Testimonials

“Fantastic! Natalie is incredibly knowledgable about teaching people to drive! No faffing about, gave me the confidence and belief I could do it from Day 1. Genuinely a nice trusting lady who helped me pass within 3 months of starting to drive with her! I look back and thank her for everything she did for me.”

 

Bradley Austin

“Sharon Harper is the best driving instructor and I could not recommend her enough to prospective learners. After previously failing my test twice with 2 different driving schools, Sharon rebuilt my confidence and enjoyment in driving and I have recently passed my test thanks to her! Sharon is calm, knowledgable and extremely easy to get on with! Thank you Sharon!”

 

Joanna Shimell

“Ken is an amazing and very patient instructor. He was great at making me feel comfortable and confident. I will miss my lessons now I’ve passed 1st time with 3 minors.”

 

Amanda Dodsworth

“I (Rosie, daughter of Nick) had Paul M as my instructor. He passed me first time, always kept my nerves down, made sure I didn’t panic and was always positive – just what I needed! Would recommend to absolutely everyone. Thanks Paul xx”

Frequently Asked Questions

What age to I need to be to learn to drive?

You can apply for a provissional driving licence when you’re 15 years and 9 months old, which means that you can start learning to drive. You have to be 17 years old and have passed your test to drive in a car on your own, unless you have the enhanced rate of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), when you can drive at 16 years old (if you have pased your test).

What do I need to pass to get a full drivers licence?

You need to pass your driving theory test and your driving practical test to be able to get a driving licence.

What are Advanced driving lessons?

Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. The lessons are taken with a fully qualified driving instructor, over the period of time required by the driver.
The test is taken with an off duty Police Officer. We recommend at Always Pass that you take a ROSPA or DIA training & test
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – Leading health and safety training providers. RoSPA is widely regarded as the UK’s leading voice in health and safety programme delivery, and is the longest running safety organisation with one of the widest selection of courses.

What do I have to do to become a driving instructor?

To become an ADI you must complete three qualifying tests. Part one tests your theory knowledge, part two tests your driving ability and fitness, and part three tests your ability to instruct learner drivers.

When you first apply, an enhanced security check will be carried out by Access NI. Once completed, DVSA will send you your eligibility number which you will need to book a theory test.
If you have concerns about your criminal history you are advised to speak to DVSA before committing to any fees for packages offered by ADI training providers.
You must pass all three tests, in order, within two years. If you fail any of the tests three times, you must wait two years from the date you first sat the theory test before beginning the process again.
