Learning to Drive in Loughton

Learning to drive in Loughton can be fun but also challenging at the same time. However, firstly you need to be at least 17 years old and have a valid provisional license. Also, you must be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20 meters, with or without glasses.

The Theory Test 

In order to obtain a full UK drivers licence, the learner must pass the theory test followed by a practical test at Loughton. There are two theory test centres within easy reach of Loughton. These are located at 253 High Street, Ilford and 14 Thomas Road, London, E14 7AF. 

The theory test consists of two parts, the multiple choice and hazard perception. Many learner drivers fail their theory test as they believe, being multiple choice, it would be easy. This is not the case, you must be prepared to revise for hours before attempting the theory test.

Learning to Drive with Family/ Friends

You can practice driving with anyone provided they are at least 21 years old and have held a license for at least 3 years. You can be fined up to £1000 and get 6 points for learning to drive without the correct supervision. You will need to arrange your own car insurance if learning to drive in your own car. If you are learning to drive in someone else’s car, you need to make sure that they have insurance which covers you as a learner driver.

Learning to Drive with a Driving School in Loughton

If like most learner drivers in Loughton, you decide to learn from a driving school, it is important that you choose the right instructor for you. Many driving instructors in the Loughton area will have a manual car. It may take slightly longer to learn in a manual but you will end up getting two driving licenses for the price of one. There is only a few of driving instructors in Loughton with automatic cars. Learning to drive in an automatic car is easier than a manual car and quicker.

Weekly Driving Lessons or Intensive Courses

Once you have chosen a driving instructor, you will need to decide whether you want weekly lessons or an intensive course in Loughton. Most learner drivers in Bromley tend to take a two-hour lesson every week. Trying to learning everything in a week or two can be very stressful. It is best to start off by taking a few driving lessons and paying for them as you go along.
