It is important to be aware that everyone learns to drive at a different pace and what works for one person may not work for another. So don't decide in advance on how many driving lessons you will need. Together we will tailor a driving programme to suit your specific requirements and see how many driving lessons you will require.

Learn to drive and EDT lessons

    EDT Driving Lessons is a course of 12 one-hour driving lessons. These lessons are designed to cover certain critical driving skills and improve your practical driving skills. As you complete each lesson, I will record your progress in a specially issued logbook. As a qualified driving instructor I get a real buzz seeing the joy on candidates faces when they realise that they can "rip up the L plates" and drive where they want, when they want. Learning to drive is one of the most important and liberating things you can do in your life. I am looking forward to hearing from you NOW so that I can put you on the road to driving success. .
