Student Reviews

Would highly recommend
Would highly recommend Shift for anyone wanting to learn to drive. My instructor Alex was amazing, helped me become more confident on the roads and was very patient with me, after being let down by previous instructors Alex was able to work flexibly to me even under a restricted time limit.

Great Instructors!
I’m writing this honest review to encourage everyone who wants to learn or improve their skills to work with Alex from Shift. Alex is one of the most knowledgeable, serious, hard-working, and excellent at what he does, and I can't thank him enough for being part of my success journey, all the best mate.

Highly Recommend
I’ve been super happy using Shift, Had a poor experience with another instructor when I was 17 which had stopped me picking things up again until now at 32. My nerves were immediately were put at ease on the first lesson and everything after was easy.

Nathan ErringtonLearner Driver

Excellent instructors and felxibility
Could not fault Shift in any way my instructor was amazing who helped me pass, had been driving previously and had taken a break due to COVID restrictions. If I was do my exam again I would use this company again.

How many lessons will I need?

The number of lessons you’ll need will depend on your individual circumstances and how quickly you learn. On average, it takes around 40-50 hours of driving lessons to pass the test, but some people may need more or less depending on their previous experience, confidence level, and ability to learn.

Do you have female instructors?

Yes, we do have female instructors available. When you book your driving lessons, you can request a female instructor if you prefer.

Do you teach test routes?

Your instructor will show you some popular test routes, but they won’t necessarily be the exact routes. Our theory is, when you have finished your training with Shift, you should be able to drive on any road in the United Kingdom. This isn’t to say that your instructor won’t show you any complex roundabouts or hazards in the area though.

Is there a long wait for driving lessons?

We do our best to accommodate all our students’ needs and offer flexible scheduling. However, availability may vary depending on the location and the time of year.

What other areas do you cover?

At the moment we provide driving lessons in Newcastle, Gateshead and surrounding areas. Additionally, we are actively seeking instructors in other areas. Do you know someone who has what it takes? Click here to visit our become a driving instructor page.
