Before starting your lessons it is a good idea to obtain and start reading The Highway Code. There are various other books and CD ROM’s on the market that are useful to have. I can advise you on these on the first lesson or alternatively if you wish to buy any books before your lessons then please contact me for advice on the best ones.
Do you have a foreign licence? You can usually drive on them for 12 months after entering the UK and you may be able to exchange it for a UK licence. If you require more details then you need to contact the DVLA. You may need to take a UK test - I can help you.
