Our Learners’ Questions Answered

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask… by messenger, text, email or by calling. Diane’s here to help you!

How many lessons will I need to pass?

This all depends on your schedule, learning style and confidence. Some of our learners pass first time after only 20 lessons, however on average it will take you around 30-40 lessons to get your pass certificate. This all depends on how frequent your lessons are and how confident you are to take control. 

I've not yet got my provisional, can I start learning without it?

You will need a UK Provisional Driving Licence to start driving lessons with Diane. If you’re unsure of how to go about this, please contact us.

What happens if I make a mistake?

Everyone makes mistakes when learning to drive and even when they have passed their test! This is all part of your learning and driving experience and you will reflect on mistakes made with Diane to ensure that you understand how to fix them in future. Diane will also help you with best practices and tips on how to get through any mistakes that you make.  

Can I bring a friend to the lessons?

In our experience, the best way to learn is alone with your instructor. This avoids any distractions and you will learn a lot quicker.  

Testimonials & Reviews

“Started learning with Diane in August and I have just passed first time with no minors. I’m absolutely over the moon and can’t believe I did it after about 30 lessons. Diane has been a superstar!”

“Had a few lessons with another instructor but after switching to Diane everything just clicked. She was so patient with me and I cannot thank you enough. Kept me on track even when I thought about giving up, and now I’ve got my licence… brilliant!”


Hey Diane. Just wanted to say thank you so much for today. I loved being back in the car and you made me feel so at ease, even when I went wrong. I’ve got my excitement back 🙂 Thank you again, Sarah.”
