You must choose Sandra as your driving instructor!! Sandra is the best instructor you could ask for, patient, clear, kind and just such great company for your 1-2+ hour drive! Personally I was very anxious about learning to drive and Sandra was really understanding and patient with all of my questions and worries. Sandra also tailored lessons to work on areas I needed to work on or increase confidence in. I was very pleased to have passed first time which is all due to Sandra’s lessons, support and mock tests. I am so happy to have passed my test but genuinely sad because I miss my lessons with Sandra!

Sandra is such an outstanding driving instructor! She is friendly, kind, and understanding. Her lessons are always so enjoyable and informative. Through her vast experience and knowledge, each lesson felt personally tailored to the things you struggle with the most. Above all, she has provided me with the confidence and skills to stay safe on the road after passing my test.

sandra was one of the most patient and friendly people i’ve met, she really sparked my enjoyment in driving. i started learning reluctant to the idea i was going to carry on, convinced i wouldn’t like it and would be too scared. i passed my test first time and it was all down to the help sandra gave me to feel happy behind the wheel. we had many conversations and laughs and i’ll never forget the confidence sandra had in me and my driving ability. thankyou so much!

Sandra is one of those rare driving instructors that fulfils what makes a good driving instructor great: having the biggest patience for a student driver whose dyslexic, and autistic. She took my needs on board and made me gain confidence in my ability to read the road and trust myself behind the wheel. Her use of her colourful magnetic cars on a junction board proved essential and useful to my learning- they were fab visual aids. Sandra never lost her spark with me, and believed in my driving abilities. She has been a friend, and I could not ask for anyone better. Thank you for all your help Sandra. I look forward to doing Pass Plus with you. Back for more!

Sandra is a brilliant driving instructor and I can’t recommend her enough!! Before having any lessons I was super anxious about driving but with Sandra’s guidance I gained confidence and passed first time! Her lessons were always fun and she made everything about learning to drive easy to understand. Her kind and patient approach was super helpful and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, thank you so much Sandra!x

Sandra is a brilliant instructor! She really went out of her way to figure out how I learnt and tailored each lesson to ensure that as much was learnt as possible. She's very knowledgeable in all aspects of driving and road safety but also just really quite fun to be around. This made lessons enjoyable. I really enjoyed learning to drive with Sandra and couldn't recommend her any more highly!

Sandra is a great driving instructor. I had 25 lessons with her, and passed first time! Lessons were always fun, and didn't feel stressful or intense, but a warm environment in which I could really develop my driving skills. Not only this, but Sandra also provided me with a plethora of really helpful resources to help me pass my theory and my practical tests. I would thoroughly recommend Sandra as a driving instructor to anyone who is looking for one.

Licence and Test Information

Obtaining Your Licence
In the UK, driving tests are conducted by the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Check out the website at www.gov.uk , then click on the link for Driving and Transport. This contains all the information that learners and new drivers need to know.

Before you can learn to drive a car, moped or motorcycle you must apply for a provisional driving licence. If you already hold a valid full driving licence and want to learn to drive larger vehicles, minibuses or buses, you will need to apply for provisional entitlement for these vehicles. You have to be 17 years of age to obtain a provisional licence, but you can apply up to three months before your 17th birthday.

You can apply for your first provisional driving licence for a car, moped or motorcycle using the government’s secure and easy to use online service at: gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-driving-licence Or the application form (form D1) can be obtained from your local Post Office if you would like to apply by post.

The Theory Test
Before you apply for your theory test you will need a provisional licence. The website www.gov.uk , will give you all the information you need to know. We suggest that you only book your Theory Test through this website, as there are rogue traders out there offering to book for you at inflated prices (the current fee is £23.)
The Practical Test
The practical test will last approximately 40 minutes beginning and ending at your local Driving Test Centre. Throughout the drive, you are permitted a maximum of 15 driver faults. A serious or dangerous fault would result in a fail. We will work with you to agree on a test date, making sure you feel ready and ultimately confident to drive alone. We will do practice mock-tests so we can focus on any areas that need brushing up before test day. We are happy to book a driving test on your behalf, but if you would like more information go to: www.gov.uk , The current test fee is £62.00.
The Pass Plus Course
Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test. This is because of their lack of driving experience.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver. You can take a Pass Plus course at any time. However, it’s mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test. Some insurance companies may offer a discount on successful completion of the course. Check out www.gov.uk/pass-plus,if you would like more information.

Pass Plus takes at least 6 hours and consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:
• in town
• in all weathers
• on rural roads
• at night
• on dual carriageways
• on motorways
