Driving Lessons (Manual only)

All driving lessons are carried out by our fully qualified Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructors (car) on a one-to-one basis i.e. no car sharing. This ensures you receive complete attention. All Instructors abide by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency code of Practice.

Your driving lesson will last a full hour. The instructor will arrive on time and be patient and courteous.

Theory Tuition

We recommend that you take your Practical Lessons and Theory Tuition at the same time, as this will aid understanding, saving you time and money.

The Theory Test must be passed before you can apply for your practical driving test.

Practical Courses for You

Each individual will have their own needs assessed according to their previous experience. A course will then be designed to suit your needs.

All courses cover the relevant Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency syllabus for learning to drive. You will need approximately 50 hours of driving tuition depending on your previous experience. DVSA statistics.
