The Four Steps Process

Shaw’s Driver Training understands how overwhelming it can be on taking the first step to achieving your licence. So we’ve broken it down into four, clear and easy steps to show you how simple it is to get started.

Step 1

Our Shaw’s Driver Training starter pack will get you set up with all the necessary forms; this includes your D2 application form, D4 medical form, and advice and guidance on handy tutorial material for preparation of the Theory and Hazard Perception tests.

After your medical has been passed, we can assist you (if required) in completing the D2 form, which along with the completed doctors D4 forms, can then be posted off to the DVLA. Once your new provisional licence has arrived back, you can call us to arrange your free driving assessment at a time convenient for you.

Step 2

The three DVSA theory tests (multiple choice, hazard perception and CPC Module 2) can all be booked online at the same time at an accredited theory test centre, operated by The Pearson Group. The local centre is at Abbey Lawns, Shrewsbury. Other nearby centres include Wolverhampton and Chester. Find your nearest centre.

Step 3

Once you have informed us that you have passed all three of the theory tests, we can then plan and book you in for your both of your practical parts of the process. Both of the practical tests will be booked ahead at a convenient time for you. The CPC Module 4 is usually done over a weekend, Saturday or Sunday morning to suit.

The part 3 driver training course can also be spread over a weekend to finish with your test day being a Monday or Tuesday. Or, more conventionally, start Monday AM or PM and take your test Thursday or Friday (depending on course length advised).

Through our DVSA Trainer Booker portal, we will structure your course to ensure that the final day of the course will be test day. We always allocate time on test day for a pre-test practice drive, question and answer session on safety questions and reverse practice (if required). All of this will be arranged by your instructor to help you be confident and relaxed, ready for your test.

The CPC Module 4 training and assessment is performed first as this is only a half a day course. The instructor will spend a few hours thoroughly going over all five topic areas of the test, using the vehicle that you will be being assessed on.

Once this is completed, our own in house DVSA Qualified Assessor will take over and carry out the assessment, lasting approximately thirty minutes. On successful completion, you will be issued a pass certificate that will be your Driver Qualification proof of passing the test whilst you are awaiting the issue of your Driver CPC Qualification Card. You are legally allowed to drive commercially after passing your part 3 driving test.

The CPC Qualification card will not be processed and posted out by DVLA until you have passed a vocational category practical part 3 driving test.

Step 4

The driver training course to prepare you for your practical driving test, can now be commenced. This will be completed at your chosen test station, usually the Harlescott, Shrewsbury test station, for students living in the Shropshire area.

Your DVSA Qualified Instructor will structure your training to be informative and productive. Day one will focus on an introduction to your instructor and the vehicle, exploring all of the controls and driving aids of the vehicle you are training in. You will also cover your planned daily progress and a run through of your Shaw’s Training Course handout.

As part of this step we will cover the usual routes taken by an examiner from your test station. We will give you the skill and understanding that will enable you to react and make decisions in this large vehicle, keeping you safe and professional.

You will be well informed of the content of the course and what you will be covering over the few days leading up to test day. You will receive in advance of the course start date , one of our SHAWS Driver Training Manuals . This manual has all the information required to assist you over the Training Course.Your Instructor will be fully qualified and experienced to guide you through the course, getting you ready and confident to take the driving test.
