A: Lots of people have their first driving lesson with their mum or dad and most generally find it to be a hair-raising experience! While you can drive with any adult over the age of 21 who has held their full UK driving license for over three years, it is recommend by the DSA that new learners choose a qualified instructor for their lessons.
Q: Why choose a qualified instructor?
A: Driving lessons are designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to become a safe and confident driver. Choosing a qualified instructor ensures that pupils cover all areas of practical driving and driving theory including manoeuvres, independent driving and the all important ‘show me, tell me’ questions which will appear on the practical driving test. Qualified instructors are also familiar with test routes and test methods and will be able to better prepare their pupils for their test dates.
