Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question about driving lessons, we may already have an answer for it here for you.

If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, give us a call and one of the team will be happy to advise you. Alternatively, you can contact us by email.




What do I need to do or have before I start my driving lessons?

Firstly, you must be 17 years of age to start your driving lessons. You will need to have a provisional driving licence – only the photo card. This can be attained by filling out a D1 form, which you can get from your local post office, or you can apply online through the GOV.UK website.

What do I bring to my first driving lesson?

You should bring your provisional driving licence and if you have any previous driving experience, bring your progress cards or any notes you may have. Bring your glasses/contact lenses if you wear them and wear shoes that have thin soles, so you can control the clutch better.

If you have not prepaid for your lesson, you should also bring the payment for the lesson.

How do I pay for driving lessons?

There are a few ways that you can use to pay for your lessons:

– You can pay online using your credit or debit card
– You can give us a call and pay over the phone via credit or debit card
– You can pay cash or cheque directly to the instructor on your lesson.

What learning vehicle can I have?

We have a range of vehicles which you can choose to take your lessons in. Our cars are small, as to not intimidate learner drivers, so we have a choice of Citroen DS3, Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and more. Please note that all cars are subject to availability.

How long are driving lessons?

You can choose to have driving lessons which are 60, 90 or 120 minutes long. You can discuss with your instructor which lesson time would suit you best.

What happens on the first lesson?

A lot of people think the first lesson will be boring. Well, not with us! We will get you over to a quiet area, where we will get you started by showing you all the controls of the car. Then, we’ll put you in the drivers seat and by the end of your fist lesson, you’ll be driving!

How many lessons am I going to need?

Everyone is different and has different learning speeds. Some pick it up quicker than others, so it’s difficult to say how many lessons an individual will need without seeing them drive first. If you want to know how many lessons you’ll need to be ready, our assessment lesson would be perfect for you.

The DSA recommends that learners should have 44 hours of driving lessons with an instructor, plus 22 hours of private practice with a family member or friend.

Our average learner passes in 26 hours!

When can I book my tests?

You can book your theory test absolutely any time. We would say to have a few lessons before taking your theory test, as your driving lessons aid in the learning for your theory, plus you can ask your instructor about any questions you’re unsure of.

Once you have passed your theory test, you will be able to book your practical driving test. However, don’t book your test unless your instructor has told you that you’re ready.

Can I use my instructor's car for my test?

Yes. As long as the instructor feels that you have a good chance of passing your test, you will be able to use the instructor’s car for your test. You won’t be charged extra for the use of the car, just the standard lesson rate.
