Honor Oak 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!!

Cheap Driving School How to Choose the Right School

Automatic driving lessons are one of the options an aspiring motorist can take to get him started. But it is usually more expensive than its manual counterpart. That is because automatic transmission cars use more fuel than manual ones. On top of that, it gets fewer requests. However, they are known to be more convenient and less demanding. Usually, when driving, majority of the time you spend driving is designated to controlling the car. As such, manual driving lessons are more concentrated on refining a student's orientation to the gears and clutch operation. Automatic transmission unburdens people of that concern. Hence, they learn faster how to maneuver their vehicles and become qualified for testing at a much quicker pace.

Aside from that, automatic driving lessons also have the added advantage of being more enjoyable. Since students are spared from the humiliating dilemma of getting stalled in the middle of the street or not being able to move the clutch correctly, they feel more confident and relaxed every session. This leads to a better performance, which all instructors aspire to cultivate. It also doesn't hurt that automatic driving courses are easier and less difficult to remember than manual. Put them together and the pupil is assured of passing the licensure exam.

But then again, there are some downsides to the curriculum. See, even though a lot of cars today come in automatic transmission, majority of those being retailed are still manual. This means you have a limited option as far as what you drive goes. This can prove quite a hassle when you travel, rent cars or when you find yourself broken down in the middle of the road. In the United States, an automatic driving license is not applicable to manual vehicles. So even if in time you pick up the skill, you will still be liable to the courts once you are found using the wrong license. If you want flexibility, you will have to retake the test for manual driving.

Moreover, automatic transmission vehicles are known to be more expensive than manual prototypes. Add that to the fact that they consume more fuel, you can assume with certainty that you'll be spending more for use and maintenance when you settle with this option. As a final disadvantage, automatic driving lessons may not fully prepare you for the challenges as well as the demands of driving. Part of the learning process in the manual training is learning control. That is not something emphasized in an automatic course. And therefore, you may be prone to road abuse than other motorists.

Nevertheless, you can still come out of it competent and ready. After all, automatic and manual driving lessons both pay attention to the same road conduct and driving laws. And they essentially produce the same results. So ultimately, everything boils down to preference and willingness. Being an automatic transmission driver is not an achievement you can underplay or disregard when it comes to the highway.

If you had an accident, you can be ordered to have crash course driving lessons. Although most people take them because they want to hurry up and get their driving license. Some people do take them for the enjoyment of it.

These courses are not advisable for the teenager who does not want to wait any longer than they have to, before they get their license. Teens will not learn driving safety in a crash course.

Even though learning to drive takes some time and practice, you will find the instructor that will give you crash course driving lessons. If for some logical reason you need to have your license in a hurry be sure to find an instructor that knows what he or she is doing and has been driving for a good amount of time.

If you are able to find an excellent teacher, they will be able to teach you everything that you need to know in a short amount of time. He or she has probably had their driving instructor jobs for a long time and is ready to give you all the safety information that you should have before you get your license.

If you do decide to take crash course driving lessons you will be given a set amount of time to learn what you need to know. When that time is up if you do not pass your test, you will have to try again.

You might feel great getting your license quicker than other people your age, but you will not learn as much as the people who decided to take their time learned. Being a good, safe driver takes time, not crash course driving lessons.

Any experienced driver will tell you that they are constantly learning new things about driving safely all the time. Sometimes, it will be a new way to avoid an accident, or maybe you could have learned how to drive in the snow. You can miss many good tips if you learn to drive by crash course driving lessons.

You might have to take crash course driving lessons if you were involved in a collision where someone was hurt, or even for a moving violation. Try to use this time to learn how to avoid another accident and to brush up on the driving skills that you already have.

You need to plan ahead when you're thinking of taking your driving lessons in Sheffield or elsewhere in the UK.

Planning is an essential part of your driving process and there are a number of tasks that need to be completed before you book your driving lessons.

The first thing you need to think about before booking your lessons is how you will fund them. Most people save up months before taking lessons and this is something you need to think about before you start. Some are lucky and their driving lessons are funded by their parents as a birthday present. Another way to fund them would be to take out a loan, although we strongly recommend avoiding this as much as possible because no debt is good debt.

The next thing you need to do before booking your driving lessons is to get your provisional driving licence because you can't start your driving tuition without it. Your instructor will ask to see this on your first lesson and if you haven't got it then they won't take you out on the road because it's a legal requirement that you have one. It is very simple to apply for a provisional licence, driving lessons do it now and get ahead with booking your driving lessons.

The next stage in booking your lessons is looking around for the right driving school. There are different ways in which you can find driving schools in your area. Firstly you can look on search engines such as Google driving lessons. Most schools have a website with all the information you will need. Other means of finding the right school for you would be the yellow pages. This would involve you ringing them up to find out details and is not as informative as the internet, however, it's still useful.

After finding your driving school check that you will get good lessons from them; it 's important to find out if you will get a good service and you can do this by reading reviews and testimonials that ex-pupils have left about the school you're thinking of booking with. This is a great insight to how any business runs because it's pupils first-hand experience with that school.

The final stage to booking your driving lessons after finding the right driving school is to get on with your driving tuition! Start revising for your theory test as soon as possible because it will help you both on the road and it will speed up your learning. Pass your theory test as soon as possible so it doesn't hold you back when booking your practical driving test.
