Hi, welcome to Bumps as we celebrate our 16th Anniversary! We would like to thank and congratulate the 15,000 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 15,000 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.

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 also have seasonal 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: 1st November 2021 Some disappointing news, the DVSA were hoping to increase the number of practical tests their examiners carried out daily from 7 to 8. This would have helped to reduce the waiting time for a practical test, unfortunately the DVSA and the examiners union couldn’t come to an agreement. This means the current waiting time for practical test is still around 24 weeks. Our lady instructor has decided to go independent so is no longer with us. We are actively trying to recruit a replacement but until we do unfortunately we can only offer lessons with a male instructor.

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

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

*Christmas and New Year Offers are valid until the end of January 2022, only available to new Bumps pupils and only one offer allowed per pupil. Offers are not available to prospective pupils who have booked a test and are looking for just one block of lessons leading up to their test or for qualified drivers after refresher lessons. **Gift tokens are valid for 2 years from the date of purchase.
