If would like to read about us in more detail, then here is the information on why YOU need to choose 1st 4 Driving as your driving school for driving lessons.

You need a driving school in your area that you can trust, and one that is backed by strong foundations and correct and proper teaching, which is not often found in most other driving schools. You need to know that the driving school you choose will get you through your driving test at a pace to suit you and not waste your valuable money and time. Driving lesson price can not necessarily guarantee all this.

While it’s true that the most expensive is not necessarily the best, it’s probably true that the cheapest won’t be. Buying driving lessons in Portsmouth is a life skill and something that shouldn’t be chosen by picking the cheapest driving lessons around. Your driving instructor needs to be honest and needs get you to where you want to be in a time frame that suits you. Therefore, what you want is the independence of driving on your own as soon as possible and as cheaply as possible. That’s where we come in.

  • 1st 4 Driving was established in 2000 and incorporated in 2005, so you know we’re here to stay for you.
  • We get you on the road to independence quicker with our proven systems.
  • While not the cheapest initially, we will save you £££s in the long run by reducing the overall amount of lessons you take.
  • Our high first-time pass rate ensures you don’t waste money on extra driving tests and driving lessons in Hastings.
  • Nobody really wants driving lessons or driving tests, you want to be driving your own car independently. That’s what we can do for YOU!

What Will Happen on My Driving Lesson?

Your first driving lesson in Truro will assess your level of driving experience. Before you are taken out on to busy roads, your driving instructor will take you to a quiet area where you can practice pulling away and changing gears. Your instructor will coach you on your knowledge and gradually you will be able to take to the wheel under full guidance to achieve freedom on the roads. This is very safe as all our driving instructors have the latest dual controls fitted just in case they’re needed. Before long, you will be driving to and from your home or pick up point. Your instructor will fill out your Pupil Progress Report Card at the end of every lesson, so you can both track your progress as you progress through your driving lessons.

As experience grows, your driving experience will grow and as it grows the task demands will get higher. More demanding routes will have manoeuvres and more complex situations can be tested. Guided by your instructor, your driving lessons in Truro will be personalised to ensure that you are not only ready for the driving test, but ready to be a safe driver for life. Around Truro, there are many different roundabouts to gain experience with, and towns in the surrounding area are all within easy travelling distance from the driving test centres in Bodmin and Camborne.

Your Theory Test

Before you can book your Practical Driving Test, you must first have passed your Theory Test. This involves sections of multiple-choice questions relating to driving, as well as a section on Hazard Perception. Your Theory Test can be taken in the Theory Test Centre in Truro, and can be booked in through our office. It might all sound very scary, but we’re here to help with that, too.

All current 1st 4 Driving pupils are entitled to FULL, FREE Theory Training. You will be given access to an online resource called Theory Test Pro. Here you will be able to practice those pesky multiple choice questions and become acquainted with the Hazard Perception test. Remember, we want you to pass your tests as soon as possible. Once your Theory Test is out the way, you’ll be another step closer to being independent on the road. Throughout your journey with us, you will also have access to the words of wisdom of Driving School Dave, like this great article on How to Pass The Driving Test First Time.
