Nine out of ten learners who passed their practical test on their first attempt were taught by a approved driving instructor. If you are paying someone to teach you to drive , they must be approved driving instructors ( ADI) or trainees (PDI ). You could try searching online or try a local business directory. The GOV.UK site has a link to an online tool for finding your nearest driving instructors. Without proper instruction, it could take you several attempts to pass your driving test – which will cost you more money.
