Learning to drive is a rite of passage, regardless of whether you’re doing it as soon as you turn 17 or you’ve left it a bit later. Driving is an important life skill and will enable you to be more independent and flexible, as well as opening up more opportunities in terms of employment not just in driving jobs and jobs where driving is a compulsory requirement, but for jobs in locations not well served by public transport. If you are looking to learn to drive, it is always best to go to a professional driving school to learn, and make use of a driving instructors experience not just at driving, but at passing the test.
Tests of all kinds are intimidating and with a practical test such as a driving test you need to think on your feet and react the circumstances around you. There are also various ‘hoops’ to jump through such as manoeuvres and emergency stops. A professional driving instructor from one of the many Gillingham driving schools will be best placed to show you how to carry out these tasks and drive in a manner that is conducive to passing the test itself.
What To Look for When seeking a Driving Instructor in Gillingham
When looking for a driving school and driving instructor it is best to try and find one local to your area so that you can learn in a familiar environment where you will feel more relaxed and confident. You should also look for an instructor you feel comfortable with. Whilst driving instructors are all trained in the same skills, they will all be slightly different in terms of how they teach and their personality. Make sure that your teacher is a good fit for you, however, they are a teacher not a friend. The main thing to look for is that you feel you will learn from them, and that you are confident they can get you to the point where you will be able to pass your test in a reasonable amount of time, but without rushing you.
