5 Helpful Tips For Selecting A Driving Instructor

When you are learning how to drive a car, the process of choosing a driving instructor can be quite a challenge. Luckily, this helpful guide can provide you with the helpful tips that you need for choosing a driving instructor that can meet your specific needs. Be sure to read on and learn more.

  1. Level of Qualification - You'll want to select a driving instructor that is highly qualified, someone who has a long and storied history of helping students achieve their desired objective. Before choosing an instructor, be sure to inquire about their past experiences and find out more about their specific plan for you as an individual. All driving instructors are not created equal and the more questions you ask, the more informed of a decision you can make.
  2. Pass/Fail Rate - In a perfect world, you will be able to hire a driving instructor that passes the vast majority of their students, as opposed to a more harsh instructor that is more concerned with finding reasons to issue a failing grade. Finding out what the instructor's pass/fail rate is provides a great deal of insight into their teaching methods. Every instructor's goal should be to pass as many as their students as possible, so take the time to find out as much as possible about their grading rubric.

  3. Discuss Your Transport - The type of vehicle that you are learning to drive in goes a long way towards determining your success rate. Make sure that if you are thinking of buying a manual car, take lessons in a car with manual gears.

  4. Level of Flexibility - If you are currently attending university or work a full time job, it can be difficult to find time to attend driving classes. Having a driving instructor who understands the ins and outs of your busy schedule and is able to work with you is instrumental to your long term success. In some instances, the instructor may be able to pick you up and drop you off, in order to make life a little easier.
