  1. Don't assume the cheapest lessons are the best. Concentrate on getting great value for your money. You should not get a discount for block booking - whether you take one lesson to pass or twenty, my costs to you are always the same because my costs of running the car are! , block bookings mean being tied to an instructor when you may not be too happy with progress of performance or even your instructor's commitment to see you pass. I strive to make sure every lesson is value for money and you look forward to the next one.
  2. Block bookings often mean that the 'final' block, i.e. the one as you near test standard mean that you will often find yourself doing more lessons than necessary just to complete the block, a few pounds saved at the beginning soon becomes a lot of pounds wasted at the end. With me if you need 10/15/16 or however many lessons that's all you pay for and need.
  3. I tell a tale, not long ago of a student who came to me after 'buying' 20 lessons in advance, she had three , and you've guessed it, the instructor vanished!!
  4. Check out how long a 'lesson' really is. Some driving schools offer lessons that are less than an hour long, or pick up and drop off other pupils on your lesson time. This must be avoided, with me we often finish the lesson when the specific learning is complete, not when the clock ticks or when the next appointment beckons.
  5. Make sure your instructor has a green badge in the windscreen to prove they are a folly qualified Driving Standards Agency instructor. A pink license means the instructor is a trainee and has no formal qualifications to teach you to drive. There are a lot of these operators around in Lancaster and their quality can often be questioned.
  6. Check that the car you'll drive has dual controls and is in good condition. Make sure the equipment is good and necessary, Power steering, Air conditioning and folly adjustable seating are the pre requisites to a comfortable learning environment.
  7. Check that the instructor can help with your theory test, and buy a good theory book or CD-ROM to help you practice. I also am happy to lend you Free Of Charge various learning aids which will help with the theory and practical test, don't be encouraged to buy from the instructor like many of the 'top branded' schools encourage you to do, more money for you to find and not necessary with me, simply return them to me at the end and there is never any charge.
  8. Make sure your instructor keeps a record of your progress and follows the official Driving Standards Agency syllabus after all this is what the practical test is based upon and you need to be taught exactly to satisfy the government criteria.
  9. Decide when to apply for your theory test together with your instructor, as you learn a lot of my instruction will help you to effectively deal with many of the questions you will encounter and the understanding of hazard perception I teach you will be invaluable in that part of the theory test.
  10. Be advised by your instructor when to apply for your practical test (remember you need to pass your theory and hazard perception tests first) and I will help and guide you to agree when the time is right, I need to keep as close to my 100% record as possible!
  11. Take at least an hour a week, preferably two, of regolar lessons with a qualified instructor. They will advise you on how much tuition you shoold need. Good advice, regolar learning leads to consistent performance and progress, however I will often suggest 1.5 hour lessons or 2.5 which mean that we cover folly and effectively a particolar topic and not finish the lesson part way through a learning exercise
  12. Make sure your tuition car is available for a final lesson immediately before your test. Sounds crazy, but I lose track of how often I hear this problem with other schools, there has never been or never will be any instance when my car is not at your disposal on the day of your test for as much or as little time as you may need.
  13. Finally, be comfortable with your instructor, many of my former students have become friends over the years and I spend loads of my time waving back (not when I'm driving|!) at yesterdays students as they see the car and me working in the area, my lessons are friendly, fun, serious and effective, we will laugh and (occasionally cry!) together and our relationship will be the catalyst which leads to the objective. The First Time Pass.
