Learning to drive can be an extremely expensive undertaking. When the likes of revision material, applying for a licence and theory and practical tests are all taken into account, as well as the driving lessons themselves, you could find yourself paying well above £1,000 simply to become a qualified driver. That doesn’t even include the outlay for your first car and the associated tax and insurance. |
As renowned providers of affordable driving lessons in Watford, here at Mike’s Way, we thought we’d list some of the ways you can lessen the financial burden of learning to drive.
Revise cheaply (or for nothing)
You don’t necessarily need to buy an expensive book and DVD package just to learn how to drive. Many learners don’t realise they can read the entire Highway Code or take a practice theory test for free on the Government website or through Theory Test Pro, accessible via our website. You can also consult our guide to the practical test ‘show me, tell me’ questions.
Even if you would rather learn from an actual book, it’s easy to find cheap second-hand copies of what you need online or from friends.
Take longer lessons
Most people prefer their driving lessons to last for an hour at a time, but sometimes, it can be frustrating to feel that you are only just getting up to speed when the lesson finishes. It might therefore be worth asking for lessons of two hours or more for better value for money.
Here at Mike’s Way, we generally recommend two to three hours of tuition a week and can offer lessons as long as four hours if this is what you would prefer. Such longer lessons with us do, of course, include short breaks.
Get discounted lessons whenever possible
Driving schools are usually happy to give you a discount when you book lessons in blocks, rather than one lesson at a time.
Whereas a single one-hour lesson with Mike’s Way, for example, will set you back £25 – or £250 for 10 lessons – if you book those 10 lessons in one block in advance with us, you will only need to pay £240. Check out our pricing page for our full range of options for lessons.
By preparing as well as possible for your driving lessons and test, such as by learning about the rules of the road and practising behind the wheel with a suitably qualified and experienced friend or family member in a car that you’re both insured to drive, you can further help to ensure you get the most out of your investment in learning to drive.
