Your local driving school in Suffolk
Have you been searching for a local driving instructor in your area? Our Waveney school of motoring delivers driving lessons in Lowestoft, Oulton Broad, Carlton Colville and the areas in-between.
We’re a family-led independent driving school. Unlike the national brands that also offer driving tuition near you, we are based locally in East Anglia.
Our patient and friendly instructors are ready to coach you from nervous novice right through to passing your test with flying colours! But we won’t just teach you how to pass your test – we’ll teach you good driving habits that will set you up for a lifetime of safe driving.
How to choose the right driving instructor
We understand that it can be tricky to find the perfect instructor for your needs.
Firstly, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with choice. Secondly, it can be very difficult to tell the difference between one school and another.
Well, we think it’s impossible to know for certain whether an instructor is right for you until you’ve actually taken a lesson with them. That’s why we give you your first session half-price! No need to block book hours of sessions in advance. In fact, there’s no obligation to continue taking lessons with us at all!

Block booking driving lessons deals can be a great way to shave money off the cost of lessons. But many other driving schools will expect you to pre-pay for 10 hours of tuition before you’ve even met your instructor. What happens if then discover that you don’t like them?
At How-2-Drive, we do things differently. All you have to do is book your introductory two-hour lesson. You pay for one hour of tuition and we’ll give you the second hour free!
Once you’ve met your instructor and you’re confident we can help you pass you can then choose to pay by the hour or unlock our block booking discounts.
…or perhaps you’ve already taken classes with another school and are now waiting to take your test? No problem. We offer test preparation and refresher courses too!
