Frequently Asked Questions


How much are your lessons?

From the 1st January 2020 £26.00 per hour.

You need to be at least 17 years old and hold a provisional driving licence. To apply for a provisional licence, you must complete two forms, (D1 and D750) which are available at your local post office. Send off for your licence in good time, (you can apply up to 3 months in advance) so that you are not delayed once you have made the decision to get started. You are NOT permitted to drive until you have one. You must be able to read (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary) a car number plate made after 1 September 2001 from 20 metres. If you wear glasses or contact lenses to be able to do this, you must use them when driving. You must also meet the minimum eyesight standard for driving by having a visual acuity of at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) measured on the Snellen scale (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary) using both eyes together or, if you have sight in one eye only, in that eye. You must also have an adequate field of vision - your optician can tell you about this and do a test.


Can I book lessons that are longer than one hour?

It is sometimes advisable to have longer lessons but this can be very tiring at first so it is worth thinking of this aspect.


How do I pay for lessons?

Cash, cheques, PAYM or by bank transfer are acceptable.


Should I get some private practice?

We would always recommend that pupils get as much practice as possible as it will increase confidence and make you feel more comfortable behind the wheel. However always ask first as you would need to reach a standard of driving first, where you would not be dangerous! - we have dual controls - your Parents don't!!! You don't want to scare them off or they'll never offer to take you driving again! On a serious note, your accompanying driver will need to be at least 21 years old and have held a full licence for 3 years. Make sure you display "L" plates when you drive and ensure you have insurance cover. It's not worth taking the risk!!!


Do you give lessons in automatic cars?



Does my instructor smoke?

No, as laid down by law the car is a public place and therefore smoking is not permitted.


Does the car have dual controls?



Do I have to have passed my Theory test before I learn to drive?

It is not necessary to have passed your Theory test prior to having driving lessons and in some cases it is advantageous to have lessons whilst studying for your theory test as you will encounter some of the scenarios in the test.


How many lessons will I have to take?

This is the most difficult question to answer as it depends solely on the capabilities and standard of the individual. No pupil will be booked a test date until both they and their instructor are confident that they will pass. The "National Average" to get to test standard is approximately 47 hours with an additional 47 hours of private practice. It must be pointed out that some pupils may need more or less than this.


Can I book more than one lesson a week?

Yes all lessons are booked in agreement between you and the instructor and therefore the amount of lessons that you have in any given week is your decision subject to the instructor's availability.


What Car do you use?

Our Driving School car is a Kia Venga.


What do I need to bring on my first lesson?

On your first lesson we ask that you bring your driving licence and of course enough money to pay for 1 lesson in advance and for the lesson you have booked., Powered by Joomla!; Joomla templates by SG web hosting
