All about Steve

Buckle-Up Bolton Driving School has provided driving lessons to the people of Bolton for nearly 20 years.


In that time, we have helped hundreds of people to pass their test, and learn how to drive safely for life.

Our Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), Steve Eckersley, is registered with the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and is also a certified Pass Plus trainer.

Steve’s experience covers all ages and abilities. He understands that everyone learns in different ways, and at different rates. That’s why each driving course is tailored to suit the individual. Doing it in this way has meant that his pupils often pass first time, and with very few minor faults (if any).

Steve is patient, friendly, punctual and reliable. These qualities, on top of his advanced driving expertise, make him an excellent choice for anyone wishing to learn how to drive.

What we offer

Our driving lessons are designed around you. We want to be sure that you get the absolute best experience from learning to drive, as well as achieve the ultimate goal of passing your test in the fewest number of lessons possible.

We use interactive learning techniques which have proved very successful in getting our pupils to visualise what is required of them with every manoeuvre.

We provide helpful instruction towards the theory test, which can be the most daunting part of learning to drive for some people. For the practical part of the driving test process, our mock tests are really popular and help to calm the nerves on the big day.

We also want to make sure that you continue to drive safely after you’ve got your license. For this, we offer Advanced Driving courses, Pass Plus courses, motorway training and refresher lessons.

What our pupils have to say…

“I love being a driving instructor; and I love driving. In fact, my whole working life has involved driving, whether a car, a van, or an articulated lorry. But teaching people to drive is the best job I’ve had. You just can’t beat the feeling of seeing someone that you’ve come to know over weeks of driving lessons, finally holding their pass certificate. It fills me with pride every single time!”
