Learning to drive can be a daunting experience for many, and it is necessary to find the right process for yourself. All pupil’s experiences of learning to drive will be different- some will learn faster than others simply through natural skill, whereas others may take longer to perfect their driving ability. When it comes to your driving lessons, it is best to plan ahead.
First you should consider how you will learn; if you are in a rush to get on the roads, it may be wise to consider an Intensive Course. However beware, the clue is in the name – if you aren’t the best at handling high-pressure learning, then you may want to think twice about this. Also take a moment to consider if you would prefer to learn in an Automatic or Manual car – and consider what options this will leave you with in the future.
Secondly you should find yourself the right driving instructor for you. Whilst you can learn to drive from anyone over 21 years old who has been driving for three years or more, you may want to go for a more experienced and reputable instructor to maximise your chances. Studies have shown that nine out of ten pupils that pass first time were taught to drive by an Advanced Driving Instructor.
Finally, try to multi task – remember to revise for you Theory Test well in advance to give yourself the best chance of passing. Combine your theory knowledge into your practical driving lessons and you will have an advantage above most others!
Safe driving from Britannia!
