go on and on about us

Here at go driving lessons Bolton, we use the most up to date coaching and mentoring techniques, alongside modern training methods using Apple iPads. Our driving lessons are centred on an individual’s needs and requirements, to ensure the best possible outcomes when taking your driving test.

Our sole aim is to deliver a learning journey that will prepare every pupil not only for their test, but for a lifetime of safe, defensive driving.

As we are fast approaching an unbelievable 40 million cars registered in the UK, the driver syllabus has changed beyond all recognition (with more drastic changes on the way). The training that we provide, reflect the requirement for modern day driving on all types of roads and everyday scenarios.

As opposed to your typical over sized, franchised driving school , our training has a fresh, personal and most of all fun approach to developing skills rather than the tradition ‘show and tell’ way. We are a local, independent driving school, proudly based in Bolton, ideally placing us to provide driving coaching throughout the North West.


‘go’ instructor

IMGP3938Hi, I’m Martin Galway, your tutor and sole owner of go-driving-lessons. I live in North Bolton at the Cottonwork Mill development in Sharples. I am Bolton born and bred, so I know the area and people well

With 20 years previous experience in recruitment and area management within the telecoms sector, one of my key skills is to develop, coach and mentor people to gain the best possible outcomes. This key skill enables me to deploy the latest coaching techniques to all pupils of go-driving-lessons Bolton

My character is easy going and relaxed. I feel this helps as all lessons should be fun and enjoyable, as well as being structured and informative. A relaxed atmosphere aids and reduces the stress of learning, particularly in the early stages.

Feel free to call me for a “no pressure” chat about becoming a pupil. I’m also keen to hear from learner drivers who feel they are not getting what they expect from their current tutor or simply don’t enjoy their lesson time.

I look forward to hearing from you, Martin.

‘go’ golf


Why learn to drive in a boring Ford Fiesta or a Vauxhall Corsa when to can ‘go’ all VW Golf?


We have gone all grown up now since departing with our beloved Mini as now using VW Golf GT tdi.2.0. This is a MK7 and therefore the most up to date model that celebrates 40 years of production this year

This is  Bolton coolest pupil car as we have gone for a near top of the range Golf. It hosts a large number of creature comforts which not only make it far easier to learn in, but will ensure your time with us is both comfortable and pleasurable. The overall driving experience is amazing as its extremely easy to drive and the visibility is exception therefore make it a perfect car to learn it

We have specifically chosen a near top of the range GT tdi 2.0 as its fully loaded with gadgets and gizmos to enhance your time with us.

Some stand out features include ….. Electronic auto handbrake which totally prevents the car rolling back on hill starts ….. Traffic sign display this automatically updates when you go through changes of speed therefore helping you detect changes instantly ….. Winter Pack which includes all sorts of goodies such as heated seats! ….. Navigation system ….. Cabin Ambient lighting pack for those dark winter evenings ….. Optical parking display and parking sensors ….. which help pupils negotiating tricky parallel parking manoeuvres !

It even has a sport mode so it can uterlise its 2.0 engine fully – but this can only but used when pupils do the Pass Plus course with us – boo hoo

‘go’ green

Our Golf has been fitted with ‘Bluemotion Technologies’ that not only reduce emissions but have many design features to reduce power output, such as Start Stop, Brake Energy Recuperation, and Low rolling resistance tyres.

All this technology helps our Golf to become one of the most efficient cars on the road today.
