Heath Sowden Driving School can deliver all of your driving tuition needs in and around Silloth, Wigton and Carlisle.

I have been a driving instructor since 1994, covering Silloth, Wigton, Carlisle and surrounding areas with your practical driving test being taken at Carlisle test centre. This gives you experience of both rural and city driving.

Learning to drive is a skill for life. My professional but friendly and relaxed methods of teaching will enable you to achieve this important goal quickly and cost effectively.

At only £30 per hour, my prices are extremely competitive without compromising on quality and professional standards. In addition, you can take advantage of my loyalty scheme.

By choosing Heath Sowden Driving School you will receive :

  • One to one tuition - sole use of the vehicle for the entirety of your lesson

  • Patient, friendly supportive teaching, with nervous pupils particularly responding to my teaching methods

  • Structured lessons in a well maintained driving school car with dual controls and air conditioning

  • A flexible approach to lesson bookings, with every effort made to fit in with your breaks at work and free periods at school/college

I offer a range of courses including standard lessons, motorway lessons, re-sits and refresher training, with lesson times of 60, 90 or 120 minutes.

Having pupils who have passed at 70 years young, I can testify it is never too late to gain the keys to your independence!
