How to Choose a Driving Instructor

When using the services of a professional Driving Instructor, it is important that you not only receive the expected high level of training, but also a quality of service that represents value for money, high standards and an environment of trust.

Most people don't know what questions to ask when they call a driving school other than the price. So we have listed a range of other things to enquire about that could help you make a more informed decision.

The answers for Europe Driving School are shown in Blue.

  • Are they flexible with pick up and drop off locations? YES
  • What days and hours do they operate? Every day
  • Do they charge more for after hours or weekends? NO
  • How many students in the car at a time? One.
  • Do they provide the car for training, and if so what type of car? Is it auto or manual? YES
  • Does their vehicle have dual controls? YES
  • Do they provide lessons in your car? YES
  • Are their cars fully insured in the case of crash? YES
  • Do they hold Public liability and Professional indemnity insurance?YES
  • How long is the standard lesson, and do they provide longer lessons upon request? YES
  • Do they sell packages of lessons or offer discounts? YES
  • What is their cancellation policy? 24 hours notice*
  • Are their lesson plans structured? YES
  • How do they progress the learner through the varying skill levels? 3 or 4
  • Are they happy for you to come along to any lesson? YES
  • How do they report back to you the progress of your learner? Very good

Be careful about basing your decision on price alone. You have to feel comfortale with the person providing the training, so ask yourself how did you feel about that initial phone call. and don't feel pressured to book a lesson on the spot. You can always take time and call them back after thinking it through. And most of al, don't stay with someone you are not happy with, and don't be afraid to tell them why.

* CANCELLATION MUST BE 24 HOURS BEFORE DRIVING LESSON or if less than 24 hours notice is given then we charge you half of your lesson.

  3 FOR 1 LOG BOOKS

 

On Saturday 21st November, the transport minister the Hon. David Campbell, announced the introduction ofa 3 for 1 scheme for learner log books. This initiative comes into effect on the 19th Nof December and will mean that 10 hours completed with a driving instructor will count for 30 hours in a learners log book. This has been done to ease the pressure on parents who are finding it difficult to complete the 120 hours required before sitting a driving test. The other reform is that learners over the age of 25 will not have to complete a log book at all.
