What happens in your first driving lesson?

During your first driving lesson, you probably won't do much actual driving. Your first driving lesson tends to cover the basics of getting to grips with the car controls. You'll also do what's known as the cockpit drill, which is a series of checks you should always do before starting the engine.

You'll do this on a quiet road so there won't be any pressure from other drivers, and towards the end of the lesson, you'll normally start to learn how to accelerate and move off.
