Entitled to drive

Your provisional drivers licence will entitle you to drive under the supervision of a driving instructor or full driving licence holder who is over the age of 21 and holds a valid full drivers licence for at least three years in the relevant vehicle category.

Once you have passed both the Theory Driving Test and Practical Driving Test you are able to exchange the provisional drivers licence to a full driving licence.

Once you have your provisional drivers licence you are now ready to start your driving lessons.

You can choose to start your driving lessons with a driving instructor or under the supervision of a full driving licence holder.

Many pupils choose to start lessons with one of our driving instructors.

You can choose to start on public roads or at our off road track.

The track is very quiet and without the pressure of other road users.

Parents or supervising full licence holder

When pupils first start to learn to drive we have found that they can either be very excited and eager to learn or find themselves to be very nervous and anxious.

Nervous or anxious pupils have the option to start at our off road track with one of our instructors in order to gain confidence before they enter public roads.

If starting with parents or a supervising full licence holder then you will need to make sure they have a suitable car fitted with L plates and the correct insurance to cover you while learning.

Practical Driving Test

The practical driving test has seen many changes over the years and what parents or a supervising driver may have been taught when they learned to drive may have changed significantly.

If the supervising driver is not up to date with the current coaching techniques in teaching a pupil to drive a car this can sometimes cause bad habits to form hindering the pupil's learning process.

Refresher Course

We would advise any qualified drivers wishing to take a pupil out for private on road practice to take a short refresher course with one of our driving instructors. 

This will help progress the pupil and many qualified drivers have said how it has transformed their own driving and confidence.

The instructor can work with the supervising driver as the pupil progresses with the learning to drive syllabus.

Refresher driving lessons and courses 

can be a good choice for a variety of pupils helping you to gain more experience and grow in confidence

Lessons and courses can begin with an introductory lesson that allows your driving instructor to ascertain
your needs and devise the best-tailored programme for your refresher driving lesson or course.
