My son had been having lessons for some time and had a date booked for his test. With no prior warning the instructor told us he was moving away from the area and was unable to continue! Facebook recommendations suggested Anthony who thankfully was able to assist at such short notice and Charlie passed first time. He is a patient, conscientious instructor with great communication and I would have no hesitations in recommending GGO Driving School.
I've been to driving lessons with GGO Anthony,He is really a wonderful, keen driving instructor, patient, expert in test tricks, and eager to teach you how to pass the test and drive safely, Anthony is an outstanding instructor because he loves what he does.
Anthony helped me pass my test first try. He was really nice and patient. Would 100% recommend GGO.
Having driven for 18 years in America, I needed an instructor to help me wit any bad habits and pointers I should be really focusing on before my test. Instructors are hard to come by at the moment, but Anthony managed to fit me in very last minute for a two hour lesson. He pulled me up on my bad habits, helped with the dreaded parallel parking, and was basically a God send! I passed my test first time today, and I can honestly say it was due to Anthony's instruction and help. Thank you so very much!
Anthony is absolutely brilliant! Great teacher who will make you feel calm and comfortable. I passed after just few lessons with him! He told me everything I needed to know to feel confident and pass my exam. Thank you again Anthony!
In your first session, you'll most probably be introduced to a few of the fundamentals, such as setting your seat and mirrors correctly. You'll also learn how to use the handbrake, gears, and, of course, clutch control to secure and steer the car. Nerves are normal in the first driving lesson; don't worry!
While the fundamentals are similar for most people in their first practical driving lesson, what follows after that is bound to be different for everyone, as everyone learns at a different pace, and some students may have prior driving experience.
It's an exciting feeling when you receive your provisional license in the post. Unfortunately, though, it's not valid until your 17th birthday, however, you can still book driving lessons in advance. Just make sure they fall on or after your birthday so you can start driving legally! Make sure to take your license with you to your first driving lesson so your instructor can confirm your eligibility.
The government website states that you do not have to pass your theory test before taking driving lessons, but you must pass the test before taking your practical test. However, many driving instructors encourage their students to start studying for the theory test either before or while they are learning with them. This can help students familiarise themselves with road markings, signs, and the right of way, but it is not usually required. To apply for a provisional driving licence, you can do so online on the government website.
