manual driving lessons Scotland student passed their driving testThe ability to drive is a crucial skill and could be your ticket to independence and freedom. 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 professional and friendly driving instructors are here to help you. Your first lesson will include an introduction chat with your instructor to get to know you and your driving history. 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. They will then check that your provisional license is valid, check your eyesight and go over the basics of the car that you will be learning in. Local driving instructors know Scotland better than anyone else. Your driving lesson will begin on the back roads of Scotland, in a quiet area, away from other road users. This will allow you to increase your confidence and improve your driving skills in a quiet setting. You will learn about the different pedals and how to steer, control your clutch, move off and stop. As your driving skills improve, you will be confronted with new challenges. Your instructor will plan each lesson carefully so that you have the opportunity to drive through many junctions, roundabouts, pedestrian crossings in an easy-to-remember setting. It is crucial that you learn to drive safely right from the start as bad habits can be difficult to break. Our driving instructors have the expertise to teach you everything you need to pass your driving test and be safe on the roads. They have extensive experience and knowledge of driving that they will use to help make you a confident and safer driver. Your instructor will give you a written record detailing your driving progress. Your progress report will detail all topics you need to know to be a safe and confident driver. These include techniques like parallel parking and turning in the street (3-point turns), reversing around corners, and emergency stops. It will give you an overview of where you are at and the amount you still have to learn.
intensive driving course first time passIf you’re in a rush to pass your driving test and get your license, intensive driving lessons may be the best option. We offer intensive driving courses in Scotland with many instructors with the expertise and knowledge to make it easy for you to pass your driving test quickly. A driving intensive course can be a great way to either start learning to drive, or if you are just wanting to refresh your skills before taking your driving test. We can offer intensive lessons from two hours a day to several days of back-to-back lessons. We can also be flexible to meet your needs.

Book an Intensive Driving Course

Although intensive driving courses in Scotland can be demanding, the reward can be worthwhile if it is a fast way to pass your driving test that you are looking for. They are the fastest and most affordable 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 two-day intensive driving class will provide 10 hours of instruction instead of the usual 1 hour per week. Individuals with no driving experience are able to take intensive driving courses that last longer so that you get the driving tuition required. The DSA recommends that all drivers take at least 40 hours of professional driving tuition before taking the driving test. An alternative option is to book weekly driving lessons. While this route is great, it can be very time-consuming. If you take a 2-hour lesson each week, it could take up to 4 to 6 months to pass your driving test. On the other hand, a 1-hour lesson each week will take around 8 to 12 months. As your lessons are so far apart you will likely spend a lot more time reviewing the lessons from the previous week.

Scotland automatic driving lessons another student passed their testIt is not necessarily easier to learn how to drive an automatic car, it all depends on what you are dealing with. You won’t notice a difference if you struggling with a common problem such as observation. You might find it easier to learn how to drive in an automatic if you have trouble with clutch control and gear changes. When you learn to drive in an urban environment with lots of traffic, there is less to worry about. It is a stop-start driving style that means you’ll be changing gears constantly. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. An automatic car makes it easier when doing your driving test as you do not have the risk of stalling the car and any struggles you have with clutch control. If you have difficulties with the gears in a manual car, an automatic car may be a better choice. You might find it easier to learn how to drive and pass your driving test.

Are There Any Downsides To Driving An Automatic Car?

As you can see, automatic cars are more expensive to own, maintain and run. Automatic driving lessons can also be more costly than manual lessons because of this. A downside to learning to drive an automatic car is that your license does not qualify 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. You will have to take your driving test again if you decide to drive a manual car. In general, automatic cars have lower pass rates than manual cars. This shouldn’t discourage you, however, as many learners pass their driving test with automatic cars each year.

Do you want a new challenge and the freedom to be your boss? Then perhaps you might be interested in becoming a driving instructor in Scotland.

driving instructor training Scotland student passesAt the moment there is a backlog of people who are wanting to learn how to drive, which means now is a great time to become a driving instructor. There is no need to have any prior driving instructor experience. The only requirements are that you must be at least 21 years old, have held a full driving licence for at least 3 years, have not had more than 5 points on your license in the last 4 years, and want to work in a job that allows you to have control of your life, earn a better living, or do what you love.

It is a good idea to first have a read through the official DVSA guidelines before you become a driving instructor. To become a qualified driving instructor will usually take 12 months. The minimum time it will take to complete your driving instructor training is 6 months, if you are able to pass everything the first time, which is very unlikely.

The DVSA set the driving instructor certification requirements and there are three tests that you need to pass. These tests are difficult to ensure that people who pass the test are ready to teach others how to drive. To become a qualified driving instructor, you must have the same commitment as any adult learning program. With determination, drive, and the right attitude, you can pass the driving instructor exams and start your career.
