What happens on your first driving lesson?
The idea getting into a car and actually learning to drive may make you feel apprehensive, or nervous. That’s understandable. It’s a new experience, but your driving instructor is on hand to help you every step of the way. You will not be thrown into any heavy traffic situations, or scenarios that might overwhelm you. The driving curriculum is a layered approach that builds up at a pace that suits you, and is concentrated on giving you the skills you need, not just to pass your driving test, but to become a safe driver for the duration of your driving career
Pick up point
Your driving instructor will call for you at your pick up point (e.g. home, work, gym, school).
The lesson will be tailored to fit in with your previous driving experience
Your driving instructor will ask you a few questions to assess your previous experience, if any. The driving instructor will then drive to a nearby “nursery patch”, a quiet area with less traffic. On the drive, the instructor will give you a brief talk-through, e.g. the use of mirrors, steering, or using the clutch for gear changes.
Remember your driving license
After introductions, there will be a little bit of in-car admin, such as checking your driving license (bring both the card and paper counterpart, as these are both still required in Northern Ireland at present).
An eyesight check will be carried out to ensure you can read a licence plate at a distance of 20.5 metres.
