time pass

We are currently running a campaign called “First Time Pass.” The aim of this campaign is to make pupils more aware of what is involved in a driving lesson, what common mistakes are made during a practical test, and what you will be learning if you are a beginner or part-trained. We are here to help any way we can, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you reach your goals. We wish you the best of luck!

Hi there!

Learning to drive is a great way to become more independent and enjoy the freedom of being able to get around. It’s not always easy, but with the right help and guidance, you can get started on the path to becoming a licenced driver.

There are a few steps you need to take before you can get behind the wheel:

  1. Make sure you’re eligible to drive in the UK. You must be at least 17 years old and have a valid provisional driving licence.
  2. Find a driving school that suits your needs. There are many driving schools in the UK, so you’re sure to find one that fits your budget and meets your needs.
  3. Take the driving theory test. This is a multiple-choice exam that tests your knowledge of the highway code and other driving-related topics.
  4. Take the practical driving test. This is a practical exam in which you’ll be asked to demonstrate your driving skills in a variety of road conditions.
  5. Once you’ve passed both tests, you can apply for your full driving license!

Good luck with your journey to becoming a licenced driver in the UK!

What will you usually be learning if you are a beginner?


Basic procedures, Controls, Cockpit checks, Giving signals, Moving off, Pulling up on the left, Turning right, Turning left, T-junctions, Cross roads, Pedestrian crossings, Meeting traffic, Big roundabouts, Mini roundabouts, Manoeuvres, Dual carriageways, Independent driving, Sat Nav and Emergency stop.

One way to increase the pass rate for learner drivers is to focus on developing  good driving habits from the beginning.

How much time does it take to learn to drive?

There is no minimum number of lessons or hours of driving practise required. The number of lessons required will be determined by how quickly you learn. (Driving instructors are professionals with advanced training in safe driving who help you learn to drive. Nobody else but a driving instructor is likely to have the expertise, education, and training needed to teach you correctly.)

What if you are partially trained?

Good luck in your journey to becoming a

qualified driver!

If you already have some training but stopped and want to do it again, we recommend booking an assessment lesson. At the end of the assessment lesson, the instructor will give you feedback and help you make plans towards your goals.
