Learning how to drive is an important step in a person’s life, which makes choosing the person to pass on the skills to you equally important.
When the time comes to take driving lessons, would-be drivers are bombarded with numerous options when it comes to driving instructors. With so many choices, one can find it difficult to choose an instructor who will provide the best services. When you choose the wrong instructor, you will not only be putting your safety at risk, but there is also a high possibility of failing your driving licence test which will mean you’ve wasted both your time and money.
To help you make this important decision, we have compiled a couple of questions that you should ask a driving instructor before you sign up with them.
- For how long have you been teaching people how to drive? This is important because you need to find out whether your teacher has enough teaching experience behind them. It takes a good instructor at least two years for them to become established with their teaching techniques and to fully gain confidence about their ability to match the teaching technique with the current student. A less experienced instructor is not necessarily bad at their job, but it takes a few years of teaching experience to become good at it.
- Which teaching method do you use? This is perhaps the most important question of all. If the instructor’s teaching methods are not aligned to the way you learn, the relationship will not be fruitful, so ask first. If they are not aligned, tell them your preference and ask if they can do it that way instead. This will help make the learning process quicker and more effective.
- Will you be the instructor in all my lessons? What you’re looking for is consistency. You want to have the same instructor for each of your sessions. A driving instructor who has been with you since the beginning understands your capabilities and the progress level you are at. A change in the trainer midway can disrupt the process as the new instructor will have to evaluate your progress and then orient themselves to your way of learning. This could take some time.
- What is your student pass rate? Don’t expect to get an instructor with a 100% pass rate, they don’t exist. But look for one with a decent one and one who can tell it to you on the spot. If the trainer can recall their pass rate without going through their records, it means they care about their job and whether or not their students pass. That’s a person you want training you for an exam.
- How much do your driving lessons costs? The question on price; always important no matter what you are sourcing for. Don’t expect it to be cheap, and don’t accept to be swindled either. Ask around first and get a general feel of the asking price for driving lessons in your area. Asking around also gives you adequate information if you get the option of negotiating the price.
