Price Increase


Please note that due to rising costs such as fuel, insurance and other car costs XLR8 Driver Training will be increasing our prices by £1 per hour effective from Monday 7th April.

Our prices have remained the same since 2007 and throughout the economic downturn our mission has always been to provide high quality training at a affordable price. We therefore hope that all existing and future pupils will understand that after 7 years of increasing costs we now need to increase our prices to be able to offer the same excellent quality service.

Well done to our Instructor John Gardner who recently achived a Grade 5 on his DSA Check Test.

This is even more impressive given John’s recent ill health.

A Grade 5 is decribed as ‘A good overall performance with some minor weaknesses in instructional technique’

This now makes the Instructors at XLR8 Driver Training amongst the highest graded in Renfrewshire.
