First time I've ever seen him drive tonight so I don't think the blame lies here. To me it's the basics that he is getting wrong He's paid hundreds of pounds out and I.believe he should Be at a decent standard but he isn't. Maybe he's not meant for driving but I don't think that's the case.

 

I'm a driving instructor and alot of the problem lies with the instructors. Some talk way too much on lessons and the pupils don't do enough driving. You simply can't learn if your parked in a layby 50% of the time. ;)

Had a new pupil last week . She had done 33 hours with a Grade 6 instructor. At 33 hours most ppl should be 'gearing' for their test (excuse the pun). Apart from teaching her awful habits like neutral/handbrake at every junction, he didn't even allow her to use her pedals on any manoeuvres. So how is she ever going to learn???? Then he told her she would need another 30 lessons. At least Dick Turpin robbed off the rich ;)

I would highly recommend horizon. My instructor was gav and he was an amazing instructor, he was really patient and worked on my weaknesses. This was my fourth time taking my test where previously I had failed and passed with horizon with 3 minors. He was really supportive and has a good teaching method that he adapts to suits your learning needs. Thanks Gav!

Anyone know any driving instructors in the Gleadless area that may have availability for lessons starting tomorrow (Friday 22nd January) after 5.30pm? Been let down by another school and looking to start asap. Absolute beginner, but spent most of my life as a passenger so hope I pick up quickly.

Hi all,

 

I just wanted people's advice and recommendations for a driving instructor please, I'm based in Handsworth if that matters.

 

I've done my test twice then stopped taking lessons, I just need to get back in to it ASAP.

 

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Hi

 

My son has mixed up the dates for a 2nd driving test (26th Feb 10:24am - Middlewood) and his instructor is already booked for another of his pupils test the same day.

 

Does anyone know or can recommend another instructor that might be able to help, perhaps someone who starting out and less likely to be fully booked - we've tried a few to no avail.

 

many thanks!!

Can't he postpone the test, giving as of today 3 working days' notice?

Is he keen on taking a test in a different car to the one he is used to?

Finding an instructor who is not reluctant to simply hire out his/her vehicle to a stranger/pupil for a test is undoubtedly tricky. "Busy, sorry" would have been my response, sorry!
