You must be 17 years of age and over and produce a valid UK/N. Ireland provisional Cat B driving licence in order to start your driving lessons. You must meet the minimum eye test requirements, which means you must be able to read a standard UK approved number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5 metres (67 feet). If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses in order to meet this requirement then you must wear them whenever you drive.
To help you learn and prepare to pass your theory test as well as an having excellent knowledge and road sense and acquire the safe skills you will need to drive safely for life, I recommend you to study the following (in book or app format):
• The Official DVSA Guide to Driving the essential skills
• The Official Highway Code
• Know your traffic signs
• The Official DVSA Theory Test
You will not be put into a traffic situation that you cannot cope with. If you have never driven before, your instructor will drive you to a very quiet residential area to enable you to become familiar with the controls of the car before having to deal with busy traffic.
The Learning Car
you will be driving is a brand new Ford Focus 1.5 TDCi with dual controls and fully insured by the AA.
A driving assessment of about 10 minutes is the best way to ascertain your level of ability, awareness and competence to devise a well structured method of teaching/learning, incorporating all the modules required by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and preparing you to pass your driving test 1st time.
For those who live in Radstock, Bath and Bradford-on-Avon then Bristol/Brislington BS4 5JX and Chippenham SN14 6LH, are the closest. NOTE: I do not cover Bristol, Bath or Chippenham areas for driving lessons, I only take candidates to their tests there.
Your driving instructor will plan your driving lessons to be conducted in some of the routes of your actual driving test so you are well prepared for when you go out with the DVSA's examiner. He or she will also require you to know the "Show Me, Tell Me"
questions. You will be asked two questions: one 'show me' and one 'tell me' out of 15 questions.
Note: Failure on one or both of the "show me tell me" questions will result in one minor fault.
BIG changes to the driving test are coming in 2017-Don’t panic, it’s a good thing:
DVSA will be introducing an updated practical driving test - more info here.
The driving test will change from Monday 4 December 2017 to include following directions from a sat nav and testing different manoeuvres. The changes are designed to make sure new drivers have the skills they’ll need to help them through a lifetime of safe driving - learn about the changes here The 4 driving test changes
In the unfortunate event that you have just failed your driving test and need some more driving lessons, your driving instructor will again assess your level of driving and continue with fault finding/correction to ensure success next time.
This means you just passed your driving test... well done!
is a course designed to help you improve your newly gained skills and mature your driving. It is recognised by some insurance companies - check with the insurance company first
and enquire if they are in the scheme and if it helps you bring your first car's insurance premium down by around 35%
However, this is not an extra test, but focuses on 6 modules of your driving training:
- Town Driving
- All-Weather Driving
- Out of Town Driving & Rural Roads
- Night Driving
- Dual Carriageways
A minimum of six hours is required by the DVSA to cover the above modules but the number of sessions to be taken will greatly depend on the ability and progress of each individual pupil.
At the end of all your efforts you will gain a Certificate of Achievement and you will be ready for taking the keys for a safe long life of driving.
Extract from a web blog: Iv done pass plus, my insurance was supposed to be £2100 with direct line, but i saved 10% doing it online, and you get a further 20% for doing pass plus. And the great thing is you can take out your policy and do pass plus later and they will still 'refund' you the difference. Btw im fully comp, male, 18 and got a clio. Just find your cheapest quote and see if they accept pass plus and what the discount is, most of the big companys will accept it but they dont like to advertise it as much as its less money for them, its always best to google/ring the companys to see what the discoutn is because it varys alotif you do your pass plus in a day (like me) i done 6 hrs, wales and back, covering most parts of the course but you probz have covered alot of the things already in your lessons (eg night driving, bad weather) but if you didnt/dont the instructor just has to explain it to you as some things are unplanable(if thats a word)
