Learning to Drive in Bromley
Learning to drive in Bromley can be very exciting. However, before you begin this challenge you must be in possession of a provisional driving licence. You can apply for this either online at the DVLA website or by completing the D1 form available from the post office. In order to obtain a UK driving licence, the learner driver must pass a theory test followed by a practical driving test. The theory test will consist of a multiple choice test and a hazard perception test.
Learning to Drive with Family & Friends
Once you received your provisional driving licence you may start the process of learning to drive. Most learner drivers in Bromley will choose to take driving lessons from a professional driving instructor or a driving school. However, this is not compulsory. You may choose to learn to drive with your parents, a family member or even a friend. One thing must be remembered, if you do decide to take driving lessons from anybody who is not a registered a driving instructor, it is against the law for them to take any money in return for these lessons.
Choosing a Driving Instructor
If like most learner drivers in Bromley, you go for professional driving lessons, it is important that you choose the right instructor for you. Many driving instructors in the Bromley area will have a manual car. It is harder to learn to drive in a manual car and will take longer. However, as in your driving test in a manual car means that you will be able to drive both manuals as well as automatic cars. In other words, you will two driving licences for the price of one.
There is only a handful of driving instructors in Bromley with automatic cars. Learning to drive in an automatic car is easier than a manual car and quicker. Unfortunately, the driving structures that do have automatic cars in the Bromley area tend to charge slightly higher prices.
Weekly Driving Lessons or Intensive Courses
Once you have chosen a driving instructor, you will need to decide on how many lessons you wish to take per week. Most learner drivers in Bromley tend to take a two-hour lesson every week. Many driving schools in the Bromley area tend to encourage their students to pay upfront for a set number of lessons for example 10 or 20 hours. You may receive a slightly better price but you will be stuck with the same instructor or driving school. It is best to start off by taking a few driving lessons and paying for them as you go along. If you feel relaxed and confident with the instructor, you can consider paying in advance.
