[INFOGRAPHIC] The Costs of Learning to Drive

If you’re starting to learn to drive, then I’m sure that you’ve been pre-warned about the costs involved with learning to drive. You’re probably getting fed up with all of the people asking you if you can afford it.

If you’re new to driving, it’s usually a pretty good idea to get to grips with the costs that you will need to cover. Fortunately, we created this free infographic that you can download and use as a reference going forward.

It’s a simple guide that explains the average costs of learning to drive in the UK. You can even share it with your friends and family on social media

Free Download: You can download our free Infographic detailing the costs of learning to drive here.

Cost of Learning to Drive Infographic

The average costs of learning to drive in the UK:

We did a little research before creating this awesome infographic. These following points will help you gauge how much it actually costs to learn to drive. Unfortunately, if you thought you could fly through, keeping things relatively cheap – I’m afraid you’ve been misinformed and a lot of surprises await you.

1. The Cost of Driving Lessons

Arguably the first expense that most new drivers think of.

It’s always a good idea to do your research and see how much driving lessons cost in your area. Fortunately, there are a few little tricks that you can implement in an effort to get hold of some cheaper driving lessons.

Let’s take a look at this example:

The cost of driving lessons in Blackburn with driveJohnson’s is currently priced at £20.00 for new drivers. The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) predicts that on average, a new pupil will need at least 45 hours of driving lessons to pass.

After researching we found that the average costs for a driving lessons in major cities in the UK is £21.78 per lesson.

That comes to a grand total of £980.22 based on the UK’s average. However, with driveJohnsons that figure comes down to an impressive £900 – That’s a saving of £80.22!

If you want to save money on driving lessons, consider looking at driving schools and instructors that operate in the areas that surround your town or city. In some cases, instructors may be willing to travel to you in order to gain a new pupil. If so, they may even be cheaper than schools within the city.

2. Having Learner Driver Insurance for Driving

Sticking with the theme of the DVSA, they also recommend that new drivers have 22 hours of private driving tuition as well as the 45 hours alongside a qualified driving instructor:

That’s great… but there are additional costs to this too. For example, you’ll need a car that you can learn to drive in, most pupils tend to use a parents vehicle with them supervising.

Of course, you’re going to need insurance to make sure you’re covered for any incidents that may occur when you’re behind the wheel. We looked into the costs of cover for learners on a provisional license:

30 days of cover (enough to get you through 22 hours of private driving) has an average cost of £107.13.

3. Taking Your Theory Test

If you’ve done your research, you’ll know that you cannot take a practical driving test until you have passed the Theory Training. Another cost of learning to drive is the fee that you need to pay in order to take the test.

The UK theory test is split into two main sections; Hazard Perception and Multiple Choice questions that cover everyday driving scenarios.

In order to pass the theory test, you must achieve a pass mark no lower than 86% for the general theory questions and 56% for the hazard perception.

The cost of a theory test is £23. It’s advised that you pass your theory training before you begin taking driving lessons as you will be able to take advantage of cancellations at test centres if your practical driving is at a test standard and you have completed the theory training.

4. Your Practical Driving Test

For the sake of the this post on the costs of learning to drive, we went on the basis that you could only get a practical driving test on a weekday evening:

The costs of taking your practical test does differ slightly, depending on the time of day that you’re due to be examined. For example:

  • A weekday driving test is priced at £62
  • A driving test taken during the evening, weekend or bank holiday is £75

Paying for Practical Test

5. Getting a Provisional Driving License

You may, or may not be aware that before you can start learning to drive – you need to obtain a valid UK Provisional driving license:

If you’re a little unsure of how to order one – you can order a provisional driving license here from the GOV.uk website. Now that you have a provisional license you can start learning to drive by booking driving lessons in Wakefield or other locations such as Dewsbury, Basildon and other major towns and cities in the UK.

A provisional driving license costs £43.00 if you apply via post. However, you can obtain your provisional license for a cheaper price of £34.00 if you apply online.

6. Additional Driver Training Materials

When you start learning to drive, all you want to know if how long will it take to pass and how much will learning to drive cost?

A great way to speed up the process of your learning experience is by purchasing a driver training CD-ROM.

These cost effective training discs include all of the following and put you in a great position to pass faster:

  • Theory Test Training
  • Hazard Perception Training
  • Practical Driving Lesson Preparation
  • Mock Driving Tests
  • Show Me, Tell Me Questions and more

Driver training CD-ROM’s can be purchased from as little as £9.99.

7. Learner and New Driver Plates

You’ll have the “L” plates already positioned on your driving instructors vehicle when you begin to take lessons.

However, as we mentioned earlier in this post, its recommended that you do what you can get in an additional 22 hours of private driving lessons. If you do go ahead with this, you will need to purchase “L Plates” to position on your vehicle.

These plates signal to other road users that you’re a new driver currently under tuition. However, this doesn’t mean you can do what you like on the road. You must always remain cautious and be aware of potential hazards and obstacles.

“P Plates” on the other hand represent a new driver that has recently passed their practical driving test. Again, just like the L plate, they provide other drivers with sufficient warning that you’re new to driving on your own, without an instructor or examiner.

Both L and P plates can be purchased easily from supermarkets, auto stores and various other retail locations. These plates usually cost £10 on average.

Recap on Driving Expenses:

Hopefully by now, you’ve got a pretty good idea of the costs involved with learning to drive.

Unfortunately, learning to drive isn’t cheap. However, using this guide on the costs of learning to drive, you can begin to prepare yourself for driving tuition and gaining your license.

When you do begin to take driving lessons in Basildon, London or any location, the important thing to remember is to listen to what your driving instructor has to say. After all – they are fully qualified instructors and know exactly what it takes to pass safely, and quickly.

Is there a way to get driving lessons cheaper? – If you want cheap driving lessons, a great way to do so is through an intensive driving course. In short… you book a series of driving lessons over a shorter period of time, increasing the rate of your learning experience. Intensive driving courses have proven to be a cheaper way of passing your driving test quickly.

5 Driving Offences You Commit Every Day (Hint: You Didn’t Even Know)

If you’re driving and you see blue flashing lights in your rear-view mirror, a couple of things go through your head:

Number one, “is that for me?”

And number two, “but I didn’t do anything wrong?”

However, there are a number of driving offences that you could be committing everyday without even realising.

So before you find yourself pleading your innocence to an officer on the side of an A road, consider these driving offences:

  • Have you been speeding?
  • Are you driving without a licence or insurance?
  • Have you consumed any substances that you shouldn’t have?

The above points are the most common reasons behind illegal driving.

#1 How Clean Are Your Registration Plates?

Did you know that driving a vehicle without legal or clean registration plates is a driving offence?

Although, it may seem minor, it is still a careless traffic offence. Failing to provide your vehicle with legal registration plates will result in the following:

  • Up to a £1000 fine
  • Fail on your MOT

So how do you know if your registration plates are legal? To ensure that your vehicle is not committing any driving offences, ensure that your plates meet the following criteria:

  • Be created using only a reflective material
  • The front plate should display only black characters on a white background
  • The rear plate should display only black characters on a yellow background
  • Ensure that there is no background pattern present

#2 Get The Road Rage Monkey Off Your Back

You may not believe it, but by driving aggressively and shouting at other road users you are in fact committing a traffic offence.

A worrying statistic stated that over 60% of fatalities on the road where caused by aggressive driving.

Traffic Offences UK

[source:safemotorist.com]

What causes even more cause for concern is the fact that you could be committing road rage motoring offences and not even realise it!

Quickly ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I drive over the speed limit on a regular basis, or try to beat red lights?
  • Do I tailgate or flash my lights at other motorists?
  • Am I an avid “horn-honker” on a regular basis?
  • Have I ever used aggressive language or gestures when driving?

If you have answered yes to just one of these questions – then I’m afraid to say that you have committed a road rage offence.

Even if you haven’t committed any of the above motoring offences, you may have been the cause.

If you answered no, go ahead and answer these questions too:

  • Do I use my phone when I am driving?
  • Do I keep my full beam on when driving through country roads?
  • Have I ever changed lanes or direction without a signal?
  • Do you always check your mirrors and blindspots?

We complete a lot of driving instructor training, and many of those new instructors have gained bad habits over the years.

Fortunately, our courses enable them to rediscover their safe driving ability to teach our endless supply of new pupils.

#3 Great Night! Should I Really Be Driving?

Simple answer – No!

There is no doubt that a drink driving offence is one of the most serious out there.

The severity of a guilty drink driving motoring offence can vary, but you can certainly expect to receive something along the lines of the following:

  • Up to a £5000 fine
  • A community sentence, electronically tagged curfew or even up to 6 months in prison
  • Disqualification from driving for up to 12 months
  • Up to a 3 year disqualification if you have been found guilty on more than one occasion
  • Loss of employment
  • Increased insurance payments
  • A criminal record

All in all – it’s not really worth it, is it?

Some drivers are even over the limit after they have stopped consuming alcohol. Depending on the amount consumed, the presence of alcohol can still be in the body up to 16 hours later!

If you are going to be consuming alcohol, try not to be careless and stick to the limits. The current legal driving limits for alcohol consumption are:

  • 35 micrograms in 100ml of breath
  • 80mg in 100ml of blood
  • 107mg in 100ml of urine

For all of our driving lessons Blackburn, we ensure that our instructors have not consumed anything within the last 48 hours.

This makes sure that they’re in the best possible condition to teach our pupils how to drive safely, without clouding their judgement or driving ability.

Motoring Offences in the UK

#4 The Dangers of Drug Driving

Now this isn’t an everyday driving offence, but it is worth pointing out nonetheless.

After a little research, we found that there are two main offences that reform around drug driving. It’s illegal to drive if:

  • You are unfit to do so because of legal or illegal drugs in your system
  • You have a certain level of illegal drugs in your system

Of course, some motorists take prescribed, legal drugs and still drive perfectly safely.

However, there are some legal drugs that you should consult your doctor about before you get behind the wheel.

There are 12 prescribed drugs that you should talk to a doctor about:

  • Amphetamines (Dexamphetamine or Selegiline)
  • Clonazepam
  • Diazepam
  • Flunitrazepam
  • Lorazepam
  • Methadone
  • Morphine
  • Codeine
  • Tramadol
  • Fentanyl
  • Oxazepam
  • Temazepam

Important – There is still a chance that you could be prosecuted with these legal drugs in your system and you have not been prescribed them.

The safest thing to do is simple – don’t drug drive.

If you are found guilty of drug driving, you will:

  • Receive a 12 month driving ban
  • Be the recipient of an unlimited fine
  • Face up to 6 months in prison
  • Receive a criminal record

#5 The Digital Dilemma, Leave Your Phone

Recently in the UK, the laws that surround the use of a mobile phone in a car have changed.

Using a mobile phone when driving will result in:

  • 6 penalty points on your driving licence
  • A £200 fine
  • A motoring ban
  • Receive a maximum fine of £1000 or £2500 if you drive a lorry or bus

Find out more on driving with a mobile phone here.

Answer us this simple question:

Do you use your phone when stopped at a red light?

If so, you could be breaking the law and it is only a matter of time before a police officer catches you.

You are technically breaking the law if you:

  • Use your phone at a red light or stop sign
  • Use your phone or tablet when queuing in traffic
  • If you supervise a learner driver

Many or our instructors that provide driving lessons Aylesbury use mobile devices to help teach their pupils.

Fortunately, the use of a mobile device is allowed when:

  • The vehicle is safely parked with the ignition off
  • If you ever need to call 999 or the emergency services

Careless Driving Offences

Drive Safely and Use What You Have Learned

Don’t panic. If you have discovered a few driving offences that you are guilty of, we’re not going to go running to the police.

However, use these 5 actionable driving offences to change the way you use your vehicle every day.

There are traffic driving offences committed daily and the UK’s enforcement teams are improving year on year.

Use the following to reduce the chances of committing a careless motoring offence:

  • Keep your registration plates clean and legal (See point #1)
  • Take action against your road rage (See point #2)
  • Under no circumstances should you be drink driving (See point #3)
  • Consult your GP if you take prescribed drugs (See point #4)
  • Avoid using a mobile phone. Out of sight, out of mind (See point #5)

Welcome the £20 Diesel “Toxin Tax” for Cars and Goods Vehicles

If you’re the driver of a diesel fuelled vehicle, you could soon become a victim of the government’s latest initiative to help improve air quality across the major cities in the UK – the £20 daily “Toxin Tax”.

Diesel fuelled vehicles have constantly been under intense scrutiny for a number of years and it seems that the British government is now stepping up their game to further reduce the number of diesel fuelled cars and vehicles on the roads in Britain major cities.

Diesel Car Fuelling Station

What is the Toxin Tax?

The “Toxin Tax” is the government’s latest initiative that has been designed to help reduce the pollution in the air in the UK’s major cities. It aims to reduce the volume of diesel drivers on the roads in a big to improve the quality of air that currently circulates our largest cities.

The toxin tax will not affect new vehicles or those that meet a specific emissions check. However, the following vehicles will certainly be effected and need to pay a daily £20 fee.

  • Lorries
  • Coaches
  • Passenger Cars
  • Taxi’s

Which Cities Will Pay a Toxin Tax?

This new scheme will not affect all of the cities across the UK.

It is designed to be introduced into the cities that have the highest volume of air pollution. The most obvious cities that will start paying the toxin tax include; London, Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby, Leeds and Southampton.

However, no other cities have yet been confirmed. Although after completing a little further research the following cities also have significantly higher pollution levels and could soon become a victim of the daily £20 toxin tax – Manchester, Bristol, Sheffield and Liverpool.

Who Will Be Affected?

There are more than 10,000,000 diesel drivers that will be affected by this new tax. That includes HGV drivers, taxi cab drivers and even driving instructors that operate in the major cities and provide driving lessons in London and other larger areas.

Why it may pay to buy a new vehicle when you pass your driving test

It’s become standard procedure when you pass your driving test to buy a banger, run around in it for 2-3 years and build up your no claims bonus then buy a newer car when you haven’t got any claims, you’re older and earning more money.

But what if you have a serious accident? What would your chances of survival be compared to a new car?

The Daily Mail published an article showing the differences between a 1997 Rover Metro and the new Honda Jazz and the chances of injury/survival.

Now we are not promoting everyone should get finance and buy a new car, just giving you some food for thought.

Anthony Johnson (owner of driveJohnson’s) said the following, “if parents are buying their child their first car and they can afford to go new, I would definitely recommend it for the safety reasons. If it was my daughter I would ensure they have a black box for insurance purposes and I would make sure she’s giving me lifts now and again to keep tabs on her driving style.”

Watch the video here and see the difference in safety:

Anthony’s top 3 things to look out for

Following other vehicles too close. There’s no benefit, reduces your view ahead and if you hit the person in front from behind, it’s your fault. Know your stopping distances!

– Approach speed to hazards/junctions. Braking early and progressively is vital so it warns road users behind you of your intentions, giving you more time to assess/plan the approach to the hazard/junction. Many learners and new drivers aren’t thinking “what if?” on the approach to things like bends where the view is restricted, only to come round the bend and not be ready for an immediate hazard.

– General lane position and correct use of MSPSL for changing lanes/overtaking. Many learners learn when to check the mirrors for a test but don’t buy into the reasons. Sometimes that’s the instructor’s fault and sometimes it’s the pupils attitude to driving and not fully comprehending the consequences. It’s essential to check the mirrors early and in good time before changing direction, slowing down, increasing speed and for potential developing hazards. Many learners do it too late and luckily get away with it. If you’re driving for 50-60 years like this, at some point something will be there and there will be no or little time to react to what you have seen in the mirrors.

Sourcing a new car when you pass

Jack Forster who is taking his driving lessons in Hounslow with one of our instructors said “I’ve just sourced myself a car for £99 a month from a car contract hire company. I have to pay 3 months upfront and i’ve got the car for 2 years. It’s an affordable way of sourcing a new car if you have a full time job”.

Student and Instructor Caught Drink Driving

It is common knowledge that you should not drink and drive as it is against the law. But recently in Southampton, a student taking his driving lessons was caught drink driving with his instructor! Both the instructor and driver blew 100+ when the police breathalysed them both after there was a call about a road traffic accident. The legal limit to drink before driving is just 35mg of alcohol, which is equivalent to one shot of whiskey and nothing else. The student was released with no charge, whilst the instructor will appear in front of the courts at a later date.

Learner Driver Caught Drink Driving

We are proud to say that this wasn’t our driving instructor, this can give you reassurance that when you drive with driveJohnsons, your driving instructor will not be breaking the law as they are professional and experienced.

5 Drivers Caught at 140mph

Drivers Breaking the Speed Limit

drivers speedingFive drivers have recently been caught speeding over 140mph. The two fastest, were caught doing speeds of 146mph and were both caught on the M25. The three other drivers were also speeding at over 140mph, with one reaching 145mph, another at 141mph and the other, 140mph. Paul Witters, a member of the AA said that “we need to find out what happened to these offenders as a message to others. We want to know if they were caught and prosecuted.”

 

Getting caught reaching these types of speeds may get you jail-time, as well as a hefty fine and a driving ban.

The worst speeders in 2014:
146mph Twice on the M25 (70mph limit)
145mph M6 Toll (70mph limit)
141mph A1 in Lincolnshire (70mph limit)
128mph A22 in West Sussex (30mph limit)
119mph M1 in Leicestershire (50mph limit)
112mph M20 in Maidstone (70mph limit)

 

The driver in Maidstone was fined and received a driving ban for his excessive speeding. he will now need to take his driving lessons in Maidstone again and also reapply for his driving license.

 

Witters continued, “these figures show that there is a need for stealth cameras, specifically on the M25.” An emergency stop is also virtually impossible at these speeds and can cause your car to skid and swerve uncontrollably, making accidents almost unavoidable.

 

Sarah Sillars, said: “Travelling at a speed of 140mph, you’re travelling at nearly two and a half miles per minute; at a speed like that, it’s impossible for an individual to react to anything that might happen in front of them.” Road users need to know their stopping distances and at 140mph, you wouldn’t be able to stop quickly enough to prevent any accident happening.

 

“Driving at inappropriate speeds can be the difference between getting home safely and ending up in a hospital, prison cell or even worse.”

 

 

Bike Stolen in car Accident in Leeds

Bike Theft in Leeds

bike stolen in leeds

A keen cyclist has spoken about how his £1,700 bike was stolen in broad daylight, when he was laying injured in the road following a collision with a 4×4.

 

55 year old Shane Fitzsimons from Bramley, Leeds was making his way to the shopping centre when he was knocked out by a Mitsubishi Pajero on Broadlea Hill, Bramley – after the car had lost it’s lane discipline. As Shane lay unconscious in the road, his mountain bike was stolen, even though there were a witnesses stopped to help.

 

Drifting in and out of consciousness, Shane recalled ‘I saw a guy on the bike riding off, I was in so much shock I didn’t say anything.’ Shane hit his head on the windscreen of the vehicle, breaking his helmet and knocking him unconscious. The accident also caused a broken arm, wrist, collar bone and rib. Shane has also had to take time off from his advertising job due to the accident.

 

The driver of the Mitsubishi was shaken up after the accident, but is now taking some rehabilitation driving lessons in Leeds.

 

Even after being given names of potential suspects, police have still not found the thief who is thought to still be in the Broadleas estate area. Unfortunately, CCTV evidence was not sufficient in identifying the man.

 

The stolen bicycle is a Saracen Ariel 161 mountain bike, featuring black Superstar handlebars, a blue clamp and Uberbike Components blue gear cables.

Anyone with any information should call the NPT via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Two Oxford Pupils Pass Their Driving Test With ZERO Minors on the same day

Even More Zero Minor Passes!

There are many driving instructors out there that can go their whole teaching career and never achieve the ultimate: Getting a pupil to drive perfectly on the day of their driving test and achieve ZERO minor faults.

For one of our driving instructors in Oxford, it was business as usual – until he had two pupils pass first time, with zero minors in the same day.

Below, you can see a very happy ‘Paiboon Nashphat’ with his pass certificate on the left and his exam paper on the right with Zero minors.

Paiboon said “It’s all down to my instructor, without him, I could never have achieved this result”.

Neil Martin‘s day got even better when ‘Liam Mills’ passed with 0 driver faults in Oxford after just 14hrs of lessons.

Liam Said “To pass in just 14 hours was amazing, to pass with zero minors as well was unthinkable in my mind. I knew I had a good chance of passing because Neil said I was ready but I never anticipated the examiner saying I was a perfect driver.”

Below you can see ‘Liam’ loving life with his pass certificate and a test sheet so clean you could eat your dinner off it.

Aylesbury Taxi Defects Rise

Faults with Aylesbury Cabs Increase

Taxi cab signRecently the Bucks Herald – Aylesbury’s local newspaper released some disturbing news about Aylesbury taxi defects on the increase.

On September 1st 2013 the police completed 13 spot checks on private hire vehicles in Aylesbury. Eight of the vehicles had serious defects. So serious that the police removed their plates and ordered the problems to be fixed and a new MOT to be completed with immediate affect. Six fixed penalty notices were handed out.

Sergeant Simon Hills said: “These results are somewhat disturbing, we rely on the professionalism of our private hire and hackney carriage drivers to keep their passengers safe on the roads.

“To find that 85% of the vehicles stopped were carrying a defect is of concern to the police, VOSA and the taxi licensing authority. Quote taken from: www.bucksherald.co.uk/news

 

There is a noticeable rise in complaints about taxi drivers within the Aylesbury community. Social media has taken over the world and makes it even easier for people to voice their misfortune. One person published on Spotted: Aylesbury about their recent car accident in a taxi. She said “My taxi driver was driving so fast he hit a learner driver from behind whilst they were doing their driving lesson in Aylesbury. He was also on his phone stupid idiot”

 

Not all taxi drivers in Aylesbury are guilty of bad driving or poor safety standards. Anthony Johnson (owner of driveJohnson’s) spoke to Mike Ridley who has been a taxi driver for 15 years and Mike said the following “8 out of 13 taxis is shocking. I’ve been a cabbie for 15 years and not once has my vehicle failed it’s MOT. Before I go out everyday I will always check my tyres and get the Mrs to check my brakes are working, I owe it to the customers to keep them as safe as possible whilst they are in my car. If everyone was like me, taxi drivers would have a good reputation”.

 

Are the taxi drivers standards high enough? Share your thoughts below.
