Obtaining a Provisional License

Many people are unsure about what the minimum age you can start learning to drive is, rumours have been going around for many years often confusing first time drivers.

You can send off for your provisional license when you are 16 but this does not become valid until your 17th Birthday.

Booking your first lessons

The day has come, you can legally drive on the road but how do you go about booking your first lesson? Let us take all the mystery out of it and do the hard work for you! Choose the right instructor someone you can interact with and feel comfortable with.

Ok, I've had my first lesson so how many more do I need?

There is no set number of lessons that will get you to test standard as each individual pupil learnes at their own pace, your instructor will be able to assess your progress and give you an estimate to how many lessons you need.

The Theory / Hazard Perception Test

You will have to pass it before you can book your all important Practical.

The driving theory test is a 50 question multiple choice test. To pass you must answer 43 or more questions correctly within 40 minutes.

The Hazard Perception Test shows a series 14 one minute video clips, each showing potential driving hazards involving pedestrians, road users and road conditions.

Yeah! I've passed it so now what?

Well done your half way there! You will continue with your driving lessons until you have reached test standard, then its time to book the Practical.

Practical Test

The practical driving test is a 40 minute drive in which you will need to show you can drive competently and safely in all kinds of driving situations. You will be asked to do two of the three reversing manoeuvres that you have practiced with your instructor and maybe an emergency stop.

To pass the test you will need to  have no serious faults and less that 15 minor faults !!!
