sound familiar?

Here at The L Factory we offer realistic lesson prices. We also invest in Continued Professional Development to keep skills relevant and up-to-date.


There are many ways that driving schools try to attract new students. The most common way is by offering ‘cheap’ lesson prices which on the face of it sound too good to be true - they probable are! Some will offer free lessons and other gimmicks to entice you. You now have the task of sifting through all these offers, but remember that very few things in life are free and you generally get what you pay for.


As already mentioned your choice will take time, but will be worth the effort. Your decision could be a very expensive mistake and at worst it could lead to you giving up learning to drive.

Whatever your choice, we hope it is the correct one and would like to wish you a positive learning experience along with safe driving for life.

Best wishes,

Karen Smith, Owner of The L Factory
