A – You can start on the day of your 17th birthday. If you receive higher level disability allowance you can start learning at the age of 16.

A – When you begin your driving lessons they will generally begin in a quiet area of Bedford such as putnoe or brickhill depending on where you live. This is where you can develop your driving skills in a relaxed environment without the pressure of lots of other road users. This is where you will learn about the car controls and practice basic junctions.
As your driving skills improve you will be taught a variety of different subjects such as crossroads, roundabouts and dual carriageways on the A421. By the end of driver training you will be familiar with most areas of Bedford.
A – Your driving instructor in Bedford will cover all of the practical driving test routes in Bedford with you. However it is important to be able to drive anywhere and everywhere safely. Your driving instructor is from the local area and has expert knowledge of the driving test routes and will cover these areas with you as you progress through your learning.
A – Yes, you will drive the same car that you learn in for the test.

A – Yes. Unlike some driving schools we will not change your driving instructor.
A – Yes you can. It’s entirely up to you as to how many sessions you have in a week.
