Does your Driving Instructor arrive on time for at least 90% of lessons?
Does your Driving Instructor always recap on the previous driving lesson to agree your strengths and weaknesses? ....What do you remember from your last lesson?
Does your Driving Instructor always state firm lesson objectives as to what you will be learning during your current lesson and what you will be trying to achieve?.....It is vital that you know exactly what you are trying to learn in the current lesson.
Does your Driving Instructor teach in a non-confrontational manner or shout and complain when you make mistakes?.....Does your Driving Instructor prevent most errors by checking what you are going to do before you make a mistake or does he complain or shout after the event?
Does your Driving Instructor help and guide you with feedback and encouragement or let you make lots of mistakes which leads to lack of confidence?.....Does your Instructor analyse why mistakes were made and does he praise you when you succeed?
Does your Driving Instructor finish the lesson with a recap of what has been learnt and does he ask questions to check your understanding?.....Statistics show that what is discussed during the last 5 minutes of your lesson will stay with you and reinforce your understanding.
You are the customer and you should not have to put up with substandard tuition......
MAKE THE CHANGE NOW AND START MOVING YOUR DRIVING FORWARD
I recruit several new customers on a monthly basis and the main reason given to me for changing is "lack of progress". To maintain my healthy pass rate, I recommend the following.....
Choose a lesson slot that you can keep to each week (keeping continuity helps speed up your learning)
Taking your lessons in two hour sessions (this is so much more beneficial than taking single hour sessions)
Ask your Instructor lots of questions (he loves helping you answer them)
If you have been learning elsewhere, you will be amazed at my modern coaching style of approach
Every lesson will have a definite objective, there will be no "just driving around" aimlessly
Regular recaps will be used to check your level of understanding
