The cost of learning to drive depends on a variety of factors, including the cost of lessons, how much driving experience you already have, and how much private practice you do.
So How Much Should a Driving Instructor Charge For Driving Lessons?
The price of a driving lesson is only one of the factors that you should consider when making your choice of driving instructor. It’s not like buying a new pair of jeans. Where several retailers will all have the same product and you just shop around for the best deal.
Driving instructors cannot be compared like for like. They may drive around in similar tuition vehicles. But the instruction they give can vary enormously. Some driving instructors once qualified never take any additional training to keep up with new developments. Can you imagine a Doctor or Nurse never taking further training?
Other driving instructors take part in CPD. Which is continued professional development. This ensures that they are at the forefront of the many changes taking place within the industry.
People often look for a driving Instructor who is “good and cheap”. Unfortunately the two rarely go together as many have found to their cost, but only after wasting hundreds of pounds.
How Long Is A Driving Lesson?
We Strongly recommend 2-hour Lessons.
Why you ask?
The reason is we believe pupils learn and retain more information of each lesson or subject. You get to practice that subject for longer. When you start getting to the point of being able to drive to the test town, this is where most of your training will take place. So it makes sense to practice in the town your test will be. If you only have 1 hour lessons by the time you have driven there, recapped your last lesson it’s time to come home. And finally you get to test standard in a fraction of the time of 1 hour lessons, our average is around 5 – 6 months to test.
Value for money
There are driving Instructors who are reliable. Have first class teaching skills. Years of experience, high pass rates and many satisfied customers. These types of Instructors stay busy for a very good reason. Not because they are the cheapest in town. But because their customers learn in fewer lessons and benefit from top teaching skills.
On the other hand, some driving Instructors still teach old methods and have poor customer service skills.
