Learning Centre

Welcome to The Golden Mile Driving School learning Centre. Here you can study various subjects of the driving syllabus. This section will be helpful to those who are currently taking driving lessons with our driving school. Even if you are not a student of our driving school then we hope this learning centre is of use to you.

Getting Started.

Firstly, we strongly advise that you purchase the latest copy of the Highway Code.  The Highway Code is essential reading. Many of the rules in the Code are legal requirements and if you disobey these rules you are committing a criminal offence. 

You may be fined, given penalty points on your licence or be disqualified from driving. In the most serious cases you may be sent to prison. 

If you are student of our driving school then you will have FREE unlimited access to Theory Test Pro, and this has an online copy of the Highway Code. We advise you keep up to date even when you’ve passed your driving test, as rules and regulations often change and its best to keep your knowledge fresh. Of course, you’re welcome to come back here anytime to refresh your knowledge. We aim to regularly add new content.
