    If you have never drove before, don't worry, your instructor will take you to a quiet area, show you where all of the controls are in the car and explain how they work so you fully understand them. This will take around half an hour, and then you will take the wheel. Don't worry! All of our instructors are extremely patient and follow the DSA approved syllabus so you will cover all aspects of learning to drive. Most importantly relax, and enjoy your lessons!
