If you have any other queries not covered below then please do not hesitate to contact Wendys.

How many lessons should my learner need to pass?

You probably want your learner to pass their test in as few lessons as possible, we did when our son was learning, you'll probably clock up the number of lessons and cost.

Every pupil learns at different rates depending on their learning ability and confidence.

Learning to drive can be expensive but nothing is more important than doing it properly, safely and understanding what is being learnt.

At Wendy's your learner won't be rushed through a set of criteria to merely pass the test, but won't have more lessons that are absolutely necessary. Your learner will be taught to understand what they are learning, the importance of road safety, reading the road well ahead, anticipating the actions of other road users which should hopefully help your learner to remember once they have passed to help keep them safe out there on the roads.

Your learner will only be ready for their test when the instructor or whoever is teaching them is only giving them directions on where to drive and not having to give them help or advice. If they are still asking for assistance then they obviously aren't ready, they won't have anyone to ask once they have passed their test such as "is it okay to go?" at that busy junction.

How can I help my learner to practise?

You can help speed the process up if you are able to help them practice what they have been taught then this should hopefully not only boost their confidence but should also speed up the learning process.

It is important to only help practise what they have already been taught, if you move onto something that has not yet been covered then there is a danger that this may not be the same way the DVSA will be marking on the test. This will also make it difficult for your learner to stop doing this the incorrect way and therefore have a habit that is hard to break.

Can anyone teach or help someone to drive?

Only qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) can charge learners to drive legally.  To be an accompanying driver ie a parent, guardian or friend please refer to Direct Gov - Driving before you've got your full licence

What else do I need to know?

The vehicle must display ‘L’ plates in a conspicuous position on the front and rear of the vehicle being driven. We also recommend a rear view mirror is fitted for your use so you can also keep up to date with what is happening behind the car as well as your learner. Also remember you must have appropriate insurance for the learner driver
