Your Very First Heath Driving Lesson
Your first lesson will include an introduction chat with your instructor to get to know you and your driving history. No need to worry if you’ve never taken driving lessons before as the majority of our customers do not have any prior driving experience. During the chat, they will check your provisional driving licence and do an eye exam. Then, they will go over the basics of the car that you will be learning in.
No one knows Heath more than a local driving instructor. Your driving lesson will be held in quiet surroundings away from any traffic so that you can slowly improve your confidence with driving. You will start with the basic pedals, steering, clutch control and moving off and stopping. You’ll face new challenges as you improve your driving skills.
Your instructor will plan each lesson carefully so that you have the opportunity to drive through many junctions, roundabouts, pedestrian crossings in an easy-to-remember setting.
Bad habits are difficult to break, so it’s important that you learn how to drive safely as soon as you start learning to drive. Our driving instructors are trained to help you be safe on the roads and pass your driving test. You will benefit from their extensive knowledge and experience in driving and become a safe, confident driver.
Your driving instructor will provide a written log of your driving progress. Your progress report will detail all topics you need to know to be a safe and confident driver. These include techniques like parallel parking and turning in the street (3-point turns), reversing around corners, and emergency stops. This will tell you where you are at the moment and what you need to do to improve.

The Driving Test Centre You Should Choose
It is entirely up to you which test centre you choose. However, the choice of the test centre can directly impact how you perform on the day, and whether you pass. We recommend that you choose a test centre closest to where you have had your driving lessons. This will allow you to be more familiar with the roads and the surrounding areas when you take your driving exam.

Learning To Drive FAQs
Which is better: manual or automatic lessons?
Your choice of a manual or an automatic car will depend on your preference. However, a manual driving licence allows you to drive both manual cars and automatic cars. An automatic driving licence allows you to only drive automatic cars. As you don't need to learn about clutch control and gears, the amount of lessons required to pass an automatic test is less. However, you should remember that automatic cars are more expensive to buy and the driving insurance is more expensive as well.
What are some things the driving examiner might ask me to do before I take my driving exam?
They will first inspect the car to make sure it is properly equipped for safe driving on the roads. Things such as sounding the horn, turning on your parking lights, headlights and hazard lights. Pressing the brake to check that the lights are working. Before they begin the test, they will also check that your seatbelts are in good working order.
How long will I drive during my driving test?
Before you can drive independently, your practical driving test will require an eye exam and safety questions. The driving test should take approximately 40 - 50 minutes.
If I answer any of the questions incorrectly, will I be fail my driving test?|
While you won't fail your practical driving exam if you get one or two questions wrong you will be penalised with 1 minor driving offence. A test failure will be issued if you score 16 or more minor driving faults, one serious or one dangerous fault.
How many lessons do you need for automatic?
In most cases, that would be approximately 22 or 23 driving lessons (taken in 2 hour intervals). We hold the same view, which applies to automatic driving lessons, that it will take more or less the same time to pass your driving test.
Is it quicker to learn in automatic?
An automatic is usually easier to learn in – all you need to do is put your car in 'D' for 'drive' and off you go. Manual cars will usually have up to 5 gears and you'll need to make sure you're in the right gear for the speed and road conditions you are driving in.
Is a driving instructor a sole trader?
Most driving instructors are self-employed and as such are normally sole traders. They take all the risks and as such are able to keep all the business profits.
How hard is it to pass an automatic driving test?
The gulf between automatic pass rates and the overall average is stark. In fact, pass rates for candidates taking their test in an automatic car has never exceeded 40%. Considering automatic cars' reputation of being easier to drive, these stats may come as a shock.
Is there a demand for driving instructors?
There is now, unfortunately, a national shortage of driving instructors not just due to the unprecedented demand but also because possibly as many as 15 percent of the nation's instructors have left the industry as a result of the pandemic.
How many miles a year does a driving instructor do?
The average annual mileage is around 30000 (to compare this to average mileage on small cars used for pleasure at around 10000 this is very high). So on average as instructors we may have to change our cars every 3 years or so… the costs on buying add up all the time.
Do driving instructors pay for fuel?
Expenses Will Cut into Your Earnings as an Instructor There is no way around it. A driving instructor is a business and a business naturally has expenses. One of the biggest expenses for a driving instructor week to week (excluding franchise fees) is usually fuel costs.
