Type of Driving Lessons in Sunderland

We offer 3 types of driving lesson in Sunderland: Weekly, Passplus and Motorway.

Weekly Driving Lessons

We have found that learner drivers prefer taking driving lessons in Sunderland on a weekly basis. This is not only popular but in our opinion the best way to keep a high standard of learning. This also means that you are more likley to be able to book the same driving lessons slot each week, if this is what you want.

Statistics show that new drivers are far more likely to be involved in accidents and other road traffic incidents than any other group of drivers. However thorough your lessons and tests have been, it can take years of actual driving experience to become familiar with all road and traffic situations. Pass Plus offers you a way to be a safer driver, save money on your car insurance and get the confidence that comes from being truly familiar with all road conditions

Boosting Your Confidence

It is one thing to be sitting in a car, knowing that the instructor sitting next to you is vastly experienced and can help you out with any new situations. Facing those situations on your own can be daunting – and nervous drivers are more prone to making mistakes. By taking the Pass Plus exam, you'll get experience of driving in towns, different weather conditions, dual carriageways and motorways. By facing these situations with an experienced person alongside you, you can get the knowledge you need.

Be a Safer Driver

Nervous and inexperienced drivers are more likely to be involved in accidents. By getting experience of different road conditions and extra tuition about the hazards and complications of driving on busy roads, you will be less nervous and more experienced. That means you'll feel safer – and be safer.

Motorway Lessons

Motorways. To the newly qualified driver they can seem like a very daunting place. Everything is faster. Other drivers behave differently. There are more conventions, hazards and rules to get to grips with. Facing these new conditions is scary, and many people never even make the leap. But remember how you felt the first time you sat behind the wheel of a car? How you didn't know what any of the controls did? Learning to drive on a motorway is much less of a challenge than learning to drive in the first place. Our specialist motorway instruction lessons are a way for you to get past that hurdle and onto the motorways.


I had been learning to drive with a previous school for a long time, the driving instructor didnt teach me very much. Choosing Bill Plant was the best decision I could have made. I took very few lessons and passed first time. I couldnt recommend them enough. Kev - Sunderland.
