About Mint

In a nutshell, we provide a great value, safe and professional driving school, providing driving lessons across Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield and Burton upon Trent to anyone who wants to learn.  Whether you’re a complete beginner, an existing driver wanting to brush up on your skills, or perhaps you’re looking to complete the Pass Plus course, Mint Driving School's professional driving instructors are happy to teach you.

We want you to get the most out of your time and money spent with us, so we’ll create a course that’s adapted to your individual needs – taking into account your existing skills, strengths, and weaknesses.  After a course with Mint you’ll be capable, safe, confident, and ready to go.

Who we are…

Mint is a fresh, exciting and energetic driving school – we’re as excited about teaching as you are about learning.  Driving is a skill that you’ll enjoy for the rest of your life, and that’s why we enjoy teaching you.  We’re passionate about giving learners the ability and confidence to get out there on the open roads.

All of our instructors are registered with the Department of Transport (Driving Standards Agency) and are licensed to give driving tuition.  It’s not just our students who take tests - every instructor at Mint has passed comprehensive tests and is regularly re-assessed to make sure they meet the DSA’s very high standards.  And we wouldn’t have it any other way – we want you to enjoy learning, but we’re also serious about teaching you in the safest and most professional way.  All of our cars are geared for safety too – they’re clean, modern, maintained to the highest standards, fitted with dual controls, and fully insured for you to drive.

Where we are…

Mint Driving School is a Midlands based driving school. We take learners from Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield, Sheffield, Rotherham, Leicester, Loughborough, Burton upon Trent, Mansfield, Birmingham and all of the surrounding towns and villages.
