Learning to drive is an important event in anyone’s life. It doesn’t matter if you’re a total beginner, if you’ve tried to pass before and failed, or if you want to take an intensive driving course and pass your test as quickly as possible. RED Driving School in Portland will guide you through the learning process to make sure you reach driving test standard in the shortest time possible.
We’ve even developed RED’s Road Brain Trainer, which RED learners can use free of charge and which can help increase your chance of passing the practical test by 14%.
“I’ve been a driving instructor for over 20 years. I started out as a new driver instructor and now also train people to become driving instructors, so I’ve seen it all!
The test and driving regulations has changed over the years and at RED we really focus on ensuring that our learners are 100% confident and competent with independent driving.
As a parent myself I understand that patience is key through the instruction process, everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. It’s all about encouraging progression in a way that benefits the student and manages expectations. There’s nothing like the feeling when a student passes or achieves their goals – it’s a process you go through together.
I’ve taught thousands of people over the years and whether your aim is passing your driving test or refreshing certain skills, I’d say go for it! The freedom and confidence that safe driving gives you is simply incredible.”
All of our driving instructors in Portland are registered with the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency for your peace of mind and safety
We don’t just help you pass the practical driving test, but we also help with the theory too..

As a beginner learning to drive in Portland, you can’t beat practicing on different types of roads in and around the area to broaden your experience. Our lessons are designed to ensure you become a safe and confident driver. We’ll cover off everything to help you pass your test, including:
If you gave up on driving because you didn’t get on with your instructor, if your practical test was a nightmare or if life simply got in the way, you are still way ahead of a lot of people. You’ve probably got a lot of experience and skills under your belt already; it is just that your experience just needs a bit of tweaking. We’re here to help you build confidence on the road, pass your test and become a safe driver for the rest of your life.
Even if you’ve failed your driving test, it’s not the end of the world. In fact, if you already know what it’s like to sit a test, you can prepare yourself better for the big day. We’ll help you figure out what went wrong the first time around and we’ll work on that with you.
In our working lives, we all accept the benefit of ongoing training to help us keep up to date. With this in mind, it makes sense to take the same approach with our driving.
The value of post-test training is widely accepted as beneficial throughout the driving industry. It’s something that provides the newly qualified driver with an opportunity to further develop and hone their skills.
There’s also an increasing amount of people who’ve held a licence for a number of years and are realising that they too would benefit from extra tuition. Many are taking a refresher course.
At RED, our refresher courses cover a wide range of driving situations. Bespoke courses are designed to provide help and support to drivers.
For those in a bit of a hurry to pass your test and get your driving licence, RED can offer the option of intensive driving lessons. An intensive driving course can be great when starting your lessons from scratch, or for those just wanting to brush up on their skills before sitting their test. Intensive lessons can range from a daily two-hour lesson to consecutive days of back-to-back lessons. We can be as flexible as you need us to be.
Whether you learn to drive over a period of a few months or simply a few weeks, RED will ensure you have the right skills to not only be a competent driver, but to pass your test and be a safe driver for life.
Ever wondered why it can be so expensive for new drivers to get car insurance? It’s because after 40 to 80 hours of driving experience, most people forget that they’re still an inexperienced driver.
Obviously the last thing you want is to have an accident. So, what are the options for reducing the chances of being involved in an accident? A Pass Plus course will enable you to gain confidence and valuable experience after passing your test, including learning how to reduce the risk of accidents.
Our Pass Plus course is a six-hour package, which includes the following in-car tuition:
Ideal as a 17th Birthday present, vouchers can be bought to redeem against driving lessons. You can purchase driving lesson gift vouchers online to suit your budget.
These can be given to the learner who will be able to redeem the voucher against our best introductory driving lesson prices and course package discounts. RED Driving Lesson Gift Vouchers also give access to our award-winning online Road Brain Trainer which will help prepare to pass the driving test.
