Drive With Joe: Welcome onboard!


Welcome to the road, thank you for choosing to share your learning journey with me. I have provided some information and frequently asked questions but do feel free to ask any questions throughout your journey.

This document should be read together with the terms and conditions of tuition.

What can you expect?

Passing your driving test safely and efficiently relies heavily on commitment and dedication on your part. You can expect a reliable, prompt and professional service at all times. I am dedicated to your success. I commit to undertaking regular Professional Development – always finding ways to improve my skillset. This ensures I stay up to date with the industry within which I operate.

I promote client-centred learning that puts you at the heart of your learning journey. I will encourage plenty of timely discussion and problem solving throughout. If at anytime you are finding something difficult, I will work with you to find appropriate solutions. I have vast experience of working with those with learning disabilities and will work closely with you to find the most effective strategy for your specific requirements. I am happy to work closely with parents/guardians where appropriate.

I will always endeavour to accommodate your preferred lesson slot however sometimes this will need to be altered due to upcoming practical tests. Those booking tests must take priority over regular lessons. You can expect this when you are ready for your practical test.


Payment is required at least 48 hours before the lesson commences. Bank transfer is preferred.

Cancellation policy

Please be aware that I operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel your lesson within 48 hours I reserve the right to charge the full lesson fee. I am human and I do understand life can be unpredictable so I will assess the situation as it arises.

Please see my terms and conditions for further information.

Theory practice

For more information about the theory test have a look at To book the theory test use only the official website at

How many hours?

I often get asked how many lessons you’re likely to need before you are ready for your test. It is very difficult to assess this in the early days, and will depend on many factors.

It is important to understand that everyone is different and that the learning process varies from one person to another. As you work through your lessons you will see your progress and get a better understanding.

Please do not compare yourself with others.

How do I know when I’m ready to book a test?

In order to assess your progress we will conduct a devrief session at the end of your lesson. This will highlight anything that needs improvement. I encourage pupils to take a mock test to help familiarise them with the practical test scenario.

See my list of frequently asked questions here.

Booking the test

Once you have reached the required standard for the driving test, you can then book your practical test. You should be able to drive independently, safely and responsibly at all times with very little input from me.

You can book the practical driving test online at Please only use the official for this.

More information can be found here.

It is important that you check with me before a test is booked to ensure my car is available. Failure to do so could mean you will not have a car for your test. You can cancel or move your test up to three working days before the date of your test should you need to.
