ABOUT MY DRIVING LESSONS
THE 3 STEPS TOWARDS DRIVING INDEPENDENTLY
Under current legislation, there are 3 steps you need to go through before you receive your driving licence. You'll need a provisional driving licence before beginning lessons. Application forms are available from your local post office. You do not have to have passed your theory test to begin lessons. Theory test certificate is valid for 2 years from the pass date.
Your theory test requires you to score 43 out of 50 points in a multiple choice quiz and 44 out of 75 in the Hazard Perception section. I'll help you prepare with hints, tips and revision advice.
THE PRACTICAL TEST
The test will last for approximately 40 minutes on various types of roads including dual carriageways. You will be asked to carry out a specific manoeuvre and possibly an emergency stop. Approximately 20 minutes of the test will be following Sat Nav directions. 1 in 5 tests will not use Sat Nav, but candidates will be asked to follow road signs for a similar length of time. A show me and a tell me question will be asked before and during the test.
The result is given immediately at the end of the test.

Encouraging and gentle-approach.
Passed first time!! I started driving with Alan in February 2015. I can't lie - I wasn't an absolute beginner, I had taken one test before with another instructor (and failed, when I was 18). I had however not driven at this point in over two years and had lost all confidence in driving.
It's now been five months since I passed my test and I can't believe how well, and confidently I drive now. I suffered severe panic attacks with my first instructor, was getting nowhere and becoming frustrated and almost gave up for good. Alan was gently encouraging and had a very structured approach to our lessons and made lots of notes on my progress, allowing him to plan future lessons in advance and be prepared on the day. I honestly can't thank Alan enough - I owe my success in driving safely and confidently to him and I'm so grateful for that.
Top notch Alan Beckett is friendly, flexible and thorough. His methods are spot on and help even the most nervous driver pass the infamous test. Patient and understanding, his experience shows with helpful tips and tricks that can set anyone on the path for success. I would recommend him to anyone.
