    Are theory training courses available at your driving school?

    Yes. We actually have our very own online theory training course that we guarantee to help every learner to pass the first time. This is FREE to all course candidates or can be purchased separately for a small fee.

    When is the best time to start the course?

    We may be able to offer an earlier start date on some occasions but we can advise you to start the course in no less than 4 weeks. We also advise a month if you have not got your theory so we can have enough time to plan everything from passing your theory test and we can source a test date for you.

    We typically start on a Monday and run through towards the test day. Each course is designed to cater to flexibility and is unique to each individual. Training sessions can be between 3-6 hours daily!
