From Our Website

Most people coming to this site are looking for a Driving School or Instructor based in Wigan, St Helens, and Warrington. I will assume this is why you're here too, and I'll also assume you want a friendly, patient & professional Instructor. This is exactly what you'll get from Martyn Wedge ADI. Based in the Wigan borough, I am in the perfect location to deliver driving lessons to areas such as Wigan, Ashton-in-Makerfield, St. Helens, Leigh, Atherton, Warrington etc. I am extremely proud of the reputation I have built, and take pride in delivering what I believe to be the best quality lessons you'll find in the area.


Martyn Wedge ADI (based in Wigan) I understand that you're an individual and as such everyone learns at different speeds and respond to different teaching methods. I take care to ensure that you receive the best possible tuition to ensure that you become a safe driver for life and not just to get you through the "L" test. Following a well-planned and structured course is vital to efficient learning, passing your test, and more importantly. Whilst I do follow a course laid out by the DSA, I individually tailor each lesson to your requirements.


There will be a 100 deposit payable for all Block Bookings (reduced to 60 for the 120 course), which must be paid within 7 days of booking. This deposit is non-refundable if you cancel at anytime, before you start, or during the course.


I actively encourage my clients to start to study for the Theory and Hazard Perception Test right from the start, and even before your first driving lesson, the sooner you start the study the sooner you will be ready for the tests and have a great understanding of the rules and regulations of the roads. There are two parts to the "theory" test, part one consisting of a multiple choice "quiz" and the second being the hazard perception test. For the multiple choice test, you will answer 50 questions covering topics that cover alertness; attitude; safety; road signs, and much more.
