Thank you for looking through our website and we hope that there’s enough information to help you to decide to let us teach you how to drive in Hemel Hempstead and pass your driving test. The quality and standard of driving instructors in Hemel Hempstead and indeed across the country has certainly gone up over the years and because of this, we are loving our job more and more each day. But did you know that driving instructors have to abide by certain rules and regulations from a governing body. They are called the DVSA and they lay down certain guidelines that we have to abide to. Some of these guidelines can be found here, these are called The Code of Conduct. For driving instructors, signing the code of conduct is not compulsory but those who have signed the code are basically guaranteeing the public that we abide the rules set out to teach you. If you are ever dissatisfied about the services you receive from a driving instructor, then you can always contact the DVSA and they will then look into your case for you and try to rectify any problems you’ve encountered.
Just to help you to choose from a list of driving schools in Hemel Hempstead, you can also use the same DVSA website to find and locate a driving school. This service is called Find an Instructor and you can use this here. So, although the majority of driving instructors are self-employed, we still have to abide by a set of rules which are laid down by the authorities. So, I’m assuming that you know what the steps to take to get a full driving licence? Firstly, you must pass a theory and hazard perception test, and secondly, you must pass the practical driving test. You can only apply to take a practical driving test once you passed the theory and hazard perception test. Your driving test will last approximately 40 minutes. You’ll also get asked two Show Me Tell Me questions on your practical driving test. You can see a list of these here. You need to revise and know these questions, but don’t worry as this is something I can help you with. If you have any questions before you start learning to drive, then just simply contact me.
Did you know that every qualified driving instructor has to pass three very rigorous exams? As one of the local driving schools in Hemel Hempstead and surrounding areas, we know what it feels like to take a driving test. Just to qualify as a driving instructor we have to study and pass three very rigorous exams, not only that, but we also have to sit an exam every three to four years. This is to ensure that our quality of tuition still reaches the standards set out by the DVSA. So, with this said, we completely know what it takes to pass your driving test and to reach the minimum standard for safe driving for life. Once you reach this standard, you should be at a stage where you can apply for your driving test. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about training for your driving test. You can contact us here.
Fact – The driving test was first introduced to our UK roads in June 1935. Lots have changed since then.
The driving test has come a long way since it’s birth in 1935 and there’s a lot more traffic on the roads these days, that’s for sure. It was in 1903 when the very first driving licence was introduced, this was before the driving test was born. Can you imagine what our roads would be like now if no one had to take and pass a driving test, manic would be the word we would use to describe it. The first driving school was established around the 1930’s and since then probably every town and and city in the UK has a driving school in it. There are many driving schools in Hemel Hempstead and the local areas so finding the right driving school for you can be sometimes a challenge. Especially if you want to try learning in an automatic too as there seems to be a shortage of driving schools in Hemel Hempstead that teach automatics. We teach in manual cars at the moment but how long will this be for? Especially with the way technology is changing, for instance, do you think we could be driving around in self-driving cars soon?
So, you need some driving lessons in Hemel Hempstead or surrounding areas and you want to pass your driving test as quickly as possible? Lets just have a look at how many lesson you might need.
Before we get in to the meat and bones about how many lessons it takes to pass a driving test, you’ll probably hear people boasting that it took them 10 lessons or so. Now whether this is the truth is not our problem to work out. But we would question as to how long ago this was and also question them to see if they had any previous or private practice because in our opinion it’s impossible for a complete beginner to learn to drive from scratch and pass a driving test within 10 hours. When you take your driving lessons in Hemel Hempstead, everybody learns differently and at different rates too. Firstly, you’ve got to master the skills of controlling a car, not just moving off and stopping but also in traffic too such as at roundabouts, busy junctions and dual carriageways. There is also a syllabus to work through too. Although this is not set in stone, there has to be some structure to your driving lessons. This is where your driving instructor comes in. We know how best to structure a lesson so that learning takes place and you learn effectively and also at a rate that’s comfortable for you. Probably the best thing to do is to book us for your driving lessons in Hemel Hempstead and then between us, we can work out roughly how many driving lessons it may take you to get to test ready.
