How old do I have to be to learn to drive? - You can start to learn to drive when you are 17 yrs old.

What must I do to prepare for lessons? - You must have your provisional licence which you can apply for when you are 16yrs of age. Then all you have to do is call us about 3 weeks before your 17th birthday (or earlier) to book your first lesson.

How many lessons will I need? - We all learn at different rates. You probably know someone who passed the test with only a few lessons, others may have taken many more. The average is around 35-45 hrs. Normally the older the student the more lessons required, a rough guide is two hours per year of age.

Can I have lessons with a friend or family member? - Lessons with a friend or family member will help reduce the number of lessons required with an instructor but it is recommended that this is in conjunction with instructor supervised lessons not instead of. Anyone wishing to accompany a learner driver must be over 21yrs and have had a licence for over 3 yrs and of course the car must be insured for the learner driver.

Is the car fitted with dual controls? - Our tuition vehicles seats and steering wheels have a wide range of adjustment to suit most students making them ideal for learning to drive. Maintained to the highest standard they are clean and tidy, well presented and our instructors are none smokers. They all have HE-MAN dual-controls; power assisted steering, air conditioning and electric windows.

Do you have an automatic car? - No but we can normally put you in touch with someone who does.
