Driving Lessons

Home / Driving Lessons

Since a young age I had a dream to be able to work for myself and with the love for driving, I took the leap to becoming a driving instructor during the pandemic.

I believe in helping others wherever possible, and look forward to helping you become a confident and safe driver, seeing you pass your test(s) whether that’s your theory and/or your practical test or even both.

I believe that driving is a skill for life, and being able to drive safely and independently is a skill I can help you gain. I am very patient and adaptive in my teaching styles, to suit you I and aim to provide you with lessons full of information, whilst keeping them enjoyable and structured. The teaching technique I use is student centred, keeping your goals in mind.

Before your first lesson:

I will book you into my diary and send you a confirmation message with the date and time. I will also send you a link to the UDrive “Total Drive App” that you need to download and complete the profile section. Don’t worry about anything else as I will show you how to use the App on your first lesson.

What To Bring to Your First Lesson

In your first lesson please make sure you bring your provisional licence, ideally it needs to have the correct details on the licence, but if there is anything incorrect I can tell you how to get them updated.

I need to do a DVLA licence check to ensure your licence has the correct provisional licence category and to see if there are any endorsements. To do this I use the long number on your licence and the postcode. I will also need you to enter your national insurance number on the DVLA website to view your licence record. So please make sure you have your National Insurance number with you as well.

If you wear contact lenses or glasses you would need to bring these with you. I will ask you to read a car licence plate from 20 metres, and the test examiner will also ask you to do this before your driving test, so please remember your glasses or contact lenses when attending a lesson or test. I will tell you how to pay, which is either bank transfer or cash payments. Payment is normally required before the first lesson

On Your First Lesson

I will complete your driving licence check and you will have successfully read a licence plate at the required distance of 20 metres.

I will introduce myself and put you at ease as I know meeting someone for the first time can be daunting. If you have any questions for me then please don’t hesitate to ask.
If you have any medical conditions that might affect your driving I will need to know and I always like to know why you want to learn to drive.

If you are completely new to driving, I will discuss with you what you would like to achieve in your first lesson and agree on a goal to help achieve what was discussed. A good example of a goal is to learn how to operate the controls in the car correctly.

I aim to ensure that your whole lesson time is about driving, but this will also include talking at the roadside to ascertain what knowledge you already have before agreeing the next goal to be achieved. For instance, one of your first goals is likely to be learning how to move off and stop the car under full control; after achieving this, a second goal will be discussed and agreed. Everyone is different and learns at different paces so it’s best to look forward seeing how your driving skills are developing as you achieve each lesson goal.

At the end of each lesson, I will get you to self-evaluate what you have learned, by completing a reflective log. This feedback is a great way to track your progress and for others such as your family to be able to see your documented progress and what you will be focusing on in your next lesson.
