Driving Schools

Here's how you can get started Driving in the UK

  1. Get a Provisional Licence: You must hold a provisional license
  2. Follow the procedures: Visit any post office to get a D1 application form and complete it. Once completed, send this form with the fee to DVLA.

Wait for two to three weeks to receive the provisional license.

Now you are ready to learn to drive.

Going behind the wheel is a huge responsibility not just for you but also for the others on the road. It is imperative to develop your driving skills to the highest standards of safety and competency.

How to Choose a Driving Instructor?

When choosing an instructor there are several points to consider such as -

  • Are they available at times to suit you during weekends, evenings etc?
  • Does pick up and drop off time come from your hour?
  • How much do the lessons cost?

Most instructors will give an assessment and suggest how many lessons you are likely to need. You can also ask your friends and family for recommendations. Questions such as personality and teaching methods, reliability, and success rates can help you to make up your mind about selecting a driving instructor.

Driving courses take care of booking both tests on your behalf, removing the worry of booking and getting the dates of your choice. You spend long periods of time in the vehicle with your instructor, building a good trusting relationship which will benefit the more nervous learner.
