Refresher Courses

If you’re a new driver or a nervous driver, then you may want to have a refresher driving lesson. These lessons are very popular with those who haven’t driven for a while or people who have recently had a traffic accident. The idea behind out refresher courses is for you to experience safe driving in a controlled environment to help build your confidence. The refresher courses can often be a lot cheaper than advanced driving courses and you can take as many or as little as you want. You can tell your instructor what you want to cover such as defensive driving or rural roads. If you already have a driving licence and want to gain confidence then give us a call on 0151 283 2929.

Southport Driving Lesson Reviews

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

Passed my test today, Huge thanks to my instructor Mike for his patience and hard work, he is hands down an amazing instructor! Thank you for having confidence and patience in me! If anyone asks I will always recommend!!!


Passed today With Liam, had him for most of this year now with things getting delayed with COVID twice but he was always great with me had a laugh but also made sure he was teaching me the right things and In ways that I would understand and catered to my learning style couldn’t recommend Liam and the Driving Academy enough. Thanks Again Liam mate👍🏼


Would highly recommend, especially instructor Mike. He helped me since June with weekly lessons addressing any issues I was having until I was fully confident enough for my test, which I passed yesterday. If you want a calm, experienced and encouraging instructor he’s the man for you. Cheers Mike 🚗


Southport 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 Southport

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.
