Learner Driver Information
During your practical test you will be asked two questions about the car you are using for the test. I will be going through these questions and the answers in one of your driving lessons. I will hand out a printed copy of these but if you would like to view it electronically,
(This seems to be a very popular link and is clearly hit by more than just my pupils. Feel free to download a copy to help you if you are a learner but be aware it is watermarked and copyrighted by me so may not be used by any other instructors)

I really recommend this book but I’ve not got any experience of the videos … yet. I’ve already used the handouts with a number of pupils, especially to help with confidence levels, so extracts from this book will be familiar to a few. The most significant was when a very nervous lady learner adopted the confidence building techniques and within a short time, quit the 15 year job she hated, passed her driving test first attempt, bought a car and got a new job. To say the least I was suprised at the transformation.
It’s not for everyone, I know, and some of it is a bit ‘out there’ but it seems to get results if you give it a try.
If you fancy having one of your driving lessons after dark just talk to me. It can come as a bit of suprise the first time you get behind the wheel at night. It’s probably best when you get closer to test standard. Don’t forget part of the Pass Plus course is night driving too.
