If you gave up on driving because you didn’t get on with your instructor, because your practical test was a nightmare or simply because life got in the way, you’re way ahead of a lot of people. You’ve probably got quite a lot of experience and skills under your belt already, it just needs a bit of tweaking. We’re here to help you build confidence on the road, pass your test and become a safe driver for the rest of your life.

Checklist

Even failing your driving test is not the end of the world. In fact, if you already know what it’s like to sit a test, you can prepare yourself better for the big day. We’ll help you figure out what went wrong the first time round and we’ll work on that with you. In our experience, the most common stumbling blocks are:

  • Hazard awareness
  • The Mirrors – Signal – Manoeuvre routine
  • Approaching junctions and roundabouts
  • Traffic signs
  • Changing gear
  • Speed
  • Emergency Stop
  • Parallel parking
  • Turing your car
  • Adjusting to weather conditions
  • Moving off uphill
