Starting your driving lessons is a very important step on your “Ladder of Learning” It is important that you feel you are ready to begin your driving lessons, not being put under peer pressure or pressure from family members.
Learning to drive is not cheap, please do not jump at the cheapest driving lessons as this will normally end up costing you more. Remember, you get what you pay for. Look for an instructor who has taught some of your friends and comes recommended. Again, glossy ads do not mean you will get a good instructor.
Talk to the instructor on the phone before you start your lessons, ask all the questions you want to about driving tuition. Good instructors will have the time to explain all aspects of learning to drive and give information without trying to apply pressure for you to book lessons.
Do not be put under pressure to have the 2 hour driving lessons that some companies insist on. To start with, an hours driving lesson at a time is sufficient. You may feel that you want/need two hour driving lessons as you progress with your driving.
Please remember, you are the customer and you are paying for a service. If you are unhappy about the way you are being treated let your instructor know.
Your custom is very important to us and we want to teach you to drive in a friendly atmosphere where you will enjoy learning to drive and enjoy safer driving for life.
