The driving instructor’s will help you learn to drive and assist with the theory test

FREE Online hazard perception and theory training is offered to our customers as part of the learning process, and has a very high 1st time pass rate, so no books, apps or extra costs, so why would you look elsewhere, for your driving lessons.

How long will it take me to pass ?

This is a question we get asked a lot, and it all depends on how you learn. People learn at different rates, some sooner than others, so it is a difficult question to answer until you start learning.

Learning to drive is an investment in your future, and at Lendrum’s Driving School we are committed to teaching you the skills and techniques you need to be a safe driver for life, this includes your driving test, however we want you to be at a higher standard of driving, so when you go out on the road for the first time in your shiny new car, you will have all the skills and confidence to drive yourself, and not just have been taught how to pass a test or drive test routes, which you will never drive again.

The more lessons you take, generally means less time it takes to learn to drive, however this can be expensive, so the majority of people have 1 ½ or 2 hours a week, but we can do as many hours as your budget will allow.

Another fantastic way of saving time , is if you are able to drive with parents or a partner between driving lessons, this is probably the most cost effective and time efficient way of passing sooner. If you are able to do this then your driving instructor will be able to discuss your learning and progress with your parents or partner and help them to help you.

The DVSA are the government agency behind all things driving and they have said it takes on average 47 hours of professional tuition plus 20 hours of practice with friends and family to pass the driving test.


What lessons are available once I've passed my driving test?

Ask what lessons are available after the driving test. A top school will understand that passing the driving test is just the first stepping stone. Now it is up to you if you want to learn more, no one is telling you to do so, but a good school will have additional courses you can take. These will include but not limited to, motorway lessons, Pass Plus, defensive driving and other advanced driving strategies.

If a school offers these courses you can be confident they are specialists in the field of driver training.

To pass your driving test you must demonstrate you are a safe driver and you can describe what it is to be safe by the following 4 points.

  1. Following the Highway Code
  2. Having the attitude of a safe driver
  3. The ability to spot hazards
  4. Being in control of your car

So it makes sense that right from the very first driving lesson you adopt these principles of safe driving into everything you are going to learn. That way, when you go to the driving test and once you have passed it, you automatically drive in safe style.

Failing your driving test will cost you in the region of £300, that’s for extra lessons and a new test. So it is important you are prepared, this is how we measure your preparation.

  1. You have completed your progress report card
  2. You have passed a mock driving test
  3. You are driving without the assistance of your instructor

Not only will you be prepared but you have every right to be confident. Now you are in a position to pass your driving test and to be a safe driver once driving by yourself.
