Driving Instruction that lets you spend less, as our driving lessons are tailored to your needs!
Hi my name is Carlen,
I am pleased to have recently joined the happy crew of ADIs at Andy1st.
I have been teaching for about 18 months, and really enjoy the delight and happiness a pupil expresses when they pass their test, and the satisfaction I feel knowing I have passed on my knowledge to enable them to achieve this.
My car is 'Freddie' the Fiesta. He is a lovely car to learn in, and because he is not too big it makes the parking maneuvers easier.
I have taught pupils from age 17 to 60, and I have been told that I am very patient, which having taught 2 of my own children, then I think they are probably right.
So if you would like to have fun while learning to drive, then please get in touch
Hello and welcome to Andy1st driving school, your one stop shop for driving lessons in Tamworth! We can advise you on all aspects of driving and help you with any queries or worries you may have. We have office staff who are friendly and helpful and after your initial call will put you in contact with your instructor. Your instructor will be professional and respectful at all times and will arrange to meet you to discuss your requirements. They will spend valuable time assessing your initial driving taking into consideration any previous experience you may have.
You will decide whether you wish to learn in a manual or an automatic car and you may have a preference for either a male or female driving instructor. We aim to make the learning process as easy and as convenient as we can – we know how busy life can get and how difficult it is fitting everything into our daily lives. You may choose to take regular lessons paid for in a block at a discounted rate or simply pay on a “pay as you go” basis. You may, after discussion with your instructor, decide to take an intensive course. These courses don’t suit everyone as they involve driving for long periods a day but for fewer days. For example we have had pupils who have booked a week off work and learnt to drive and passed their test in that time. There are many things to consider when learning to drive so you need to take the information, digest it and then make your choices.
We offer flexibility with regards lessons and we deliver excellent training by our expert instructors. We do everything possible to ensure you have the right skills to pass both the theory and the practical driving tests. What we can’t do is hold your hand after you’ve passed! You are then on your own, making your own decisions and negotiating any tricky situations. This is the hardest part and this is when new drivers become vulnerable. Young and novice drivers are more likely to be involved in accidents and this is mainly due to lack of experience.
As new drivers gain more driving experience, their accident rate begins to fall. When the effects of increasing age and increasing experience combine this then produces even bigger reductions in accident numbers. This is why we pay particular attention to hazard perception and observation skills training. Driving is not all about travelling around islands, stopping at traffic lights and parallel parking, it’s about staying focussed, staying in control and staying safe. We spend time analysing accident hotspot data which may sound a bit depressing but it helps us to help our future pupils.
We look at local data and pinpoint areas and junctions that have a large number of accidents reported at them. You and instructor can act on that information and use it wisely. If any of those areas happen to be on a route you’ll regularly take once you’ve passed your test, get practising now! We don’t want you to avoid them we want you to grow in confidence with them and ensure you take extra care and attention when approaching. This list is not an exhaustive one, obviously you will need to concentrate on your whole journey, not just the roads listed here! But the following ones may need a little more due care and attention.
The island where the Lichfield Road (A5493) meets Moor Street, Lichfield Road and Tamedrive has had its fair share of collisions over the last 7 years we have been collecting the data. Particular care should also be taken on Hospital Street as,again, there have been a large number of accidents there too.
The junction of Offadrive (A513) and Upper Gungate (B5493) is also one that needs care and attention. Another island to watch out for is the one where Bonehill Road, Bitterscote Drive, Riverdrive and Tamedrive all meet and then finally if you carry on down Bitterscote Drive the island that meets Ventura Park Road is again littered with collisions.
Please keep your focus, remember everything you’ve been taught and stay safe!
