MTod Driving is run by Margaret Tod, ADI.




My name is Margaret Tod and I am a fully qualified driving instructor based in Midlothian. I became an approved driving instructor in January 2011 and enjoyed working with a well-known national driving school for five years before deciding to set up my own driving school M Tod Driving in May 2016. Since 2011, I have helped hundreds of learners achieve their goal of passing their driving test.

I pride myself in my thorough teaching, which allows learners to be fully prepared when it comes to their test, and for their driving for years to come.

I provide a range of services including theory test learning materials, individual lessons, refresher courses, Pass Plus and motorway lessons.

Lessons take place in Midlothian, Edinburgh and East Lothian and arrangements can be made to collect and drop-off at convenient locations including your home, work, university, college or school.


COVID-19 precautions 

I take a lateral flow test every two days and I request that all students take one before each lesson. If anyone feels unwell, they should NOT attend a lesson. During lessons masks must be worn and windows will be open (so please dress accordingly).

My car is fog sanitised every two weeks and every touch point is wiped between any change of driver.
