Hi, welcome to Bumps as we celebrate our 17th Anniversary! We would like to thank and congratulate the 15,500 pupils who have not only passed their driving tests with Bumps but kindly recommended us to so many of their family and friends. Here’s to the next 15,500 and we very much hope you will be part of our continuing success.

As one of the longest established and most respected independent driving schools in South Wales we believe the process of learning to drive should be enjoyable and fun. We want you to look forward to your driving lessons not dread them! There’s never been a better time to learn with us and sample our great manual and automatic instruction.


We currently don’t have any offers but please have a look at our very competitive prices on the Prices page. They include a prepaid block of 10hrs £310 and a discount for students £300

All our instructors are experienced, fully qualified ADI’s (Approved Driving Instructors) licensed by the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency) ensuring you receive the highest level of tuition. There are some driving schools who use partially qualified instructors who are still in training, that’s not our policy, we want you to be taught by the best so you become the best. All our instructors are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked for your peace of mind. We recognise the importance of learning to drive in a comfortable and safe environment, all our cars are fitted with dual controls, I know we’re called Bumps but we don’t want you going around bumping into things!

Our prices are competitive, we offer discounts for block bookings, with further discounts for those in education. We regularly have offers, if we have any offers you’ll see them highlighted above. *Gift Tokens are available for that special Birthday or Christmas present. Please be aware to start driving lessons you must have a valid UK provisional licence.

If you’re taking lessons with a friend or relative we’re also more than happy to assist in preparing you for your test. Why not have a couple of lessons with one of our instructors, taking advantage of their experience and knowledge, we’re here to help.

NEWS: As of June 2022 the waiting time for a practical test in Cardiff is around 5 months so we suggest prospective pupils pass their theory tests before commencing lessons. To cover the rising fuel costs we’ve unfortunately had to increase our lesson prices, if the price of fuel decreases then we’ll be dropping our prices accordingly. Currently can only offer lessons with a male instructor.

Our Manual car instructors cover a large area including;
Cardiff, Penarth, Barry, Caerphilly and Pontypridd

Our Automatic car instructor just covers the Cardiff area and his working week is Mon-Fri 7-5.

Sounds good? Go on give us a call, we promise you won’t regret it!

*Gift tokens are valid for 2 years from the date of purchase.
