Norwood Driving Lessons Choosing the Right Instructor

Some Advice when searching for your Driving Instructor - Please remember that often paying less you will get less

I have detailed here what I feel are the top ten qualities your Driving Instructor should demonstrate so as to ensure that your Driving Lessons are a success.

1. Patience: - I think that it is imperative that your instructor is patient with you, you will need somebody that can put up with the mistakes that you will inevitably make whilst learning to drive.

2. Reliability: - Please note that your Instructor is not your friend. You should expect your instructor to arrive on time, in a suitable vehicle and in a reasonable frame of mind for your lesson.

3. Punctuality: - is a very important quality for your instructor to have, of course you want a full Driving Lesson. It is very frustrating if your instructor constantly arrives late for your lessons. (I experienced this first hand many years ago)

4. Honesty: - Naturally you will want to save some money so you will in some cases pay for lessons in advance. You must be able to trust your instructor to deliver those lessons once you have paid for them.

5. Opinionated: - Dictionary definition is being, 'obstinate, fixed in your opinions'. This is clearly a positive type of character for an approved Driving Instructor. There is no value to having an instructor who changes their mind all the time and at the end of each lesson when you are being given the low-down on your mistakes in that lesson by your instructor, you need to have open and honest feedback as to what your stronger areas skills are and where you make your worst errors. These lessons are not a democracy. You are here to learn to drive.

6. Diplomacy: - It is important that your Instructor offers you a good balance during your lessons; if they continually upset you during the course of your tuition you will feel unhappy and frustrated. You should have positive reinforcement and encouragement throughout you course of your lessons with them.

7. Studiousness: - A good teacher is always on the lookout for ways to improve their own performance. Including; better or just different ways to explain things to you by way of totally new approaches to age old problems. This is an evolving subject area where you and your Driving Instructor will learn some things together.

8. Restraint: - Your Driving Instructor has to demonstrate this. You are young and clever and your Driving Instructor knows nothing, you know more than he or she. Your Driving Instructors opinions on things other than your Driving Lessons and you learning to Drive, do not matter

9. Self control: - Your instructor has dual controls, they should not keep their feet twitching above them all the time as this will unsettle you and make you feel that you are having wasted Driving Lesson. Caution is good but they should not overdo it.

10. Discipline: - Your Driving Instructor should demonstrate a level of personal discipline in making certain that they and the car are always ready for your Driving Lessons. They should show professional discipline by making sure that they always give you the best quality Driving Instruction they can give you even when they don't feel like it no matter how good the reason. You have after all paid a lot of money for these lessons.

The Need for Driving School Flexibility

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.
