Questions To Ask Your Driving Instructor
- What to look for when choosing a driving instructor
When you are choosing a driving instructor you should be totally confident in their ability to teach you how to drive, after all you are paying good money for their service so don`t be afraid to ask a few questions and make sure you are suited to each other.
Are you an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI)?
This is important because you want to be assured that the person teaching you is qualified to be doing so. You`re driving instructor should have their ADI badge on display.
Do you have a clean DBS?
DBS stands for Disclosure Barring Service - it records any criminal offences committed by a person. Ensuring your instructor has a clean DBS is a good way of ensuring your safety.
How long have you been a driving instructor?
This is a great opener question and allows you to get to know your instructor. You may want someone with years and years of experience whereas another student may want someone newly qualified with a fresh style of teaching it`s completely up you. Length of experience does not always determine capability.
What is your pass rate?
This is not a rude questions it is a crucial one, because after all that`s the end game right? You want to pass your test and you want make sure the person teaching you is going to get you there. The higher their pass rate the higher your chances are - simple!
Do you have any offers on block booking lessons?
Learning to drive isn`t cheap, therefor you want to get the most for your money. Instructors may not advertise block booking but may still offer it. These deals are great once you`ve got comfortable with your instructor and are happy to continue learning with them. Don`t block book lessons if you are not enjoying them as you could be wasting your money.
What is your availability?
This may seem a simple question but it`s actually pretty important. You need to know that your instructor will be able to fit you into their schedule. For example, if they only work nine till five and you work nine till five there will be no opportunity to do your lessons. In addition to this, if your instructor currently has a high number of students they may struggle to fit you into their schedule.
What is your style of teaching?
Again this another crucial questions as instructors will have different approaches and techniques when it comes to teaching just as we students have different styles of learning. By asking this question you can make sure you`re a compatible student- instructor match. You`re going to spend on average 40 hours with this person, so it`s best to try and make them enjoyable.
Can we incorporate theory work into lessons?
Most instructors are happy to help you with theory practice within your lessons, so double check that your instructor is too. Practicing theory within practical lessons is a great way of revising without even realising you are.
What is your knowledge of the test route?
If you know which test centre you would like to complete your test at, check that your instructor is aware of it. This way they can take you along test routes and get you prepared for the test closer to the time.
Do you offer additional lessons such as advanced driving?
You may wish to complete advanced driving lessons at some point so it could be useful to know if this is something your instructor offers. Advanced lessons are a way to increase your driving ability and skill level.
