WHAT MUST I DO BEFORE I CAN LEARN TO DRIVE?.
You need to hold a valid Provisional Driving License and be aged 17 or over. If you do not have a provisional licence you can get an application form from your local post office or from Express Driver Training

HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED?
This will vary depending on a number of factors, for example – your age, learning ability, and previous experience. An average is to calculate your age and times by 1.5 to get potential amount of hours, although some people can learn in less than this and other take more. Please contact us for more information!
I AM NERVOUS – WILL I BE OK? OF COURSE!
Our instructors recognise that learning to drive can be a very daunting experience. Your instructor will guide and support you and you will learn at your own pace. Soon you will find your nerves fade and your confidence grows!
HOW MUCH DO DRIVING LESSONS COST?
We have various options available to you from pay as you go lessons through to driving courses. This information is available via the prices section of this website.
DO I NEED TO PASS MY THEORY TEST BEFORE I CAN START LESSONS?
No you don’t! Some people prefer to do this, particularly if they are planning to learn to drive intensively, but many people study for their theory test whilst they are taking lessons – this means your driving instructor can give you help with your theory too!
WHERE WILL I TAKE MY THEORY AND PRACTICAL DRIVING TESTS?
The DVSA have many theory and practical test centres all over the UK. Your chances of passing the test are the same which ever centre you use. If we book your test for you then we will arrange it for the most convenient centre for you and your instructor.
WHAT SORT OF CARS DO EXPRESS DRIVER TRAINING HAVE?
All of our cars are modern, air conditioned manual vehicles (at this time we do not teach automatic). Currently we are using Ford Fiestas because they are excellent to learn in.
DO YOU HAVE AN EQUALITY POLICY?
Absolutely – we welcome everybody regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, or disability (subject to the disability not legally preventing you from driving or affecting the safety of yourself, your instructor, or other road users). All of our instructors must adhere to this policy.
