What happens in my first driving lesson in Leicester?

Your driving instructor will arrive on time, if he/she is running late (which is unlikely) then they will let you know in advance. Once your instructor arrives they will ask to see your driving licence and check your eyesight. Once in the car they will ask you about your previous experience. If you have practiced in the past, be sure to mention this to your instructor so they don’t start teaching you subjects you already know. Beginners will be driven to a quieter area nearby where they can build up their confidence and intermediate/test ready pupils will often drive away from their house/college/work place etc.

Do I Need To Take My Theory Test Before I Can Start Driving?

You don’t need to take your theory test before starting your lessons, but it is a good idea to get started with your theory as soon as possible.
