FAQ

I’ve never driven before. What should I expect on my first lesson?

Don’t worry, you wont be expected to get in the car and drive away from your house! Your instructor will pick you up from wherever is convenient for you, check your provisional licence and eyesight and drive you to a quiet area, probably a housing estate. Your instructor will go through the controls of the car followed by how to move off and how to stop. Then it’s time for you to have a go! You then move onto approaching junctions to turn left and right and emerging at junctions to turn left and right, depending on how long the lesson is. The above can usually be covered on your first 2 hour lesson, with the first hour being free you only pay for 1 hour.

If you’re nervous about your first lesson why not try our off road site? It’s the same price as an on the road lesson without the worry of other cars.

 

How many lessons will I need?

Research shows that learners who have had a combination of professional instruction and private practice do better at the driving test. On average, those who pass have had 47 hours of professional instruction and 20 hours of private practice. But you may require less, everyone is different as we all learn at our own pace.

 

How do I pay for lessons?

Preferably cash or bank transfer. If you wish to pay by cheque please ask your instructor beforehand.

 

Can I take lessons in my own car?

For safety reasons it’s advisable to take lessons in a dual controlled car, especially when you first start driving. However if you are a more experienced learner with your own car please contact me as it may be possible to have lessons in your car.
