What to expect from your first driving lesson



I couldn´t have wished for a more patient, calm, genuinely friendly and down to earth guy to teach me to drive. From day one, I always felt safe, comfortable and in control of the car, allowing me to become a competent and confident driver as well as gain the experience needed to pass my test at a pace perfectly suited to my ability.

Your first lesson will be 2 hours long and will starts with you being collected from your house/school/university/place of work/bus stop etc.

I will then drive you to a nice quiet area away from traffic and major roads.

During this time we will have a chat about driving in general, what you think it entails, any experience you may have, what you are expecting etc.

Once we arrive at our chosen place we will swap seats. I will need to check your driving license and copy some details from it for my records.

We will then talk about my paperwork and your progress records sheet. Now its time to start your first lesson.

For the first 45 minutes or so we will be talking about and trying out the different controls in the car to give you an understanding of not only how to they work, but also what they do and why. All of our lessons are a conversation I will ask you how and why things happen, You DO NOT need to know all the answers, thats what Im here for.

Following this we will plan our first drive. Moving off and stopping.

You will then (with my assistance if required) drive the car along the road and then stop a little further ahead. We will repeat this pattern until you are comfortable with the process, including steering around corners. Next comes Junctions, roundabouts, manoeuvres, country roads, town driving, dual carriageways, most first lessons end with a conversation about junctions.

We will then swap seats and I will drive you home.

Everybody learns at a different pace, we will move onto the next step when I feel you are ready, should you be a quick learner then we will move quickly through the syllabus. If you are nervous and it takes you a little longer that is also fine.

The experience of learning to drive is different for everyone and my lessons will be

tailored to your own needs and requirements.

My aim is to teach you to drive in a safe and controlled manner, which will enable you to pass your driving test and be a safe driver for life.


Jon was an excellent tutor, and really helped me to not only drive but also with the skills necessary to pass the test. Which I did first time! Thanks again

Jon was a brilliant teacher and I would definitely recommend him to anyone learning to drive. He was patient, calm and friendly, and gave in-depth preparation for both the theory and the practical tes ...
