The Bristol and Bath Driving School 

Newmans Driving School founded 2001 and operated by myself Dave Newman. I am a sole trader and offer driving lessons in Bristol and Bath.

I qualified as a driving instructor in 1999, and since 2007 have maintained a first time pass rate of over 70%. 

I am considered very patient, please see my testimonial page.

To help in your progress I operate an ongoing assesment sheet. This will be explained to you as you go, so you will always know how you are progressing. This is the main reason I maintain an excellent first time pass rate.



How to book.

I prefer the online booking form as this ensures that I have all the information that I need.  As an incentive, I will give you a free two hour lesson if you book this way.

You can email

stating location and when you are free and I will get back ASAP.

Finally, you can text me on 07775567251 giving me the same information.

I do prefer one of these three methods, but if you need to call me please do so, if I cant answer please leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP.


Full, approx 4 weeks start. Daytime only nothing after 5pm

I always thought that learning to drive would be a daunting and a bit stressful, but other than the tests :)

I did enjoy learning!!

When I eventually get my own car i'll try to always be safe, considerate driver as you taught me, and in the meantime, I definitely feel like I am a more considerate and aware cyclist these days.



I was a bit overwhelmed yesterday to say a proper thank you, so wanted to drop you an email.  We have been very impressed with the calm and patient approach you have taken with teaching Felicity to drive since March, especially as she was so nervous to start with.  Thank you for boosting her confidence and making her into a safe and cautious driver.
We will be in touch again when our youngest comes of age!


Dave is an extremely thorough and methodical instructor and takes great pride in his work.  He is reliable and punctual and makes learning to drive a stress-free experience.  I passed first time (first person in my family to do so) but I feel like I learnt to drive rather than just learnt to pass the test!  I'm just sorry it took me so long to post this review!
