You Ask, We Answer!

Yes, we do.

We suggest that if possible, you purchase a block of ten hours to benefit from the £25.00 discount.  If for any reason you are not delighted with your lessons I will make a refund and any unused lessons purchased will also be refunded.

Yes, I will offer you a refund on EVERY lesson you take unless you are delighted with both the tuition and service you receive.

Sorry, we don’t offer intensive or ‘crash courses’. Intensive courses don’t suit everybody. If you’re a complete beginner, an intensive course may feel overwhelming as it can be tiring spending several hours every day in the car with the pressure of passing first time to avoid feeling you’ve wasted your money. However, if you have driving experience and learn well under pressure, an intensive course may be a good option.

Sorry, we only offer lessons in a manual car. However, I’m happy to recommend automatic driving instructors who I know are professional and trustworthy.

Taking a regular weekly lesson has proven success as it provides continuity, helps with the retention of knowledge and will reduce your learning period. We will aim to offer you a regular lesson slot that you can book in advance and keep from the time you commence your lessons until you pass your test.
Most of our customers book one or two hours per week. Two hours per week is ideal as it makes more efficient use of your learning time and you can be at driving test standard much sooner. But for most of my customers one hour per week is more practical. More importantly the lessons should be regular and consistant.

Yes, you can pay on the day and we don’t ask for lessons to be paid in advance. You can pay cash, PayPal, cheque or bank transfer.

Yes, we do offer lessons on a Saturday morning for customers unable to take lessons during the week. However, they are usually in high demand and will be subject to availability.

It’s almost impossible to know until you begin your tuition. We are all individuals with regards to learning a new skill and driving is no exeption.

The DVSA suggest that the average is around 47 hours, but we find that most of our students are test ready much sooner. Our recommendation is to book ten hours of lessons and once completed, you will have a much better idea of the number of lessons you will need.  I like this article from Ingenie.

We will always pick you up at your preferred location. That could be from your home, school, college, work or anywhere else you choose. We will also drop you off at your preferred location.

Yes, you can take one hour lessons.

Unfortunately, we have no female instructors. However, I’m happy to recommend female driving instructors who I know are professional and trustworthy.

We are very proud of our 1st time pass rate, however it’s impossible to give the exact % as we have tests on a regular basis and it will continually change. It is, however, consistently above the average for our local driving test centres.

It really depends on when you would be available to take your lessons. It can at times be several weeks, so it’s probably best to contact us four to six weeks before you would like to start. We will always do our best to start customes at short notice if at all possible.

Yes we do, but we don’t pretend to be experts in special needs. As driving coaches we do understand the importance in understanding how our customers prefer to learn. We are experienced in adapting our teaching methods so that they best suit our customers. The best advice I can give is to contact us and discuss your requirements.
