Ruxley Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

So you're ready to take your first Driving Lesson? How are you feeling? Preparing for your very first lesson can be a very daunting thing for some people and then quite the opposite, such an exciting thing for others! But rest assured, there are instructors out there that are trained to help!

Whatever age you learn to drive, the ideal person to teach you however is unlikely to be a friend or relative. This really is one job that is best left to a professional. Not only do you ensure that you are trained to the correct standard and with all the up to date information and guidelines need to pass your test, but you also ensure that you do not put any of your personal relationships, and of course yourself, under any unnecessary stress or pressure.

When learning to drive, it is essential that you have a structured learning programme to follow. Most good driving schools structure their programme according to the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) syllabus. They will normally provide you with help and advice on the theory aspect of the test and will often supply you mock test papers if required.

Of course, it is vital to choose an instructor who is fully trained and licensed with the DSA. They will give you continuous feedback on your progress and guidance on when to apply for your tests. The DSA guide for the average number of driving lessons required by someone to prepare for the practical driving test is one and half hours per year of age. However this can vary according to the individual. Often those with good road sense already progress much quicker as half of the battle is being aware of the hazards of the road and constantly being aware of what is happening round you. On that note, you often find that cyclists and motor-cyclists that are looking to learn already have the basic understanding that they need to develop much more quickly than others... so if you are reading this as a 15 or 16 year old then perhaps taking up cycling or considering a moped when it is legal to do so, would be a worthy exercise if you want to pass your driving test with fewer lessons than average!

Lessons can normally be arranged at a time to suit you with many an instructor offering early morning or late afternoon lessons as well as weekends too so that you can fit in learning to drive around your schedule, family, work or college. Some people prefer a steady approach and take one or two hours' tuition each week, while others prefer an intensive week-long course.

So... are the intensive courses really a good idea?

With time being important to everyone, more and more driving schools are offering intensive driving lessons for learner drivers, some of them spread over just one or two weeks.

But please be aware that this approach to driving lessons doesn't suit everyone. The skills needed to drive safely take time to learn, and although you may learn enough to pass the driving test, you may lack on some of the more general awareness and skill that you need to drive safely. And, its often said that the quicker you learn, the quicker you forget things too!

You may also be the sort of person that strives under pressure and the intensity of a weeks' course could help you, but, if you are quite the opposite and find it hard to focus or concentrate on things during such an intense period, then this approach may not be for you... So give serious consideration to the type of driving lessons that will suit you before booking a black course!

If you have had previous experience on other vehicles, or other driving lessons before, intensive lessons can be useful. As you're not starting from scratch, things may be a little easier. So as mentioned above, for those that have cycled for years or perhaps had a moped or scooter, then this could be a great option for you... and it may even save you money too!

If however you have had no experience on the roads at all, then the best way to learn effectively and safely would be to have 1 or 2 hours a day, a few times a week. On that time scale, you might expect to be ready for your test after 8/10 weeks. But please remember, there is no guarantee as to how long it will take... It really does just depend on the person.

If you have had experience before or perhaps started with lessons previously then the amount of lessons, and therefore the time it will take will vary a lot. This is because every instructor is different and what you have learnt... and hopefully remembered... may be in a very different style or approach to your new instructor. In this instancethe best thing to do would be to book a single lesson or an assessment driving lesson with your new driving instructor, who should then be able to give you a better idea of what you will need and if they can help!

So... you may now be wondering, how many lessons could I need?

This question comes up at some point or another with pretty much everyone who learns to drive. Most people ask it out of financial interest as learning to drive can be expensive, that's why its important to pick the right instructor and approach form the start. Others are just interested to see roughly how long it will be before they can buy their first set of wheels!

According to the Driver Standards Agency, the 'average' driver takes almost 50 hours of lessons with an Instructor with additional hours spent "practising" with a friend or family member.

However some students can pass in as little as 15-20 lessons, while those that have problems or difficulties with certain aspects of the training can increase the number of lessons that they need to over 100. Typical though, the average number you should expect to require between 30-50. But rest assured, the driving instructor will advise you when you are ready.

One thing to remember when learning to drive is that you have two parts to your training now... the theory and the practical. Its worthwhile noting that the sooner you can undertake the theory training and test, the better positioned you will be during your lessons. This is for two reasons.

You will learn the basics of the road, hazard perception, safety and general knowledge to give yourself a head start when you do get behind the wheel.

You can't take your practical test until you have done your theory. So... rather than taking lesson after lesson spending money on lessons, it's well worth getting your theory training and test done as soon as possible, it means you can then put in for your actual test as soon as you are ready rather than having to wait until you pass your theory test and then waiting again until a slot comes about to get your final test booked. So doing you're theory training and test will ensure that you're all set from the start... and it could also save you money too!

Well, hopefully you've found something of use an interest here, thank you for reading, and whatever approach you take, Good Luck with your lessons... And happy motoring!

Things You Need To Start Driving Lessons

One of the most important things that often gets overlooked when new drivers are weighing their driving school options is flexibility. Without a doubt this is one of the most important characteristics of a professional and high quality driving school.

Driving school is just one of many things that people take on in the course of their life. And sometimes scheduling driver training and attending classes can be challenging. Therefore, driving students need to be afforded the flexibility that will allow them to go through driving school in a way that fits into their schedule.

Top schools understand that they need to offer a service that caters to their customers. Here are some things that new drivers need to be looking for when selecting the appropriate school for their specific situation:

Number of courses

Top driving schools offer more than just the core defensive driving certificate program. Look for driving schools that offer additional courses that will meet a wide range of driver's needs. This shows that these schools provide diverse and comprehensive driver training. Look for courses such as refresher programs, winter time driving, advanced certification courses, evaluation and practice courses, as well as programs that cater to business customers.

Course options

Look for schools that offer courses on a regular basis. Great schools frequently start new courses on a regular basis and also offer a condensed version of driver training during the holidays, over March break, and throughout the summer.

Multiple locations

Great schools provide its students with a number of locations for them to do their training. This will ensure that they can take classes that are relatively close to their home or school, making it a convenient way to incorporate driver training into their busy schedule.

Make up classes

Sometimes life just gets in the way. Therefore, good schools will provide their students with options to re take a class if they have to miss a class for a specific reason.

In-car lessons

All in-car lessons will not go as scheduled. Sometimes students will have to cancel or reschedule their lessons and their instructors need to be as accommodating as possible.

Certificate of completion

Driving schools need to provide its students with enough time to complete their in-car lessons. Not all students will be able to complete their driver training in a timely manner. Sometimes things get in the way and driving instructors need to be flexible to accommodate their students.

Payment options

The truth is that some students simply cannot pay for their entire driver training up front. Therefore, students should look for schools that offer their students a number of payment options to ensure they can find a plan that is ideal for their situation.

Driving schools that not only offer top-notch programs but also offer a number of flexible options to its students will be the schools that are preferred by new drivers.

Ruxley Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

The vast majority of the driving instructor industry is driven by recommendation. Many of my colleagues in the local area hardly do any advertising because their reputation is good enough to win them enough business to keep them busy. So if you are looking for a driving instructor and don't know which one to use get some recommendations from friends or relatives. This will give you a good idea which ones are best.

There is a saying that "if you want a job done properly ask a busy man" mainly because, and this is particularly true with driving instructors, there is a reason they are busy. Their service is in demand probably because its high quality. If you call an instructor that has been recommended and they are too busy for you to start immediately DON'T BE PUT OFF. Its easy to ring someone else who is not so busy but this could cost you more money in the long run as the instruction might not be as good.

Let me put it another way, If you were going out for a meal in an unknown restaurant that someone had recommended to you and there was an hour wait for food most people would wait rather than go to the one next door that was empty and full of waiters and waitresses just hanging around. There's a good reason for people not wanting to eat there!

When choosing the person to teach you a life skill such as driving be prepared to wait for the best instructors, it will make you a better driver, you're more likely to pass your test first time and you won't get ripped off. Busy Instructors have no need to drag out the lessons because there are always more people queing up to start once you've passed your test.

TRAINEE or FULLY QUALIFIED.

Don't be afraid to ask if the instructor is a trainee instructor or a fully qualified instructor. Not many people know there is a difference. When training to become an instructor you are allowed to start teaching when you have completed a certain amount of training. You then have 6-12 months to pass the final stage and become fully qualified. Many trainees do not make it past this stage.

How do you tell the difference?

In order to teach people to drive for money instructors have to be registered by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). This is the government organisation that regulates the industry and conducts all driving tests. When an instructor begins teaching they are issued with a certificate that contains their name and photograph as well as an expiry date. This certificate has to be displayed by law on the windscreen of the training vehicle. Trainee badges are Pink in colour and have a big triangle on one side. Fully qualified instructor certificates are Green and have a large hexagon on one side. Be sure to check the details if its an instructor you don't know.

Now I'm not saying that trainee instructors are all bad, I was a trainee myself once, and i employ a couple myself, but they may not have the knowledge of the more experienced fully qualified instructor. Training of instructors is not as strictly controlled as the training of learner drivers and therefore standards of trainees differs hugely. Many of the larger national driving schools that advertise on the TV use a lot of trainees and they are not legally obliged to inform you that this is the case. So check before you book and if you are not happy with having a trainee teach you ask for a fully qualified instructor. If this is not possible look elsewhere.

If you find yourself unhappy with your instructor don't be afraid to discuss the issues with them. Good instructors are open to the fact that they can't please everybody all the time and will be appreciative of your feedback. If you still feel you're not getting the service you're paying for move instructors. It may be a bit of an issue in the short term but in the long term you could find yourself saving money. If you don't enjoy the lessons then you won't learn anything which is a waste of money!

Illegal driving Instructors

There are a number of people in the UK who operate illegally (unqualified people teaching for financial reward). Anybody can get a set of dual controls a roof sign and some training materials. Since 2007 all newly qualified instructors undergo an enhanced CRB check. Illegal instructors won't have this. Some instructors who don't pass the final examinations carry on instructing illegally. Usually they will be friendly, courteous, try to befriend you so that you won't ask questions. They will usually also charge a lot less than a professional (see my other blog on cheap driving lessons). Make sure you see their certificate, make sure it hasn't expired, and check the name photo's and dates all match up. If you have doubts walk away as you could also be liable for aiding and abetting an offender.

Gareth Price is a successful DSA approved driving instructor and a member of the Institute of advanced motorists. Having built up his own successful driving school business he has recently turned his attentiion to showing people how they can learn to drive for less using private driving practice.

Here you can sign up for the information for free. Even if you are wary of teaching someone to drive it'll cost you nothing to find out how to do it before you make a decision.
