Before you commence with driving lessons you will need the following:
 
YOU CAN HAVE A DRIVING EXPERIENCE INVOLVING DRIVING OUR DUAL CONTROLLED CAR AT THE BAYFORD MEADOWS KART CIRCUIT ON YOUR 14TH, 15TH OR 16TH BIRTHDAY -  click here for details

1.You can Commence driving lessons on your 17th birthday.

Many young people are bought lessons as a present. Lessons can be booked ahead of the “big day” so that they can commence lessons promptly.

At Turn-2-Us we can provide gift vouchers to reflect any quantity of lessons that you wish to purchase. They are valid for 6 months after purchase.

Most people start with a 2 hour lesson and then take the advice of the instructor as to which format suits them best, i.e. 2 hours, 90 minutes or a 1 hour lesson.

You choose!

Some customers are bought a couple of driving lessons by family or friends as they are reluctant to take the first step of contacting a driving school themselves. They are always too busy and keep putting off that phone call, yet desperately want to learn to drive. They never will make that call it needs you to get them started.

Want to arrange a surprise? Turn-2-Us!

2. The other requirement is that you must be in possession of a signed, valid provisional driving licence.

For young people you can apply as you approach your 17th birthday, you do not have to be 17 to apply. The licence will arrive before it becomes valid, but then you have it for the big day.

You can apply for a provisional licence up to 8 weeks ahead of your 16th birthday, as it becomes valid at 16 for moped training. It becomes valid for driving a car on your 17th birthday.

So don't wait until the big day !

3. You need to have a lesson booked -
                             Don’t delay! Book today with Turn-2-Us.


For people that gained a licence previously and want to start driving again you simply need your signed, valid full driving licence and passport as photo ID if you have the old style licence.

Do you have a full driving licence issued outside the UK? Are you coming to the end of the period you can drive on that Licence?

You will need a UK provisional Licence to take your theory and practical driving tests. Turn-2-Us can help with all aspects of this.

You can call the DVLA on 0870 240 0009 for further information.

Main Post offices can supply an information leaflet D100.

Alternatively visit www.direct.gov.uk/driving licence for all licence enquiries.

One last point for those taking to the roads for the first time. You do not need to take & pass the Theory Test to commence lessons. You will need to pass it to take a practical driving test.

Some pupils find it a help to study the Theory and take the test ahead of starting to drive.
