I offer comprehensive training on the new driving test including up to date training on the use of the Sat Nav, car-parks etc. There is no short cut to becoming a good driver. The best way to learn is to have regular planned lessons and gain experience with a good driving instructor.
Don’t be tempted to take the driving test until your instructor tells you you’re ready. Also try not to listen to well minded people about the number of hours you require, when they took their test possibly (20 years ago) it was probably only 10 lessons. The volume of traffic, car technology and the cost of living have dramatically added additional pressure to taking your test before your ready.
Try to get as much private practice as possible, however don’t be tempted to learn from people who think they know better and teach you the way they were taught (20 years ago) undoing what the instructor has done. The instructor knows the high standard that is required.
A recent survey by the “AA” claimed that 1 in 6 qualified drivers have not driven in the last 3 years. If you feel this is you then I can help you gain your independence again with refresher lessons, guaranteed.
Part of learning to drive involves taking and passing the theory and hazard perception tests before you can even apply for the practical test.
The theory of driving is the most neglected aspect of learning to drive but is the most important one in terms of road safety and is the foundation of good driving skills.
The theory test must be passed before the driving test can be applied for.
The pass mark is 43 out of 50 multiple choice questions in 57 minutes.
The Hazard perception part of the theory test requires you to view 14 hazard video clips on the computer screen of approximately one minute each. You are required to watch these clips as if you were the driver. There will be 15 hazards to find – at least one on each clip. However, one clip will have 2 hazards. You click the mouse button whenever you think you can see a hazard developing. You can score between 0 and 5 on each hazard. Therefore the maximum you can score is 75 (i.e. 15 hazards x 5). To pass you need a score of 44.
The official link to booking the theory test will cost no more than £23.00(other websites may charge you a booking fee).

Pass Plus is a course designed after passing the driving test to give you the opportunity to improve your basic skills.Ask your instructor for more details.
My aim is not only to just teach people to pass the Theory, Hazard Perception and Practical Driving Test, but to continue to help new drivers develop their skills and knowledge. This will make them safer drivers on our roads.

These are supplied for home learning to ensure you get maximum value from every lesson.
