Crash course (pardon the pun) in driving?

    Hiya,

     

    Our michael is 17 and has never had any driving lessons. I'm looking to put him through an intensive course that would get him a licence in a few weeks...(if that's possible). Does anyone know of such a thing?

     

    All apprenticeship jobs we've seen for him say he needs his own transport and ability to drive.

     

    We still haven't changed over our own licences ..plan to do that today..along with the trillion other things we have to do..lol..never a dull moment eh. Does anyone know where you go to do the DL thing?...gosh I'm a lazy sod ..I'm sure that info. came in the SA pack I got with my meet and greet guy.

    I guess your son has never driven and not got a provisional uk licence.

    Once you get your L's here you maust complete 50 hrs of driving with a driver with over 2 yrs expirience and then get an instructor to take you for lessons where he ticks off the items that are neede for him to take the final test.( although it is not a test as such) there is another way to doit involving a VORT whaich I dont know much about as my 2 did it the easier way. Eother way you must have held your L's for 6 months even if you complete the hours and the test in less time. Then he can get them swapped for his P's which means he can drive by himself. I know a great driving instructor, pm me for details if you like. Hope that made some sence to you:wacko:

    Hi there,

     

    That was really useful stuff. We didn't bother getting his prov. in UK as we were coming here. So you're saying the quickest he can do this is 6 months. I guess we'll start taking him out for some lessons ourselves then...and start racking up the 50 hours.

     

    I'll PM you for the name of the instructor :-)

     

    Cheers for the info.
