How often you have your lessons is entirely up to you. At Quality Driving lessons recommends at least 1 session of 2 hours per week.

However, our friendly and professional instructors are trained to teach also those who are less skilled!

10. I am very anxious, will I need more driving lessons than other learners?

From experience, there is generally no significant difference between the amount of lessons needed for anxious learners and those who are relatively confident. It is natural for new learners to think that they are more anxious than others, but they will
overcome this problem throughout the course. Remember, learning to drive with Quality Diving Lessons is supposed to be fun as well.

14. I have recently moved to the UK, and I am on International driving licence, can I transfer the driving licence from my home country?

Foreign licence holders from countries  (not from EU ) specified on the DVLA website are generally allowed to drive in the UK for 12 months but have to pass a test before this time elapses in order to continue to drive as a “full licence holder”. To apply for the test foreign licence holders need a provisional licence just as UK applicants, but don’t have to display “L”-plates and don’t have to drive under supervision within the 12 months period. However, we highly recommend to take driving lessons with a professional driving Instructor at Quality Driving Lessons  – even if you are an experienced driver, the UK driving test is very demanding and often underestimated.
