Driving lessons and practical driving tests can resume from April 23rd, as announced by the NI Executive on April 15th. The booking process for the driving test has reopened but initially only to those whose theory tests expire before October 31st 2021.
I'll be getting everyone organised for lessons over the course of the 15th, 16th and 17th April. Please be patient as there is a lot of organising now needed due to a recent change in the DVA's criteria for booking the driving test.
Hi. I've created this website to provide useful resources and links for learner drivers everywhere, with some of the content tailored for those who take driving lessons with Elliott's School of driving.
My name is Kenny Elliott and I'm a fully qualified and Approved Driving Instructor. I've been delivering driving lessons in County Down since 2010 around the towns where Downpatrick is the main test centre. These places include Saintfield, Crossgar, Killyleagh, Strangford, Ardglass, Newcastle, Castlewellan, Dromara and Ballynahinch and the areas surrounding these towns.
As a whole, I have an excellent reputation with my customers with the vast majority of my business coming from recommendations from past pupils.
Since beginning my career as a driving instructor, it has always been my aim to gain business by growing a reputation for offering high quality driving lessons at competitive prices.
On that basis, I always maintain simple, competitive price plans.
Another benefit is that if you have paid for an hour lesson, then you will be taught for a minimum of 1 hour. Lessons will never be cut short.
I will always strive to get the most out of every lesson, aiming to get learners to test standard as quickly as possible.
One the main reasons for building this website was so that the learners I teach can have a lot of useful resources, all in one place.
Many times, I hear of people who book their theory test through third party websites, paying more than double the standard test fee.
Also, quite a few people I take on lessons might struggle to get a decent grasp of a reversing maneouvre and wish to take notes during the lesson.
For that reason, I've created this page to save time and money for everyone.
Video content on this page will be finished in late February 2021.
Need to know what you need to bring on your driving test?
Can you take lessons in your own car?
What will happen on your driving test?
The answers to these questions and more can be found here. This will be a work in progress. I can't remember all the important questions that I've been asked over the years, but a good few have stuck in my head. The more useful questions that I get asked, the more this page will get filled.
