Pass Plus Course – Discounted Prices

The minimum cost of the Pass Plus course (3 x 2 hour sessions) charged by the AA in Nottingham is £171 (with any additional sessions needed charged at £28.50 per hour).

However, I am currently charging just £155 for bookings made directly with me (i.e. nearly 10% less than the standard AA price), with any additional hours charged @ £25 per hour (12% less than the standard AA hourly rate). A further £15 discount (nearly 10%) is offered to people who learned to drive with me (and passed their driving test in my car).

For people who have not learned to drive with me but want me to deliver their Pass Plus course, I am currently offering the course with an additional free one hour included (i.e. 7 hours for the price of 6 hours). This gives us the opportunity to meet and chat, before commencing the course, gives you a little time to get used to driving my car (if using my car) and allows me to briefly assess your driving skills (to help tailor your Pass Plus course to suit your specific needs).

Pass Plus is not a driving test but a course (minimum of 6 hours) that builds on your current skills and knowledge, aiming to help you anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, and help you become a more confident driver.

The Pass Plus course consists of the following six modules, dealing with driving in different conditions:

Driving around a town

All weather driving

Driving in the countryside

Driving at night

Driving on dual carriageways

Driving on motorways

Refresher Driving Lesson

Having had an accident in icy conditions last year, Sheryllynne decided to have a refresher session this winter to learn how to drive in the snow or on icy roads.

Thank you for giving me the confidence to go to work this morning (and to squash this evening),  as I felt that I had the skills. Thank you very much! – Sheryllynne

Driving in the Snow, Fog or on Icy Roads

At this time of year, everyone who is currently learning to drive with me gets the opportunity to drive in a variety of weather conditions (snow, fog, icy roads and the dazzling sunshine of the winter sun).  While some people look forward to this opportunity more than others, it does provide them with additional skills to be able to drive in the winter once they have passed their test. People who learn to drive and pass their test at other times of the year have told me that they wished that they had some lessons in winter weather conditions. While the Pass Plus course covers driving in these conditions, the module is primarily a theoretical session, unless the course is taken at this time of year. If you are one of these people, it might be worth considering an autumn/winter driving session or even requesting a single refresher session to cover driving on icy roads. If you feel that you would benefit from this please call me today on 0798 011 1234 or complete the contact form.

Success at Chalfont Drive

Today was my fifth successive pass at Chalfont Drive in the last couple of months. On this occasion, Susanna was the successful pupil, passing at her first attempt. Well done Susanna (especially given the weather conditions). It was a pleasure to support you and I wish you many happy years of driving.

Thank you again for teaching me how to learn and pass first time! I have already been recommending you as my friends/family didn’t think first time passing was possible! – Susanna

Driving Lesson Prices 2013

I offer the following reduced PAYG prices for my driving lessons in Nottingham (compared to the standard hourly AA rate, currently £25 for NG Postcodes), for bookings made directly with me.

1½ hour lessons – £35 (£23.33 per hour)

2 hour lessons – £45 (£22.50 per hour)

Single hour lessons are charged at the standard hourly AA rate of £25.

Discounts are available for block bookings (payable as a lump sum in advance), which help to reduce the overall cost of driving lessons.

10 x 1½ hour lessons – £330 (£22 per hour) – Any day, including weekends

10 x 1½ hour lessons – £315 (£21 per hour) – Weekdays only

10 x 2 hour lessons – £420 (£21 per hour) – Any day, including weekends

10 x 2 hour lessons – £400 (£20 per hour) – Weekdays only

Aside of securing cheaper hourly rates for your driving lessons (when booking directly with me, compared to booking via the AA), if you book a block of 10 lessons (1½ hour or 2 hour lessons), I guarantee that hourly prices will not increase for you within 12 months of your first payment, providing that you have regular lessons  (at least once a week), with the exception of any gaps due to taking a holiday (of no more than 3 weeks).

To book your first driving lesson or to discuss your requirements in more detail, please call me today on 0798 011 1234 or complete the contact form.
