Already Learning? 

 Frustrated by your lack of progress?  Struggling to get your lessons on a regular basis?  

Many of my customers come to me because they are finding learning to drive a frustrating experience. If your tuition is not effective it can cost you a lot of money and wasted time. 
Did you know that some major driving schools sell surplus pupils on to instructors or call centres who distribute them for a price. I offer a very personal service and do not get involved in anything like that. 
Most of my pupils come from recommendations by past satisfied customers or family members. 
With a relaxed and patient approach I aim to tailor your lessons to suit you as an individual – to suit your ability and personality
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) offer advice on the procedure driving instructors should follow when giving driving lessons. This is to make sure you’re getting the most from your lessons, so read on and check that you’re getting what you should be getting from your driving instructor. 
And if you’re not . . . . . I can help you. 
Does Your Driving Instructor...? 
Arrive on time for at least 90% of your lessons in a clean and well maintained car? 
Recap the previous lesson to agree strengths and weaknesses? 
State lesson objectives so you know what you will be learning during the lesson and exactly what you will be trying to achieve? 
(It is vital that every lesson has a clear purpose or you will be simply “driving around”) 
Give you their full attention and not spend time on the phone? 
Teach in a non-confrontational manner or do they shout and complain when you make mistakes? 
Attempt to prevent mistakes by checking with you what you are about to do before you make a mistake or simply complain or offer negative feedback after the event? 
Help and guide you with feedback and encouragement to build your confidence? 
Analyse why mistakes were made and interact with you to find a solution to improve your understanding? 
Praise you when you succeed in a task? 
Give you the full time that you paid for? 
Finish the lesson with a recap of what has been learnt and does he / she ask questions to check your understanding? 
(Statistics show that what you discuss during the last 5 minutes of your lesson will stay with you and reinforce your understanding.) 
Remember that you are the customer and are paying to learn to drive! 
If your instructor falls short on any of these guidelines, make the change now and speak to Sheila to start moving your driving in the right direction.
