Driving Lessons

How many hours will it take?

In the UK people usually take between 25 and 40 hours to learn to drive. How many lessons you need will depend upon your motivation and aptitude for driving.

We also offer discounts for block/advanced bookings.

What is the best way to learn to drive?

The best way to learn to drive is to take regular lessons spread over a few weeks on a semi-intensive basis (depends on your own schedule of course).

Pupils using the “one-lesson-a-week” approach often take many months to learn to drive. While this helps to spread out the cost you do end up paying more in the long run. This is because you often forget what you have learnt from one week to the next. You end up taking two steps forward and one step back. Consequently, you take many more lessons to pass the test.

“Driver Active Pack”

We provide Driver Active Packs for all new learner drivers that include: Driver Records, Revision Sheets, Competency Sheets etc. We will help you to quickly and easily pass your test and become a safe and efficient driver. Not only do we offer expert tuition in the car we also provide free handouts and online training to help accelerate your progress towards passing your test.
