frequently asked question


  • Do you have a waiting list for new starters?
    We dont normally keep a waiting list (most pupils put themselves on everyone's and go with whichever has space 1st). It is also very difficult to predict when each pupil will finish which then gives space for someone else to start. We dont want to mess pupils around by saying next week again and again.
  • Can I book a lesson for my 17th Birthday 
    Yes we recommend booking your lesson in advance (about 6 months to be sure to get a slot) we do ask for payment to secure the booking and guarantee the slot.   
  • How do I know when my next lesson is 
    We use My Drive Time the best online diary which is linked with the driving school. The online diary also tracks your progress and money spend,or, if paid in advance,how many hours you have left.
  • My Mum/Dad says they only took 10 hours to pass. They’re asking why it’s taking so long?
    The driving test has likely changed since your Mum and Dad started learning. The whole driving test theory and practical test is much more complex due to changes in road layouts and driving laws. 
  • What costs aren’t covered in the lesson prices?
    Only thing not covered is the cost of theory and practical driving tests, these are paid directly to the DVSA.
  • Can you Book the test for me?
    Yes we can book the test for you, and we only charge the DVSA fee.
  •  How long does it take before I'm test ready

  • Does the cost of the Practical Test fee cover the use of the car too?
    No, we charge 2 and half hours for test and this includes 1-hour lesson before your test. 
  • If I pay up front for a block of lessons, how long do I have to use those hours up?
    12 months,unless agreed to extend due to unforeseen circumstances.
