Frequently asked questions


Below are some of the questions prospective and new pupils often ask. Please feel free to call should you have any queries that you would like to discuss directly

How much are your driving lessons?

We have a variety of different courses available so our prices vary accordingly depending upon which direction you would like to pursue and whether you would like manual or automatic lessons.



Will other pupils be in the car with me?

NO! Unlike many schools, all our lessons are conducted on a one to one basis and you will not be sharing your lessons with other pupils.


How many lessons will I need?

There are many factors that determine how many lessons you will end up needing. Age, gender, attitude, personality and the ability to practise when not in lessons all contribute.



Once you have had a few lessons, we will be better able to judge this for you.


Are you a qualified instructor?

Yes. In order to conduct driving lessons on a professional basis, all instructors must be registered with the DIA.



Some schools use 'PDI's (practising driving instructors). These are registered instructors but who have not yet passed the final part of their instructors test. These will display a pink triangular sticker in the car window.



I am a fully qualified instructor and as such, display a green, hexagonal sticker in the car.


Can I have more than 1 lesson a week?

Of course you can. The less time between lessons will help you learn quicker as you will need to spend less time acclimatising yourself to the car each time. Please call to discuss availability.


Can I have lessons more than 1 hour long?

Yes, many pupils find it beneficial to have longer lessons and, depending upon available time slots, 1.5 and 2 hour lessons can be arranged.


How will I know I'm ready to take my test?

We will keep track of your progress and discuss this with you as appropriate. We will let you know when we feel you are ready to start thinking about booking a test.
