Choosing a driving school is probably the most important decision that you will have to make and can be a daunting prospect. A quick look in the various business directories shows 100's of driving schools in the Woodford, Loughtonarea. So how do you go about identifying the one to suit your needs?
The following sections detail some of the ways that people make their choice.
Unfortunately the standard of driving tuition and service throughout the industry is not as high as it should be, and for that reason the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency (the people who conduct your driving test and those that are responsible for overseeing the industry) are looking at introducing continued professional development.
That means that driving instructors will have to complete extra training to maintain or improve standards.
Here at Drive Essentials we take continued professional development very seriously and we have spent a proportion of lesson fees that we receive on continued development.
"I found my first lesson very useful. Nic of Drive Essentials provided me with all the necessary information for learning to drive but more importantly to me, to be a safe driver. I love the fact that he takes a client centred approach and allowed me to tell him what particular goals I would like to achieve by the end of my lesson but with realistic targets. Nic made sure I was familiarised with the vehicle which l found very useful.
I can honestly say that I can see myself progressing with Nic as he is a genuine, easy-going person and I am looking forward to my next lesson".
