Driving lessons Derby: Secrets Revealed

Are you looking for driving lessons but you’re unsure of which driving school to go with? Here’s some handy driving lesson advice on how to choose the right driving school, Andy1st driving lessons for you.

Always look for a driving establishment that only uses fully qualified driving instructors. Many large establishments still use trainee driving instructors and they don’t always inform the pupils of the instructors current grade. They even go as far as charging the same rate as a qualified driving instructor. So be sure to ask wherever your instructor is a trainee or fully qualified.

Choose a driving school that has a high first time pass rate. This is no brainer really, but some driving schools may have a pretty site but no actual proof of their success. A pretty looking site is down to their web designer. The content is down to the driving school. So don’t be fooled by the shutter-stock pictures that have been purchased by the web designer and have no personal touch in relation to the website.

Talking about high pass rates, also look out for testimonials. A driving school that has lots of pictures/videos of pupils passing is usually a good sign that they are doing well. A name and date next to a 200 word testimonial is old school and possibly made up.

Ask what training vehicles the driving school you have in mind uses. Most pupils find it easier to learn in a small hatchback diesel vehicle. The benefits of learning in a diesel car is you don’t have to be so sensitive on the clutch and if you forget to press the gas, the car will still pull away without stalling. On the day of your test you are going to be nervous. Some pupils legs and feet even pulsate, having a clutch that is more forgiving could be the difference between you stalling and not stalling on the day of your test.

Always choose a driving school that is local to where you want to learn. Some big driving companies send their driving instructors to 3-4 different test route areas for driving lessons. Do you think it’s possible to specialise in 3 areas that all have 20 test routes? This means your instructor needs to keep up to date with 60+ test routes. That’s not going to happen. So always go for someone who specialises in one area, that way on the day of your driving test you won’t get any surprises seeing roads and junctions you have never seen before.
