Here at Oaks Driving School, we are a family based school in Bolton covering the Bolton area. Our aim is to provide a client centred learning experience for all our pupils, with the goal of “safe driving for life.”


We endeavour to make the learning experience for all our pupils an enjoyable and shared venture. We encourage pupils to think about driving for themselves, rather than just being instructed. This is something we feel enables pupils to become safer drivers; especially once they have passed their driving test and take to the roads on their own.


Every lesson is structured to meet the individual needs of each pupil, using a variety of teaching and coaching techniques, specific to each and every pupil. Everybody learns and Digests information differently!


All lessons are Carried out by Mark, who is an Advanced driver with over 30 years driving experience. Mark spent 20 years working with Greater Manchester Police and also worked in the Insurance and Risk Management sector.


Mark is an Advanced driver, having achieved a grade A on the DVSA Cardington special test for driving instructors. He is a full member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) by exemption. A full member of the Driving Instructors Association (DIA) and a fully qualified DVSA Appproved Driving Instructor (ADI) Green badge.


We currently use the Brand new Audi A1 Citycarver as our preferred training vehicle. This vehicle has a higher seating position for greater vision awareness and many safety features to assist the learner driver, including lane departure warning, reverse view camera, for ease of use whilst carrying out manoeuvres,  front and rear driver assist sensors, front and rear Audi installed dash cameras and climate control for your individual comfort. Our vehicles are also professionally fitted with He-Man dual controls for your safety whilst learning to drive.

We carry fully comprehensive motor insurance, public liability and professional Indemnity insurance as standard.

All our lessons are priced competitively, so why not give us a call to discuss your needs.
