  • I did my theory last year and kind of forgot that I need to pass the practical within a certain period or resit the theory.

    I've possibly foolishly booked a test for May 6th. If I fail it gives me time until late June to book another and try again.

    But I'm, unsurprisingly, finding it difficult to find lessons at short notice. I've tried all the big national franchises plus all the independents on the first few pages of google - no dice.

    I'd like automatic instruction: 1. Because we have an automatic car, 2. Because I'm in a hurry and it seems easier.

    Anyone know any driving instructors? I can be free any time and have dollar.

  • Apart from what everyone else said did you try Round the Bend driving school.
    Run by a guy called Matthew and they have a few drivers.
    I had a guy called Scott, who was fairly direct but exactly what you need. No fluffy pandering.

  • Oddly I had a text from Matthew this morning who said he could help out - I've actually already booked 10 (manual not auto) hours with AA but I'm not sure if their instructor will be able to come to the test with me, so Matthew said give him a ring and they'd sort something out if he can't.

    Would have gone with him already but he only got back to me this morning after I contacted him last week. Would still go with him but had to pay in advance for AA so might as well see what it's like before scrapping.

    Thanks for your optimism @Dogtemple
