About Our Driving Lessons

Whether you are just fresh off your 18th birthday, want to refresh your knowledge when it comes to driving, or in any other situation, Cortis Motoring School is the ideal choice for you.

You can choose to learn on either manual or automatic cars, depending on your preference, and you can also choose your own instructor depending on what you are most comfortable with.

We do not only teach you the basics of driving but we will also teach you all the rules and regulations regarding the road and your car. We will teach you about road safety and we will help you build confidence on the road, which is the most important thing in order to nurture your skill.


From the very first lessons, we teach you what to do before even starting the car and you will be able to drive and experience the road immediately. We will not waste your time and will provide you with a three-month course that will be all you need in order to ace your test.

We teach you car handling, switching gears, we teach you how to park in any situation and how to move safely from one lane to the other, three-point turns, reversing, and more. We teach you to stay calm in traffic and we also see to it that you know how to stop safely during an emergency.

After all this, we will ensure that you gain confidence and that you are truly relaxed yet alert behind the wheel, which is the key to becoming an excellent driver and acing your test on the first try. 

We have been in the business since 1970 and we boast of an excellent pass rate. If you are interested in learning how to drive a 125cc motorbike, you can take advantage of the government scheme that we adhere to.
