Driving Lessons – Your First Lesson
Take your first driving lessons in Birmingham with the Birmingham driving school, Just Pass School of Motoring. But what can you expect from manual or automatic car lessons? Well, regardless of whether it is for automatic driving lessons or manual driving lessons, the process will be the same for both.
Before The Lesson
If you haven’t contacted the office yet, your first step will be to do just that so that you can book in your first lesson. You can call or text the number 0121 270 5659, Whatsapp call or text the number 07435 962919, or send an email to email@example.com. Ask the office any questions you have regarding lessons, then go ahead and give your details in, and the office will find you an instructor. Whether you want an intensive driving course, or a Birmingham crash course, or even regular Birmingham driving instructors, we will have the perfect instructor for you. This instructor will give you a call within a day to confirm the exact time of the first lesson. All you will need to do is to make sure you bring your provisional licence with you for the first lesson.
A provisional driving licence is required to take Birmingham driving lessons. Without a full or provisional licence, it is illegal to drive a vehicle. With the provisional licence however it becomes legal for you to drive a car, as long as someone with a full driving licence is also present in the car (if you choose to take driving lessons with us, it will be the instructor who has the full licence).
Obtaining a provisional licence is not difficult. Simply head over to the government website by searching “apply for a provisional licence” on Google, or type the following URL: www.gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-licence, and follow the instructions provided on the page. The instructions will inform you that you must be 15 years and 9 months old in order to receive a provisional licence (although you need to be 17 years old to take lessons with the Birmingham driving school Just Pass School of Motoring), and that you will need an identity document (such as a valid passport or a share code from an EU Settlement Scheme application) as well as proof of the addresses in which you have lived for the past 3 years.
The instructor will check your provisional licence and ask you some simple questions to ensure you know the basics of driving a car. Throughout the first lesson, the instructor will be assessing the level of your driving, and after the lesson they will give you an estimate of how many driving lessons they think you need before you are ready to pass your practical driving test.
When the time comes for your first lesson, you may feel nervous and unable to focus on your driving. If you find yourself in this situation, just remember that you are here to learn, and that it is natural for you to make mistakes. The purpose of the lesson is not to judge you based on your driving, but rather it is to teach you how to drive in the first place. Focus on doing your best and staying alert during lessons, and you will find that progress comes naturally to you.
Above all else, a comfortable experience is the most important thing for a beginner, especially on your first lesson. Let your instructor know how you wish to take lessons, and any specific requests you have of them to ensure that you feel as relaxed as possible during the lesson.
And finally, best of luck!
