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 through our website or if you prefer you can pay your instructor direct by cash or bank transfer.

“Had a great experience with Steve over the course of my lessons. He knows exactly what he is doing and teaches it to you in the right way and adapts lessons if he spots something. He is also easy to get along with and will make the lessons fun.”
