All our lessons are structured, so you achieve a high level of competence in the shortest period of time, while still containing the entire syllabus to prepare you for the driving test. From teaching new drivers over a period of years, we at Perrys have seen many changes in what the DVSA require for the average learner to pass through the driving test. Previously, tuition at the school was always based on one hourly training, but with the demand for pupils to reach increasingly higher standards, we are now recommending 2 hour lessons, this will enable the instructor to cover the teaching subjects in more depth and when necessary take new drivers to their local centre, where they will gain invaluable experience on roads that the test will be conducted. Through our experience, we as a driving school, have found that coupled with good professional tuition, the pupil that has been to their test area on a regular basis, is more likely to pass 1st time.

The driving test has changed

From today (Monday 4 December 2017), the way the car driving test works in England, Scotland and Wales has changed.
