Frequently ask Questions

How can we help you?

You need to be at least 17 or 16 if you get the enhanced rate of mobility component of personal independence payment (PIP)

You will need a provisional driving licence which can be applied for at the post office or online

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommend 44 hours of professional lessons to pass a driving test, everyone learns at their own pace so this is only an average figure.

Your lessons can be one, one and a half or two hours long depending on your availability and your driving instructors.

Automatic vehicles are easier to learn in and if you have a disability or limited mobility they will probably be the best choice for you. However if you pass your driving test in an automatic vehicle your licence will only allow you to drive an automatic, if you pass your driving test in a manual vehicle you are legally allowed to drive manual and automatic.

No you can start your driving lessons before passing your theory test, all of our pupils have free access to the app "Theory Test Pro" to help you practice for the theory exam.

You can pay cash on the day with your driving instructor or pre-pay on our website 24 hours before your lesson and save money.

What our students say about us:

“It was a long run, with all the lockdowns and my long, personal break away from driving, but finally I passed, and that's just because of Libby. I'm not sure I'd make it otherwise.”

“Had a driving instructor called Libby, she was very friendly and gave persistent but not annoying advice which is hard to do but she’s spot on. Couldn’t recommend her anymore.”

“Easily the nicest guy. Made me feel so at ease from day one and is the most knowledgeable person I've met, not only did I pass my test first time I've also learnt so much more than I thought I would. Any nerves I had were put ease straight away and I felt so comfortable every lesson. ”

“My driving instructor Tony Singh is the best driving instructor, he has been so patient and every lesson I felt more and more confident. I was so nervous for my test but Tony gave me the best advice and that is to take your time, there’s no rush and just relax and you know what that is the best advice, even when I thought I had failed my test I kept going just like Tony said and I was so shocked to find out I had passed which was my first attempt. Thank you again can’t wait the hit the road.”
