Manchester International Driving Licence Conversion Course
Manchester Driver Training has 2 courses available for
holders of International Driving Licences.
Both courses aim to make you aware of the rules and regulations
to be able to drive safely in the UK on the left hand side of the
Our conversion courses take into account that you have experience
driving either a manual or automatic vehicle in a different part
of the world, so you will already have built up driving experience.
We aim to build upon your existing driving experience to help you
be prepared to drive on UK roads
Requirements to obtain a Full UK driving licence:
To obtain a full UK driving licence you must pass both the UK theory
test and the UK practical driving test.
The UK theory test is a self study exercise so therefore please
refer to our Theory Test tips page
that will help you to prepare for this.
The preparation for your UK practical driving test comes from the
driving lesson conversion course.
Course 1: UK Driving Awareness Course (without undertaking a UK practical driving test)
You can only use an International driving licence to drive for
a period of 1 year from when you enter the UK.
You can undertake driving lessons with a Manchester
Driver Training driving Instructor for only the first year in
which you have entered the UK.
After this time your International licence is no longer valid and
you would need to apply for a UK provisional driving licence.
This course is designed to boost your skills and awareness and
increase your reaction times towards any hazards around you.
The course is ideal if you only intend to drive for the period
of a year from when you have entered the UK and wish to gain experience
from a Manchester Driver Training driving instructor.
Course 2: Driving Lessons to Convert from an International Licence
to a Full UK Licence:
This course aims to prepare you to be ready to undertake the UK
practical driving test.
Your Manchester driving lessons will cover:
- The various road junctions you have to be able to negotiate safely
and under control, that you may encounter on your driving test.
- Various reversing exercises to show that you are able to reverse
your vehicle under control, with good observation and accuracy.
- You will learn how to plan ahead with regards to being aware of
other road users around you.
- You will practice how to follow Sat Nav routes and traffic signs.
There will be the opportunity to undertake practice tests to see
how your driving matches up to the UK driving test standard.
