Welcome to Grange Park School of Motoring!
Established in 1991 by our principal Instructor, Joanne Barton, we have over 21 years' of experience in the driver training industry. Joanne is a very patient lady Instructor, and is D.S.A. Approved (Grade 5). She also holds the Diploma in Driving Instruction, is a DIAmond Advanced Motorist and a Pass Plus Instructor.
We at Grange Park School of Motoring, have lots of experience in teaching people of all ages and abilities (we have even taught people with severe Dyslexia). We also cater for very nervous students. We have an excellent pass rate of over 90% for the practical test (the national average pass rate is 42%!) We also offer help with study for the Theory and Hazard Perception tests, which most of our students pass on the first attempt.
We offer very patient, reliable, relaxed and friendly structured tuition on a one-to-one basis (at no time is there more than one student in the car!) We recommend weekly lessons of one or two hours duration which we have found most people prefer. Although we are unable to offer fully-intensive one or two week courses, we can offer semi-intensive courses over several weeks, for those who wish to pass their test quicker, which we feel is more productive. We cover most of the Bolton area.
From beginner to advanced, we structure the course to suit the individual, and can also offer refresher courses to those who, for one reason or another, may not have driven for a while and feel they need their confidence re-building. Pass Plus courses are also available for those who have recently passed their practical driving test and wish to gain more experience behind the wheel. If this course is completed successfully, then not only will you have gained further experience, but you may also be eligible for a discount on your motor insurance.
Anyone interested in advanced driving courses or training to become a Driving Instructor can contact us for information and advice on training courses available through local ORDIT registered Driving Schools.

The vehicle used for tuition is the TOYOTA AURIS 2.0 Turbo Diesel. It is fitted with Dual Controls for your safety, air conditioning for your comfort, and many other modern gadgets (including automatic wipers and headlights), to make learning to drive a pleasure. It is a dream to drive and, being diesel-powered, is much less likely to stall than a petrol engined car (an obvious advantage when you are learning to drive!)
