We try to make lessons as enjoyable as possible whilst focusing on DSA approved techniques to get the most progress out of your learning. It's really important that not only are you being taught in the correct manner and with the correct methods but that you're comfortable and relaxed during your lessons. We know you'll be nervous, not just on your first lesson but also subsequent lessons, and so we'll do our best to relieve any stress that you may feel!
The First Lesson
On your first lesson, we'll first give you some info on the theory and practical tests before checking your provisional licence and performing an eyesight check. Then we'll give you an explanation of the various controls and vehicle checks that you'll need to perform before setting off. Once we've talked you through that, we'll spend a short time explaining how to move off and stop, focusing on observations and control. Then you're ready to go - we'll take things slowly initially and progress through the lesson onto gear changing and turning into junctions.
We don't believe in aimless driving - something we hear far to often from pupils at various other driving schools is that they're not focusing on any one skill in particular and so progress is painfully slow. What we aim to do is cover a new skill each lesson, whilst practicing and reinforcing skills learnt on earlier lessons.
We pride ourselves on our pass rates - we aim to get you to test standard as quickly and safely as possible.
