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:

“I contacted 1st Driving School on behalf of my daughter as I passed in 2016 with this company with Michael Harmer. I was put in touch with Andy Blain. I explained the issues my daughter had with previous 2 instructors (shouting at her turning up late etc) Andy was brilliant. Hes put her at ease, built up her confidence and learnt her to drive and today she passed her test 1st time. Hes an amazing instructor and will definitely be recommending him and 1st Driving School to anyone I know looking for an instructor. Brilliant company brilliant instructors.”

“I passed my driving test the other day, and it’s been a wonderful experience. My driving instructor Rafhat was really really nice and was a very very good instructor. I couldn’t have passed without him! He has a very very good heart and was very patient and adjusted his teaching in the way that suited you the best. I would 100% recommend him and I am going to recommend him to a lot of people as well!! If you want to pass quick and be taught good, I would 100% use him!”

“I completed 26 hours across 4 months with Kamal Singh,I don’t drive outside of my lessons at all only with my instructor and I managed to pass with only 2 minors. It may be different for different people, but you have to be ready to learn. Would deffo recommend 1st Driving School. My friend also passed with them as well.”
