Frequently ask Questions

How can we help you?

You need to be at least 17 or 16 if you get the enhanced rate of mobility component of personal independence payment (PIP)

You will need a provisional driving licence which can be applied for at the post office or online

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommend 44 hours of professional lessons to pass a driving test, everyone learns at their own pace so this is only an average figure.

Your lessons can be one, one and a half or two hours long depending on your availability and your driving instructors.

Automatic vehicles are easier to learn in and if you have a disability or limited mobility they will probably be the best choice for you. However if you pass your driving test in an automatic vehicle your licence will only allow you to drive an automatic, if you pass your driving test in a manual vehicle you are legally allowed to drive manual and automatic.

No you can start your driving lessons before passing your theory test, all of our pupils have free access to the app "Theory Test Pro" to help you practice for the theory exam.

You can pay cash on the day with your driving instructor or through our website.

Tim helped greatly in boosting my confidence and giving me the encouragement always to believe in my self. I would and will recommend Tim to all friends and family in the future. Top guy, will genuinely miss doing my weekly lessons with him and sharing our life stories! Thank you Tim and thank you 1st Driving school.”
