Frequently Asked Questions
The Driving Standards Agency recommends around 44 hours of instruction plus practice. This is just an average figure and it’s important to remember that everyone is different. We'll keep tabs on your driving progress and let you know how close you are to taking (and passing) your driving test
Q. How often should I have my driving lessons?
A. It's up to you, but 1 session of around 2 hours a week, or 2 sessions of 1 hour a week would keep you on target.
Q. How much do I need to know about driving before starting driving lessons?
A. Nothing or everything! We'll get you driving from scratch or help you pass the final furlong.
Q. I am really nervous about starting to drive, what should I do?
A. Talk to us and we will make sure we work at the right pace and that you are at your ease.
