These learner driver lesson guides are a general outline of the sequence a new driver might take when starting driving lessons. They are designed to take the new driver through the required syllabus before taking the UK driving test.

Apart from the beginner stages the order may differ depending on the location where the training is taking place; for example if a student lives close to a dual carriageway it may be necessary to introduce that skill earlier than usual. Every student is an individual with different levels of ability and confidence which may also determine the order of lessons.

It is not uncommon for students to have to revisit a subject to recap or brush up on a previous learned skill, you may feel that is ‘going backwards’ however that is not the case; when covering more advanced subjects earlier skills may get a little rusty.
