Preparing For Your Driving Test

Provisional license

Fill in a D1 application form from your local Post Office. You will need to enclose original documents for proof of identity as well as a passport style colour photograph and the fee of £50.00. This should take approximately 3 weeks. Alternatively, submit your application online and you should receive your license within 2 weeks.

Booking your First Lessons

When you contact us we will give you a lot of options around booking lessons. There are no minimum number of hours that you need to book, but we will assess you on our first outing and based on our experience give you an estimate of the number of hours needed.

We do offer substantial savings on block bookings.

Theory Test

As soon as you have started lessons you’ll want to prepare for your theory test. We recommend getting a Driving Test Success Theory DVD that will give you all the information and practice you need.

Your practical driving lessons will make so much more sense when you know the theory. Of course, your driving instructor can help you with any queries you may have and you can also find out more here.

Driving Lessons

The lesson will start in a quiet area. Your lady instructor will make sure you are aware of where the main controls are and what they do, before she encourages you to move the car. All our tuition vehicles are fitted with dual controls for extra safety however your instructor will guide you through the correct procedures so that they are seldom needed.

After each lesson your instructor will give you an assessment of your progress. Only when she believes that you are ready and confident will your instructor encourage you to book your practical test.

Driving Test

Your instructor will advise you when you are ready to book your test. To help you overcome nerves and better prepare you for the driving test, we offer you the option to take a ‘mock test’. Your instructor will play the role of an examiner, allowing you to get familiar with the test format, which removes much of the pressure on the real test whilst also giving you valuable feedback.

We will normally book you a 2 hour slot for your test so you can practice driving, go over any last niggles and feel ready for your test.
