Customer Testimonials

I moved to the UK from the States a couple years ago and needed to get my UK driving license, so I began taking lessons from Chris (Berty's speedy pass) earlier this year, and cannot recommend him highly enough. From the very beginning Chris is very patient, calm and friendly, and puts you immediately at ease. He is incredibly thorough, and makes sure you continue to review the things that you are not 100% at. Every lesson was incredibly enjoyable, and I would recommend Chris' service to absolutely everyone.

From 14 April 2020, the car theory test will include 3 multiple-choice questions based on a short video you'll watch. How the theory test is changing to use video clips instead of written case studies Currently, you have to read a case study and then answer 5 questions about it. This tests your knowledge and understanding of road rules. This will change if you take your test from 14 April 2020. You'll watch one video clip instead of reading a case study, and answer 3 questions about it. Before you can drive on a public road or take your theory test, you will need a valid Provisional Driving Licence.


We strongly recommend that you help improve your driving skills and confidence by taking a Pass plus Course. Unfortuantely, statistics show that new drivers of any age are more likely to have a collission within the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. While this is really just down to a lack of experience insurance premiums merely reflect the increased risk. Your initial driver training should provide you with a varied range of road and traffic conditions, however, this training often takes place on familiar roads around Leicester or other areas we cover, as there are time constraints and lesson objectives to consider.


On your first lesson, you will need to print and produce your licence information. Use this link to get the appropriate information required by your instructor for your first lesson.
