Car Training


You must be 17 years of age and hold a valid provisional licence. If you don’t have a provisional licence this can be obtained by applying direct from the direct gov website or by completing a D1 form which is available from our office.

The cost of a provisional licence is £34 (if applied for online) or £43 (when applied by post) this can be applied for up to three months before your 17th birthday. Providing a valid provisional licence is available to view a lesson can be given on your 17th birthday.

Taking your driving lessons with 1st Link Driving School will help you pass your test quickly and easily with a structured course tailored to your needs and requirements.

You will find your time with 1st Link Driving School very supportive and we will move along at a pace that you feel happy with.

We highly recommend 2 hour driving lessons if possible. In a 2 hour lesson the instructor can cover much more ground as you are only having to recap and become familiar with the car once. This is particularly beneficial in the beginning. We find that pupils learn quicker and pass with fewer lessons if they have 2 hours at a time.

Services that we offer:

  • Help and advice with your theory test, in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu
  • Manual vehicles
  • Your choice of lesson length: 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 120 minutes.
  • Flexible pick up and drop off in and around Leicester
  • Dedicated one-to-one tuition
  • Discounts for block bookings
  • Dual controlled cars for your safety

You can also benefit from…

  • Pass Plus Courses to further improve your skills after you pass and reduce your insurance costs
  • Motorway lessons for maximum safety and confidence
  • Gift vouchers – the ideal present for those finding it hard to buy for teenagers
