Driving Course Structure & Documentation

Learning to be a good driver

Good driving isn't just about learning the rules of the road: your skill and your attitude as a driver are vital too, and you'll keep learning and developing these over the years.

A good driver:

  • is responsible for what they do while driving
  • concentrates on what they're doing
  • anticipates what could happen around them
  • is patient with other road users
  • is confident about how to drive safely.

Our driving courses are aimed at making sure that you learn and develop all the essential skills for becoming a good and safe driver, - as well as passing your theory and practical driving tests. Each course is tailored to your level of driving experience.

The following course structure is geared to those pupils learning to drive for the first time, - in accordance with all DVSA requirements.
