In order to take driving lessons you are required to hold a British Provisional Driving Licence, application forms are available from main Post Offices or can be ordered online. Details can be found on the DVLA web site.
Once you have your licence your next step is to contact us and make a suitable appointment for your first lesson. You can specify your preference for a male or a female instructor and the time and place you want picking up. Your lesson will start from the time your instructor picks you up, during which you will have his or her personal (one to one) attention. He or she will provide you with professional patient instruction at the correct level for your ability keeping the same instructor throughout your training if at all possible.

These courses are designed for pupils in a hurry, and who have already passed the theory test. Please contact us before making a decision, as it would be advisable to have an assessment lesson prior to booking (if possible) in order to get the correct course for your personal requirements.
Most beginners can on average, successfully pass their test following a 30 hour course. If you have some driving experience it could be considerably less. We recommend an assessment lesson for any pupil who is unsure what route to take or what size course to choose, as your instructors advise can be helpful in making the right choice for you.
Semi Intensive Courses
It is essential to prepare for this test and study of the highway code and a suitable theory book is necessary, however if you have access to a PC or DVD player the DVD Roms available are much more useful as they allow practice on the hazard perception element of the test. These are widely available, however the official DSA versions are on sale at our city centre office price £12.95 for the DVD Rom and £5.99 for the theory test book, you can also buy them through your instructor. Also available on download from DSA or smart phone app.
DVD''s in Polish Urdu Punjabi, Hindi, Gujarati are available. These need to be order from the office cost £42.99.
Theory Test fee (at going to press) is £31.00 the fee is the same for car or bike. (if you already have a full bike or three wheeler licence and are thinking of learning to drive, you may not need to take the car theory if you passed your test before the theory test was introduced, check with the DVLA on 0870 240 0009.
Take a look at early tests of computer-generated hazard perception clips
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) wants you to have a look at samples of new hazard perception clips that have been computer generated.
Peter Weddell-Hall, DSA’s head of e-assessment, says:
“The clips are early prototypes. DSA aims to bring these computer-generated clips into the theory test by the end of 2013. It means DSA can introduce hazards that would be hard to film safely – particularly those involving vulnerable road users.”
The current clips were introduced into the theory test in November 2002. They were created by filming developing hazards in a variety of road and traffic situations using a specially adapted car.
The hazards in them are still relevant, but the image quality is not as clear or defined as is available today. The content – vehicles, backdrops and fashions - is looking dated, too.
You can book your theory or practical test over the phone if you have a credit or debit card or online at www.direct.gov.uk/drivingtest on 0300 200 1122, if you have neither we can do it for you but there is a small booking fee of £3.00 to add, just pop in with your licence or ring with your details.
Don''t take it before you''re ready!
Take advice from your driving instructor regarding when to sit your test. He/she has the knowledge and experience to advise when you are actually ready to take your test. There''s nothing worse than sitting a test when you''re not fully prepared for it. Being prepared helps to get rid of your driving test nerves and gives you confidence.
When you book your test, try and get a time early in the morning if you can, THIS WAY YOU DON''T HAVE ALL DAY TO FRET.
Caffeine can raise anxiety levels on certain people in less stressful situations nevermind on the day of your test. So give it a miss for one day. If you need to chill a bit Kalms or Rescue Remedy work well for most people (non-prescription herbal remedies available from chemists).
Free unlimited practice in your head!
Keep going over all the things in your head which you have learnt. What are your weak points? On previous lessons/mock tests what did you do wrong? When do you turn the steering wheel/handle bars on the reverse park/left reverse/U turn? When do you look all round? If you ask yourself a question and you''re not sure, write it down and ask your instructor!
Make sure you have done at least one proper mock test, so you know what exactly is actually going to happen on the day.
IMPORTANT - Drive exactly like you do on a lesson!
DONT LISTEN to ''HELPFUL ADVICE'' well meaning friends and family may offer.
When you''re on your test don''t change your driving, drive the same as you do on a lesson. Try to treat your driving test as just another lesson, after all your instructor wouldn't''t put you in if he/she wasn''t sure you could do it.
During the test your examiner may not chat at all, but some do. Your examiner won''t chat when you''re right in the middle of something. They''ll wait until you''re not doing much. If the examiner doesn''t chat at all, don''t worry just keep focused.
Try to think positively. In our experience the people who think they will pass compared to the people who think they might pass, have a better chance of passing. So try to focus on how you will feel when you pass, not on the things you may do wrong.
Remember it''s only a test and you can take it again if you need to.
Before you buy your first car it is a good idea to get some expert advise. The DIRECT.GOV.UK web site has some excellent advise for first time buyers just follow the link and happy motoring.
