    Good [ampm] and welcome to 1st Driving School

    Do you want to learn to drive?

    Want an instructor who will give you a great chance of passing 1st time?

    Your instructor Brian Ballantyne is a fully qualified and approved DVSA driving instructor. I qualified as a driving instructor in March 2003 running and owning Drive-rite driving school until 2010.

    Having then moved on to working for various franchised driving schools in the Paisley and surrounding area, I have taught many people to drive providing professional, reliable & enjoyable driving lessons.

    All lessons are tailored to the pupil’s individual needs and personality, so whether you are a complete beginner, nervous learner, failed your test or even just needing some refresher lessons, I have the experience to get you through your test and make you a safe driver for the rest of your life.

    Whether you are a complete novice getting behind the steering wheel for the very first time, or a more experienced learner who has already had a number of lessons or even have a full licence but want to top up on your skills and confidence, 1st Driving could be who you need!

    As an independent school, run by myself Brian Ballantyne, I provide a high quality of training with lessons tailored to suit the individual pupil so you can be taught at the best pace to suit you. I teach with a calm and patient manner which puts even the most nervous pupils at ease very quickly.

    In addition to the standard lessons, I also offer hazard perception & theory test help and advice, Post test tuition, Refresher and Motorway lessons.
