10 Best Driving Schools In Nairobi

If you are looking forward to enroll in a driving school within Nairobi. Then this article will give you a guide on what to consider when looking for a school and some of the best driving schools you can find within Nairobi.

Well, recently I enrolled myself in a driving school and am thrilled that everything went on well, I had a hard time sampling amongst various schools but finally I settled for one that I found suitable for my case. In my search I realized that some driving schools in Kenya are charging as high as Ksh. 25,000 in Tution fee while others charge as low as Ksh. 10,000 for the same. Not forgetting their are other charges for Provisional driving license (Sh.750), test booking fee (Ksh.1050) just to mention but a few.

Is this worth it? Paying a lot of money in tuition fee fir the same NTSA Approved Curriculum and end up with the same document- driving license from National transport And safety Authority ( NTSA) at the end is not worth it. However, if the quality of service is what you are looking for then its better you inquire on what you will get that is unique from other schools before you pay that extra amount.

NTSA Approved Curriculum

Category A- Motorbike

Category B- Light vehicle (small cars)

Category C– Light Truck

Category D for PSV

Category E- Heavy Truck

Category F– Persons with Disability


That said and done, in no particular order, here are some of the best driving schools in Nairobi
