Learning to drive should be a fun and enjoyable experience. With A1 Road Skills it is.

The body that control learning to drive and the driving test, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), lay down very strict regulations concerning the teaching of new drivers.

A1 Road Skills attend several seminars and conferences every year to ensure that our training is to the very highest standard and always completely up to date with industry expectations.

By pooling a vast and varied array of current driver training qualifications and experience into one company, A1 Road Skills are able to offer learner drivers a better way to learn.

By structuring our lessons to suit the exact needs of each individual, our learner drivers develop much quicker into becoming full licence holders and remain safer drivers long after passing their driving test. Our learners remain part of the A1 Road Skills family long after they pass their driving test and can come back to us for advice, or further training, at any time they want.

We fully support the Pass Plus scheme which has been developed by the DVSA to further enhance the newly qualified drivers skills. Many driving schools will charge £100 or more for this course and maybe not give you the full programme. At A1 Road Skills we fully back the subsidised Pass Plus course which has been supported by the Welsh Assembly Government. Giving new drivers the same full DVSA course and certificate - which comes with insurance discounts - the Pass Plus Cymru scheme is all-inclusive for only £20.

Amazingly, for this you get an informative three hour theory session in the company of other newly qualified drivers followed by a 1:1 six hour practical session (or a nine hour 2:1 session if you would prefer to do the course with a friend) taking your driving up to the next level. Typically this training will include driving on dual-carriageways, including crossing the central reservations to join or leave the carriageway motorway driving giving you the confidence and knowledge to join and leave the motorway safely - busy urban driving which will incorporate busy city centre driving, giving you all the skills and confidence you will need to drive anywhere. In other words, giving you the Skills for Life.
