Blackheath 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.

What You Should Know About Crash Course Driving Lessons

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.

Blackheath Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

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.

5 Things to Do Before Booking Your Driving Lessons

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!!
