CHOOSING A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR
There are over 30,000 driving instructors in the country. The problem is not in finding a driving instructor but avoiding the bad ones. Here we will give you some advice on how to choose the best driving instructor for you.
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommends around 40 hours of professional tuition by a trained driving instructor to fully prepare you for your driving test. Finding the right driving instructor need not be a lottery. Start with a quality driving school.
Cheap driving lessons are cheap for a reason. Typically its because the driving instructor cant attract or retain customers. Cheap driving lessons are sometimes offered by some schools using trainee driving instructors. By law, a qualified driving instructor must display a green badge in the windscreen of the tuition vehicle. A trainee instructor must display a red badge in the same place. If no badge is displayed, than be aware, the instructor may be illegal!
You may end up needing more lessons than you really should. This means that passing you driving test will ultimately cost you more. All of a sudden these cheap driving lessons are beginning to become very expensive. Typically, professional tuition will cost you at least £22 per hour, although reasonable discounts may apply. Our booking service will connect you with a quality driving school which gives real value for money.
Some driving instructors will offer a discount for upfront cash payment. However with over 3000 driving instructors quitting the industry in the last 12 months, some disappear with their clients money – potentially, your money !
