In line with current Scottish Government guidelines - SP Driving School is temporarily closed. A potential restart date of August 24th has been given to restart driving lessons but this is not guaranteed. Currently there is a large backlog of students so waiting times are expected to be longer than normal.
If you are a key worker with a booked test and need immediate help, please call/txt 07392832547. You must have a booked test for me to able to provide lessons.
With waiting times for re-sits becoming longer and longer it is more important than ever before you are well prepared for the driving test.

LEARNER DRIVING LESSONS
Whether you are jumping into the drivers seat for the first time, had a little practise in mums car or even had other instructors in the past - I can help you accomplish the necessary skills to be a lifelong safe member of our roads.
Using quiet, wide roads to begin with we will gradually build your skills and confidence on a wide variety of roads, junctions and situations across the city of Perth, our neighbouring country roads and you will have to drive around the Broxden roundabout (it really isn't that tough, trust me).
Yes, we will of course prep for the eventual driving test you have to take, but learning to drive is so, so much more than just passing a test. You will need to embrace the four pivotal elements of a truly safe driver : Patience, Anticipation, Responsibility and Confidence (that's right PARC).
What you bring to your lesson is just as important as what I can teach you and remember that there is no such thing as failure, it's simply training for future success.
Lessons are held daily in Two Hour appointments up till 10pm Tuesday to Sunday.
Demand for lessons in Perth has always been quite high so I may not have spaces straight away but get in touch and I'll try to give you an estimated wait time.
So, are you ready? Then smash that button below and tell me what you need....
There are lots of reasons why you would come back to a driving instructor once you passed the test.
Maybe you've recently moved here from another country and need to convert a license.
If could have been a while since you've driven and need a boost.
Has something knocked your confidence and you need a helping hand to get you back behind the wheel.
Post Test courses are a personal reason and as such each session would be personally tailored to you and your needs.
Give me a call and let's find out together what we need to do to get you back up to speed (pun intended!)
FREE progress tracking APPS
Learning a language, how to play the piano, rewiring a house and finding out what that plant actually is that you've been watering for three years only to discover its a weed - yep there is an app for everything!
There are a lot of apps for the Theory Test, most of them will cost you a few pounds to unlock the goodies. Theory Test Pro is full featured and free for all my students. You'll get an access code to use on their App or on a website on your computer. If your struggling I can also see how you are progressing and give you some help if you need it.
Keeping track of your lessons and when the next one is, how much and when you've paid, if you've prepaid how many hours credit you have, what progress you are making and what do you need to work on - all of that is taken care of with MyDriveTime.
Download the App to your phone and you have complete access to your personal journey to your license.
'Steve is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor, with a great attitude. I really liked our driving lessons and I learned a lot. I couldn’t recommend him more.'
'Feels like I'm leaving a review for a mate as I feel like we genuinely bonded over the short 1 and 2 hour sessions. Steve's an amazing driver that knows his stuff and more importantly he's a better teacher.'
'Steve has been the best driving instructor I could have asked for. I started with him with no experience and he took me all the way to my test.'
Learning to drive on today's busy roads isn't the easiest of things and finding a driving instructor to help make that journey a bit more successful, can be a job in its own right.
SP Driving School started in May 2016 and whether it’s with those first steps as a new driver, boosting your confidence or even just getting back behind the wheel, I’ve helped hundred's of people find success with driving lessons in Perth.
A top rated driving instructor should be calm, patient and professional and with over 70 five-star reviews at Yell.com, you don’t have to take my word for it.
I work till late 6 days a week including weekends with tailored tuition and coaching in a clean, modern car with all the safety features you expect.
Lots of info below or get in touch for anything else - thanks for stopping by.
SP Driving School has fully prepared itself for the eventual reopening of driving lessons to the general public following current Scottish government and DVSA guidelines. However, none of these measures matter if we ignore the basic principles.
If you are feeling unwell with a high temperature, new persistent cough or loss of sense of/change in taste and smell you should not come to your lesson and immediately follow the guidelines regarding Test and Protect.
All students and myself must assess their own risk with regard to continuing lessons and making sure that any subsequent changes are taken into consideration before continuing with lessons.
Just like at your local shop, a personal cleaning station in the boot stocked with sanitiser, wipes, gloves and masks.
All students will be given a forehead temp check before each lesson (and yes I will scan myself if you want too).
All students should wash their hands thoroughly before leaving your home for a lesson. You will be asked to sanitise before getting in the car too.
We cannot operate social distancing in the car so it may be necessary to wear a face covering, they are compulsory for all driving tests. You should bring your own but disposable ones are available in the cleaning station. Sorry but 'The Batman' one is mine.
Between each driver change (including myself) the car will be wiped down with anti-viral cleaning materials on all touch points - controls, handles etc.
Seats, pedals and mats will be sprayed with an anti-viral spray between lessons and a deep cleaning fog system used daily to get to those parts that hands cannot.

To improve circulation of air in an enclosed space windows will remain ajar throughout driving lessons. To stop the weather getting in I've fitted wind deflectors to keep us dry and reduce the noise.
THE TRAINING CAR
The new shape Ford Fiesta registered in July 2019
1.5 Turbo Diesel engined with an ECO mode it's both quiet and nimble as well as being fuel efficient.
Titanium models are packed with goodies - Rear Privacy Glass, power side mirrors, auto dipping rear view mirror, dual climate control, auto stop/start and keyless entry and ignition.
A spacious cockpit with great all around visibility. I've added wind deflectors to the windows so we can get a bit of fresh air without getting rained on - nice bonus.
A six speed transmission with a gated reverse, meaning you can't go into reverse by accident, very handy for new hands getting to grips with gears.
Probably the most important safety feature in a learner vehicle are these, industry standard He-Man dual controls. If your late to brake, I'll be there for you. You'll probably notice a few extra mirrors too.
Oh my, this car has a tonne. Automatic wipers, lights and high beams (they are cool). It's got this camera that can read the road and tell you what the speed limit is as well as keep you in the lane if you drift. Then there's another camera showing you behind for reversing, oh and it's got those beepers for parking too beep, beep, beeeeeeep.

HD Dashcams are recording the action around is in Perth throughout your driving lesson, with the added bonus of being able to review footage as a training aid if needed.
