F A Q s

If you have a question that isn´t on the list below then get in touch and we will be more than happy to help

Will other pupils be in the car with me?

NO! Unlike many schools, all our lessons are conducted on a one to one basis and you will not be sharing your lessons with other pupils.

How many lessons will I need?

There is no magical number, as this will depend entirely on how quickly you learn as we all learn at different speeds. Its recommended by the DSA (driving standards agency) that all learner drivers have a minimum of 45 hours tuition, with a further 22hrs of private practice to stand the best chance of passing the test first time.There are many factors that determine how many lessons you will end up needing. Age, gender, attitude, personality and the ability to practise when not in lessons all contribute.

Once you have had a few lessons, we will be better able to judge this for you.

Are you a qualified instructor?

Yes. In order to conduct driving lessons on a professional basis, all instructors must be registered with the DSA.(driving standards agency)

Some schools use ´PDI´s (practising driving instructors). These are registered instructors but who have not yet passed the final part of their instructors test. These will display a pink triangular sticker in the car window.

I am a fully qualified instructor and as such, display a green, hexagonal sticker in the car.

Can I have more than 1 lesson a week?

Of course you can. The less time between lessons will help you learn quicker as you will need to spend less time acclimatising yourself to the car each time. Please call to discuss availability.

Can I have lessons more than 1 hour long?

Yes, many pupils find it beneficial to have longer lessons and, depending upon available time slots, 1.5 and 2 hour lessons can be arranged.

How will I know I´m ready to take my test?

We will keep track of your progress and discuss this with you as appropriate. We will let you know when we feel you are ready to start thinking about booking a test.

Can I train without having passed the theory test?

Yes! As long as you have your provisional licence you can sign up for an assessment lesson today.

Do you have automatic cars?>

We are very sorry, but at Time to Pass Driving School we currently only have manual cars. Please be aware, if you pass your test in an automatic car, then your licence is restricted to just automatic cars. To change your licence from an automatic to a manual one, would require you to take the test again, which can be very costly.

How do I apply for a theory and practical test & how much does it cost?

You can book online or by phone on 0300 200 1122. You will need your driver number (from your provisional license) and a credit/debit card to pay the appropriate fee. For more details of how the test is conducted, etc. visit the DSA site

What will I need to bring to my first driving lesson?

You will need to bring both parts of your provisional driving licence with you to your first driving lesson. You are also required to read a car number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres so please bring with you glasses if you believe you would not be able to do this without them.

I´ve never driven before and I´m extremely nervous what will I do on my first driving lesson?

We understand that you will be nervous at driving for the first time and to help you with this we will take you to a quiet location, explain the controls of the car and allow you to get used to the vehicle before driving on major roads. Only when you feel ready to advance to the major roads will we do so.

How old do I have to be to start Driving Lessons?

For most of us it is 17 years but if you are currently getting Disability Living Allowance at the higher rate (mobility component) you can start at 16.

Do examiners have pass/fail quotas?

Examiners do not have a quota for test passes or fails. If you demonstrate the standard required you will pass your test.
