Driving lessons with M8Driving School

We are more than just driving instructors!



Big Thanks to Steven Porter for teaching me how to drive. He is a great instructor with excellent teaching skills. He got my confidence up and made me believe in myself. I´m a very nervous person, and Steven made it that I became a confident and good driver. Would recommend him to anyone. You are a great guy with the patience of a saint:...

M8 Driving School was started back in February 2008 by Steven Porter. The business has grown since then into one of Renfrewshires most popular Driving Schools!


Steven Porter


Since passing his tests to become an instructor, he has continued to improve his skills and qualifications by attending countless courses and conferences.

Steven is an approved driving instructor, fleet, NDORS (National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme) and SAFED (Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving) trainer. He also holds a F1RST advanced driving qualification recently aquiring the Masters with distinction from the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM Roadsmart).

Steven has also passed a PTTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) qualification (City & Guilds Teaching), a BTEC level 4 coaching in driver education, has attended The University of East London for driver development and is a Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic programming).

In the last few years Steven has been heavily involved with The Motor Schools Association of Great Britain currently the deputy chairman for Scotland working along side some of the biggest names in the industry.


Paul Gregory


Paul has been teaching in the Renfrewshire area for over 10 years now with many past pupils raving on social media about how calm and relaxing he is during their driving lessons.

”I passed my test first time after the excellent instruction I had from Paul. He’s a credit to the driving school and I couldn’t have done it without him. I struggled for a long time to find an instructor when friends, even if they passed their test, didn’t like the instructors they had. Lucky for me that someone on the Paisley FB group suggested M8.” - Deb Cowan Foley


“Best decision I could have made. I can’t recommend them highly enough and at a year off my 40th birthday it shows you’re never too old to learn…and PASS!”


“Thanks to Paul I passed my test first time and I couldn’t be happier!! After having problems with a previous instructor I switched to M8 Driving School and it was definitely the right decision for me to the right instructor! Paul always made sure our lessons were fun and stress free whilst teaching me how to be the best driver I could be. He is a brilliant instructor and always made me feel at ease during our lessons. He is a brilliant confidence builder and I could openly talk to him about how I felt the lessons were going. I will miss our drives! Cannot recommend him highly enough.” - Megan McGinley
