Why WICKFORD Learner Drivers

Chose Drive School Of Motoring.

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Aiden Thomson, Wickford.

When looking for a driving instructor, I was looking for good quality training at good value for money. I must say that learning with Colin Lott from Drive School of Motoring exceeded my expectations and I found his teaching methods very helpful. He quickly picked up on areas of my driving which needed work and helped me to correct them, usually within the same lesson.

I would recommend Drive School of Motoring as I don’t believe you would find better value anywhere else in the area and, as I passed First Time, with only One driving fault, I couldn’t have wished for a better result than that.

Alastair Smith, Taunton.

Anthony Gill, Wickford.

When looking for a driving instructor it was important to find someone with a good local reputation. It was also important that they had patience and skill in teaching and flexible times.

Colin’s teaching methods were excellent as he encouraged me to look at and solve problems from different perspectives.

I would definitely recommend Drive School of Motoring as Colin has an exceptional teaching style, it’s been a real eye opener and I really don’t see how my learning experience could have been any better.

Debbie Kwong, Taunton

Matthew Goddard, Wickford.

When looking for a driving instructor it was important to me to find someone who was recommended by others and, who would teach to a student’s advantages, in a way that was tailored to me.

I found learning to drive much smoother and less difficult than I first thought and found Colin’s teaching methods very effective, Colin knew exactly what worked for me.

I would definitely recommend Drive School of Motoring to others, not only was learning quick but, I enjoyed every moment with Colin. I would honestly change nothing; the entire experience was incredible.

You Ask – We Answer

Will i Drive On My 1st lesson?

Yes, you will definitely be driving on your first lesson.

If you are new to driving, your Instructor will drive you to a suitable location to get you started. It’s vital that your first few lessons are conducted in an area that will ensure your success and build your confidence.

Your Instructor will take a few minutes to record your licence details, test your eyesight and explain how to adjust your seat, head restraint and make sure you are comfortable.

He/she will then explain the controls that you will need to operate during your first lesson.

You will then be given a briefing on the move off and stop procedure with a short discussion to ensure you understand what is required. Your Instructor will then give you full talk through and guide you through your practical driving session. You will be able to learn at your own pace and your lesson will progress as and when you feel ready.

All your lessons will be structured using our unique ALS (Accelerated Learning System) to ensure you receive the maximum value for your money. Your early lessons will be in quiet areas, mainly on housing estates so you can build your confidence.

 Full details on our unique Accelerated Learning System can be accessed by watching the main video on this page titled ‘Save Your Time and Money’.

Do You Offer A Block Booking Discount?

Yes, we do.

We suggest that if possible, you purchase a block of ten hours to benefit from the £30 discount. If for any reason you are not delighted with your instructor and your tuition, I will make a refund and any unused lessons purchased will also be refunded.

Full lesson pricing details can be found by clicking the ‘Lesson Prices’ button just above the four contact methods.

Do you offer 1 hour lessons?

You may be thinking of taking 1-hour lessons and Just to be clear and give you a balanced view, there is nothing wrong with 1-hour lessons, we just feel that they offer less value for your money as they prolong the learning period substantially.

Another of the drawbacks is having to take time from your lesson to drive to a suitable location that is relevant to cover the topic and then having to drive back again.

So, should you prefer to take less than two-hour lessons, we would not be the right driving school for you as we don’t offer them.

Do you offer a money back guarantee?

Yes, we do.

In fact, we offer an industry leading 9 Star Guarantee and I will offer you a refund on EVERY lesson you take unless you are delighted with both the tuition and service you receive.

 You can access full details of the 9 Start Guarantee by clicking the ‘Learn More’ Button at the top of this page.

How much are your lessons?

Please click the Yellow ‘Lesson Prices’ Button just above the four ways you can make contact for full lesson pricing details.

Do you offer intensive or crash courses?

Please click the ‘Are we the right school for you’ Button for a full explanation of the services we offer.

Do you offer lessons in an Automatic vehicle?

Not at the moment, but we hope to offer the service very soon. 

 

How many lessons a week do you recommend?

We find that taking a 2-hour lesson every week, proves to be the most successful strategy for most students. Two-hour lessons would be far more beneficial to you. You will learn far more for your money and you will also be test ready in half the time. You will have a decent amount of condensed learning in one go with time to digest and be focused for your next lesson.

Sometimes students think that they would be unable to concentrate for a period of two hours, but this is why we would ‘chunk’ your lessons and break up the two hour slot to cover several topics, just as they do in the school curriculum to keep the learning fresh and focused.

Taking a regular weekly lesson has proven success as it provides continuity, the retention of knowledge and it will reduce your learning period. We will aim to offer you a regular lesson slot that you can book in advance and keep from the time you commence your lessons until you pass your test.

 You will also be able to book more than one lesson slot per week should you wish to reduce your learning period and be test ready sooner. (Subject to instructor availability)

Do You Offer Pay As You Go?

Yes, we do, however your lessons do have to be pre-paid 48 hours in advance. We do not accept cash on the day of your lessons, but you are most welcome to pay each week as you go using your preferred method of payment.

Do you offer lessons at weekends or just during the week?

Yes, we do offer lessons at weekends.

Weekend lessons are always in high demand and will be subject to availability.

 

How many lessons do you think I will need?

It’s almost impossible to know until you begin your tuition.

 The DVSA suggest that the average is around 46 hours, but we find that most of our students are test ready much sooner. It really does depend on the individual, but our recommendation is to book ten hours of lessons and once completed, you will have a much better idea of the number of lesson you will need.

Where can I find payment options?

Do you come to me or do I have to come to you?

We will always pick you up at your preferred location. That could be from College, your home, work or anywhere else you choose. We will also drop you off at your preferred location.

Do you have female instructors?

Yes, we have a female instructor, who covers Wickford, Billericay, Basildon, Benfleet and Rayleigh.

What is your 1st time pass rate?

We are very proud of our 1st time pass rate and our instructors deserve a lot of credit for their hard work. Its impossible to give the exact % as we have tests almost every day and it will continually change.

 Checking out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Instructor’ will help you make the correct decision and avoid the costly mistakes that force over 30% of all local learners to change their instructor before reaching test day.

How long is the waiting list?

It really depends on when you would be available to take your lessons.

If you would like to contact us by using one of the four methods towards the top of this website with the days and times you are available, Colin and Terri who are our customer services staff will check and get back to you ASAP.

How come you are more expensive than others?

That is a very good question.

Most people wrongly assume that all driving instructors are the same!

I have produced several videos on this website to help you make the correct decision, avoid the costly mistakes and to avoid being one of the 30% of local learners that feel the need to change their driving instructor before test day.

 Please check out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Driving Instructor’. You will be glad that you did!

Do you teach people with learning difficulties?

Yes, we do but it will depend on the circumstances.

Our instructors do not pretend to be experts, or do they possess special training for certain disabilities. The best advice I can give is to contact our customer services and discuss your requirements, so they can attempt to match a suitable instructor.

·       Male and Female instructors offering the best rated, trusted and recommended tuition in Essex.

·       Manual and Automatic teachers providing affordable packages and bundles for beginners and refresher sessions

·       Many students search for an instructor on a near me basis but we pick up and drop off in the local area, so we don’t have to be the nearest

·       Which tutor do you choose, when some instructors are cheap and lack reviews?

·       Find the top tutor and good companies in the location that offer low student deals on motor car classes and provide advice for nervous learners

·       It’s often a big mistake to choose schools who are the cheapest and buy on price alone and may cost more to learn in the long run

·       Private instruction is available for women with our registered lady instructor and block booking is a firm favourite.

·       We are nearby for new drivers and rated no1 by our customers which is great news

There are many driving schools around the county of Essex, but they don’t come any bigger than Drive School of Motoring. This highly reputable company has become a leading supplier of driving lessons partly thanks to the quality and structured tuition it provides.

Today’s driving schools provide discounts for beginners and new students as the industry becomes highly competitive. We are no different however we try to bring something different to the table & our most popular package, the “Try Us and See” deal, enables learners to try us out first before proceeding with any future lessons. We also offer huge discounts to anyone committing to a block of ten lessons or more and if you’re not entirely satisfied with any part of our service, we’ll refund you in full.

Our online review section has helped us become one of the top-rated schools in Essex. It provides us with the knowledge we need to know what our customers want. From there on in we are able to sell our training courses & individual lessons knowing full well they meet our customer’s needs.

We have strict policies & guidelines which our driving instructors already follow allowing for best practice & client centred learning. These are now the benchmark for instruction throughout the industry. Actual driving lessons are available with either female or male teachers ensuring our customers are at ease whilst carrying out their lessons.

All our lessons are set out in a logical way starting with initial training in a very quiet housing estate. This enables you to gain confidence mastering the controls of the car without the distraction of busy roads. As you learn more within this environment you will grow in experience which will give you the ability to handle more difficult procedures from the learning syllabus.

We encourage our customers to practice with family or friends wherever possible. As they say, practice makes perfect & learning to drive is no different. Your lesson report should be able to assist you in identifying areas where you might need more practice. You should find practicing in areas that you have already been learning on your driving lessons more beneficial than trying to master new techniques you haven’t covered yet

It is recommended you get your theory test done as early as possible as you will then understand the practicalities of driving before you get behind the wheel of a car. Your driving instructor will also be able to book your practical test as soon as you are ready without any delays.

When you can master your driving lessons without any serious errors, you’re ready to take your test. It is important leading up to your test date that you try to get in as much practice as you can. Many students blame nerves when they fail their test but if you can drill procedures in to your head through regular practice you stand a better chance of achieving a pass.

We have a very high 1st time pass rate at Driving School of Motoring solely because we follow the structured steps we have outlined earlier. When our customers arrive at the test centre, they usually feel confident they will pass and generally they do first time.
