Before you can start learning to drive, you must apply for a provisional licence.
Read more about Applying For A Licence here.

The average person requires around 45 hours of tuition and a further 22 hours of practise before they are test-ready (according to the DVSA). However, every person is different and some may need fewer hours, while others may require more.

We strive to ensure that every person who learns to drive with RED, does so in the most comfortable environment possible. If you need to change your instructor – for example, you are moving to a new location – please let us know and we can organise a replacement.

We offer a no quibble refund policy, so you’re always safe in the knowledge that if you have to stop your lessons for any reason, your money is not lost.
