Here at 1st 4 Driving, we believe that each lesson should be tailored to suit your needs as a pupil.

Your personalised lesson plans will be based around getting you up to test-standard at your speed.

With us, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your lessons will be fun and enjoyable. After all, they’re your driving lessons!

As well as this, you’ll be sent your very own pupil pack before your first lesson. In this pack will be loads of great information to help see you through your journey to driving independence. You’ll also get a progress record card, allowing you and your instructor to track your progress from the first lesson right up to the last. You’ll be passing your driving test in Helston in no time!

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!

FULL, FREE theory training!


When you book lessons with us in Helston, you’ll get a login to our theory training app, Theory Test Suite. You may have already seen that some other schools offer this, but they don’t give you the full service. Instead, they give you a free version and you need to pay to upgrade.

1st 4 Driving pupils get full, unfiltered access to Theory Test Suite, meaning you can practice your theory test at home in front of the sofa, or out and about on your mobile using the app.

Theory Test Suite allows you as many mock tests as you like, as well as giving you valuable practice with the tricky Hazard Perception test. You are TWICE as likely to pass your theory test using this app – it’s a no-brainer! Once you’ve had your first lesson, ask your driving instructor about the app and you’ll get your own unique login details!

We’re the best driving school in Helston!
