Yes, you will definitely be driving on your first lesson.
If you are new to driving, I will drive you to a suitable location to get you started. It’s vital that your first few lessons are conducted in an area that will ensure your success and build your confidence.
I will take a few minutes to record your licence details, test your eyesight and explain how to adjust your seat, head restraint and make sure you are comfortable.
I will then explain the controls that you will need to operate during your first lesson.
You will then be given a briefing on the move off and stop procedure with a short discussion to ensure you understand what is required.
You will then be given full talk through and will be guided through your practical driving session. You will be able to learn at your own pace and will progress through each topic as and when you feel ready.
I find that, for most pupils, taking a 90-minute or 2- hour lesson every week proves to be the most successful strategy for most students.
90- minute or 2- hour lessons are far more beneficial to you! You will learn far more for your money and you will also be test ready quicker. You will have a decent amount of condensed learning in one go, with time to digest and be focused for your next lesson.
Taking a regular weekly lesson has proven success as it provides continuity, the retention of knowledge, and it will reduce your learning period. We will aim to offer you a regular lesson slot that you can book in advance and keep from the time you commence your lessons until you pass your test.
You will also be able to book more than one lesson slot per week should you wish to reduce your learning period and be test ready sooner (subject to instructor availability).
It really is impossible for me to know until you begin your tuition and we see how you respond.
The DVSA suggest that the average is around 45- 50 hours, but in reality we find that most of our students are test ready sooner than that.
It really does depend on the individual, but my recommendation is to talk more specifically once I have seen you a couple of times.
That is a really good question.
Most people wrongly assume that all driving instructors and schools are the same! We are absolutely not.
I am extremely proud of the quality and the overall unique service that the school provides.
Some schools just offer you the lessons themselves- we provide a complete service including free online theory training, free training book, free dedicated Learn to Drive' app, free additional help for nervous or anxious pupils, and free copies of both the 'Highway Code' and 'Know Your Traffic Signs'.
A number of local schools also price their lessons by 50 minutes, which makes them look A LOT cheaper than us, whereas in reality we are priced really closely.
Yes, I do but it will depend on the circumstances.
I do not pretend to be an expert, or that I possess special training for certain disabilities.
But I do have substantial experience of both living with, and teaching people, who come under the umbrella of the autistic spectrum, have dyslexia/ dyspraxia or other additional needs.
