Driving 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 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. 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. No one knows Thorpe more than a local driving instructor. Your driving lesson will begin on the back roads of Thorpe, 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. You will face new challenges as your driving skills improve. 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. You must learn to drive safely right from the start. Bad habits can be difficult to break. Our driving instructors are trained to help you be safe on the roads and pass your driving test. You will benefit from their extensive knowledge and experience in driving and become a safe, confident driver. Your driving instructor will create a written record of how you are driving. Your progress record will include all the topics that you must master in order to drive safely throughout your driving career. These include techniques like parallel parking, turning in traffic (3-point turn), reversing around corners and an emergency stop. This will tell you where you are at the moment and what you need to do to improve.

We offer excellent intensive driving lessons in Thorpe and have many instructors who have the knowledge, expertise, and tailored crash courses to help you pass your driving exam 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 are available in a variety of lengths, from a two-hour daily lesson to consecutive days with back-to-back lessons. Our instructors can be as flexible as you require.

Why book an intensive driving course?

Although intensive driving courses in Thorpe are often very demanding, they can help you pass your test more quickly. They can be the fastest, most economical 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 course will give you 10 hours of driving training. 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 every driving student should take at least 40 hours of professional driving instruction before sitting for the driving test. Another 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. Due to the lessons being so spaced out it is possible that you will spend most of your lesson time recapping the lessons from the previous week.

automatic driving lessons Thorpe another student passedautomatic driving lessons Thorpe first time passedAlthough learning to drive in an automatic car can be easier than driving a manual car, it all depends on your specific difficulties. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. Driving in urban areas with lots congestion it is easier. Because of the nature of urban driving, you will have to change gears often. For both experienced drivers and those just starting to learn how to drive manual cars, this can be frustrating. The automatic car allows you to take your driving exam without worrying about stalling or having to use clutch control. Because there are no gears so you do not need a clutch in an automatic car, it is much easier to perform manoeuvres like a turn in traffic or a hill start. 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.

Are There Downsides to Driving an Automatic Car?

Automatic cars are more costly to purchase, maintain and run than manual cars. This is why automatic driving lessons are more expensive than manual driving 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. If you decide that you want to drive a manual vehicle, you will need to take the test again The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. Don’t let this discourage you though, as thousands of learners pass the driving test in automatic vehicles every year.

Are you looking for a new challenge or the opportunity to be your own boss. Then becoming a Thorpe driving instructor might just be exactly what you are looking for.

It doesn’t matter if you do not have any previous driving instructor experience. You only need to be at least 21 and have had a driving licence for a minimum of 3 years, not had more than five penalty points in the last four years, and want to work in a job that allows you to have control of your life and earn a better living.

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

You must pass three DVSA driving instructor tests to be approved by the DVSA. To ensure that instructors have the ability to teach others how to drive, the tests are rigorous. As with all adult learning courses, driving instructors must be dedicated and work hard to achieve their qualifications. With the right attitude and determination, it is possible to pass the exams and become a driving instructor.
