Your questions answered
How do I sign up?
Simply download the Drivio for Learners App from the AppStore or GooglePlay.
Once downloaded, search your postcode and immediately see available driving instructors without signing up. To book your first lesson you will need to register on the App.
As soon as you’ve signed up we will send you an email and SMS to verify your details. Once confirmed, you can book the lesson with the instructor that suits you.
What areas does Drivio cover?
Drivio can be used anywhere in the UK.
Currently, our network covers every Greater London postcode as well as many others within and around the M25. We have recently expanded up to Leeds.
This means the vast majority of driving instructors operate in these areas.
Can I use Drivio to hire a car for my practical driving test?
Of course! When searching, simply filter for instructors who offer to hire their car for driving tests.
Are the driving instructors on Drivio certified?
At Drivio we take the safety of our learners very seriously. We verify all driving instructors.
As a part of the verification process, driving instructors hold a valid Certificate of Registration as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), and they are registered with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
Can I choose my driving instructor?
Typically driving schools assign you an instructor at random. With Drivio you can book the instructor that most suits your preferences.
When choosing an instructor you can apply the following filters:
To help you make a more informed decision, you can view instructors’ profiles and read ratings and reviews that other learners have given them.
How do I pay for my lessons?
With Drivio you can pay for your lessons easily with your debit or credit card directly via the App. It is the safest way to book lessons as you are covered by the Drivio Cancellation Policy at all times.
We don’t take any money from your account until the instructor confirms your lesson booking. Until then, the money is just pending in your account. Instructors will only be paid for completed lessons.
How do I communicate with my instructors?
Simply message or call your instructor directly from the App. These features are free of charge. Check you have your Drivio App permission enabled to use this service.
By communicating on the App, you will have all your communication history in one place for future reference.
Where do driving lessons take place?
Driving lessons can take place from where it’s most convenient for you. Simply type your postcode or set your location in the Drivio app and see instructors available in your pick-up location.
Each driving instructor covers specific areas so your pick-up and drop-off location should remain the same.
