lengths) with Glasses if you wear them. This is a legal requirement -
This is the first item I will check - Foot
wear should be suitable - flip flops are a no no. I know some people
who drive in bare feet! - Just use a little common sense.
I will check you licence - I WILL need to see both parts. Unless you

a quiet area. Depending where you live this may be a mile or two away.
you have had lessons before - it will depend on the road
conditions where you live. But I often just drive you round the corner.
