Q: How many hours tuition will I need to pass my test?
A: The answer is really dependant on a number of things; your age, your ability to learn, the regularity of lessons. As a guide, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) state that:
“Research shows that learners who have a combination of professional instruction and private practice do better at the driving test. On average, those who pass have had 47 hours of professional instruction and 20 hours of private practice.”
Q: What do I need to do before my first lesson?
A: I will arrange to meet with you in person to discuss what you need and explain everything you need to know. This also gives us a chance to have a chat before the lesson so that we can discuss previous experience, expectations etc without wasting lesson time.
Q: Do I need to have passed my theory test before I have lessons?
A: No, but you might find that if you have started studying for it, you will feel better prepared for being on the roads.
Q: Do I need to book my own theory and practical tests or will you do it?
A: You book the tests yourself, it’s a simple online procedure. Although I can do it for you if you prefer, the advantage of booking your practical test for you is that I can ensure I am definitely available at the time and date booked.
Q: What do I need to take to my Theory Test?
A: You will need both parts of your photo licence, or your licence and another form of ID if you have an old paper licence. You will also need the letter the DSA sent inviting you to your test.
Q: What do I need to take to my Practical Test?
