From an estimate of cost point of view, we like to see the candidate behind the wheel for an hour or so to get an idea of an individual’s ability. It’s also a good chance for you to have a look at our operation and ask any questions about rules and regulations.
We can’t stress enough the value of having driving ability assessed before starting a program of lessons and would strongly advise against using a Driving School who only offered this option. It’s a bit like buying a very expensive suit without being measured for it or being allowed to try it on – and anyone prepared to sell a product like this should be viewed with extreme caution. Equally be wary of any school who offers more than four or a maximum of five hours training in one day. Excessive hours can lead to a lack of concentration and unnecessary mistakes. Test days should ideally have no more than four or five hours of driving. If the final moments of a test fall outside of this driving period concentration levels can be seriously impaired.
When we have an idea of how many hours will be required we can look at how thecourse could be built. Courses can be split a number of ways, either a block booking with the test towards the end of the week, Monday to Friday, for example, or alternatively training over a number of weekends. Sixteen hours, for example, can be split over four Saturdays with a test the following week, or indeed eight lessons of two hours on Saturdays and Sundays, whichever is best for individual circumstances. Flexible courses and weekend training only have to be paid for lesson by lesson, so there’s no need to make the total payment in advance.
Before undertaking any PCV Driver Training, you must obtain provisional driving licence entitlement.
Prior to this entitlement being granted, candidates will need to undergo a straightforward Medical Examination. This isn’t a complicated procedure, and we complete all the paperwork and conduct the medical here at our Head Office so no waiting around or queuing involved!
Simply call to arrange a convenient time.
When the Provisional Licence arrives you can pop down and have your assessment. These are usually arranged on a Saturday, but can be anytime.
