Midrive is UK startup offering a comprehensive toolkit to help learner drivers improve their knowledge and driving skills to give them the best chances to pass the driving test. It includes a free mobile app, access to supporting web resources and a data-base of top-rated, fully certified instructors in your area. MiDrive can also track your driving lessons’ route and car speed using your iPhone’s GPS connection.
Launched in 2013, MiDrive has helped so far 300,000 learners to accelerate their learning process and get confidence in their driving skills. The results are proven with a majority of Midrive learners passing their exam first time after an average of only 30 hours of lessons, much fewer hours than the national average. It takes less time and a cheaper budget to learner drives to swap their L-plate for a P-plate. Midrive is a new, affordable way to learn to drive better and safer for everyone.
How does it work:
First download the free Midrive Learner App available on both App store and Google Play, you will get access to a library of information and tips you need to be ready to pass the practical test: weekly tips based on your progressions, track your lessons and get direct feedback from the instructor.
If you haven’t already passed your driving theory test, Theory Test by Midrive is their other App available for free on which with you can practice all aspects of the UK test such as hazard spotting, road signs reading and challenge others.
Midrive put you in contact with a local experienced driving instructor who are all DBS security vetted. The company lists fully qualified ADI in all London and all major UK cities, so you just have to enter your postcode and details on the website or on the App to find local instructors. Midrive will match a trusted instructor within a day, then you can pay and schedule your driving lesson hours via the App. In case you prefer to change instructor, they will rematch you for free. Based on the manoeuvres you have practiced with your instructor and his feedback, Midrive will tell you how close you are to be able to sit for the driving exam in confidence.
