Some questions and tips to help you choose the right driving instructor:
- Who did your friends use?
- Which ones do you regularly see on the road in your area?
- What kind of car does the instructor use; is it similar to the one you’ll practise in?
- Find out if you’ll always get the same instructor
- Compare prices and length of lessons
- Check if there are discounts for block bookings
- Is a female instructor available if you would prefer one?
- Does the instructor run a door-to-door service?
- Does he/she offer information on the theory test or post-test training?
- What grade is the Instructor?
Driving standards agency accreditation
Driving instructors must be approved by the Driving Standards Agency. A green certificate fixed to the windscreen indicates that the instructor is fully qualified. A pink certificate indicates that he/she is a trainee.
What if you don’t get along with your instructor?
You can always change instructors if their availability, teaching style, or vehicle isn’t quite right for you.
