Due to demand following return after the last lockdown, we are experiencing very high levels of enquiries for driving lessons. We understand you all want to start asap and get to tests as soon as possible and are feeling frustrated when all you are hearing is that instructors are fully booked and cannot accommodate you at this time.
Unfortunately, all our instructors are very busy and fully booked, we have been adding those happy to wait onto a waiting list to book in once spaces open up for their area in the future months. This is the best we can offer at this moment in time and will most likely be like this now for the next 12 months at least.
Currently the wait time may be 6 months or longer depending on the times pupils are available to take their lessons, the more flexible you can be about when you can take a lesson, the sooner we may be able to find a space to start you, but for those only able to take lessons either evening time or weekend, or restricted available times, it could reach well into 2022 before we can offer an appointment to start your lessons.
Due to the high number of calls we are receiving along with being out on the road trying to deliver lessons we are not always able to answer or return everyone’s call, so to help you may find it best to text us or email your enquiry to us and we will aim to reply within 48 hrs.
If you are looking to book an intensive or semi intensive driving course please be aware that practical test waiting times is also 6 months or more at some test centres, a few test centres have no availability to book a test at all at present, so, accounting for the test waiting times and instructor availability we recommend you consider booking now for 2022 as we anticipate that it may take us most of 2022 to catch up on the backlog and get back to normal.
Only those on the waiting list already and those pre paid for their lessons will be offered spaces as and when they open up, so if your not pre-booked or not on the waiting list already you may struggle to find an appointment with us.
We thank you for your patience and we understand the inconvenience of not being able to get your lessons started straight away but due to the pandemic it has had a massive impact on our industry and we are trying as best we can to accommodate as many pupils as possible to help you achieve your full licence as soon as is possible to do so. Thank you.
