Starting to drive

Learning to drive can be exciting, challenging, fun and very rewarding. At Coastline Driving School we aim to make your learning experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Our courses are tailored to meet your needs so are structured in line with the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency’s recommended syllabus. We also try to structure the learning process in a logical way to help you to develop the skills required to drive safely on today’s roads.

You can learn at your own pace and you can record your progress so that you can see how your skills are developing.

We give full support for the theory test, we even run theory classes if necessary!

If you commit yourself to the challenge then we can help you achieve that first time pass and have you driving on the roads with confidence.

We have a choice of male or female instructors and all of our cars are fully air conditioned. Currently only operate MANUAL cars.

How long will it take for you to pass your test?

Simple answer is who knows? I don’t – I’ve never seen you drive – but we can work that out. The only statistics I can share are listed by the DVSA: Please follow this LINK for their details:  Or the short version is: Research shows that learners who have a combination of professional instruction and private practice do better at the driving test. On average, those who pass have had 47 hours of professional instruction and 20 hours of private practice. Find out how to use a driver’s record to plan your learning.

Pass Plus is a training course specifically aimed at new drivers, designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DVSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Pass Plus will build upon your existing skills and knowledge, it will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, and can help you to become more confident on the roads.

Pass Plus is made up of six practical modules which include:

  • driving in town
  • driving in all weathers
  • driving on rural roads
  • driving at night
  • driving on dual carriageways
  • driving on motorways

You can choose to complete the course in one or separate sessions which can vary in length and be conveniently arranged with your trainer.

The one day course incorporates driving into the city of London experiencing a wide range of road and traffic situations. This opportunity allows new drivers to gain valuable experience and knowledge driving in a big city environment with varied and complex road systems. You will also develop skills in driving on various motorways including the M25. Of course you will also incorporate interesting and challenging rural routes as well as extensive dual-carriageway driving.

The one day course will be followed up with a night driving session where you will develop your skills at driving in the dark.

Anyone who holds a full UK licence is eligible to take part in the scheme. You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed. You must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard.
