Driving Lessons in Walsall & Cannock with Rio Driving School

If you’re looking for a high quality elite driving school or a driving instructor local to you that will cater to your specific needs, you don’t need to look any further; Rio Driving School is for you. We pride ourselves in providing candidates with the best driving lessons possible from one of the best driving schools the Midlands have to offer. Our experienced instructors have excellent local area knowledge and offer lessons in Walsall, Willenhall, Cannock, Featherstone, Lichfield, Wolverhampton, West Bromwich, Sutton Coldfield, Hednesford, Wednesbury and surrounding areas.

We teach everyone to drive including:

  • People who are extremely ANXIOUS/NERVOUS about learning to drive

  • People who have taken their driving test more than 5 times and not succeeded in passing yet

  • People who need evening/weekend driving lessons

  • People with some kinds of learning difficulties

  • People who need driving lessons in a foreign language

Manual & Automatic Driving Lessons in Walsall

Learning to drive in a manual car is not for everyone, so we give you the option to choose to take lessons in a manual or automatic car. People choose to learn in an automatic for a variety of reasons from those who have had lessons before and struggle with the gears, to people with disabilities or those who are nervous. Learning in an automatic car is often considered easier and may make it quicker to get ready for your test. We provide automatic driving lessons in the Walsall area at this current time.

What we do is

Provide a short training course (typically 45 hours for complete beginners or less for more experienced novice drivers). We use the latest driver coaching skills and some psychological training, so that even by the end of your first driving lesson with us, you’re already feeling much calmer and looking forward to your next driving lesson with us.

And this means

You can drive confidently and remain safe on the road. Typically 9 out of 10 people pass their test first time with us. Just imagine all the benefits of being able to drive WHERE you want, WHEN you want!
