Frequently Asked Questions

DVSA recommend approximately 45 hours of driver training with a qualified driving instructor and several hours with either family or friends.

I can’t guarantee you will pass first time. However, I will support you 100% with your learning journey and let you decide what is best for you. Remember FAIL means First Attempt In Learning. 

I recommend a minimum of 1 and a half hour lessons which allow you plenty of practice time.  This is not compulsory, 1 hour or 2 hour lessons are available on request. I work between 0800-1800 hours every day.

If you don’t pass. You can book another test online. However, you will need to wait a minimum of 10 days before you can re-take your test as learning needs to take place regarding the area the candidate was unsuccessful in.

I operate a fully flexible diary as I am mindful that people all lead busy lives and it seems to work well with all my clients.
