Working With Parents/Carers
We encourage parents/carers to help young people to learn to drive. School of Motoring understand the cost for parent/carers of putting young people through a driving school can be expensive. That is why we like to meet with parents to discuss any area’s of concern. This in turn helps us to tailor the driving lessons to meet a young persons current skill level and training needs. Students become competent drivers more quickly. Competent drivers are safer drivers. We focus on giving young people every opportunity to understand and learn safe driving habits from the very first lesson.
Colin likes to work with parents/careers to help young people develop the critical skills used to identify hazards. A large part of the RMS Provisional Driving test is about hazard perception. Our training is designed to help young drivers see any potential hazards and take preemptive defensive measures.
We do not teach young learners to pass the driving test, we teach them to become safe competent drivers that are able to pass the driving test because there driving skills are better than the minimum necessary to pass the driving test. Colin coaches and encourage young drivers to improve their skills after each lesson, by build on those driving skills at each lesson. This helps each person gains the competency required to pass the RMS Provisional Driving Test. Our goal is to help young people gain the skills to last them a lifetime.
School of Motoring will assess a learners skills and will advise you when we think you are competent to pass your driving test. Most people are capable of successfully completing their driving test at around 120 hours of driving. If you feel you want to attempt your driving test, talk to us we will be happy to evaluate your current skill level and discus your timetable to help you achieve your goal.
