Alan A's Quick Q&A

Why did you choose to become a driving instructor?
I had considered it previously but not gone ahead with it. I decided to make the move last year as I love teaching people new skills and I really enjoy driving.

What previous jobs did you have?
I have been managing Builders Merchants specialising in kitchens and joinery for the last 23 years.

How old where you when you passed your driving test?
I was 18

Did you pass first time?

If you could go back and give yourself advice when you learn to drive, what would it be?
Relax, take your time and most of all have fun and enjoy it!

When you aren’t teaching where can we find you?
At home relaxing with family and friends, or cleaning the car for my next lesson!

Favourite food?
A difficult choice, but it has to be Indian.

I have followed Everton since I was at primary school. To all Liverpool supporting pupils, don’t worry I wont hold it against you!

What music is on in your car?
Greatest Hits on the radio or I enjoy most music types…. But please no rap or hip hop. Why do they always say Yo?

Claim to fame?
I have had a drink with Jack Whitehall in a bar in London. What a top guy, really down to earth.

Driving Lesson Reviews

Some of our reviews we have received after people have learnt to drive with us in

Really is the best you can get. Alan A was such an amazing instructor and made me feel comfortable and safe throughout. He made me so confident in myself, whilst pushing me to do the best I could do resulting in (passing first time ) however even if I didn’t I know he’d still get me to where I’d need to be. He really is incredible at his job and can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Alan 🙃


Alan A is the best driving instructor around, I passed my test last week with Alan. I thought I was just one of those people who would never be able to drive but Alan believed in me and helped me every step of the way and we finally got that PASS!!!!! I felt safe and really at ease with Alan he is a great driving instructor he will always put in the time and effort with his pupils and isn’t just all about the money like some other driving instructors are. Going to miss our lessons, Alan is a top man couldn’t of asked for a better instructor x x


Driving Lesson FAQ's

Have a question? Want a quick answer? The most common driivng lesson FAQ's can be found below!

How do I book my first driving lesson in

If you have your provisional driving license then just give us a call or fill your details in on our callback form. A member of our team will answer any questions you have and pass your details over to one of our instructors.

What car will I learn to drive in?

We have a good variety of cars from super-mini’s to large SUV’s. Typically expect your lessons to happen in a Ford Fiesta / Vauxhall Corsa sized car. If you have any special requirements then feel free to ask us!

How many driving lessons will I need?

The UK average is 47 driving lessons and 22 hours of private practice before your driving test, but everyone is different. We’ve saw people pass in as little as 10 hours and others take longer. After your first few driving lessons your driving instructor will be able to give you an idea roughly how many lessons you will need.

What test do I need to take?

There are 3 tests you need to take to gain your full driving license. The first 2 tests are taken together, these are the theory test and the hazard perception test. You have to pass them both together. The final test is your practical driving test and this must be passed within 2 years of passing your first 2 tests.

How long does it take to learn to drive?

This is down to you. We see two types of learners, those committed to learning and taking regular weekly lessons, and those who aren’t too bothered and will cancel a lesson and then re-arrange for 2-3 weeks time. You can pass as quickly as you want, but if you don’t have the dedication or motivation to pass you can spend months trying to get your driving license.

How long are your driving lessons?

Our driving lessons all last 1 hour, but you can take them in 60/90/120/180 minute sessions if you prefer - speak to your driving instructor about your options if you want to do longer lessons. Note - some cheaper driving school only offer 50 minute driving lessons.

What is a provisional license?

You need to apply for a provisional driving license before you can start driving lessons. Without a provisional license you are not insured for driving on the road - we will ask to see your provisional on your first lesson.

Can’t I just learn with my Mum / Dad / Friend / Sister / Uncle??

Yes you can, however the person teaching you must meet certain criteria (Over 21, Have had a full license for over 3 years are the basic requirements) you must then also make sure the car is roadworthy, fully insured for a leaner driver and displaying the legal L plates. The most important thing is the person teaching / supervising you needs to know what is expected for your driving test and teach you correctly. If you want to speak to your driving instructor and ask for some advice.
