How many lessons will I need?
This is the most difficult question to answer, because it depends on the individual.
Younger people tend to learn quicker, but learning to drive is a very individual form of tuition and people will learn at different rates and the one golden rule a good instructor will use, is that you must only learn at your pace so that you will not be put into a situation in which you cannot cope before you are ready.
For people who have had some driving experience we recommend you take an assessment lessons with Peppers, then your instructor can give you some idea as to the number of lessons you may need.
I wish to learn to drive but I am very nervous about traffic?
Don’t worry, at Peppers all our instructors are highly trained and will help put you at your ease.
Your first lessons will be conducted on very quiet roads learning the basics of car control before you are gently introduced to busier road conditions.
Why do prices vary so much between different driving schools?
As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Cheapest is not always the best!
Check that you are getting full hourly lessons, (not all schools do).
Also you may end up doing more lessons with a cheaper school than if you chose a good one slightly more expensive. In the end you pay more. Look for a school with a good reputation – look at Peppers !
Who can accompany me whilst driving as a learner driver?
Anyone who holds a current full licence and has held that licence for at least 3 years and is over the age of 21.
What is the best way of learning to drive?
By far the best and quickest way, is to have professional tuition with an Approved Driving Instructor, combined with practice between lessons, when your instructors thinks you are ready.
