As the news has covered at length we are in the grips of a cost of living crisis which is gripping the nation. In April many of the costs on which the lesson price is based will be increasing which has prompted a review of lesson pricing.

Currently I offer a lesson price of £56.25 per 90 minute lesson, with instructor training matching that lesson price. I also offer a discount of around 7% for block bookings of five lessons at £262.50. However, the costs of living are going up; my fixed term energy tariff expires in March and the price for the times I charge my car are set to double.

I understand that I am not the only one facing a cost increase and I’ve tried as hard as I can to minimise the impact since I left Pass N Go Driving School. I feel it’s unfair to preserve a discount for those who can afford to buy lessons in bulk while putting the price up for those who are buying week by week because they can’t afford to buy a pack.

My price was set to be below the local average when I left the national school which I’ve tried to maintain. As such I’ve done research in to the published local prices which average around £39-£42 per hour for automatic in Sheffield.

New Prices from 1st April 2023.

As a result on the 1st of April this year prices for driving lessons will increase as follows:


Driving Lesson – 1.5 Hour

Driving Lesson – 7.5h Block

Instructor Training – Hour

Instructor Training – Pack

Pink Licence Training

Old Price

£56.25 (£37.50 per hour)

£262.50 (£52.50/lesson)

£37.50 per hour


£30.00 per hour

New Price

£57.50 (£38.33 per hour)

£273.00 (£54.60/lesson)

£39.00 per hour



Purchases made before the price rise comes into force will be at the old price and will be protected.

Kind regards,
