Choosing A Professional Driving School For Your License

learn to driveIt is time for you to learn how to drive and you are wondering which driving school you should use. This is quite a common problem for young people because there are so many driving schools. Unfortunately, many people choose to go with the cheapest driving training that they can get without paying attention to the quality or safety of the lessons. It is important to take time looking at different driving schools because you want to learn how to be a safe driver for your own sake and also for the sake of other drivers on the road. Here are the qualities that you should be looking for:

•    Safety is the most important thing – you want to learn with a school that insists on safety first. Ask them what their accident record is. If they have more than one or two scrapes a year you should move on. If they have been involved in serious accidents it is quite likely that their instructors are not very good.

•    Are the instructors trained and licensed? To become a driving instructor requires one to get special training and certification. Good instructors will display their license prominently in their car.

•    Pass rate is also important. There are some driving schools where the students have to take exam twice and even three times before they can pass and obtain their driver’s licence. Remember, each time you fail you have to pay to train again so it is important that you find a school that has a reputation for passing students the first time around.

•    When it comes to learning how to drive it is very important that you find a driving school that can accommodate you at your convenience rather than theirs. The best driving schools will pick you up from your location and drop you back once you are done.

•    Not everyone learns how to drive in the same way – there are some who master the wheel in one or two lessons and there are others for whom it is a bit more difficult. Since you don’t know in which category you are it is nest to find a driving school that offers customized lessons. If your lessons are based on your needs you will learn how to drive much faster.

To get a general idea of what you can expect during a driving lesson, please check out this video:

•    There are some driving schools that require students to have their own vehicles. This is obviously a problem – you need to fuel and maintain it for the lessons and you also have to pay for fuel. Before you sign up with any driving school you should confirm that you will be learning in their car.

•    While it is important to learn driving training, it is always best to learn defensive driving right from the beginning. It helps you become the safest driver possible. Find out whether this is an option that you can choose.

Lastly, it is important that you choose an instructor that you are comfortable with. Being new on the road can be quite scary and you don’t want the experience made worse by an instructor that you are not comfortable around.  Clients in the Greater Vancouver area of BC, and specifically in the Coquitlam or Port Coquitlam area are fortunate to have Learn And Drive Academy available.  They are the top driving instruction school in the area.  To find out more, visit their website at today.
