Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many Lessons will I need?

A. This is a very difficult question to answer. The DSA reccommend 47 hours of professional lessons combined with 20 hours of private......Everyone learns the skills at different rates so it is impossible to estimate this figure.


Q. Do I need to pass the Theory Test before I can learn to drive?

A. No, as long as you have received your Provisional Licence you can start lessons straight away.


Q. How old do I have to be before I can drive?

A. You can drive on your 17th birthday with the relevant provisional licence - if you are disabled you maybe entitled to drive when your 16.


Q. When do I apply for my provisional licence?

A. You can apply for your provisional licence up to 3 months before your 17th birthday.


Q. When is the earliest I can take my theory Test?

A. On your 17th birthday.


Q. Do I have to pass both parts of the theory test at the same time?

A. Yes, the theory test is made up of 50 multiple choice questions & the Hazard Perception test. If you pass only 1 of the 2 sections then the whole test is recorded as a fail and you have to retake and pass both parts the next time.


Q. Can I book my Driving Test as soon as I´m 17?

A. The Driving Test can only be booked after you have passed the theory test.


Q. How long are your lessons?

A. Each lesson is 60 minutes; our normal lessons are 60mins, 90mins or 120mins.


Q. Where will I be picked up & dropped off?

A. Where ever is most convenient for you - home, college, work etc. providing this is agreed when booking the lesson.


Q. My friend was made to pick up his instructors next pupil during his lesson.

A. We never piggy-back pupils - all lessons are 1 to 1 - unless you want a friend or parent to accompany you - that´s fine.


Q. What do I need to bring with me on my first lesson?

A. You need to bring your provisional licence.If you need glasses for distance vision then bring those. You also need to bring payment, either cash or cheque made payable to, Barry Buskin


Q. I am really nervous. Will i be asked to drive straight away?

A. Generally you won´t be asked to drive straight away as I need to assess your ability first. This will be done in a quiet area with no, or very little traffic. All lessons are structured to match your ability and the appropriate amount of instruction will be given.


Q. My friends instructor shouts at her when she gets things wrong.

A. That will not happen with me guaranteed. I firmly believe that making your lessons fun and with plenty of positive encouragement is the way to succeed.


Q. Your lesson fees are more expensive than some other driving schools. Why is this?

A. The simple answer is that I think I´m worth it.

I put 100% into my teaching methods. I rarely have anyone fail. I believe in quality rather than quantity, therefore rather than try to cram my day with lots and lots of driving lessons and pupils perhaps not necessarily getting quality tuition due to fatigue and tiredness, they will get a experienced fresh,alert,high grade approved driving instructor that will teach to his highest standards that will enable you to enjoy fun and rewarding lessons that will set you up for life!

I´m a firm believer in that you get what you pay for.

Don´t sacrifice your safety for the sake of a couple of quid.
