Downham 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.

Pass Promise

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!

Downham Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

WARNING: YOU COULD BE OUT OF POCKET BY - £500 IF YOU USE THE WRONG DRIVING SCHOOL Use this guide to help you save time and money learning how to drive and passing your test first time…

It is hard to find the right driving school in Croydon, yes there are lots of schools offering driving lessons in Croydon, but how can you tell which schools to avoid and who to choose for you? Most people enquiring about lessons will ask these questions

1. What do you charge? 2. What are your pass rates? 3. How many lessons will I need?

But those questions do not give you the right answers. The questions in your head are. Will I get ripped off? Can I trust them? Will they help me in the best way possible?

And rightly so. You are well within your rights to be thinking of those questions, but it’s not exactly if you can just say “are you going to rip me off?” It doesn’t work like that does it?

The answer though to finding out if the driving instructor in Croydon is right for you are within these following points.

1. Ask the school if the instructor is a trainee or fully qualified. There is nothing wrong with a trainee, but you need to know and you may expect the price to reflect their level of experience.

2. Each driving instructor receives a grade of either A, B or fail. Around 25% of driving instructors are a grade A. If the driving instructor received a fail, they can still give tuition for a short period of time.

3. Ask when they were last graded. It is called a Standards Check.

4. Also ask about any additional training they have taken since their Standards Check to maintain and improve their services to you.

5. Finally, this is not a question to ask but an observation to make. The driving test is not totally comprehensive, it does not cover driving at night, in poor weather or on motorways. So the thing to look for is if the driving school in Croydon offers a Pass Plus Course, Motorway Lessons or Advanced driver training.

If the school does not offer these extended lesson you have got to think why? Surely the driving school wants you to be safe? Yes it is your choice to take these extended lessons, but you have got to ask yourself, if they are not offered on the website, is this school the right one for you?

How to make sure you can save £500 or more on passing your driving test.

Some people will search for cheap driving lessons in Croydon and while plenty of people don’t, we all want a good deal – right? We want good service and to be able to pass the driving test without needing to take too many driving lessons – agreed?

To our knowledge there is no other driving school in Croydon who shares these inside secrets with their learners, so take a serious look at this…

Just by structuring your driving lessons in a certain way, you can instantly start to help saving cash. This has nothing to do with your ability or the skills of the instructor, it’s all about when and how long you take your driving lessons.

Here is an example. You have two people, Simon and David and they both book 10 hours of lessons, Simon takes one hour a week, David takes a lesson every 3 to 4 days and his lessons are 2 hours long. Who learns more?

Of course you know the answer, its David. On every lesson Simon has got to think back a whole week to what he learned and just like learning to play the guitar you need frequent practice or its going to takes ages.

Now we think Simon is adding around 10 hours to his training, because if he just has a 15 minute recap on each lesson, every 4 lessons means one is wasted, and on average it takes 47 hours to pass. Perhaps he could be wasting closer to 12 hours, and that the best part of £300 down the drain.

How To Save Another £300 If you follow the example of David he is not going to require private practice, he has enough training each week. To insure a family car and to fuel it, you can easily spend £30 a week, now over just a 3 month period that comes to well over £300 and closer to £400.

How to passing your driving test first time and save another £300

Every learner wants to pass their driving test first time, it’s not just the money but also the achievement. However there is a strategy you must apply, because 50% of tests end in a failure and you want to avoid that.

The story begins with not the first driving lesson, but actually the driving examiner and what they are looking for on your driving test. It is there responsibility to make sure you are a safe driver, that’s the clue. What defines a safe driver?

1. To follow the Highway Code 2. To be in control of the car at all times 3. To spot hazards and avoid them 4. To want to drive as a safe person would

…and that’s it! Just those 4 little points is what the driving examiner is looking for, so the strategy is clear, you are going to use these 4 steps on every single driving lesson. Which will mean not only will you be fully prepared and confident for the driving test but also, you will be able to pick up on your own faults and rectify them!

So where does the £300 saving come into play? Well passing first time means no 2nd test, and extra lessons! To doubly make sure you have what it take to cruise through your driving test we take extra steps.

Things You Need To Start Driving Lessons

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?
