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:

“Best instructor around! I started my driving journey in April and passed my tests first time today thanks to my amazing instructor Stuart Nelson! He was not only patient and professional but made me feel at ease and helped me build my confidence over time. He's always friendly, down to earth and up for a laugh. I feel he's prepared me for all possible life scenarios and I'm confident I can tackle them all. Thanks Skip!”

“I would highly recommend Kev to anyone considering him as a driving instructor. When choosing a driving instructor it is important to factor in that you are literally spending hours with a person in a relatively small space and in high pressure situations, Kev is exactly the person you want to be with when in this environment. He has great sense of humour, an encyclopaedic knowledge of music and a very calm, instructive demeanor. Since passing my test with him (first time), the techniques and tips that he has taught me during my lessons have set me up excellently to be a safe and knowledgeable driver.”

“I’ve just passed my driving test with 1st Driving school and couldn’t recommend Rifhat (the driving instructor I had) any more. He’s a fantastic teacher. Very calm and patient. Not only is he great at his job but he’s also a lovely, down to earth guy. I will definitely be recommending him to friends and family looking for driving instructors in Nottingham!”
