Before you start lessons

A gear stick control knob - something you'll familiarise yourself with as part of our driving skills for beginners course.

Stage 2

Taking driving lessons

Some driving pupils find it easier to learn driving skills by watching an expert perform manoeuvres first. Many others find it useful to be able to refer back to a video tutorial in-between lessons so that they can rehearse the manoeuvre or routine in their heads before getting back behind the wheel.

Whether you’re studying for your driving test with us or not, we’ve made our library of driving tuition videos freely available to everybody.

Great friends love to share!

Resources for learning to drive

* According to the DVSA (the people who set the driving test) it takes on average 47 hours of driving lessons and another 20 hours of private practice to pass the driving test.

By using our structured training system we help our customers pass after an average of just 30 hours of driving lessons – that’s 17 hours less than the DVSA average!
