Residential Driving Courses – Stay at our hotel in Blackpool while you learn & pass

Our residential courses are based in Blackpool and offer the opportunity to receive one to one training from our fully qualified and experienced instructors, whilst staying on site at our hotel in Blackpool.

By staying with us on site, we can maximise the amount of training you receive, which can be between 2 to 10 days based on on your experience, and ability to learn.

We work to a maximum of 6 hours per day on a one to one basis, with a fully qualified DSA approved instructor displaying the DSA ADI GREEN BADGE.

Stay at Walkden House in Blackpool

Your accommodation will be booked for you at the:

WALKDEN HOUSE HOTEL
17 HORNBY ROAD, BLACKPOOL, FY1 4QG

The hotel is owned by Julie & Chris Robins (one of our course instructors) and you’ll enjoy their friendly hospitality and excellent home cooking!

The hotel can be viewed on Trip Advisor where it has received some “excellent” reviews!

Your accommodation is booked for Bed & Breakfast, however, a two course evening meal is available if required at an extra cost of £8.

All rooms are either double or twin, so if you wish to bring a friend or partner, this is available at a small extra fee.

WHERE WOULD I TAKE MY TEST?

Your lessons and test will take place around the Blackpool area, and we will ensure you have a good knowledge of the local area in the build up to your exam day.

Before you book this course, you must have passed your Driving Theory Test. We can help with this by providing access to our online theory training software. Please call us on 01772 600176 for further details.
