Nottingham and Derby Driving Instructors Blame Insurance For Dwindling Learner Driver Numbers

A number of Driving Schools and test centres have recently pointed the finger at insurance companies as one of the entities responsible for contributing to the increased cost of people learning to drive and take driving lessons throughout the Midlands, including Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield and Burton upon Trent, according to ITV.

As an example, the West Midlands experienced a huge reduction in the number of tests being taken.  More than 16500 fewer tests were taken in the year to March 2013, a drop of more than twelve per cent.  And this trend is repeated across the country. Mint Driving School strives to make sure that we provide competitively priced driving lessons across Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield and Burton upon Trent and furthermore, our driving instructors always aim to provide a tailored approach to driving lessons, helping students to get to pass level as safely and swiftly as possible.
