Quality Driving Lessons
The roads are increasingly busy and dangerous, so my number one priority is to help people to become safe drivers by providing them with both an awareness of the hazards and the tools necessary to deal with them.
I believe that multi-tasking is a myth, and that people can only focus properly on one thing at a time.
So my approach is to break down driving into simple steps which can be applied in a variety of situations.
I am also very pragmatic, and will adapt my lessons to suit the style and pace of the pupil, so you learn at the speed which suits you. No two people are the same, so I have a number of different methods to teach the same thing. I use the latest technology and videos alongside more traditional road diagrams and free-hand drawings. My car is also fitted with high-definition cameras front and back so we can review issues and situations immediately.
I also make notes at the end of every lesson, so we pick up in the next lesson where we left off in the last one.
My other passion is that lessons should be enjoyable as well as educational, as I believe that we learn more effectively if we are enjoying the experience.
How does it work in practice?
They say that we remember 20% of what we see, 30% of what we hear, and 80% of what we do. I don't know if that's true, but I do believe that we learn more by doing than by talking about it, so I try to avoid spending hours sat at the side of the
Having said that, there is a lot to cover in the first lesson, and we tend to not get going much until lesson number 2. It can also be difficult taking in new information and driving at the same time, and also maintaining concentration for long periods, so I try to mix things up - a bit of chat about something new, driving on appropriate routes to put it into practice, and regular breaks to make sure we stay focussed.
