Well Done To Everyone!

On Board Training New Test Passes

On Board Training New Test Passes

We’d just like to say a massive well done to all the students who have passed their driving test with On Board Training over the past couple of months! It is fantastic to see so many new drivers out on the road and driving under their own steam, fully trained and with the freedom that a full driving license gives.

Having been ranked as the UK’s number 1 driving school for a record 4th year in a row by users of FreeIndex we’re very grateful to each and every customer we’ve helped learn to drive over the past few years and want to also wish them a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As in previous years we are selling Xmas themed gift vouchers for both on road driving lessons plus out under age off road driving lessons for those aged 10-16. Be sure to visit our website for more details at

See you all in 2014!

STV News at 6 – Showcasing Our Under Age Driving Initiative

At the start of the week the team from STV’s News at 6 popped along to our under age driving facility in Hamilton to film a project we have been working with Hillhead High School in Glasgow.


As many people already know, we have been offering under age driving lessons for over a decade which have proven to be a huge success with both youngsters and parents alike. By educating road sense and the mechanical operation of the car at an age when the mind is learning and absorbing information at its peak, and before the complex life of a mid-teenager starts to kick in with music, relationships and exams looming we’ve found that pupils who gain driving experience early adapt to road driving once they are 17 and manage to get to driving test standard far quicker. So as well as being a huge fun experience of driving a real road car (with a fully trained and qualified driving instructor in the passenger seat for safety) it is a hugely rewarding educational tool as well.

The pupils from Hillhead’s 3rd year classes were along to get their first taste of car driving and every single one of them loved the experience and cant wait to come back again. To find out what the deputy head teacher at Hillhead had to say along with the pupils and OBT’s Brian Smith be sure to check out the short 2 minute news broadcast by clicking the photo above.

We offer our under age lessons to everyone, not just schools and youth groups – so if you’d like to book some lessons as a fun and educational treat or gift for someone, just give us a call free on 0800 999 2002 or visit us at to find out more.

Well done to Andrew Wright and Conor Healy who passed their test 1st time on Friday!

OBT Driving Instructor Brian Gray helped Conor Healy pass his driving test on the very 1st attempt Hamilton test centre on the 14th of June 2013 OBT Driving Instructor Billy Mitchell helped Andrew Wright from Garrowhill pass his driving test 1st time at Baillieston test centre on the 17th June 2013

We love it when our students are given the happy news of passing their test, even more so when it’s the first time they’ve taken the test!

On Friday we had another 2 pupils take their practical driving test and both completed it with flying colours!

Well done to Andrew Wright and Conor Healy who join the ranks of thousands of other happy drivers who have passed with On Board Training.
