Here at Beverly Slater we have taken our time to put together some short snappy tips to follow in order to find the right best possible option for you as you embark on your exciting driving adventure:
Speak to them first
You’re going to spend a great deal of time on a 1 – 2 – 1 basis with them in the car, and you need to know that you’ll get along. By speaking with the driving instructor or school beforehand should mean you form a more accurate first impression.
Don’t choose on price only
BEWARE – if an offer sounds ‘too good to be true’ then it probably is. It will be a waste of your money and possibly the experience could well end up putting you off learning to drive all together.
Reputation & Reviews
Word of mouth is one of the best & most reliable forms of advertising. Do they have a good local reputation and what are their reviews like? Have a look on their social media and online reviews. Would previous customers recommend them?
Is your instructor legal?
Is the driving instructor actually legal? A legal driving instructor will display a green or a pink badge in their windscreen. If they don’t – then it is illegal for them to charge you for driving lessons.
Be able to teach you the way you learn
Everyone learns in different ways. Your driving instructor should be able to adapt their teaching to the best way for you to learn. If you feel you’re not learning anything then consider changing your driving instructor.
