North Cheam Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

Recently I've been seeing more and more new driving schools appear in my area advertising cheap driving lessons with a variety of special deals. Offers such as '10 lessons for £99', '5 hours for £55' and '4 hours for £44' are appearing with increasing regularity. But is the customer really getting value for money? Personally I know that I could never operate my business offering such deals - it would barely cover my overheads - and I wouldn't want my business associated with anything 'cheap' anyway - so how are other driving schools achieving it?

Are you getting value for money?

Now I obviously can't speak about every driving school out there offering these deals but from the many stories I've heard the general answer is NO for a variety of reasons:

Sitting on the side of the road for most of the lesson. I often hear tales from pupils who have come to me from other driving schools that they would spend most of their lessons parked up in the car going over theory rather than getting in valuable practical work. This is a way that driving schools can cut costs - less fuel used and less wear and tear on their car. I once heard a story that a driving school in the area carried out a 2 hour highway code lesson with their pupils!

Tying on from the first point, less practical work on lessons is going to result in a decreased progress in the pupils driving skills. If you're sitting about for half of every lesson not actually driving then it's going to take you twice as long to get to test standard. So that '10 lessons for £99' deal looks good on the surface, but if it's going to take you double the lessons it would at a established and reputable driving school is it really a decent saving?

The initial offer will only be a one off and can include some terms and conditions. Once you've had your deal, the lesson price will go back to the driving school's standard prices. The terms and conditions on a '10 hours for £99' for example can typically be something like 3 hours to be held back for test day lesson. That would tie you to the driving school - you get your first 7 hours and then MUST stay with the driving school until your test to get the other 3 hours - something you might not want to do if you're not happy with the instruction being given to you.

So let's do a case study. John decides he wants some good quality driving lessons with a company that have good customer testimonials and some great recommendations. They charge £210 for 10 hours with the first hour free so the pupil can meet the instructor before making any further commitments. Typically this driving school will have a pupil ready for test at around 30 hours - therefore John will spend a total of £630 to pass his test.

James decides he wants to go for cheap driving lessons. He finds a random company online doing a '10 hours for £99' deal. However, due to the driving schools ways of cutting costs it takes James 50 hours to pass. The final 40 hours were also at the standard price of £200 for 10 hours. Also James wasn't particularly happy with his instructor but 3 hours was reserved for his test day so he didn't want to lose that. In total James had to pay £899 compared to John who paid £630. Also John managed it in around 4 months compared to James who took 7 months due to the extra lessons.

These cheap deals can look too good to be true and often are so beware. I think it's much better to choose a school on reputation, testimonials and recommendations rather than price - there's probably a good reason why one school can charge a lot more than another - you generally get what you pay for in this life!!

Rosehill Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

For many people, learning to drive is a key skill in life to master. This might be because they're under financial pressure to find work, or provide transport for nearest and dearest.

Or perhaps a house move is on the cards, and a new home doesn't have good links to public transport. Or simply because being able to drive yourself around as you please is something to add to quality of life.

Whatever your reason for learning to drive, chances are you want to do it as quickly and cheaply as possible. But while you're researching cheap driving lessons, have a think about whether it'd also suit you to learn to drive in an automatic car.

Automatic driving lessons can be by far the quickest and easiest way to shed your L-plates.

People suited to automatic cars

For some drivers, there's a definite reason why they choose automatic over manual. These include:

If they have a certain disability and don't have enough strength or dexterity to drive a manual. If they have an urgent need to shed their L-plates. If they've tried repeatedly to pass their test in a manual car but have failed. If they know they have access to an automatic car they can drive after they've passed their test.

Why are automatic driving lessons popular?

There are a few reasons why some people drive an automatic car rather than a manual car. For one, you needn't learn how to master clutch control and get gear changes up to scratch. There's also no way you'll stall a car.

There are other reasons many favour this type of car. If you're planning to drive in a big, busy city, you might also find that automatic driving lessons suit as it's easier to master frequent stop-starts. Or if you live in a hilly area you'll find it simpler to control an automatic car than a manual.

Because generally there are less skills to master when you're learning to drive an automatic car, that cuts down on the amount of driving lessons you need. Want to save even more money and find super cheap driving lessons? Consider taking intensive driving courses in manual driving.

Finding a decent driving instructor

Of course, only part of the story is deciding which type of car you're doing to be learning in. Almost as important is your choice of driving instructor.

Learning to drive can be a personal, overwhelming thing. That's why it's crucial that you find a good driving instructor who knows the best way to make you feel comfortable behind the wheel.

If an instructor offers cheap driving lessons as well as advanced driving course, that can be a great way to lower your insurance costs in the long run. This is because generally speaking, people who've done extra tuition are usually safer drivers.

So although that might seem like an unnecessary outlay, it can actually save you money in the long run. With the price of fuel increasing year by year, this might be a great idea if you're on a budget.

Advanced Driving School

Choosing the right driving instructor is important and can sometimes be a bit of a minefield.

Prospective pupils must obviously ensure that they like the instructor and that the instructor has the right personal qualities for them - for example, nervous drivers are unlikely to do well with an impatient or terse instructor.

Beyond that, however, pupils need to be aware of all the little - but important - factors that can make such a difference to how many driving lessons are required to pass a test and hence the total cost of the driving lessons. A few points to check before booking driving lessons are:

1. What percentage of a typical lesson is spent sitting in a stationary car learning theory? If 20 minutes out of each hour is spent in stationary learning, then this obviously reduces the practical driving experience gained.

2. How long does each driving lesson last? Some instructors reduce lesson times to 50 minutes to increase their earning power - learners should be aware of this practice when comparing the cost of lessons between different driving schools. At the other extreme, learners should be wary of booking a three hour lesson if they are only able to concentrate effectively for 60-90 minutes at a time - once concentration goes, the ability to learn decreases and the money is wasted. This last point is particularly important for those considering an intensive course of lessons (a semi-intensive course where pupils have daily or twice daily lessons often works better).

3. Where do driving lessons start and end? If the pupil lives in the country, a large portion of each lesson could be spent on quiet rural roads rather than on mastering the skills needed to drive in a busy town or city centre.

4. What type of car does the driving instructor use? Is it manual or automatic and how easy is it to manoeuvre? Light, sensitive cars can make manoeuvres easier and so reduce the number of driving lessons needed. Obviously, cars with dual-controls provide a necessary safety net when people first start learning.

5. Will the driving instructor follow the same routes each week or will they keep detailed lesson plans for each student so that they ensure that students have the opportunity to follow different roads each week?

6. Does the driving instructor have a thorough knowledge of the local test routes and do they incorporate these routes into each lesson?

7. Does the instructor incorporate all the types of driving (for example, town centre driving, rural driving and dual-carriage-way driving) that the driving test will cover into each lesson?

Cheap Driving Lessons Are You Really Getting Value for Money

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!

South Beddington Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

So much to talk for, so less to write; as it has been a debate whether it is the driving institutes that matter the most or is it the driving instructors. A very simple conclusion could very well be the fact that the reputations of driving schools are actually run by the efficiency of the driving instructors. And that driving instructors are after all nothing but employees of the driving schools. The best point that comes in to play is that they are both complementing each other and that no one has ascendancy over the other. After all, it is all about keeping the driving instructors motivated enough to love their job and perform it with the best of their ability. But once again, pure efficiency of the driving institutes lies in the hands of the driving instructors so it is basically a two-way process.

When talking to a number of individuals who have been associated with the driving institutes in the UK either as part of the administration, as driving instructors or as students; All have been of opinions differentiating from each other. Many simply said that it's the reputation of the driving institutes rather than that of the driving instructors since the driving instructors are known and recognized by the driving schools only. But a few students also explained as to why they often switch from one driving school to another and that is simply because the instructor they are comfortable with switches jobs. This once again leaves us to the confusion whether it is the driving schools or the instructors for driving that matter the most.

Driving in the UK is different as compared to any other country. Driving institutes often add values such as discounts and change of routes and timing convenience in order to pull more and more customers towards their portfolio. Many driving schools also offer experienced and well-known driving instructors as part of their staff in order to attract through the goodwill of the driving instructors. This now has a contrary effect on the previously mentioned discussion and it is evident that driving institutes benefit a great deal from the instructors as well.

Much said, driving institutes also offer a great deal of challenging drills when it comes to making the pupil perfect in the art. Such kind of diversity in offerings is what you usually find financial institutes and banks do and even with the fast moving consumer goods industry. Instructors for Driving are definitely a source of due attraction that eventually lead to such institutes being more and more evidently efficient in their offerings.

Since the discussion of whether driving institutes draw more customers towards the business or it is the instructors that do so would continue for a long time to come; the job that is on hand is of great importance. The best driving schools are those that apply a mix of both in the offerings and prepare a detailed sketch of all that they are supposed to deliver.

The best in the business as per my analysis has been London School. Whether it is the variance in packages that they offer or it is the nature of driving instructors, the Driving School has been the best in the business. Log onto Driving schools Croydon and get yourself registered with the most effective and affordable driving school in the UK.

5 Things to Do Before Booking Your Driving Lessons

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.

Sutton Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

Many people think that choosing a driving instructor is easy but making the right choice when deciding on an instructor is one of the most important stages of learning to drive. There are a lot of things you have to think about when choosing the right instructor and hopefully this article will point you in the right direction. Here are our top tips to picking the correct driving instructor:

1. Ensure your driving instructor is fully qualified.

Before you start your first driving lesson with your instructor make sure that they are a fully approved driving instructor, also known as an ADI. To check that your instructor is fully qualified, have a quick look in the front windscreen of their car, if there's a green badge then they are fully qualified. If there isn't a green badge in the windscreen just simply ask them to show it to you. If when you look in the instructor's windscreen there is a pink badge this means that the instructor is only a trainee.

2. Ensure your driving instructor has a good pass rate.

Before learning to drive, ask your instructor what his/her pass rate is. This will give you indications of how successful past students have been with this driving instructor. The current national average for students successfully passing their driving test is 42%, so ensure your driving instructors pass rate reflects this.

3. Use personal recommendations.

Most people have positive experiences when learning to drive if they have been recommended a driving instructor by a friend or family member. When thinking about commencing your driving lessons ask your close friends and family members if they know of an instructor they would recommend.

4. Ask your driving instructor what grade they are.

When a driving instructor becomes qualified they must pass three-part examination to qualify, they have to reach and maintain high standards set by the Driving Standards Agency. Once they qualify they are given a grade based on their driving examination, if they have been given a grade 4 this means they are operating at a competent level. A grade 5 indicates that they are of a good standard and a grade 6 which is held by less than 10% of the country indicates that they are of a very high standard.

5. Make sure you shop around.

When you are looking to start your driving lessons, don't just choose the first instructor you set your eyes on. Make sure you shop around and have a good look at other instructors and schools in your area to make sure you make the right choice. Remember that you only plan to learn to drive once.

6. Make sure you have thought about any special preferences.

If you have any special preferences with regards to your driving lessons ensure you have thought about them before commencing lessons with an instructor or driving school, for example some females wish to have female only instructors.

7. Read Reviews.

Most people are unaware that you can read reviews on specific driving instructors or driving schools online. Do a quick Google search for your possible instructor or school and see what appears, some websites such as Google maps for example do offer the chance for students to write reviews on their instructors. Once you have passed your test ensure that you leave your instructor or driving school a review to ensure the next student has a good understanding of the instructor and what they are like.

8. Don't forget your theory test.

People often forget about the theory test before commencing their practical driving lessons, the fact of the matter is that if you learn your theory while learning to drive it makes it that much easier. So if you have not yet passed your theory test and intend to do so while conducting your practical driving lessons ask your driving instructor or driving school if they offer assistance.

9. Remember you are paying for a service.

If for whatever reason you have started driving lessons with an instructor then decide you wish to change instructor, it is in your rights to be able to do so.

10. Ask important questions.

Finally before your driving lessons commence even if you believe you have found your ideal instructor ask important questions, to ensure you know the ins and outs such as:

-How much notice do I need to give before cancelling a lesson? -What make/model of car do you use on your lessons? -Do you work weekends? -Can I picked up and dropped off in different locations? -Which test centre do you use? -How much do you charge?

By asking these questions you can put your mind at ease and enjoy your driving lessons.

Choosing your driving school or instructor is a tough decision and you shouldn't take it lightly, but hopefully these ten tips will set you on the right path to learning to drive! http://www.drivingschool-croydon.co.uk

Automatic Driving Lessons Whats In Store For Aspiring Motorists

Driving schools are becoming more popular by the day. Everybody wants to know more and more about them. This includes young people who can't wait for the opportunity to take the wheel in their hands, and also the concerned parents looking for a good school to send their kids. Gone are the days when fathers used to take their kids out of the city to teach them how to drive. Blame it on the constraint of time and their working hours which do not permit them to do it. Now though, thanks to the number of driving schools around, their worries can be put to rest. Driving schools can help young drivers become more aware of proper driving techniques and etiquette.

Driving schools are very reliable:

Driving schools take care of almost everything that has to deal with driving; from teaching the students about driving different cars, to teaching about the engines and also about defensive driving. The good thing about joining a driving school is that by attending at a qualified driving school you can actually reduce the tickets and fines you get, and you may even lower your auto insurance premiums. But the question is how to find a qualified or a good driving school? Keep in mind that the best driving school can be the one that has been recommended to you by a friend or relative. You can also rely on your local auto insurance dealer or contact the public safety office in your state.

Driving Schools or the Driving Instructors

Choosing the correct driving school shouldn't be difficult or super expensive, that's why there is cheap driving institutions that can assure you can get your license as fast as possible.

While searching the right driving lesson, there's a couple things that you'll need to look for before purchasing your class. To start, double check that the school is insured and licensed to teach. It is crucially important to find an instructor that is currently licensed and registered to better so that they're definitely up to date with the most current state driving laws and rules. That's not only for licensing reasons, only licensed individuals are able to accept cash for driving help. Knowing how to drive doesn't mean anything special, it does not mean that they are in a place to give driving lessons.

The single best way to choosing the best school is picking up the phone and call them. Be attentive and ask questions regarding when they teach you, the duration provided with every instruction and if you can drive near the DSA. At times you will come across a driving school that knows the driving roads that all DSA instructors use to give the actual driving test. Also make sure to ask prequalifying questions like how long have they taught, and how long the driving school has been in business. Be sure to ask about their personality to make sure that you or your kid will be in good hands.

Next talk about when they are free for the lessons or driving school. Most schools offer both night and day schools. Having a class at both day and night can assure you will be prepared to combat just about all driving conditions. Some schools are not comfortable with teach in bad weather situations, although some will. Try and figure out the schools cancellation policy regarding poor weather and what they determine poor weather, some schools will teach rain or shine.

We typically suggest driving under these conditions with a family member or driving mentor as it's usually much more painless for the learning driver. Just driving by some familiar streets or roads, you may want to learn how to drive in bad conditions by going to a malls parking lot.

It's best to not accept invitations to become a qualified driver by being taught by a relative for family member. Driving lessons and schools are licensed persons that are best suited to make sure you understand the rules of your town. Overall this will help you beat your license and driving tests, most cities require prior examples of driving instruction with an approved instructor.

Looking for the right driving school can be tough, finding the right cheap driving school can be even harder. Check out our list of professional driving schools and we'll help you find the right school for your needs.

Top Ten Tips Make Sure You Pick the Correct Driving Instructor

Many people think that choosing a driving instructor is easy but making the right choice when deciding on an instructor is one of the most important stages of learning to drive. There are a lot of things you have to think about when choosing the right instructor and hopefully this article will point you in the right direction. Here are our top tips to picking the correct driving instructor:

1. Ensure your driving instructor is fully qualified.

Before you start your first driving lesson with your instructor make sure that they are a fully approved driving instructor, also known as an ADI. To check that your instructor is fully qualified, have a quick look in the front windscreen of their car, if there's a green badge then they are fully qualified. If there isn't a green badge in the windscreen just simply ask them to show it to you. If when you look in the instructor's windscreen there is a pink badge this means that the instructor is only a trainee.

2. Ensure your driving instructor has a good pass rate.

Before learning to drive, ask your instructor what his/her pass rate is. This will give you indications of how successful past students have been with this driving instructor. The current national average for students successfully passing their driving test is 42%, so ensure your driving instructors pass rate reflects this.

3. Use personal recommendations.

Most people have positive experiences when learning to drive if they have been recommended a driving instructor by a friend or family member. When thinking about commencing your driving lessons ask your close friends and family members if they know of an instructor they would recommend.

4. Ask your driving instructor what grade they are.

When a driving instructor becomes qualified they must pass three-part examination to qualify, they have to reach and maintain high standards set by the Driving Standards Agency. Once they qualify they are given a grade based on their driving examination, if they have been given a grade 4 this means they are operating at a competent level. A grade 5 indicates that they are of a good standard and a grade 6 which is held by less than 10% of the country indicates that they are of a very high standard.

5. Make sure you shop around.

When you are looking to start your driving lessons, don't just choose the first instructor you set your eyes on. Make sure you shop around and have a good look at other instructors and schools in your area to make sure you make the right choice. Remember that you only plan to learn to drive once.

6. Make sure you have thought about any special preferences.

If you have any special preferences with regards to your driving lessons ensure you have thought about them before commencing lessons with an instructor or driving school, for example some females wish to have female only instructors.

7. Read Reviews.

Most people are unaware that you can read reviews on specific driving instructors or driving schools online. Do a quick Google search for your possible instructor or school and see what appears, some websites such as Google maps for example do offer the chance for students to write reviews on their instructors. Once you have passed your test ensure that you leave your instructor or driving school a review to ensure the next student has a good understanding of the instructor and what they are like.

8. Don't forget your theory test.

People often forget about the theory test before commencing their practical driving lessons, the fact of the matter is that if you learn your theory while learning to drive it makes it that much easier. So if you have not yet passed your theory test and intend to do so while conducting your practical driving lessons ask your driving instructor or driving school if they offer assistance.

9. Remember you are paying for a service.

If for whatever reason you have started driving lessons with an instructor then decide you wish to change instructor, it is in your rights to be able to do so.

10. Ask important questions.

Finally before your driving lessons commence even if you believe you have found your ideal instructor ask important questions, to ensure you know the ins and outs such as:

-How much notice do I need to give before cancelling a lesson? -What make/model of car do you use on your lessons? -Do you work weekends? -Can I picked up and dropped off in different locations? -Which test centre do you use? -How much do you charge?

By asking these questions you can put your mind at ease and enjoy your driving lessons.

Choosing your driving school or instructor is a tough decision and you shouldn't take it lightly, but hopefully these ten tips will set you on the right path to learning to drive! http://www.drivingschool-croydon.co.uk
