LDA offer refresher driving courses for anyone who would like to update their driving skills, break bad habits, improve their driving techniques and reduce the risk of accident.
Driving is an essential part of family and working life for millions of people every day. Due to the increased number of road users, it is much more challenging than it used to be. Road conditions may be very different to when you first passed your test. Our friendly, DSA approved instructors can help you to enjoy driving again by revisiting techniques to polish up your skills.
Are you in Need of a Refresher?
It is our belief that every driver would benefit from a refresher course in the same way that new drivers benefit from taking a pass plus course. We all pick up bad habits over time and most of us would actually fail our driving test if we were to take it again today.
- The roads are more congested
- Vehicles themselves have changed
- There is a much greater emphasis on safety

How many lessons will I need?
Our refresher driving courses normally consist of 6 hours of lesson time. Although, the number of lessons required may depend on the needs of the individual student. Some students are very anxious or nervous, others haven’t driven for a very long time, and some are international drivers who need to become accustomed to driving in the UK. With this in mind, courses at LDA can be tailored to each individual driver after undergoing an initial assessment by a professional instructor.
