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.

What our students say about us:

“Absolutely could not fault 1st Driving School and especially Dan Evans (my instructor) for helping me gain the skills and knowledge to ensure that I drive to a safe and high standard. It was incredibly easy to start learning, just by applying on the website and they allocated an instructor based on my location - they were friendly on the phone and told me how to go about applying quickly and efficiently. Dan was excellent at teaching and is very patient and friendly - helping me by correcting any issues I had quickly and effectively. Dan allowed me to be more confident when behind the wheel and scheduled our times for lessons based on my busy work schedule and was able to adapt and change times if/when needed. The app (TotalDrive) that was used meant I was able to see my progress and understand the points that I needed to improve on and also allowed me to see when my next lessons were, how many hours I had completed and how many credits I had. This combined allowed me to pass my driving test first time with only 3 minor faults and will aid me in driving to a high standard for the foreseeable future. Thanks again to 1st Driving School and Dan Evans!”

“I took lessons with Libby for just over a year. She took me from an incredibly nervous first-time manual driver to a more confident driver who passed first time. I couldn't have done it without her! I will definitely be recommending Libby and 1st Driving School.”

“Around this time last year I started doing my driving lessons with Rif. He is very calm and patient, very professional & also fun to have on my driving lessons. I have learned a lot on my driving lessons with him filling my gaps to the best of my knowledge preparing for my test. I'm glad that I had Rif as my driving instructor & honesty couldn't have asked for anybody else. It has been a great journey with him & if anybody is looking for a driving instructor i would highly recommend taking lessons with Rif.”
