“After reading the good reviews and seeing the reasonable prices, I decided to choose Lytes Driving School. I had previously had several driving instructors whilst learning to drive. But Dave made me feel capable and confident in my driving, just after one lesson. I found Dave’s methods during my driving lessons simple and easy to understand. He broke down any insecurities I had, and made learning an easy experience. I would definitely recommend Lytes Driving School, because Dave is very polite, friendly and capable of teaching anyone. I am just grateful for finding a great driving instructor.”

“I chose Lytes Driving School for practicality and because of the good reviews.
I was a lot more relaxed in the car during my driving lessons than I expected to be, and felt comfortable after a short amount of time. My driving instructor, Dave’s methods were very good. Dave was very reassuring which helped me to keep calm. He gave me very good advice to improve and pass first time! I feel very confident now and I think I could handle difficult situations as a driver! Therefore, I would definitely recommend Lytes Driving School. Thank you for all your Help and support.”
Thank you to Jenny for the kind words. Jenny has be delightful to work with during her driving lessons and thoroughly deserves to pass her driving test 1st time.

Autumn and winter can be the time for fog. It can descend quickly or be patchy. Anyone who has suddenly hit a bank of dense fog will know that it can be very alarming. Your view can decrease to virtually nothing instantaneously.
Usually I like to add a bit of humour into my Blog posts and driving lessons. However, fog is one of the most dangerous things we encounter. Take it seriously and get there safely. At some point you will have to drive in the fog for the first time. As driving instructors we have to be very careful about safety, so driving in fog may not be possible before you take your test. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency will not run driving tests in the fog.
Clearly the best advice is not to drive. However, we may all find ourselves stuck amongst the grey mist, and have little option.
You must use fog lights when visibility is below 100 meters. You must also use dipped headlights.
Drive at a speed that you can stop the car in the distance you can see to be clear. You may find that when following another vehicle it may appear that they are going unnecessarily slowly. Don’t be fooled by this. You will have the advantage of their rear lights and headlights to guide you. These can as lull you into a dangerous false sense of security. Don’t be tempted to overtake. If you do you will often find that when you pass them you seem to hit a wall of fog and your view is dramatically reduced.
Main beam can reflect off the fog and decrease your view, so dipped headlights are usually best. Front fog lights are mounted low and illuminate below the fog. However, the light does not penetrate far into the fog.
If a vehicle is following too closely don’t accelerate to get away from them. You will only be travelling faster into a potentially dangerous situation.
Use your demisters and wipers if necessary.
Satellite navigation systems can help to show you the bends ahead, but stay focused on the road.
Allow more time, possibly a lot more time for your journey.
At junctions open your windows. You will often hear approaching vehicles before you see them.
If the word “FOG” is shown on an overhead gantry expect sudden and thick fog.
Remember you must turn your fog-lights off when visibility improves.
Congratulations to Ben Galbraithe on passing his practical driving test. Ben took his driving test at Melton Mowbray driving test centre.
Ben was understandably nervous before his test, but delivered an excellent drive just like he did during his driving lessons. Ben’s friend has been giving him a lift to work every day, now he can return the favour. Ben has a Vauxhall Corsa waiting for him at home. Although, he is a big chap and may have to save up for a nice Mercedes better suited to his size. Ben has previously had driving lessons with other driving schools, but it was our great pleasure to see him through his driving test at his first attempt with Lytes driving School.
We are delighted to see him pass and gain the freedom he so rightly deserves..
Well done Ben from your driving instructor Dave and Lytes Driving School.
