How To Find The Best Driving Lessons
When you take driving lessons you want to be sure you have the right driving instructor so we are offering you a money back guarantee on your first driving lesson. It works like this, if you are not entirely happy with your driving lesson just email us within 24 hours of your lesson ending, or phone us between office hours and we will refund you.
Actually we can give you a choice, a refund or a different instructor, and the choice is yours. If you want your cash back and you want to go else where then no problem. Your first lesson is £25 and that is for two hours and there are no other fees on top of that. You second lesson price will depend upon the driving instructor but we will give you all the pricing information you need prior to your first booking. So on your first lesson you pay over the phone to insure your money back guarantee and for the remaining lessons you pay the driving instructor directly.
How Good Are The Instructors?
Unlike many driving school who use non qualified driving instructors, yours is fully qualified. When you phone we will give you all the info you need, from type of car, how many years experience they have, and once the booking is complete the instructor will call you to confirm details. They will just want to make sure they know where you want to be picked up from and where you want to finish. You will give us your address, but if you live in a high rise our on a lost country road it's always best to have that direct 121 contact isn't it.
A Choice Of Male And Female
We can also offer you a choice of male or female driving instructors to choose from but of course that depends upon availability. You will be given their full details of name, school name and phone number.
How Do You Pay?
Every is going to ask how much are driving lessons?When you first make a booking you will make a secure over the phone payment to our UK call centre team, and upon doing so a receipt will be emailed to you. We do this so we can make sure we can provide you with a money back guarantee, all we do is refund your card. On your 2nd lesson you will pay the driving instructor directly and you make arrangements from there.
What If You Want Your Money Back
If you are not happy with your driving instructor then let us know within 24 hours of your driving lesson finishing. If its a week day the best thing to do is call us, we'll give you a special number to be able to do that. Or you can also email us, and if you are on a weekend you will need to do that. We will offer you a choice of a refund or changing to a different driving instructor, but we will only offer you one opportunity of changing instructors. How Do You Book? To make a booking we ask you to complete our booking form and we will phone you. We prefer to work this way because we don't want you waiting if we are busy, and we often are. So let us call you back, if we miss you we will leave a voice message and we can try you again. We aim to call you back within 2 hours. The member of the team will give you their name and phone number if you need to phone us at anytime to rearrange the lesson for example. We will take your details and ask about your driving experience so we can put you with the right driving instructor to suit your needs. Once we have taken payment, we will confirm all the details again with you. Email it to you along with a receipt of purchase and the next thing to happen is the instructor giving you a call.
Who Are Search For Driving Lessons?
You can find our parent company at www.adindi.co.uk and we help driving instructors across all of the UK with leasing cars, training, business support and accessories such as clothing. We have a close knit family like relationship with instructors and schools, and they needed a good way of finding more learner drivers without having to increase their lesson prices. So together we have come together to form an alliance which helps driving instructors and learner drivers.
We Are Independent
We are an independent and family run business, which means we don't float on the stock exchange like some driving schools and therefore we don't have to have high prices. Being this way also means each driving instructor can arrange their own training, to make sure they have the best skills on offer and not to hide behind a brand name where the customer can be be misled over quality.
There Is No Risk To You
Driving schools like the AA, RED, BSM, Bill Plant and Drive Dynamics do not give you a full money back guarantee. So when you book your first driving lesson with us you are 100% safe, your money is not at risk. Telling the difference between one driving school and another is very difficult to someone not in the industry, and let's face it the last thing you want is to find yourself with someone you just don't get along with. So we carry that risk, leaving you to go and enjoy your driving lesson - stress free.
How To Pass Your Driving Test First Time
This has to be the question on the lips of every learner driver and while most driving instructors will say it doesn't matter, what counts is being safe and you will pass when you are ready, it's not really the news you want to hear so here is a run down of how you can improve your chances of passing first time.
The driving examiner wants to know you are a safe driver, you probably already know this, or at least you have made an educated guess at it, and it stands to reason, otherwise just what is the point of having a driving test?
But what is safe? And this is what you need to be thinking about now and then implementing on every driving lesson. If you can create good habits from the start you will not be under pressure to remember those good habits on the day of your driving test because everything will be natural to you.
So then, lets have a think and look at what makes you safe. Ask yourself who else is using the road? Cars, lorries, busses, bikes, cycles, pedestrians, children, groups of children, blind people,emergency vehicles, deaf people, pets, and wild animals. You can probably think of more and you have to say thats a lot, but you can experience any of those at any time and you pretty much always will, so what you need is anticipation. In your theory test you go through a process of hazard perception and overall its an awareness of what's going on and what might happen. of course this is not just about on the road ahead, but behind you, to the rear of you, to the side of you and even above you! If you can show the examiner you are aware of your surroundings and can act accordingly then thats a big tick in your favour isn't it.
Its ok being aware of your surroundings and even as a pedestrian you need to have similar skills, but as the driver of the car you also need to be in full control of the car at all times. If you are not in control of the car then you are not safe. So if your car slips back on a hill start, you stall the car, go up a kerb etc then you are not in control. This doesn't mean you will fail your driving test, that depends upon the seriousness of the fault, it could just be a minor fault, but you must be in control of the car.
Being safe is also driving to the road conditions, so driving at 40mph in a 40mph zone may not be safe to do so, the limit is a limit which stipulates you can't drive faster. But also the opposite is true, driving at 20mph in a 40mph zone could cause other road users problems and could create a safety issue. So where is the line, what do you do and when? A lot of it is common sense and that comes with good driving habits and practice.
Can You Pass Quickly?
Many of the driving instructors we work with do offer fast track driving lessons, these are not intensive driving courses where you can take 30 hours of tuition in a week because we know they seldom work. In fact the pass rate for intensive driving lessons is very low across the country, some suggest around 10%.
However fast track driving lessons are a way where you can learn quickly and usually pass your driving test inside a month. There are three common ways of doing this.
The first method is to take 10 hours of lessons over each each, so you may wish to to do hours a day from Monday to Friday. These can be even used to take you or collect you from work or college.
The second method is based upon weekend lessons where you will take 10 to 12 hours of lessons over a Saturday and Sunday, for example you would split the weekend into 4 quarters of morning, afternoon, morning afternoon. This allows you to have a comfortable break so you can recharge your batteries while giving you a great opportunity of learning quickly.
All methods are subject to availability and that is very true of the third and final method, it is also the least common. You hire the driving instructor for the day. Say from 9am to 5pm. As one offs these can be quite handy but you do not want to do this every day.
Learning to drive in an Automatic
Automatic driving lesson prices do tend to be a little more money, usually £1 or £2 an hour is a common difference between automatic and manual but there are potentially big savings to be made with learning to drive an automatic car. As you do not need to learn how to use the clutch and gear stick, you will need fewer hours tuition.
Can You Block Book?
Yes of course you can, but you would do this directly with the driving instructor. Block booking driving lessons is a very popular thing to do for a learner driver because you are able to secure the same time for your driving lesson every week.
Can We Guarantee a Pass?
Sadly no one can truly offer guaranteed pass driving courses and that is because the driving school is run differently to the team who manage the driving instructors.
What your driving school should be doing is guaranteeing you have all the skills to be able to pass.
