West Dulwich 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.

Pros and Cons of Automatic Driving Lessons

Before going on your first driving lesson you need a number of things to start. These things are essential and without them you won't be successful in starting your driving tuition.

First your provisional driving licence. No qualified instructor should take a pupil on their first lesson until they see a provisional licence, as it is an essential document you need to be road legal. It is very easy to apply for your provisional but it can take up to two weeks to arrive so make sure you send it off well in advance to starting. You will also need it for your driving theory test, and the practical test so it is an essential document to have when learning how to drive. Being prepared and knowing you need a provisional before you book your driving lessons is important and without this knowledge you will be held back from continuing.

This may be stating the obvious but you need money to start your driving lessons. If you are paying as you go for your lessons then each one you go on you must take the money for that lesson. Some companies do offer block bookings, in which case you will pay for a block of lessons in advance, which may suit some better if you don't always have the cash with you.

You don't need to get your own insurance or pay for fuel as this is included in the lesson price. On your driving tuition you are covered under your instructor's insurance, therefore there is no need for you to get your own.

As well as the right physical objects you need to start your lessons, you also need certain mental attributes, such as the intention to continue. If you have no intention to continue to take driving lessons it's a waste of your time and money starting. Pupils start with good intentions but if they are not 100% committed it is a waste of their time and money even starting.

You also need the time to be taking driving lessons. If you have a busy schedule and don't have much spare time then it is probably better you not starting, as you will start cancelling your lessons, and again, wasting your money!

Pick a time in your life when you have at least a couple of hours a week spare guaranteed, and start then.

This is all you need to start your driving lessons! It is a very simple process to start, you just need the right information. Direct Drive are helping pupils pass their test on a daily basis. Taking driving lessons with Direct Drive will make sure that you pass your driving test and become a safe driver in Croydon

West Dulwich Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

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.

Driving School Learn How to Drive

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.
