If you want to get a full UK driving licence, (unless you are able to exchange an existing full EU licence under the EU’s reciprocal licensing arrangements), you will first have to have a UK provisional licence, then pass a theory and practical test to prove your basic competence to drive. Before you can start lessons, you will need to wait until you have received your provisional licence, which is in 2 parts, a card part and a paper part. You will also need both parts of your licence when you sit the theory and practical driving test, although you can start lessons before you apply for either the theory or practical test.
All prices quoted are per person and cover the cost of the instructor’s time, use of vehicle, fuel, insurance and VAT where appropriate. Lesson prices are normally quoted “per hour”, but there are introductory offers and prepayment discounts also available.
To supervise a learner driver you must be at least 21 years old and have a current full GB or EC/EEA motor car licence which must have been held for at least three years. Anyone who does not comply with these requirements could be liable to a maximum fine of £1,000, discretionary disqualification or 3-6 penalty points (as could the learner driver).
