Frequently asked questions

Below are some of the questions prospective and new pupils often ask. Please feel free to call should you have any queries that you would like to discuss directly

Can I have more than 1 lesson a week?

Of course you can. The less time between lessons will help you learn quicker as you will need to spend less time acclimatising yourself to the car each time. Please call to discuss availability.

Can I have lessons more than 1 hour long?

Yes, many pupils find it beneficial to have longer lessons and, depending upon available time slots, 1.5 and 2 hour lessons can be arranged.

Are you a qualified instructor?

Yes. In order to conduct driving lessons on a professional basis, all instructors must be registered with the DVSA.

Some driving schools may choose to use ´PDI´s (potential driving instructors). These are registered instructors who have not yet passed the final part of their instructors test. PDI´s will display a pink triangular badge in the car windscreen. We only use fully qualified instructors, We all display a green octagonal badge in the car windscreen. Don´t be afraid to ask for confirmation!

How many lessons will I need?

There are many factors that determine how many lessons you will end up needing. Age, gender, attitude, personality and the ability to practise when not in lessons all contribute.

Once you have had a few lessons, we will be better able to judge this for you.

Will other pupils be in the car with me?

NO! Unlike many schools, all our lessons are conducted on a one to one basis and you will not be sharing your lessons with other pupils.

How will I know I'm ready to take my test?

We will keep track of your progress and discuss this with you as appropriate. We will let you know when we feel you are ready to start thinking about booking a test.

What car do you use to teach in?

We currently use the following cars

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 CDTi SRi-Nav
Vauxhall Astra 1.6 CDTi SRi-Nav
Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi
Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi
