Liam's Quick Q&A

Why did you become a driving instructor?
Passing my driving test was one of my greatest achievements, it was one of the best feelings in my life.

I wanted to be give that feeling to someone else!

Most memorable driving lesson?
As a trainee I had just picked up a new car, I’d had it less than 2 weeks when I was joining Dunnings bridge road on a lesson, stopping for traffic the car behind didn’t notice and went straight into the back of us. Thankfully everyone was ok but certainly one that stands out!

Best Part of the job?
The look on the pupils face as they have just passed, the drive home afterwards is just amazing to be apart of.

Worst part of the job?
The fails 😒 That drive home is horrendous

Driving Lesson Reviews

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

I passed first time with only 4 minors yesterday after being taught by Liam. I couldn’t recommend him enough! He’s a really nice person and helps you to stay calm and understands when you make mistakes or forget things and simply helps you understand how to do them better next time. His teaching technique is brilliant, explaining everything in full detail before you attempt it e.g. Manoeuvres, roundabouts, one way systems etc. He gave me a talk before my test to keep me as calm as possible and told me to have faith in myself and look what happened! Genuinely couldn’t thank him more for the time and effort he put into teaching me to drive and helping me have confidence in myself. Thank you Liam!


Just passed today with Liam, massive thanks to him as he is a brilliant driving instructor, wouldn’t recommend anyone else he puts you so at ease and it’s a friendly fun learning environment, I’ve now got the qualifications and the confidence to drive on my own. Couldn’t be happier learning with the driving academy – great prices too.


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.
