You can drive here for 1 year using your non - GB car licence, if you hold a valid licence from one of these countries.

You can apply to exchange it for a GB licence up to 5 years after you come to live here, but if you wish to take a driving test within this time you will need to exchange your non GB licence before you start your driving lessons.

"Dave's Teaching Methods were Excellent & Clearly Explained..."


"I didn't expect to be actually driving myself so quickly but with Dave's Help I was driving, turning corners, and changing gears on my very first driving lesson."

Ryan Owen

"Dave was So Patient, Understanding and Flexible..."


"I was a bit wary to begin with, as my old instructor was female. But as soon as I met Dave I knew we'd get on, he is "Fab", Really Patient, and has a great Sense of Humour, it wasn't like having driving lessons, it was like we were old friends having a chat and a laugh, I Really Enjoyed the Whole Experience."

Becki Hancock

"It's Great, Now I don't have to Rely on Other People..."


"Dave's Teaching Methods were Excellent, Everything seemed So Simple. I wasn't really looking forward to learning to drive because I get so nervous. Dave made my lessons fun and I enjoyed them so much, I couldn't wait for the next."

Rebecca Radford
