Good driving schools will show a genuine pride in their training standard and how they present themselves to you the customer.
Tuition you receive should be structured to help you learn quickly and safely enabling you to have confidence in your own driving ability.
Look for evidence of a proper course plan with structure and method to the tuition. Tuition is more effective when organized.
The price of tuition should never be taken as the most important factor.
Choose quality of tuition over price every time. Don't expect a good instructor for the price a cheap instructor charges. Cheap prices often means more lessons.

This depends very much on your general skills, age and the time you can invest in your driving lessons. According to official statistics, the average person takes about 45 lessons with an instructor plus 22 private hours to pass the test. Generally, learners who have been cycling, riding a moped or have similar experience will learn to drive more easily. However, our friendly and professional instructors are trained to teach also those who are less skilled! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hweCy5vJ1yk
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 Drive2Freedom School of Motoring is supposed to b
Intensive driving courses are regarded as the fastest way to learn. Courses are popular because tuition can be taken over days enabling everything learnt to remain fresh in the mind, and because the driving test is arranged with the course you could learn and pass the test and be driving on your own in just a week instead of taking many months of weekly lessons
The majority of our lessons are based on a 2 hour period. It has been proven that a person will learn quicker and require fewer lessons than learning at the rate of 1 hour a week. This will work out financially cheaper taking 2 hour lessons than 1 hour. The learning cycle based on 2 hour and progressing at a steady rate should take between 4-6 months. 1 hour a week and the average learner will take nearly 12 months to reach test standard.
On your first driving lesson (whether you have driven before or not) you need to bring both parts of your provisional driving license, your progress log (this will be posted to you prior to your first lesson) and payment for the lesson (unless already pre-paid). Please also bring along any glasses/contact lenses if you need to wear them, and sensible footwear!!.

Foreign licence holders from countries 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 Drive2Freedom instructor - even if you are an experienced driver, the UK driving test is very demanding and often underestimated.

Guaranteed pass courses that some driving schools offer sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Well you're right.
The Guaranteed Pass is a ploy used by some driving schools to entice you to learn with them. Their guarantee offer at best is for a few hours of tuition only. Most of these driving schools don't expect you to take up this offer; if you do you will have to return to them some months later.
This depends very much on individual preferences, but most learners naturally become tired and less attentive after 2 hours of driving tuition. Therefore it is recommended not to exceed 2 hours of lessons at a time or to have a break in-between. In order to maintain the efficiency of your learning, it is important to continue with driving lessons on a very regular basis.
