Information about driving lessons
Whether you are a complete beginner or have previous UK driving experience, or indeed if you currently have an international driving licence which is about to expire, Passing Place offers flexible driving courses to suit your needs including standard, semi-intensive and intensive lessons. Don't worry if you feel nervous about starting to learn drive; lessons are tailored to your needs and experience (if any).
Learner driving lessons
You will progress through a structured course of lessons covering the complete Driving Standards Agency syllabus in preparation for your driving test. You will learn and develop skills such as:
- Use of controls
- Moving off and stopping
- The emergency stop
- Dealing with basic junctions, crossroads and roundabouts
- Town centre driving
- Driving on dual carriageways
- Progressive driving
- Defensive driving
- Independent driving (following traffic signs and markings)
- Straight line reversing
- Reserving to the left into a side road
- Turn in the road
- Reversing into parking bay
- Reverse parallel parking
- Help and advice on the Theory Test and Hazard Perception
- Mock driving tests (see below)
Mock driving tests
Mock driving tests are an invaluable tool in your training to pass the practical exam. Passing Place offers mock driving tests to give you a guide as to how the real driving test works; to see how you fair under test conditions; and to provide feedback on your performance after the test. Any problems identified on a mock test can then be worked on until they are corrected, before sitting the real test!
Intensive driving lessons
Intensive driving courses are available, for those wanting to learn as quickly as possible. This means taking many lessons in a short period of time (typically over a few weeks, though this period can be flexible) with a view to taking the practical driving test at the end of the course. Intensive lessons follow the same syllabus as standard learner driving lessons. Intensive courses will not suit everyone because there is a lot of material to cover and not much time to remember it all!
Refresher lessons are aimed towards full provisional driving licence holders who want to improve their driving, maybe after not having driven for a while, and to build confidence out on the busy roads.
Whether you've just passed your driving test or are a more experienced driver and are a little daunted by the prospect of travelling on the UK's motorways, taking some professional motorway driving training will be invaluable and make you better, more confident all round driver.
A Pass Plus course is designed for pupils who have recently passed their driving test and want to take some further lessons to gain more driving experience, particularly in road conditions unlikely to have been encountered in their learner driving course. The course has no examination at the end and can be completed in one full day. As well as gaining invaluable driving skills you will keep with you for life, you might also qualify for an car insurance discount.
Taxi Test training
If you are a full licence holder looking to become a taxi driver, the you will certainly require some professional help and guidance. A course of lessons will prepare you for everything you need to know to pass the taxi test, from an an initial assessment of your current standard of driving to fixing bad driving habits and being guided through the complete DSA taxi test syllabus.
Advanced driving courses
If you are looking to seriously improve your driving skills or take an advanced driving test, you will undoubtedly require some advice and training.
