Hello and welcome to Andy1st driving school. Where better to take your driving lessons than with a driving instructor that knows your area.
Let’s tell you a bit more about your driving lessons. Well, you’ll be going out with an instructor who knows the roads in your locallity really well and can take you on routes that may be included in your test. They will help you experience all eventualities and provide you with as much technical and safety knowledge as they can. You will be learning various manoeuvres, tackling different traffic signals and learning basic perception and driving skills. All of these things will culminate in a 40 minute practical test when your instructor agrees you are ready.
Your lessons may be taken weekly which helps you spread the cost and allows you to learn in a methodical way. You can book a block of weekly lessons and receive a discount or you can just book them week by week if you are unsure of when you’ll be free. It is more cost effective to book in a block but we don’t always know when we’re working or not do we? If you are a student or a member of the armed forces, we offer discounts to you too so please call us for further details if you need them.
We also offer intensive courses which are courses that require you to dedicate a set amount of time to learning to drive. It is as the name suggests – intense - as you will spend most of the day driving but it may only be for a fortnight. The average amount of lesson time for someone learning and passing their test these days is between 40 and 50 hours but with our instructors we try to reduce this. So, if you were driving for 5 hours a day via the intensive course, it may only take you 10 days to pass. This is fantastic if you need to learn quickly perhaps for a job you’ve applied for or if your current licence is due to expire. You will need to set the time and money aside as you’ll need both upfront – the cost cannot be spread like it can with regular lessons. It is becoming an increasingly popular way to learn and we have very good pass rates however, this type of course is not for everyone. We would not recommend this type of course to very nervous pupils for example as it may be too intense. We would suggest talking it over with one of our advisors or instructors before you choose this type of course.
Whichever course you choose and whether you choose manual or automatic driving lessons you can be sure of receiving excellent driving tuition from some of the best instructors in the country. We not only teach you the basics of learning to drive; we teach you so much more besides. We believe in keeping you safe, making you aware of possible hazards and teaching you to use your observational skills at every point. Your safety is paramount and that is why we spend valuable time ensuring these extra skills are honed to perfection. Our cars are safe and comfortable to drive and are regularly maintained.
We have both male and female driving instructors who are patient, kind and fun. They are checked regularly to ensure they are providing the high standard of teaching that we and DSA expect. Your instructor will know the area well and will pick you up on time. They are flexible with regards lesson times and so will try and accommodate your preferred time and place for pick up on your lesson day. They will not get angry or cross if you make mistakes but will simply explain things to you and let you practice as much as you need to.
We take a great amount of pride in what we do and are passionate about sharing our love for driving with you. Being able to drive opens up a world of opportunities. We look forward to teaching you and making those opportunities available to you very soon.
