Tips on how to reduce the cost of learning to drive.
  1. If possible have lessons of 2 hours duration. In most cases having a longer lesson can help reduce the total number of hours needed to reach test standard.
  2. Have regular lessons every week. This helps you to remember what you have learnt in previous weeks.
  3. Pay for blocks of lessons to take advantage of any discounts that may be available.
  4. Read and understand the Highway Code. This is a must.
  5. If possible try to do some driving at home in between lessons, with a suitably qualified supervising driver. Making sure that the vehicle is legal and in a roadworthy condition and that YOU are insured to drive that vehicle.
