Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question that isn´t answered below, please send it HERE
Can I have more than 1 lesson a week?
Of course you can. The less time between lessons will help you learn quicker as you will need to spend less time acclimatising yourself to the car each time. Please call to discuss availability.
Are you a qualified instructor?
Yes. In order to conduct driving lessons on a professional basis, all instructors must be registered with the DIA.
Some schools use 'PDI's (practising driving instructors). These are registered instructors but who have not yet passed the final part of their instructors test. These will display a pink triangular sticker in the car window.
I am a fully qualified instructor and as such, display a green, hexagonal sticker in the car.
How many lessons will I need?
There are many factors that determine how many lessons you will end up needing. Age, gender, attitude, personality and the ability to practise when not in lessons all contribute.
Once you have had a few lessons, we will be better able to judge this for you.
Do you have male and female instructors?
Yes, we have both male and female driving instructors, I must add that our females instructors are in great demand and often have waiting lists of over 3 -4 weeks for new clients, after saying this, all our male driving instructors are just as patient, experienced and highly qualified.
Can I have the same instructor for all my lessons?
For sure, the only time we would even consider changing instructors would be at the clients own request, all are instructors are hand selected, all are friendly and patient and have the necessary attributes of great instructors, hence their high grades. (Did you know that all qualified driving instructors have a grade of between 1 and 6, grade 6 being the highest grade which is very difficult to achieve and takes years of patience, personal development and dedication, these grades are regularly reviewed by the DSA, driving instructors are re-graded after every check test.
What type of training vehicles do you use?
We use the brand new shape Vauxhall Corsa and Citroen C3. All are dual controlled and fully air conditioned for your comfort. Did you know that the Vauxhall Corsa has been voted the best learner driver car by the DSA / DIA for the past 5-6 years.
Do you have a individual pick up service?
The place of pick up is agreed prior to the lesson, mostly it is either the Uni or home, we can also drop off in Town or at the Uni if agreed by the instructor prior to the commencement of the lesson.
Do you work weekends?
Most instructors work Saturdays, some work Sundays, all keep their own diaries so it is down to them which days they work and take off, but most will work a Saturday morning at the very least.
Can you pick up after college?
Yes, If agreed prior to the driving lesson we can pick up from School, College or even Uni, the lessons can end at home if requested.

Which L Test centre do you use?
