Being able to drive is a great skill to have. It can give you the freedom to go where you want, when you want. 

If you’re paying someone to teach you to drive, they must be an approved driving instructor or a trainee driving instructor.

Passing your test

Losing the L plates is a great achievement, so well done. There are lots of organisations who can help you improve your driving skills after passing your test that can also help to lower your insurance premiums.
