We are very happy that we will be able to get out on the roads and begin to start to drive again soon. We look forward to teaching people how to be confident and safe while driving a car, so we do actively encourage you to get in touch with us and confirm your position. There has never been a better time to re-commit to learning how to drive, as it is a useful skill that will give you many opportunities in the future. It won’t be long now until we can all get back out on the roads to start learning, so it’s important to be prepared and to reserve your place with us. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

When it comes to driving a car, you are in control of how fast you go. This means that if you break a speed limit, or you drive too fast, well then that is down to you. However, it is thought that by 2022 this could all change, thanks to a recent EU ruling.
