Information for you

The Driving Standards Agency recommends around 50 to 65 hours of tuition, some schools will give you this amount regardless of whether or not you need them! BUT we DON’T. If you are quick to learn, we will get you to test standard and beyond as quickly and professionally as we can, we have teaching programs to suit everyone. Fundamentally, learning to drive with driving instructors in Brecon, well anywhere really should be a pleasurable experience and not something you should dread, choosing the right driving school and driving instructor is very important and we feel that we can offer the complete learning experience and thus ensuring that you “Learn with a Smile”.

Are all driving schools the same?
Many driving schools cut corners in order to offer cheap driving lessons which actually end up costing their pupils more, as they need more lessons to reach test standard. Our aim is to offer excellent value for money while getting each learner through their driving test in the shortest possible time. A priority is ensuring that our pupils have the necessary skills required to drive safely on UK roads.

Most people don’t know that there is a difference between different driving schools and what these differences are, such as, a franchised instructor or an independent instructor. There are also different types of driving instructors, some instructors are in training and are called PDI’s, a fully qualified driving instructor is called an ADI. Also, depending on your driving instructor can depend on what your driving lessons are like and how they are structured. Regardless whether you’re taking driving lessons in Brecon or in any one of the other towns or villages we cover, we can guarantee that you will be getting value for money.
