Learning to Drive in High Wycombe
Being on the outskirts of London, learning to drive in High Wycombe can be fun as well as challenging. Most people can start learning to drive when they’re 17. This is provided they have a valid provisional drivers license. Firstly, it’s important to remember that learner drivers need to be supervised by a qualified driver (except if riding a motorcycle). The vehicle they drive must be registered with the DVLA, have a valid tax, mot and be road worthy. Furthermore, you need to have insurance to allow you to drive.
Learning to Drive with an Instructor
Most people in High Wycombe simply prefer to learn to drive with a driving school or an independent driving instructor. If you are paying someone to teach you to drive, they must be registered with the DVSA. It is a criminal offence to take payment unless they are a driving instructor. Instructors have to display a badge in their windscreen to prove they’re registered with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). There’s no minimum number of lessons you must have or hours you must practice driving.
Manual or Automatic Driving Lessons
One of the things that need consideration, is whether you wish to learn in an automatic car or a manual. Its easier to pass in an automatic car. However, by passing in an automatic, you are restricting yourself to automatic vehicles only. However, you can upgrade at any time but will need to resit the driving test in a manual car. If you have a full automatic licence and failed your manual test with several serious mistakes, your automatic license will be unaffected.

The High Wycombe practical test centre is extremely popular which reflected by the huge waiting time for an appointment.

DTC UK searches the DVSA website every 20 seconds and can guarantee you an emergency driving test within 2 weeks or it’s totally free. If you are lucky enough to have found your own cancellation, we are able to provide you with a dual control car hire for the test. An emergency driving instructor is also available for a few driving lessons beforehand.
