Why choose this course?

-This 6 month Option is probable the best value for pupils who are at the beginning of their driving journey. As your "12 lesson" EDT programme will usually last 3-6 months, this course option will ensure you have access to my helpful videos right through your journey.

During a lesson, it can sometimes be hard to take it all in as you try to focus on the actual driving itself. Some of the key elements I use when teaching people to drive is videos, pictures and notes so they have something to look over when they are at home between lessons. 

 I have created this course to assist those learning to drive to better understand all the key skills of driving as well as prepare them for what to expect in the driving test.
