1)  How much do lessons cost?

All lesson prices are shown on the prices page.

2) How many lessons will I need?

It is impossible to say how many lessons an individual will require.  The present  advice from the DSA is that a pupil needs about 40 hours of driving practice to reach the standard required to pass the driving test.  This could include private practice

3) When can I start?

It depends on when you are available.  At the moment if you have time during the day, you could start within a week.

4) Must my lesson be at the same time each week?

Not necessarily.  Many of my pupils are on shift work or have fortnightly college timetable.  Driving lessons will be arranged to suit.

5) Can I have more than one lesson per week?

Of course, you can have as many lessons as I am able to fit into my schedule.

6)  Do you do intensive courses?

Not in the recognised sense. This would mean that I am unavailable to teach all my other pupils.  However I will provide you with as many lessons per week as you and I are available.

7) Do you do "Automatic" lessons?

No,  I drive a Volkswagen Polo 1.2 Diesel  with Manual gearbox.  However if you have you own (automatic) vehicle I could teach you in that.

8) What is HPT?

This is the Hazard Perception test which is taken at the same time as the Theory Test.  You must pass both parts (at the same time) before you can book a practical test.

9) What help can you offer for the Theory Test?

I can provide you access to the Theory Test Pro web site which provides the DSA Theory Questions, HPT practise and video training to support my lessons.  This is include FREE as part of my lesson prices.  Access to other Theory practice sites is available via my links page.

10) How do I book my first Lesson?
Please telephone me.  We can then discuss your requirements and book a lesson at an appropriate time.
11) What car do you use?
You will drive a Volkswagen Polo 1.2 Diesel  with Manual gearbox..
