Total Driving School Mansfield, Nottinghamshire

quality tuition at competitive prices...

Welcome to Total Driving

All lessons are structured to make learning easier and to minimise, without 'cutting corners', the number of lessons required to pass your test.

There are a variety of courses from the usual 1 or 2 hour lessons a week to booster and intensive courses dependent on instructor availability.

It is best to keep your lessons consistent, having at least one lesson a week so that previous learning is not forgotten. If you have a significant break you will undoubtedly need to re-look at some lessons already covered. So try to be organised and consistent. 'Staying power' is your best friend. Your instructor will aim to provide training of the highest standards and quality. They will endeavour to be punctual, courteous and professional at all times. If you have any constructive ideas regarding aspects of the functioning of the driving school, or any driving related questions, then please let me know on lessons, by phone or e-mail.

Late Cancellations

 Late Cancellations: not currently applicable due to the adoption of client centred versatile working practices - just please be considerate.


Please note that because instructors lose out on business and income due to late cancellations it is necessary that you give 48 hours notice, at least 2 days, to avoid a late cancellation fee:

Cancelling the Day Prior to Your Appointment                                                    half lesson price

Same Day Cancellation                                                                                                   full lesson price

Pupils who have block booked must similarly give 48 hours notice.

Block Bookings must be used within 6 months but are part refundable before then taking into account usual rates.


If you find out late that you cannot afford to pay for the lesson, due to unforeseen circumstances, still take the lesson and pay on your following lesson which can be booked a week later if required.  You can call Marcus on 07736 232467, this is essential for late cancellations to make sure 

I know before setting off, otherwise a fee will be incurred: £10 inconvenience + £2 for each 5 minutes of travel time.
