The first driving lessons often make learners nervous as they don’t know what to expect. On most occasions however, it’s worth knowing that the first driving lesson goes very well and the learner is very happy at the end.
When you originally booked driving lessons with your driving school or instructor, they should have arranged a pick up location with you. This is often your house, or could be a different location such as college or work. How your first driving lesson starts largely depends on the area that you are picked up from and how long the lesson lasts.
If you are being picked up in a busy area, the instructor will meet and greet you and will check your provisional driving licence. The instructor will then ask you to sit in the passenger seat as they will take you somewhere quieter for your first driving lesson.
The area you will be taken to is often a quiet residential street. The instructor will often drive you to this starting location until you are proficient enough to start lessons from your busy pick up location. On the way to your starting area, the instructor is likely to give you a lesson plan, describing what you will do on your first driving lesson.
