When it comes to choosing who you are going to learn to drive with, choosing the right one out of all the available driving instructors can make all the difference.
Learning to drive is an experience you will remember all your life, not just how to drive but who taught you to drive. You will remember it whether the experience was good or bad.
Your connection with your teacher is going to make an impression that lasts, and can make the difference to whether or not you pass your test first time, or later after some attempts. Choosing your instructor based on price is an important consideration, however cheaper is not always cheaper in the long run if you don’t pass your driving test first time. Your instructors ability to connect with you and cater to your individual learning needs will make you a better, more skilled driver.
A good driving instructor is going to be able to help you to not only drive a car but to feel confident and ready when it comes time to take your driving exam. Even the most confident student will still experience some nerves when it comes to the exam. Effective preparation is not just about operating the car and performing the required tasks but also about handling yourself on the road in traffic. Our roads are becoming more and more congested, so it is very important to have a skilled, friendly, relaxed instructor who will help you to feel emotionally confident in every situation as well as handling the added pressure, when it comes time, of an examiner critiquing your every manoeuvre.
Driving lessons and any busy metro area are great when you are learning with someone who can help you to overcome your fears and become a confident provisional driver who is ready for the responsibility of driving without supervision. This may not just be young new drivers, some people may be updating skills, or perhaps you have had your learners for a long time and never quite been ready for the next step. Some people may want to extend their skills to driving a manual car after years on an automatic license. You may even consider the sex of your instructor to be important to helping you feel at ease.
Look for someone who has great testimonials from happy successful students. A reputable school will be accredited by the government and be able to tell you their first time pass rate. Most can offer packages that suit your budget.
