International Driving Lessons
International Drivers wishing to obtain a UK Driving Licence need to make a few checks before driving the in UK. Many people will be able to legally drive for a year or maybe more, but some will have to surrender their licence for a UK Licence Provisional. A Provisional Licence is a ‘trainee licence’ given to people before they are able to drive on the UK road network.
“I have been driving for over 20 years (in the USA), but still felt I needed a few lessons to understand the expectations of the UK practical test. Olie was great at tailoring my lessons to fit my needs, making me feel like his only student both on and off the road. The extra tips (websites, videos, etc) he provided were so helpful for me to learn on my own. And, the positive texts on the day of the test helped ease my nerves. In all I had a great experience with Olie. His professional attitude, encouragement (both positive and corrective) and calm nature made me feel confident. This ultimately led to me passing my test first time.“

Driving in the UK is not that different to many other countries
in the world, but the UK driving test is ranked among one of the hardest in the world. This helps to keep our driving standards high and road traffic accidents as low as possible.
Many other European countries have challenging driving tests. Finland puts its students through a two-part exam and extensive classroom lessons before giving them a provisional licence. In the Netherlands, students are made to take a series of challenging exams.
