Where do you provide driving lessons?

A normal 2 hour driving lesson is £50. If you would like to block book its £230 for 10 hours, saving you £20. Please get in touch to find out more, or to book your driving lessons.
How often should I have driving lessons?
You can have driving lessons as often as you like but try to have at least one per week so you don’t leave it too long in between lessons.
How many driving lessons do I need to take?
This just depends on you and how comfortable you feel behind the wheel. Everyone learns at different rates, so try not to put pressure on yourself and just take things at your own pace.
The DVSA recommend 40 hours of professional tuition plus 20 hours of private tuition.
What do I need to do before I can start driving lessons?
You will need your provisional driving licence and a code that will enable your driving instructor to check your full licence details (we’ll send your more info on this when you book your first driving lesson).
What type of car will I learn in?
Our preferred car is a diesel Renault Clio. It’s a great size, not too big and not too small, perfect for learning to drive. We only offer manual driving lessons at this time.
How can I pay for my lessons?
You can pay for your driving lessons through the MyDriveTime app (you get access to this once you sign up), or via online banking.
Can I choose where to get picked up from on my driving lesson?
Yes, as long as it’s within the area we cover.
Do you provide Theory Test training?
Yes, all students get full access to Theory Test Pro online theory training.
