I passed my test first time with Natalie. I was nervous about going on my first lesson but she soon put me at ease. She is very friendly, patient and a calming instructor. She has an excellent pass rate and she gave me a lot of help and guidance with my theory test as well as the practical. I loved my lessons and would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking of learning to drive.

STANDARDS OF VISION
When you reapply for your driving licence, DVLA will ask you to have an eyesight test with DVSA. This will be at a driving test centre. If you’re successful, you’ll still have to pass the DVSA standard eyesight test at your next practical driving test. The practical test is to make sure you can demonstrate the skills required to be a competent, independent driver and lasts for approximately 40 minutes. If you think you may have any problems with your eyesight please visit an Optician before you plan to have lessons as any issues will delay your learning.
