driving lessons
get your full driving licence!

What you’ll learn in our driving lesson/s
(manual or automatic)


First, we’ll review your driving and answer any questions you may have.

 

The Full driving test is as much about observation as it is about driving safely and within the road rules.
 

Whilst the Full Test is a much shorter drive than the Restricted Test, it is much more comprehensive and interactive. I will teach you
 

  • what specific hazards are

  • how they could affect you

  • how you then intend to safeguard yourself from each specific hazard.

About the Full Licence Driving test

As a former Testing Officer, it was sad to see so many drivers fail the Full Test, simply because they are unfamiliar with what hazards are around them and how to deal with them.
 

If you make 2 critical errors or 1 immediate fail error at any time your test will be terminated.

 

Simulated practical Full test
Take the fear out of the Full test and learn what to do to succeed. When you’re ready, book a practice Full licence driving test with me.

Terms and Conditions

Insurance
The lesson includes the cost of insurance in the hourly fee. However, there is a $350 excess to be paid by the driver, in the event of an accident. I hold personal liability insurance for up to one million dollars. Thames Driver Training accepts no liability in the event of damage to your person, vehicle, property or third party.
 

Using Your Car
Lessons in your own manual or automatic car are fine. In fact, it's good to have lessons in the car you will be driving and probably doing the test in. Your vehicle must registered, warranted etc. Insurance while you or your child is learning is your own responsibility. Please check with your own insurer to ensure you have the correct cover.
 

Payment
If paying by online banking, please make sure payment is in our account the day before the lesson. If paying by cash, please pay on the day at the start of your lesson. Lessons will only proceed once payment is received.
 

Cancellation
Please give 48 hours notice of cancellation to avoid paying for missing the lesson
 

Running Late?
Please text me on 027 268 6381 urgently to advise if you are running late. Your lesson may be shortened as lesson times are tightly scheduled.
