Driving Your Way to Success

Aug 18, 2007
In today's day and age, knowing how to drive has become a necessity if you want to be self reliant and independent of public transport. Let's face the facts - learning to drive is a life skill which will stay with you forever and take you places - both for work and leisure. Once you obtain your full licence and become confident while driving, this is when you will realise just what you had been missing until now! All set to Drive?

Here's how you can get started -

1. Get a Provisional Licence: You must hold a provisional license
2. Follow the procedures: Visit any post office to get a D1 application form and complete it. Once completed, send this form with the fee to DVLA.

Wait for two to three weeks to receive the provisional license. Now you are ready to learn driving.

Going behind the wheel is a huge responsibility not just for you but also for the others on the road. Hence, it is imperative to develop your driving skills to the highest standards of safety and competency.

How to Choose a Driving Instructor?
When choosing an instructor there are several points to consider such as -

- Are they available at times to suit you during weekends, evenings etc?
- Does pick up and drop off time come from your hour?
- How much do the lessons cost?

Most instructors will give an assessment and suggest how many lessons you are likely to need. You can also ask your friends and family for recommendations Questions such as personality and teaching methods, reliability, and success rates can help you to make up your mind about selecting a driving instructor.

Who to choose?
- Conventional hourly lessons with a local instructor: This may take months or even years before reaching the required standard needed to pass your practical test.

- Intensive Driving Course: These courses are ideal for those of you who want to progress to test standard in the shortest possible time by condensing many lessons into a few days.

Intensive Driving Schools are known for offering well planned intensive driving lessons and residential courses that take you away from day to day life, allowing you to wholly concentrate on driving with no distractions. Such driving schools are growing in popularity and fast appearing all over the UK.

Usually, an intensive driving course includes both theory and practical intensive driving test within as little as five days.

Driving courses take care of booking both tests on your behalf, removing the worry of booking and getting the dates of your choice. You spend long periods of time in the vehicle with your instructor, building a good trusting relationship which will benefit the more nervous learner.
