Driving lessons can be commenced from home, work or educational facility and for the duration of your choice. Lessons are booked at mutually convenient times and the frequency and duration is of your choosing.  Everyone is different, many customers want to learn to drive quickly and have their lessons more intensively while other customers like to take their time when learning. Either approach is fine; everyone reaches their desired goal in their own individual way.

Learning To Drive

In order to be able to learn to drive you must be aged 17 (16 if you receive Higher Rate Mobility Allowance) and hold a Valid UK Provisional driving licence.  You must have use of a vehicle that is Taxed holds an MOT certificate (if over 3 years old) and is insured for your use.

Anyone over the age of 21 who holds a full UK driving licence and has held this licence for a minimum of 3 years can accompany a learner driver. 

You must clearly display L plates (or D plates in Wales) to the front and rear of your vehicle.  When displaying your L or D plates ensure that you do not obstruct any view through your windows, look to purchase magnetic or self adhesive plates that you can display on the car body work or bumpers. 

Before driving you must also ensure that you can read a Vehicle registration number at the required distance, this is 20.5 metres or 20 metres on a new style number plate (from 2001 onwards). 

It is a great idea to gain as much private practice as possible when learning to drive, it helps build confidence with many different situations and driving conditions.  There is however, no substitute for gaining Professional Instruction from and Approved Driving Instructor to begin with.  This will help you with understanding the correct procedures from the very beginning and will make your private practice all the more rewarding and stress free.
