Welcome, Magnum School of Motoring is based in and around Edinburgh and offers a wide range of manual and automatic driving lessons in Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian and Peeblesshire.
Magnum School of Motoring was founded by two former Traffic Police officers, Kenny Buchanan and Dave Irvine, to teach and promote safer learner driver training.
As the company has grown in reputation, John Hunter and Steve Carroll joined the company as partners.
Between them these Instructors alone have over eighty years traffic driving experience. They are Scottish Police College Advanced Driving Certificates holders, members of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, fully qualified DSA Approved Driving Instructors and Pass Plus registered instructors. Dave, Steve and John are examiners and fleet trainers with the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists).
Both Dave and John are holders of the RoSPA Gold Diploma in Advanced Instruction and are examiners for RoSPA also. (These instructors are full time Advanced Instructors).
Steve is currently managing a project of PCV training in Saudi Arabia. Our other Instructors are involved in a five year project for the Royal Mail Group on a part time basis.
All our Instructors have a unique insight into driver behaviour and use adaptive instructional techniques to ensure each pupil receives the very best of training for their circumstances. This ensures that pupils are able to sit their driving test with a greater chance of success.
