We provide our learner drivers with the right conditions to receive good, sound training in all categories. Our friendly driving instructors have many years of professional experience. This makes learning with us straightforward and helps us offer you excellent support on your way to obtaining your driving licence.
If you’ve already begun to learn to drive and want to prepare for your driving test, rather than putting you on a beginners’ course, we can devise a tailored course that takes into account the knowledge and skills you have already developed, saving you time and money.
We provide long-term guidance during the preparation phase and are happy to answer any questions you may have. There's no need to feel under any pressure, taking away any need to worry before taking your tests. You can also receive information directly from our driving school. We'll be happy to offer you our expert advice!
Our driving instructors prepare you for the theory test which every learner needs to pass. You'll also receive valuable tips and information.
The theory test is divided into two parts:
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency recommends that most learners take at least 45 hours of professional tuition lessons and at least 20 hours with friends and family.
The average number of lessons is currently 35 hours. As all learners are different, some will pass more quickly than others.
Your driving test will start with an eyesight check and some vehicle safety questions. The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.
Please note we only operate from Launceston driving test centre.
Statistics prove that the risk of having an accident is highest during the first years of driving after passing the driving test. This is why the Government launched the Pass Plus programme. Backed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and major motor insurance companies, it is designed to help new drivers gain more experience and become better equipped for the demands of modern driving.
The course needs to be taken within twelve months of passing your driving test to qualify for the insurance benefits.
The PASS PLUS course is a six-hour module, which will include motorway, bad weather, city and rural driving. After completion you will be able to obtain a discount from many insurance companies, subject to your personal circumstances.
This course has proved popular because the saving on insurance is far greater than the cost of the course.
