The theory test pass is valid for two years. You may wish to sit your theory test before having any lessons but it is not necessary. Most people choose to study for the theory test whilst having driving lessons because the lessons help them understand the theory side of driving and their Ready2Pass driving instructor is available to help with any difficulties.
Yes, help is available to prepare for the theory test, however most people find that only minimal assistance is required.
Research shows that learners who have a combination of professional instruction and private practice do better at the driving test. On average, those who pass have had 47 hours of professional instruction and 20 hours of private practice.
The car you use for your lessons is the car you will use for your test. This will usually be your Ready2Pass driving instructor's car
The cost in April 2012 is £31.00 for the theory test and £62.00 for the practical test.
Ready2Pass Driving School offers semi – intensive courses but not intensive "Pass In One Week" courses. The reason for this that an intensive course requires a full week or fortnight of all day lessons, and the reality is that most people's concentration drops significantly as the day goes on and less is achieved later in the day. For that reason, if someone wishes to learn in a short period of time I recommend a semi-intensive course which would include 2-3 hours a day several days each week. These courses usually need to be booked at least a month in advance and must be paid for at the time of booking. For more details feel free to phone me on 07766762715.
