How to book your course
Congratulations, you have now taken the first step towards getting your driving licence. Booking a driving course with your local LDC driving school or obtaining the necessary theory test materials and advice couldn’t be easier. Phone our free phone number 0800 400 777 or if using a mobile call 0330 100 2544 for more information. Alternatively, submit the information request form and we will send you a course enrolment form and brochure to your home or email address. You can then complete the form and return it to us with your payment. We accept most credit and debit cards, as well as cheques. We will also accept cash and postal orders but recommend you send them registered post. If you book through the central office you will also benefit from the Customer Care Payment Protection Scheme (see Terms of service for more details). You can also purchase a course or hourly lessons online through our store or indeed directly with your local LDC driving school operator.
Once we receive your booking we will arrange for your local LDC instructor to contact you to organise your driving lessons. If you have already passed your theory test your instructor will usually book your driving test immediately and plan all your lessons with you either by telephone or on their initial visit. Many of the instructors also conduct a free home visit before the course starts to help explain how everything works. Some are even willing to do this before you book so that you can meet them and discuss the various courses available. Feel free to ring them direct to see what they can do for you. If you have not passed your theory test your instructor will organise the first part of your driving course but he or she will have to wait until you have passed the theory test before booking the driving test.
Please note if you have not passed your theory test you will need to allocate about 10 hours of study time to fully prepare for this test. If you purchase any of our theory test materials we will be happy to book your theory test for you. The current charge for this service is £9 plus the actual cost of the test.
Please note, if you have dyslexia or language difficulties a voice-over test can be arranged.
Once you have booked your driving course and/or Theory Course home study package through the LDC National Booking Office you will be sent written confirmation of your booking along with the relevant materials. If your booking includes driving tuition your confirmation letter will contain the name and contact telephone number for your local LDC instructor. Your instructor will have your details as well and will be contacting you directly to plan your course. However, if you prefer, feel free to contact them on the number provided on your booking confirmation. We will also post the LD driving skills workbook and video DVDs if you have booked a course. These materials are for you to keep.
