More About Us

Our Background & Philosophy

COLES School of Motoring was born out of a simple idea: bringing high quality, accessible and affordable education to the entire community. Our unique approach to client centred learning and top quality facilities makes COLES School of Motoring one of the best driving schools in Dorset. We invite you to explore our engaging and diverse course schedule,

Many driving schools still used the dictorial approach to training

Do this, Do that and you'll pass your test. Here at COLES School of Motoring we understand that learning comes from within and that our pupils thoughts and feelings are what forge their behaviour. by analising this we can make our pupils safer drivers during the more relaxed and comfortable lesson surroundings that we offer.


 Essential Tips for Beginners

Licences can take 4 to 6 weeks to process. Apply in good time to ensure you can start training on the date you would like..

The Theory Test should not be considered an easy test. Study hard and pass your Theory Test as soon as you are ready.

Theory training can be done prior to your 17th birthday. There are lots of free applications out there. Don't just use Apps on your phone. Publications like The Highway Code, Know your Traffic signs and Driving-The Essential Skills are also recommended reading.

A Practical Driving Test CAN NOT BE BOOKED until you pass your theory test. Do not let the theory become a stumbling block!
