Frequently Asked Questions

Learner qualifications

What do I need before my first Driving Lesson?

You will need a Provisional Driving Licence. This will need to be shown your Driving Instructor on your first lesson. (Allow 3 weeks from your Provisional Driving Licence application form, for it to arrive – although it could be less). Keep it save because you will also need it for both the theory and practical Driving Tests. You will also need to be able to read a car number plate at 20.5 meters.


When can I take my Driving Lesson?

Most pupils will have one Driving Lesson a week, but that’s not essential. They can be tailored to whatever suits you best.
