The Driving Lesson Process Explained

Learning to drive is one of the most important skills that you will learn in your lifetime. I will teach you using the very latest driving techniques set out by the DSA. I have a professional yet calm, and patient approach to make your driving lessons fun and enjoyable too, and specialise in teaching nervous clients to achieve their confidence when driving in Scarborough and beyond!

What You Can Expect

- I offer a free assessment meeting at your house to enable you to see the car and get to know me.

- I can check your eyesight by you reading a number plate from a distance of 20.2metres. If you wear glasses to do this you must wear them to drive. We can go through the legal stuff including checking your provisional license.

- Any personal details that I need will be kept on my home password protected PC and Data stick and will not be passed on or used other than for proof of business.

- I can guarantee that the whole lesson will be on a one-to-one basis with no dropping off of the previous pupil.

- Stuff happens! If I am running late I will ring you, and the time will be made up – either on that lesson or any subsequent lesson, I am only a phone call away.

- If you need to change lesson times or discuss anything then text me your name or leave a voice message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

- I can pick up/ drop off at different place, just tell me then I can plan the lesson accordingly.

- If you need a lesson before work, it's no problem, as well as the time of day is not an issue.

- Early morning to late evenings - lessons to suit.

- Block booking attracts discounts – regardless of status or profession – please ask for details when discussing options.

- Think of your timeframe for learning and passing the test. Weekly lessons are often too far apart and time will be lost re-capping at the start of every lesson.

- You will receive your personal 'Appointment and Training card' Please bring this with you to every lesson.

It is the trainees responsibility to study the 'Highway Code' throughout the tuition, and also study to attain the highest mark possible on the Theory & Hazard perception Test. Help & advice will be given throughout the tuition. The knowledge gained works two fold, it underpins the 'safe driving skills for life' tuition and should enhance a student's understanding of the rules and regulations of the road. We offer the chance to study using 'Theory Test Pro'.

Although you can start your driving lessons as soon as you have obtained your Provisional Driving licence, you cannot book the driving test until you have passed the theory test. You should be able to book your theory test with a few days notice. The test is taken at the Pearsons Office in Scarborough Town Centre opposite the Town Hall.

Pass or fail you are given your test results immediately after the completion of the test.
