Welcome to FUN ON WHEELS UK - the expert Suffolk driving school where learning to drive is fun.
Based at Ixworth near Bury St Edmunds, we deliver quality driving instruction and trailer tuition to learner drivers from all over Suffolk, Norfolk and East Anglia.
We believe that our high driving test pass rate stems not only from the dedication and determination of our students, but because we specialise in personally tailored driving lessons which make learning to drive an enjoyable and positive experience.

Our focus is on nurturing your driving skills for life – not just those to get you through your test. When we put you in the driving seat, we know that you will learn, absorb, perform and realise your greatest potential if there is no pressure and you can take things at your own pace.
Whether you are a new learner, looking to refresh or advance your driving skills or have a specific need to gain a trailer-driving qualification,
at FUN ON WHEELS UK our driving lessons are relaxed, friendly and informative.

"Thank you again for all of your help & hard work! It has been great training with you for my car & trailer towing test. Highly recommend you! "

"Still don't believe it.... Not even now!!! Thank you so much, Terry for helping me pass my B + E Driving Test."
The length of our driving lessons is flexible, tailored to the needs of the individual and starting at one hour minimum. We can generally propose a range of lesson times throughout the week to fit in with your lifestyle and commitments. If you live in a rural community, it is generally beneficial to start the driving lesson in Bury St Edmunds, in order to benefit from urban driving experience for the full duration.
From advice on preparing for your theory test to delivering practical driving tuition and experience, as well as booking and managing your driving test, FUN ON WHEELS UK can support you along the whole of your journey to independent driving.
Why not ask us about theory test apps - great tools which we’d love to share to help you with your learning?

As your ‘motoring mentor’, Terry’s client-centred approach in his role of driving instructor is understanding, intuitive, positive, informative and highly professional – more of a coach than a teacher in fact.
