Our Beginners Driving Lessons are designed to take you from your very first experience behind the steering wheel to full driving licence holder. Everyone has to start somewhere and on your first driving lesson we aim to get you setting off and stopping the car, as well as changing gear and learning about simple junctions. You’ve probably heard lots of talk about stalling and how difficult it can be to control the clutch. Well, in truth it’s not as hard as some people make out. Once we understand how things work and what we have to do to control them it’s easy! The majority of people are surprised how much they achieve in the first hour.
So, what is the secret to successfully learning to drive? Well, the answer is simple – it’s you! To learn to drive well requires a fair amount of commitment from you. Ideally two lessons per week will help you develop at a reasonable rate. But, if you can’t do that then a regular weekly lesson is fine. Do bear in mind that the national average for people passing their driving test first time is approximately 44 hours of lessons plus another 20 hours practice with parents or family members. Everyone learns at a different rate and the above figures are an average, so realistically you should be budgeting for 30 to 40 hours.
