Driving Lessons

Let us take care of you at LA Driving School, calmly coaching you to success. One of the most common complaints heard from learners switching to us from other driving schools is that they felt too pressured by their instructor; saying ‘They kept shouting at me’, ‘I was just told what to do’. We let you progress at your own pace, and don’t waste your time with endless theory or diagrams in car but instead carefully explain, demonstrate and guide you through the practical process of driving. That is not to say we ignore the theory side, with a whole host of online features meaning you can continue, and keep track of, your learning process any time, any where, including excellent Theory Test support, with 1000s of mock questions and 100s of hazard perception clips with which to practice. In addition to our standard Learner training, we also offer the following speciality courses;


Pass Plus


Statistics prove that the risk of having an accident is highest during the first years of driving after passing the driving test. This is why the Government launched the Pass Plus programme. Backed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and major motor insurance companies, it is designed to help new drivers gain more experience and become better equipped for the demands of modern driving.

The course needs to be taken within twelve months of passing your driving test to qualify for the insurance benefits.

The Pass Plus course is a six-hour module, which will include motorway, bad weather, city and rural driving. After completion you will be able to obtain a discount from many insurance companies, subject to your personal circumstances.

This course has proved popular because the saving on insurance is often far greater than the cost of the course. If you are already a learner with us, talk to your instructor about adding Pass Plus to the end of your course, or if you have recently passed and would like to organise Pass Plus instruction, contact us now!

Intensive



Raring to get on the road? Need a licence by a certain deadline? Able to commit to multiple hours of instruction a day, multiple days a week? Here at LA Driving School, we will match your commitment all the way to ensure you get exactly what you want out of your driving instruction. If you have a definite date in mind for obtaining your licence, contact us to discuss instructor availability.

Remember, just how quickly you can pass your test depends on you; not only mastering control of the vehicle quickly but getting both theory and practical tests booked and completed, as waiting times can trip up many learners wanting to just pass a couple of weeks.

Refresher



Been a while since you’ve passed your test? Feel your road safety and highway code knowledge may be lacking? Want to be a better, safer, more environmentally friendly driver? For all these reasons and more many people like yourself have been electing to do ‘Refresher’ courses, anything from a single two hour lesson to a weekly course until you have achieved what you set out to do. Our highly qualified instructors are well versed in the pitfalls of modern driving and new eco-safe driving techniques. We all like to think we are perfectly good drivers, but who can honestly say they couldn’t improve?

If you are interested in organising a ‘Refresher’ course, or just want more info, contact us now!
