REMEMBER - SAFE DRIVING IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST THE DRIVING TEST

What to do before starting to drive

 

EYESIGHT

Make sure you can read a vehicle registration number with glasses or contact lenses if you wear them in good daylight at a distance of

  • 20 metres (66 feet)
  • 20.5 metres (67feet) Older style plates

 

DRIVING LICENCE

Make sure you have a valid provisional driving licence

 

READING MATERIAL

A copy of the revised HIGHWAY CODE is most essential to learn (or keep up to date for existing drivers) the rules and regulations for road safety.

There are books, DVDs and CD roms that I will be able to recommend to you, which will accelerate the learning process.

I will help and guide you through the theory and hazard perception from start to finish, while you are learning to drive safely, if required

 

PRIVATE PRACTICE

Plenty of practice to gain confidence is important for new drivers, so private practice should be gained as and when you feel safe to undertake this.

 

Remember though that you MUST have

 

  • Insurance for the type of vehicle you are driving
  • A valid MOT certificate
  • A valid tax disc
  • L plates that conform to legal specifications clearly visible on the front and back

 

If a learner is NOT driving the vehicle, they MUST be removed.

 

Also the accompanying driver MUST

 

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have held for at least three years and still hold a full EC/EEA licence for the category of vehicle being driven.

 

APPLYING FOR THEORY AND DRIVING TESTS

I will advise and help with the applying for both tests.

Mock theory test sheets and mock driving tests will be carried out at the appropriate times.

 

“SHOW ME TELL ME” QUESTIONS

A handout will be given and with help and practice, you will achieve and understand all the relevant questions asked by the driving examiner.

 

What will happen next

 

FIRST LESSON  (New beginners)

 

You will be collected from your chosen address and driven to a quiet location.

Your licence and eyesight will be checked

A briefing will be given on the cockpit drill and safe use of controls.

There will be plenty of time for getting behind the wheel and for being able to get a feel for the controls, without feeling any pressure whatsoever. (Remember the car is fully dual controlled)

The lessons will then continue at your own pace by following the DVSA (syllabus), The National Driving Standard

An individual pupil progress sheet will be updated after each lesson

 

FIRST LESSON (current learners)

You will be collected from your chosen address.

Your licence and eyesight will be checked.

Your driving will be assessed from the point of what you can do. We will then agree on a suitable plan of action to cover the relevant tuition to achieve a high standard of safe driving, and to pass the driving test
