When Can I Start Driving Lessons?

Best Time to start Driving LessonsWhen can I start driving lessons Liverpool is a question all teenagers ask sooner or later, firstly, when you are sure you are ready.  It is vital that you have enough funds to complete your driving course.  There is little point in taking a few driving lessons ad hoc.  Even taking 10 driving lessons and then giving up because you cannot afford to continue is pointless.  Make sure you save up enough money to continue to learn to drive until you are ready to pass your driving test.  So do not waste your hard earned cash, save up then invest in your future as a safe and skilled driver.

Deal Hopping Will get you Nowhere.

With lots of start up deals on the market to choose from, you would think it is easy to learn to drive by going from start up deal to start up deal.  However, you will be taking two steps forward and one step back in the long run, and it will be difficult to retain the information from lots of different driving instructors.  If you take advantage of a start up deal and you find the instructor matches your learning style and you feel you have made some great progress stay with them!  It will be worth it in the end.

Change your Driving Instructor.

Having written the paragraph above, we felt it was only fair to put in a word of warning!  If you do not feel comfortable with a driving instructor, or you feel you are not making progress, change!  If your instructor is part of a driving school, like Insight 2 Drive, then phone the driving school to voice your concerns.  They will help you.  It also allows the driving school to help the driving instructor with any training they may need.  If you are with a ‘one man band’ then your only option is to simply change driving instructors.

Insight 2 Drive pupil, Boy with licenceWhen Can I Start Driving Lessons :

To start your driving lessons on the public road you must have a signed Provisional Driving Licence for category B, and be at least 17 years old.  (16 if you are receiving disability living allowance at the higher rate.) You can apply for your driving licence 3 months before your 17th birthday, but you cannot drive on the public roads or take your theory test until your birthday.  You must be able to read an old-style number plate in good daylight from a distance of 20.5 metres (that’s 67 feet, or about five car lengths).  The distance for the new- style number plates introduced in September 2001 is 20 metres (66 feet). You must be healthy and free from drink and drugs.

Who can teach you to drive?

Anyone can give you driving lessons but they must be over 21 years old and have held, and still hold, a full UK driving licence for at least 3 years.  The car you learn to drive in must be insured for you to drive it as a provisional licence holder.
