Driving Lessons with Rio Driving School

If you’re looking for a high quality elite driving school or a driving instructor local to you that will cater to your specific needs, you don’t need to look any further; Rio Driving School is for you. We pride ourselves in providing candidates with the best driving lessons possible from one of the best driving schools the Midlands have to offer.

We teach everyone to drive including:

  • People who are extremely ANXIOUS/NERVOUS about learning to drive

  • People who have taken their driving test more than 5 times and not succeeded in passing yet

  • People who need evening/weekend driving lessons

  • People with some kinds of learning difficulties

  • People who need driving lessons in a foreign language

Manual & Automatic Driving Lessons

Learning to drive in a manual car is not for everyone, so we give you the option to choose to take lessons in a manual or automatic car. People choose to learn in an automatic for a variety of reasons from those who have had lessons before and struggle with the gears, to people with disabilities or those who are nervous. Learning in an automatic car is often considered easier and may make it quicker to get ready for your test. We provide automatic driving lessons in Walsall, Wolverhampton and Willenhall.

What we do is

Provide a short training course (typically 40 hours for complete beginners or less for more experienced novice drivers). We use the latest driver coaching skills and some psychological training, so that by the end of the first driving lesson with us, you’re already feeling much calmer.

And this means

You can drive confidently and remain safe on the road. Typically 9 out of 10 people pass their test first time with us. Just imagine all the benefits of being able to drive WHERE you want, WHEN you want!

Customer Reviews

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at our customer reviews.

If you are looking for the best driving School, you don’t need to look any longer, because this is the best driving school. My experience with Paul was quite the journey. He did taught me with the greatest patience ever, always reassuring me when I made mistakes and also making sure I was ok. He listened to my feedback and advised me on where I needed to improve, whether it was reverse parking or always checking the mirrors before signalling, Paul was there to guide me throughout the whole process. There aren’t enough words to thank him and the school for all the knowledge I have learnt. You will gain the skills of a lifetime. I am so glad I chose this school to teach me how to drive!
