Frequently Asked Questions
Here to Help
Where do I meet my instructor?
Your instructor will usually pick you up and drop you off at your home or an agreed location which works for both parties.
Why are lessons two hours?
Two hour lessons help will speed up your progress and it is a far more productive way of getting test ready. Unbroken time behind the wheel proves to be the most effective way of learning and there’s time to get detailed feedback too!
How many lessons do I need?
You'll always have that one person who swears they passed first time after three lessons, but that's far from the average. According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), it takes most people 47 hours of lessons to learn how to drive, plus 22 hours of private practising. Usually about 30 hours with West London Driving School without private practice.
How much does it cost to learn to drive?
DSA (Driving Standards Agency) recommending 47 hours of tuition under the supervision of a professional instructor, the total cost of lessons for a learner will around be £1,128.
Do you teach automatic?
We currently only teach manual transmission. We hope to be teaching automatic transmission very soon.
Can I start driving before passing my theory test?
Yes, and in fact it is better to learn the theory whilst having practical lessons.
How do I get a refund?
All refunds for purchased items will be sent back via bank transfer. Usually the last Friday of month.
