    Frequently Asked Questions...

    How much do the courses cost?

    The courses vary in cost price. This is due to many factors such as location, duration of course, whether your course is automatic or manual and which tests you need. You can get an instant quote online, on our booking page - just simply input your details and get going.

    Do you cover my area?

    We have instructors throughout the UK. With a 90% coverage of England. Please call 0800 112 3515 and speak to one of our friendly team members on 0800 112 3515 and ask today if you are not sure.

    Which course is best for me?

    We go by the DVSA's recommended amount of time needed to pass a driving test. This is currently at 47 hours. This means that if you have had 20 hours training previously we would expect you to need 25 hours of training to get to a good level to pass a driving test. However, there are many factors to consider. How long ago you had lessons, how well you did. Whether you suffer from anxiety or deep-rooted nerves. For an informal chat please call 0800 112 3515 and discuss with one of our team members.

    Do you offer automatic lessons?

    Yes, we do. This does depend on where your course will take place. Please call 0800 112 3515 to discuss this with one of our team.

    I am struggling to pass my theory can you help?

    Yes we can. We have an online theory training course which is FREE to all course students. This has helped over 2000+ students pass their theory test. it is video-based and helps students who struggle with reading.

    Do I need to pass my theory before I book a course?

    It is ideal if you have passed your theory. Many students have not got their theory when they book a course. We will help you pass your theory before your course starts with our online training programme.

    I live in a remote area, can I still get home pick-up?

    We aim to serve all students from their home pick-up. However, on a few occasions, we may not be able to. If this applies to you, we will arrange your course for your nearest town.
