iPass Driving Tuition?
I provide tuition in a way that is easy to understand and I can adapt to suit your needs. Learning to drive is something that is a natural progression for some and for others it can be the biggest challenge they have encountered. Everyone is different and however you learn you can be assured that it will be an enjoyable process and never be intimidating.

How long are lessons?
Lessons can be 1 or 2 hours long.
How often should I have
Its entirely up to you, I recommend 2x1 hour lessons or 1x2 hour lesson per week.
How many lessons will
I need before I take my practical test?
Everybody is different and learns at different rates, There is no set number of lessons you must take before you take your test. The DSA (Driving Standards Agency) states that those who pass their test have had an average of 45 hours of professional tuition combined with 22 hours of private practice.
Can I practice with
family and friends?
If you intend to do this they must be over 21 and have held a FULL British License for the type of vehicle you are driving for at least 3 years. Also you have to be certain that you are insured to drive the vehicle.
It’s worth remembering that learning with a friend or relative means you could pick up their bad habits.
What kind of car will
I be learning in?
The car is a Ford Fiesta Style 1.2 Petrol 3dr, fitted with dual controls.
What is the cheapest
way to book lessons?
The Intro Lesson is available to those who are just starting and haven’t had a lesson before. This costs £22 and is 2 hours long, saving you £22.
After this lesson you can then book a block of 10 hours which costs £200, another saving of £20, so altogether you are saving £40 getting 12 hours for the cost of 10.
For those who have had lessons previously the block booking of 10 hours for £200 is available.
Can I start driving lessons before I have passed my theory test?
Yes, I recommend that you take practical lessons while preparing for your theory test. The combination of practical experience and theoretical learning can reinforce the subject making it easier to understand and remember. This should help you perform better at the theory test.
What should I study
to pass the Theory Test?
The DSA publish many books and CD-ROMs to help you that cover the multiple choice questions, hazard perception section and also the practical driving test. I would recommend ‘The Highway Code’ ,’Driving The Essential Skills’ and ‘Know your Traffic Signs’, you will find all the answers to the theory test questions in these publications. The CD-ROMs are also very helpful. More details on products available can be found on the DSA website, or the TSO Online Bookshop.
Do you provide Theory
I can of course advise you on the best way to study and help answer any questions you have whilst studying and clarify any grey areas that you are having difficulty with. The more you can study in your spare time the better, as it then takes less time away from your practical lessons.
