At Herne Hill Driving School, we provide driving lessons for many new road users in Norwood and the surrounding South London area. Our aim as one of the leading local driving schools is to help you pass your driving test and to give you the freedom, confidence and skills needed to use the road safely.


Like all reputable driving schools covering the Dulwich area, we pride ourselves on so much more than just helping the learner pass their test. Herne Hill Driving School has also helped many previous students improve on their skills with refresher driving lessons. These lessons have proved to be very popular with our Dulwich and South London clients.


Once you’ve completed the course of driving lessons and the theory test, we will recommend the most suitable time to apply for your practical driving test. Your practical driving test proves to an examiner that you are confident behind the wheel and that you have the ability to drive safely.


Unlike some driving schools in the Norwood area, we only advise you to put in for a practical test when the time is right. While this may result in you needing more driving lessons this side of the test, it improves the chances of a first-time pass. Nothing can be more confidence-sapping than multiple test failures.


Our approach to driving lessons makes the subsequent test straightforward as we’ll always have you properly trained for the big day. A test will last about 40 minutes and will be conducted by a DVSA examiner. This will see you driving round a course at the test centre and then onto outside roads in and around the Norwood area. Our driving schools and lessons prepare you for both.


You will also be tested on your eyesight, where you will be asked to read a number plate from a set distance. You will then be asked a couple of questions about the car to prove you know enough to drive it safely and competently.


The rest of the test will consist of you showing that you can drive a car safely with confidence and competence using a series of skills and manoeuvres. As one of the most detailed driving schools to cover Norwood, all of these skills and manoeuvres will have been covering in previous driving lessons.


When taking the test, we find that most of our pupils like to use the car they have learned in. Herne Hill Driving School can arrange for the use of one of our vehicles if it helps you to feel more confident. We can even provide pre-test driving lessons for Norwood students.


At the end of the test, the examiner will let you know if you’ve passed or failed. If you’ve failed, the examiner will give you the reasons why. A large percentage of our learner drivers pass first time so we always expect the outcome to be a positive one!
