What happens after I book?
After agreeing on a date and time for your first lesson, I will pick you up at your choice of location, be it at home or at work.
I will then get you comfy and relaxed, and check your provisional or full licence, and also take some details of your address.
You will also need to take an eyesight test to be able to read a new style vehicle number plate from a distance of 20 metres (66 feet), and an old style number plate from 20.5 metres (67 feet) in good daylight.
Then I will structure the lessons around your needs, on which we work at your pace. The time you take to reach your test, depends on you, the individual, so we can work together to get a pass, and driving confidently and safely. Being nervous is a natural thing, so just relax and enjoy your lessons!!
