Frequently Asked Questions


Questions we are asked a lot…

We receive a lot of emails and phone calls asking questions that are repeated all of the time. To save you some trouble of having to call us up and ask, we have put listed some of these popular questions below.




What do I need for my driving lessons?

You have to be 17 years old and have a provisional driving license. You can get a provisional license by from the GOV website and completing an online application, or you can get a form from your local Post Office and apply for one there. It can take up to 2 weeks for a provisional driving license to reach you after you apply.

What should I bring to my first driving lesson?

You should bring your provisional license (photo card). If you have any driving experience already, you should bring any notes or progress reports you have. You should wear shoes that have a thin sole, as this helps with the clutch control which requires some sensitivity. If you wear glasses please bring these also.

What will I be doing during my first lesson?

If you’re a beginner, your instructor will try to get to know you as a person and establish your goals. They will then drive you to a quiet area while giving you a commentary as they drive. When you get to a suitable place, you’ll change seats with the instructor and learn all the controls of the vehicle. You will then be taught how to move off and drive the car! Once the lesson is over, the instructor will drive you back to your home and rebook you in for your next lesson.

How many driving lessons will I need to do?

Everyone is different and needs a different amount of lessons to get passed. On average, it takes our pupils 26 hours to pass. Which is a fraction of the 67 hour national average.

If you would like a better indication of how many lessons you will need, our assessment lesson would be perfect for you.

What will I be driving?

When can I book a driving test?

Both the theory test and driving test need to be booked online. To book the test you’ll need your provisional license details and an email address you can use to log into the booking system. The booking process is very simple and quick. We would recommend only ever using the GOV.UK website to book your tests.

Can I use my driving instructor's car for my test?

Yes, as long as the instructor thinks you’re ready for your test, you can use the car you learned in. If you would prefer, you can also use your own vehicle if you have one.
