Learning to drive is always a nerve racking time. I am sure most people that have been driving for some time think nothing of it, however that first time that you get into a car and are expected to drive can be terrifying.
It is really all about searching for the driving instructor that you feel most comfortable with. They all tend to have different teaching styles as well as different vehicles. This means that the choice that is available to you when it comes to signing up for driving lessons should be great.
One of the ways to find out about decent instructors in your area is to ask friends and family for any recommendations. However this isn’t always very helpful, so looking online could be your best bet. However looking online can be tough because if you search for “driving lessons” you are likely to get all sorts of results from all over. You need to narrow this down so that you are not trawling through pages of unwanted results to find what you are looking for.
The easiest way to do this is to add the name of your local town or area to the search. IE “driving lessons Glasgow”. That way you can be sure that the results are local to you. Make sure you look at the prices that they offer and the type of vehicle that they have. If you are in a position to pay for bulk lessons in advance then it may well be worth asking about this as that can often save you money, which in the long run is always good!
If you are likely to need flexible driving lesson times (IE to fit around work or college), it is sensible to ask the instructor if they are able to accommodate this before you sign up with them. Most of them can, but it is something that is worth checking beforehand.
When you look at the website it should give you an idea on what they offer (IE guaranteed pass?) so you can browse a number of different sites and compare between them before you decide who you would like to sign up with.
It’s the first day of the four-week long closure of the Glasgow subway network, and commuters are being warned to expect longer journeys. All services will be suspended until the 1st of August, to allow for modernisation works to take place. A replacement bus service has been put on. Marelle Wilson reports.
