Cheap Driving Lessons May Not Always Work Out Cheaper!

By now all of you should be familiar with the term you get what you pay for.

There are lots of driving instructors and driving schools out their offering beginner drivers extremely cheap driving lessons to encourage the learner driver to choose their services when searching for affordable driving lessons. As a driving instructor many of my pupils have asked me over the years of the pro’s and con’s behind these cheap companies devaluing the services which they provide to the local community and how they can afford to provide such a cheap services.

According to the DVSA only 30% of all learner driver pass their test the first time round. That leaves 70% of beginners who will pay for additional lessons and extra test fees.On average this can usually cost you extras of over £140.00 to your overall training budget.

So do cheap driving lessons really work out cheaper in the long run?

As times move on there are many changes being made making it more difficult to become a qualified approved driving instructor in the uk. Lots of existing driving instructors fail to keep with the times and improve there services leaving them with only 1 option to compete in the industry, by offering cheap driving lessons!

Covid -19 update
Driving lessons will resume from 4th July for all pupil following the government guideline. The following Covid 19 measures are in place for the safety of the pupil and the driving instructors, these includes:
Driving instructors:
All instructors will declare whether they are Covid 19 symptoms free at the beginning of each lesson. We will ensure all instructors have face masks available during the day should they need to wear one. But it is up to the individual instructors and the pupil to decide what they would prefer during the lesson. Our instructors will be using the hand sanitiser every 20 mins during the lesson period. We will have the car windows half way down during lesson to keep it ventilated.

Covid 19 declaration for all pupil:
It is vital that you only book lessons if you are Covid 19 symptoms free. For more information on symptoms visit the NHS website for more details and guidance. Be aware we will ask you at the beginning of the lesson if you are symptom free. The driving instructor can refuse to give you a lesson if you are unwell and will be explained to you why on the day.

PPE:
The driving school recommends face mask but it is not essential. Please bare in mind face mask do not protect you from Covid 19.
It is essential that all pupil sanitise or wash their hands before every lesson and after. Please avoid touching your face and eyes during the lesson period. During the lessons hand sanitiser will be available to use. Please ask the instructor when you would like to use it.
We advice all pupil to wear a suitable clothing which covers their arms and legs due to Covid 19.

Preparation of car:
We will do everything possible to keep the pupil and ourselves safe whilst on lesson. We will ensure the car surfaces are disinfected such as door handle, seat, seat belt, hand brake, gears, arm rest etc and any other surfaces. To confirm that is it safe for you next for your lesson. Your safety is our priority!
The used wipes, gloves or masks will be recycled after each lesson to avoid Covid 19 transmission.

Communication during lesson:
At the beginning of the lesson you will be greeted by the instructor outside the car. They’ll be at 2m distance and will explain to you what will happen during the lesson. Any queries you have please discuss with the instructor. Whilst in the car the driving instructor will avoid facing you due to Covid 19 but instead will look forward to communicate with you. If it becomes necessary to give you any detailed explanation during the lesson Instructor may ask you to step out of the car once parked at a safe place to explain the faults or to communicate something vital with you about your driving keeping the social distancing measure in place.

We thank all the pupil and the instructors for their support and understanding and we wish all the pupil and instructors best of luck with lessons.
