Your Seven Part Guarantee

1. You will get a fully qualified instructor, yes some driving schools use trainee’s who only have a six month licence so they may leave during your course!

2. You will get all the help you need with your Theory and Hazard Perception tests, Oh! and of course your driving. Others leave you to do the Theory etc. on your own.

3. You will have a progress record to show you how well you are doing You can also show your mates how you are getting on too!

4. All lessons are on a one to one basis unless you want to learn with a friend and share costs  If you like the idea of learning with a friend we see nothing wrong with that, it saves you money, reduces learning time and helps build confidence. We will never pair you up with a stranger, the request for two to one training has to come from you  see T’s & C’s.

5. Getting it wrong is all part of the learning process, we don’t shout or bite!!

6. We set you achievable goals. (with a bit of hard work)

7. No Gimmicks:- You want to learn – We want to teach. Come give us a try

Learner drivers warned about extra charges

DSA is advising customers to avoid copycat websites and save money by coming to the agency directly. Copycat websites offer to book theory and practical driving tests, and can appear to be the official agency, but charge a premium for their services. Some websites also charge for ‘pass protection’ with the promise of a free re-test that very few customers would ever qualify to use. Some companies charge up to £30 for just booking a test, on top of the driving test fee itself. Talk to your Three Shires Driving Instructor who will not charge you a fee for booking your test.
