Driving Lessons and Prices

Driving school BedfordYou should bring both parts of your provisional license to your first driving lesson.

At the start of the first driving lesson, you will be asked to read a number plate at the legally required distance of 20 metres for a new style plate or 20.5 metres for an old style (you will also be asked to do this at the beginning of your practical test). If you think you may need glasses for driving then you will need to bring them along. It would be a good idea to have an eye test if you are unsure.
