Driving Lessons Warrington

Summer is officially here! And with that in mind many young people want to be able to get onto the roads so that they can enjoy the summer travelling to places across the country with their friends. This time of the year is the perfect time to start learning how to drive, there isn’t as much rain so the roads will have more grip on them (unless we have some lovely British Summer Weather!!) and with it always looking nice outside, you can really feel the summer season on the road, especially when behind the wheel in a car. With this in mind Drive4Life‘s fantastic Driving Lessons Warrington are exactly what you need to help you start learning how to drive and to then pass your test. Below are some official statistics showing the pass rates and the amount of theory & practical exams that took place during October to December 2014 (currently these are the latest statistics, even though they are over five months old).

 

 

During the latest quarter (October to December 2014):

 

There were 415,849 car theory tests, 6.5% more than in the same quarter of the previous year. The pass rate for these tests was 50.1%, 0.4 percentage points lower than in the same period of 2013.

There were 393,025 car practical tests, 3.1% more than in the same quarter of the previous year. The pass rate for these tests was 46.6%, unchanged from the same period in 2013.

The number of motorcycle theory tests was 16.5% up compared with the same period of the previous year. The number of motorcycle practical tests was 11.3% up for module 1 and 13.1% up for module 2 compared with same period of the previous year.

Increasing numbers of theory and practical LGV tests conducted in the latest three quarters suggest growth in this sector at a time of GDP growth.

Before You Start Learning to Drive – 3 Vital Steps

Before You Start Learning to Drive – 3 Vital Steps

 

Here at Drive4Life we understand that many of you want to get behind the wheel and start learning how to drive, but there are three steps that you need to complete before you are ready to undertake your practical exam. Follow our easy steps below and get yourself on the road in no time at all:

 

1) Do you have a provisional licence?

Before you can start driving lessons you must hold a provisional licence. If you don’t already have one you will need to apply for one through the DVLA. You can get an application form from your local post office or apply online at www.direct.gov.uk the current fee is £50. You need to be 17 years of age or older to hold a valid provisional car driving licence, but you can apply up to three months before your 17th birthday for the licence to become valid on your 17th birthday. Once you have this, your lessons can begin!

 

2) Have you passed your theory test?

There are two parts to the driving test. The theory and hazard perception test and the practical driving test. You must pass the theory and hazard perception test before you can apply for the practical driving test.

 

3) How do you want to structure your driving lessons? You can start practical driving lessons as soon as your provisional driving licence becomes valid. You do not have to pass the theory and hazard perception test first. You may want to learn at your own pace taking driving lessons on a weekly basis. If this is the case you have a number of options –

 

A. You can pay by the hour as you take the driving lessons, arranging the lessons at times to suit yourself on a weekly basis with your instructor.

 

B. You can prepay for a block booking of driving lessons, and by doing this you will get a discount on the individual hourly rate. You can still arrange the driving lessons at times to suit yourself, which may be on a weekly basis, or arranged as a quick course (sometimes referred to as intensive courses or fast pass courses).

Here at Drive 4 Life, we are often asked by our students about some tips for when learning to Drive. Over the weekend we have summed up the top 10 tips for learning to drive (in our opinion) and these tips should help you pass your test a lot quicker, if you keep them in mind during lessons. Below are the Top 10 Tips for Learning to Drive:

 

  1. Don’t plan for the test, plan for life!

We believe that you should focus on the importance of learning skills for life, not just learning skills to pass a test. We make sure that we teach our students safe driving skills which they’ll use forever, and ask them if they would feel safe driving with a small child in the back. If the answer is yes, then they are ready for life post-test.

 

  1. Practise with the music on

We believe that learning with real life situations is the best way to master this skill and who doesn’t have their music blasting when cruising along on the roads? The majority of learners won’t be listening to music during their driving lessons, but practising with the radio on can be a great way to prepare learners for going it alone on the road.

 

  1. Don’t dwell on your mistakes

You shouldn’t dwell on your mistakes, you can’t change them, and there’s no guarantee that your mistake has resulted in a fail. We always tell our learners to concentrate on what they’re seeing ahead of them at that very moment instead of looking back at what’s already happened. There’s no point in dwelling in the past after all.

 

  1. Think about footwear

Your shoes might not be the first thing you think of when you start learning to drive, but wearing the wrong footwear while driving can not only make it harder, but it can also be dangerous. Learners should wear something with a flat but thin sole, because you want to be able to be able to feel the car respond to what you’re doing. Females should avoid heels and other difficult to walk in shoes, if you can’t walk in them properly, you can’t drive in them properly!

 

  1. Know your routines

You’re likely to hear lots of strange new terms while you’re learning to drive, and it’s very important that you get to know what they all mean. The MSPSL routine, for example, is the Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed, Look routine which all drivers should go through every time they’re on the road. Learn your routines and make sure you’re using them every time you drive.

 

  1. Get your gear changes right

There’s nothing worse than a clunky gear change, so we teach how to find the correct palm position to all of our pupils. We tell our pupils to face their palm towards the passenger when changing into 1st or 2nd gear, and towards themselves when changing into 3rd and 4th. This is because taking a moment to position your palm will achieve an un­rushed, smooth gear change which will always put you in the correct gear.

 

  1. Think about how you learn best

As every learner is different, it’s important that you know which learning style and teaching technique works best for you. Are you a practical learner or do you learn best through reading and listening?

 

  1. Forget about the examiner

Having a driving examiner next to you can understandably make you nervous, but we suggest that you should just pretend that you’re just taking someone out for a drive. You’d want to give your passenger as smooth a ride as possible, just like you do with the examiner.

 

  1. The learning doesn’t end once you’ve passed

It’s important to keep in touch with your instructor even after you’ve passed your driving test. Having lessons for post-test skills like motorway driving, night time driving and driving in snow can all be crucial for a lifetime of safe driving.

 

  1. Break up your learning

Learning to drive can be broken up into small pieces. You will never be able to pick it all up at once, but learning new skills every lesson will allow you to build up safe driving skills which you’ll use for the rest of your driving life.

Michael Hopkins, Cheshire: I recently turned 21 and for my birthday, my parents said that they will pay for my driving lessons until I am ready to take my test. I didn’t have a clue who to turn to though for my lessons. I found Drive4Life’s number on Google and asked around on the internet, as well as other people my age in the area on if they were good. I only received positive feedback, which sold me to give Pete a call. I only needed around 28 lessons and I ended up passing both my Theory and Practical exams first time around. Thanks a lot and I hope to see you on the road soon!

Jack Unsworth , Cheshire: I recently finished University and I decided that now I’m out of education and with a stable income that it was time to start driving. I found Pete’s number on Google and gave him a call, I was then behind the wheel of his car within that same week. I ended up passing my practical exam first time around and I couldn’t be happier! Thanks a lot and I will recommend your services to any of my friends when they start learning!
