Driving Test

The Driving Test in 1935. OK, so things have changed since then!
Light-hearted films apart, the best way to ensure that you are up to date for your test
is to learn to drive with a DVSA approved instructor.


How many lessons will I need?

Everyone is different, and it depends how much work you are able to put in yourself. Once we have met and you have had a first lesson, I will be able to give you a better answer!

When can I start?

If you are 17 or over and hold a valid provisional license, you can start to learn to drive. You do not have to pass your theory test first, though you cannot take your driving test before you have passed the theory test.

Are you a qualified instructor?

Yes. I am a DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) approved instructor.

Were you RED before?

Yes, that's right. I originally set up business as a RED franchise, but after a few successful years with RED, I established my own driving school in Aberystwyth.

What if I am nervous?

My main aim is to help you to become a confident and safe driver. The car is dual controlled, I am very experienced and I simply WILL NOT put you onto the road until you are ready.

Can I take Pass Plus with you?

Yes.What's more, if you are aged between 17 and 25 and a Ceredigion resident, you can receive up to 80% of your course fee paid for by Ceredigion County Council. Find out more
