The cost of driving lessons in Oxford

The most common question we are asked at the outset by new pupils is ‘how long will it take me to pass the test’ or ‘how many lessons will I need?’.

Your instructor will, during your first lesson, make an assessment of your driving and be able to give you a better idea of where he or she thinks you are at and how many lessons you may roughly need to achieve what you want, but the truth is that everyone is different and everyone needs as much time or as many lessons as is necessary!

Many factors will come into play including of course how much practice you are able to do outside of lessons with your instructor in your own car bracket. What we promise however is that your lessons will be specifically designed around you and your needs to get you to where you want to be when you want to get there and we will be there for you every step of the way!.

What is an ADI?

ADI stands for Approved Driving Instructor. This means that the instructor has completed the full instructional course set by the DVSA. An ADI will display a blue badge in their car.

What is PDI?

A PDI (potential driving instructor) must complete three tests that are set by the DVSA before they become an ADI (approved driving instructor).

If you are being taught by a potential driving instructor, this means that they have completed two of these three tests and are actively working their way towards taking their final test.

A PDI will have a pink badge in their car. After 6 months of teaching learners, the potential driving instructor must take and pass their final exam. If they don’t, their PDI licence will expire and they won’t be allowed to teach any longer. If a potential driving instructor fails their final test three times, their PDI licence will be taken away.
