Hello, my name is Cathy Phillips. I became a fully
qualified Government Approved
Driving Instructor (ADI) in 2003.
I’m married with twin boys
who keep me busy when I’m not working.
important that you feel comfortable and relaxed with
your driving instructor.
if you are interested in taking driving lessons
or an intensive driving course with a patient, friendly
driving instructor please contact me.
I give driving tuition in most areas covered by
the Loughborough driving test centre.
Driving test changes from December - 2017
You can apply for your provisional driving licence up to three months before your seventeenth birthday (however, it will not become valid until you are seventeen). You can start your driving lessons as soon as
your provisional driving licence becomes valid.
You can either take driving lessons while studying for your theory test or pass your theory test before
starting driving lessons. The latter option suits pupils who want to pass quickly on an intensive course.
The theory test needs to be passed to book a practical test as the theory certificate number is needed
to book it.
The practical test is booked at the start of any course and the hours are worked back to fit pupil / instructors schedule. Most pupils take regular driving lessons whilst studying for their theory test then book the practical test when they are ready.
You can book your theory test to take place on or shortly after your seventeenth birthday provided you have a provisional driving licence. Click on the link to find your nearest theory test centre
