Welcome to Emerald Mile

Hi! My name is Colin Caraher and I am a DSA approved instructor covering Stirling, Bannockburn, Bridge of Allan, Cambusbarron, Dunblane and the surrounding area. I provide driving courses for learner drivers, PassPlus training for newly qualified drivers and refresher or motorway lessons for full licence holders.

Structured Lessons

No two learner drivers are the same – so your learning plan will be tailored to suit your individual needs. I have a flexible approach to lessons and my goal is not only to help you pass that all important driving test but more importantly that you become a safe driver … for life!

Call me any time on 0784 183 6086 to get off to a great start.

The Car

The car used for instruction is an Audi A3 1.4 TFSi which is much easier to drive than most other driving instructing cars - it's less likely to stall, it has a really tight turning circle and the engine layout is really simple. It also has all of the safety features you'd expect from an Audi.


My rates are simple:
Individual Lesson £24
Block of 10 lessons £220
PassPlus Course £150

Pick-up and drop-off time will not be included in your lesson time (unlike some other driving schools). This means you get more value for your money with me. Call 0784 183 6086 now to book your lessons today.

Tip of the Day

If you've just had an argument with someone or are feeling stressed out for whatever reason, try to avoid driving until you have calmed down.  Otherwise, you'll almost certainly end up driving too quick.
