First School of Motoring provides Standard Driver training, Diamond Accredited Taxi training, Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Taxi Driver Training.
We will recommend the very latest training methods and aids to help you study for your Theory and Hazard Perception Test. We will design a course of practical training to match your specific needs from your first session through to your Practical Test, moving onto motorway training, Pass Plus and advanced courses.
We will provide relevent feedback during your session and, at the conclusion of each, record your development in driver record.
Monitor your progress, advise and recommend the appropriate time to apply for your Practical Driving Test or, if necessary, reschedule a Practical Driving Test appointment.
Honour the 60 minutes for each lesson, and multiples thereof, covering an introduction, the practical training and debriefing.
Pass plus is a programme of six modules, over a minimum of six lessons, specially designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) for the newly qualified driver. You'll get further expert instruction on specific elements of driving and learn a wider range of skills to better prepare for the conditions you'll face on the road. And there's a good chance you can take the Pass Plus course with your current Instructor.
The 6 Pass Plus modules are:
There's no test - you just reach the required standard in each module and your Instructor dates and signs it off. After you've successfully completed all six modules, the form is sent to the DSA, who will award you a certficate.
As well as helping to make you a safer and more confident drive, Pass Plus could also save you up to 30% on your insurance. Come renewal time, just show your certificate to your insurer.
Many people look at taking an intensive driving course, they allow you to condense learning to drive in a short period, normally between 1-4 weeks.
So what should I do? we will arrange an assessment lesson looking closely at your driving and assess your character. You will meet your instructor and discuss a structured course of lessons based around your schedule and training required. Planning a course of lessons is very important and should not be rushed into.
Refresher driving courses are available to any qualified driver who wishes to improve on their current driving skills.
These courses are ideal for anyone who may have taken a break from driving, or in some cases has passed the driving test but not driven for some time.
You may also require experience if you have not driven in the UK before. As a qualified driving instructor we will build on your current skills and develop your driving. We can also provide training and assessments for your self-employed staff if necessary.
Courses are structured to meet your requirements, whether that be motorway tuition, night driving, or practicing that busy route into work. We focus on safety, anticipation/planning, and a smooth progressive drive.
We would discuss precisely what you want to achieve and set out a course of lessons to achieve those aims. If you would like to speak personally about any particular subject then please contact us.
