Number of People Taking Driving Lessons Across Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield and Burton upon Trent

ITV News recently reported that the number of people learning to drive across the Midlands has dropped significantly in the last year.  Figures of learner drivers taking driving lessons in Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield, Burton upon Trent and the wider region going onto take their driving test fell by 23,000 in the year up to March 2013, compared to the year before.

Pass rates remained the same for both years at around 40 per cent.  But with the cost for learning to drive now thought to be more than two thousand seven hundred pounds, this is something that might be dissuading learner driver from pursuing their test.

Here at Mint Driving School, our driving instructors work with learner drivers across Derby, Nottingham, Burton upon Trent and Chesterfield with an objective to get them to pass level as swiftly and effectively as possible.  For more information, please get in touch.
