Learner Drivers

If you are learning to drive for the first time, we follow the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency "Learning to Drive" syllabus - the organisation which sets the tests. So whether you are getting behind the wheel of a car for the first time, or already have some practice under your belt, you can be assured our professional training will help you through the early stages, your test and beyond.

As a professional driving school, you have the assurance that we follow the voluntary Approved Driving Instructor Code of Practice.

We provide a dual controlled Ford Fiesta car, with air conditioning, for training and test purposes, which we guarantee to be clean and tidy inside and out.  Spacious, with great all round visibility, our clients find the car easy to manoeuvre and drive.


Practical test

Your course of lessons will be individually tailored to suit your needs. This might be getting to know the basics first, leading on to more difficult road and traffic situations when the time is right for you. You will want to make sure you are competent at carrying out all the manoeuvres which form part of the course, and driving independently, using a sat nav or following traffic signs.

FREE Drivers Record - we will supply you with your own drivers record to see how you are progressing.

FREE hand outs on road procedure and manoeuvring, which will help you pass your test sooner.

FREE Safety Question hand outs - ‘show me' & 'tell me’ questions are asked during your test.  Our hand outs will help you with this, and our discussions will give you a better understanding of the checks you should be carrying out on your car on a regular basis, to keep it safe and road worthy

Independent Driving forms part of the driving test. Where required, you will learn how to follow directions from a sat nav. You can also practice following traffic signs, which proves beneficial after you have passed your test, when you might need to find your way around a place you are unfamiliar with.

Mock tests will help prepare you for your test – so you know exactly what will happen at the test centre and during your driving test. 


Theory test


It is often beneficial to study for your theory test whilst undergoing your practical lessons as the two complement each other.

You will be asked to answer 50 multiple choice questions based on The Highway Code and Driving The Essential Skills, plus a section on Hazard Perception – a series of videos where you will have to identify developing hazards.

FREE advice and assistance in preparing to pass your theory test.

FREE theory test resource material is available which can help you pass your test.

FREE copy of The Highway Code.

So, if you've got your provisional licence as a 17 year old, just returned from university or have had your provisional licence for some time but not got round to taking your test, we have the right course for you!
