manual driving lessons Ravenscliffe student passed their driving testDriving is a necessary skill. This skill can open up new avenues to freedom and independence. You could be taking driving lessons as you have to commute to work, to pick up your children at school or to simply make it easier to get to where you need to be. Our friendly and experienced driving instructors can help you. Your driving instructor will begin with an introduction chat to learn about your driving skills and experience. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t had any driving lessons previously as the majority of our customers have never taken driving lessons previously either. During the chat, the instructor will verify that your provisional licence is in good order, conduct an eye examination, and then explain the basics of the vehicle you will be learning in. Local Ravenscliffe driving instructors know the area better than anyone. Your driving lesson will begin in a quiet area away from cars and other road users, so that you can slowly build up your confidence. First, you will learn how to use the pedals, steering, clutch control, moving away and stopping. You’ll face new challenges as you improve your driving skills. Your driving instructor will carefully plan every lesson of you so that you will drive through various junctions, roundabouts, and pedestrian crossings in a familiar setting. Bad habits are difficult to break, so it’s important that you learn how to drive safely as soon as you start learning to drive. Our driving instructors are trained to help you be safe on the roads and pass your driving test. Their vast experience and knowledge in driving will help you to become a safe, confident driver. Your driving instructor will give you a record of your driving progress. It will list all of the topics you need to know to be a safe driver for your entire life. These include techniques like parallel parking, turning in traffic (3-point turn), reversing around corners and an emergency stop. It will let you know what level you’re at now, and how much more you still have to learn.
intensive driving course Ravenscliffe student passed first timeYou can take intensive driving lessons if you’re really in hurry to pass the driving test and get your licence. We offer great intensive driving courses in Ravenscliffe and have many instructors who are highly qualified and knowledgeable to give you the crash courses and expertise that will help you pass your driving test quickly. An intensive driving course is great if are just starting your driving lessons and learning to drive from scratch, or if you are wanting to refresh your skills before taking your driving test. Intensive lessons can vary from a daily, two-hour lesson to consecutive, back-to-back days. We are flexible enough to make it as easy as possible!

Why book an intensive driving course?

Even though intensive driving lessons in Ravenscliffe can be extremely demanding, it can still be worth the effort if you’re looking for a quicker way to pass your driving test. A driving intensive course is the fastest and most cost-effective way to pass your driving test. Because intensive driving courses are usually spread over several days or a couple of weeks, rather than being spread out over several months, your driving lessons tend to be longer than the standard hourly lessons, anywhere from 2hrs to 6 hrs. A 2-day intensive driving program will need you driving for 10 hours. People with no driving experience can take longer intensive courses to make sure that you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that all drivers take at least 40 hours of professional driving tuition before taking the driving test. You could book weekly driving lessons. Although this is a good option, it will take you between 4 and 6 months to complete with one 2 hour lesson every week. If you only book a 1-hour lesson per week it will take you 8 to 12 months. Due to your driving lessons being once a week there is a good chance that  you’ll spend a lot time re-capping previous lessons.

Ravenscliffe Ravenscliffe automatic driving lessons another student passedAlthough learning to drive in an automatic car can be easier than driving a manual car, it all depends on your specific difficulties. Learning in an automatic car won’t help you if your problem is observation If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. There is much less to consider when learning to drive in a city with lots of congestion. Driving in traffic-heavy areas will require you to change gears frequently because of the constant stop-start nature. Even if you’re an experienced driver, this can be quite frustrating. The automatic car allows you to take your driving exam without worrying about stalling or having to use clutch control. In an automatic car you are able to handle difficult manoeuvres such as a turn in the road or a hill-start easier, which can be daunting for students who drive a manual car, as there are no gears or clutch control to worry about. If you have trouble managing the gears in a manual vehicle, you might find that learning to drive an automatic car is easier. This could mean you take fewer lessons to pass your test and receive your driving license.

Is There A Downside To Driving An Automatic Car?

As stated above, automatic cars tend be more expensive than manual cars to purchase, run and maintain. Because of this, automatic driving lessons tend to be more expensive than manual lessons. One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. However, if you pass your test in a manual car, you will be able to drive both. This means that if you are taking your driving test in an automatic car, it may limit your options when renting or buying a car in the future. In the event that you decide later to drive a manually-operated car, you will need another test. The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. However, don’t let this deter you as every year thousands of learners pass their driving tests in automatic cars.

Ravenscliffe driving instructor training Ravenscliffe student passesThere is an enormous backlog of people looking to learn how to drive, so now is the best time to become a driving instructor. There is no prior driving instructor experience necessary. The requirements include that you must be 21 or older, have had a driver’s license for at least three years, not had more than five penalty points in the last four years, and want to find a job that gives you the freedom to make your own decisions or earn more money and do something that you always wanted to.

Before you go to become a driving instructor, it would be a good idea for you to first review the official DVSA guidelines. To become a qualified driving instructor will usually take 12 months. It will take a minimum of 6 months to complete your driving instructor training, assuming that you complete and pass everything in your first attempt, which is extremely unlikely.

The DVSA set the driving instructor certification requirements and there are three tests that you need to pass. To ensure that instructors have the ability to teach others how to drive, the tests are rigorous. Like any adult learning course, being a driving instructor takes dedication and hard work. With the right attitude and determination, it is possible to pass the exams and become a driving instructor.
