Professional, friendly and relaxed
Your first driving lesson
Learning with Tim Sheeran Driver Training Driving School follows a system where each lesson is planned with clearly defined aims and objectives. Driving for the first time might seem quite daunting, don't worry, no-one's expecting you to drive off onto a busy road on your first lesson.
Every effort is made to help the more nervous pupils gain the confidence required to become safe competent drivers.
Each lesson is structured to suit the individual needs of our pupils ensuring that training is both effective and enjoyable. A record of the pupils progress is recorded at the end of each lesson allowing the pupil to see clearly the progress being made.
Because our driving lessons follow a system, this allows pupils to progress at a rate comfortable to them, only moving on to next phase of tuition as their ability and skill levels develop, this in effect increases the confidence of the pupil leading to the increased ability to learn more effectively, thus speeding up the learning process.
If you have never driven before your first lesson will be concerned mainly with introducing you to the controls of the car. Your instructor will make sure that you are in a quiet area away from traffic before you actually have to do anything at all. Initially, you'll have a go at getting the car moving. Just a few yards down the road and then to a stop.
Your instructor will introduce the various controls of the car in easy to manage stages. Over time, you will come to use all of the controls in tandem with each other. Remember the car is fitted with dual controls for your safety.
If you have previous driving experience your first lesson will be in the form of an assessment drive. During this drive your instructor will assess your driving ability on varied road types and conditions.
After this drive your instructor can offer advice on how many lessons may be needed to reach test standard and any aspects of your driving that require more practice.
