Yes, many pupils find it beneficial to have longer lessons and, depending upon available time slots, 1.5 and 2 hour lessons can be arranged.
Of course you can. The less time between lessons will help you learn quicker as you will need to spend less time acclimatising yourself to the car each time. Please call to discuss availability.
Yes. In order to conduct driving lessons on a professional basis, all instructors must be registered with the DIA.
Some schools use 'PDI's (practising driving instructors). These are registered instructors but who have not yet passed the final part of their instructors test. These will display a pink triangular sticker in the car window.
I am a fully qualified instructor and as such, display a green, hexagonal sticker in the car.

Yes, we have both male and female driving instructors, I must add that our females instructors are in great demand and often have waiting lists of over 3 - 4 weeks for new clients, after saying this, all our male driving instructors are just as highly qualified.
For sure, the only time we would even consider changing instructors would be at the clients own request, all are instructors are hand selected, all are friendly and patient and have the necessary attributes of great instructors, hence their high grades. (Did you know that all qualified driving instructors have a grade of between 1 and 6, grade 6 being the highest grade which is very difficult to achieve and takes years of patience, personal development and dedication, these grades are regularly reviewed by the DSA, driving instructors are re-graded after every check test).
We use the brand new Vauxhall Corsa or Citroen C3, all are new, did you know that the Vauxhall Corsa has been voted the best learner driver car by the DIA for the past 5-6 years.
Of course, all our instructor cars are fully "he man" dual controlled, for the safety of our clients and instructors we wouldn't have it any other way.
