We have set out a syllabus that covers the requirements of the DVSA practical test. Time taken to cover and master the routines depends on the ability of individual students. It is up to the students to ensure that they have taken sufficient tuition according to their needs. Students will be guided by their instructors. After you have mastered basic skills and are safe, you can get extra practice with your parents if you so wish.

Orbit school of motoring hire a school car to the students on the day of their test. This service is not automatic. To avail yourselves of this service you must have reached an acceptable standard of driving.
