What if I disagree with the result of my test?
If you feel that your test was not conducted properly you can complain to the DSA. It is highly unlikely that your test result will be changed, but it may be worth making your feelings known!
Do I have to have an Instructor?
At present the answer is no. However, Driving Instructors are highly qualified and it is unlikely that you will pass without professional help from an Instructor.
Do all Instructors teach the same things?
All Instructors know that there is a basic syllabus that needs to be covered. However, Instructors do have considerable freedom to teach people in the way that they find works the best. Be assured however, that instructors are regularly check-tested by the DSA to ensure that their instruction is up to scratch.
What do I need to do before I can drive?
Before you can start driving with StreetWise you need to be at least 17 years old and have a valid provisional licence.
How and where do I get one of those?
All you simply have to do is complete a D1 form and send it to the DVLA along with your passport or birth certificate and a passport-sized photo. You can get a D1 form from your local post office.
How many driving lessons will I need?
The Driving Standards Agency research shows that the current average driving lessons that you have to take is 45 hours of driving tuition, with an additional 22 hours of private driving.
However, after your first lesson your driving instructor will give you a rough idea of how many hours you are likely to need; based on your skills, abilities and knowledge shown on your lesson.
How much will my lessons cost?
Please see the prices page for information about prices and any discounts available. Alternatively, don’t hesitate contacting me via the contact page!
What if I feel that I’m not making good progress?
The best thing to do is talk to your instructor about this. Out instructors are easy approachable and will answer and questions you may have. However, with StreetWise it is highly unlikely you won’t be making any progress.
