Writing a Formal Letter

Write a letter of enquiry about obtaining a driving licence.

Exam in Mind Level B1/B2

Imagine you want to get a driving licence and you need to write a letter to the driving school manager. In your text:

  • give the reason for your writing
  • ask for detailed information about the course of driving
  • ask how you can join the course.

Hi there! I’m Dasha and here is my letter of enquiry.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inquire about joining the driving course at your driving school. I have read many positive reviews about your school, and I believe it is the right decision to choose your school to obtain a driving licence.

I am planning to acquire a driving licence as it is a valuable life skill. Recently, I turned 18 years old, so I am officially eligible to study at your school.

There are some details about the driving course that are not clear to me, and I would be grateful if you could provide me with further information. I would like to know the duration and cost of the course. As a university student, I am interested in studying in the afternoon, so I would like to know if that is possible. Additionally, I would like to know how many attempts I have to pass the driving exam.

I would also appreciate it if you could inform me about the steps to join the driving course and what documents are required to enroll in the driving school.

I would be thankful if you could answer my questions. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Anna Wilson
