Driving Lessons in Hendon, Wembley, and surrounding areas
Our Pupils Say...
Without doubt, a fantastic instructor. I tried a few others and just felt that they were not pushing me in the right way - Peter did just that, and I was able to pass first time! I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Thank you Peter! Fahad

Driving Schools: Sorting the Good from the Bad
It's Called 'False Economy' for a Reason
A cheap driving instructor could have the best intentions - but what if they're always a little too busy, because they need more pupils to make a decent living? Learning to drive is a big financial commitment, so don't jeopardise it by risking anything but the best attention from your teacher.
Quoted 'Per Lesson'? What Do You Actually Get?
Be sure you know how much time is given over to the session. Pricing should be transparent, and a lesson should not be shorter than 60 minutes. Make sure that you are not sharing this time with anyone else.
Are They Properly Qualified?
Check for a windscreen sticker that says Approved Driving Instructor, with a date (which should be in the future). This is your ADI's licence, issued by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency. To renew that licence, they must demonstrate sound teaching skills in front of a DVSA assessor in a real driving lesson.
The Importance of a 'Dual Control' Car
To keep you safe whilst you're on the road, the car you learn in should have been fitted with foot controls so that your teacher can reduce speed, stop the car, or assist with gear changes.
Will your instructor give you Theory Test revision pointers?
Is Your Tution Proceeding According to Plan?
Feel free to ask your instructor how you're doing, and which of the competencies on the DVSA syllabus you have gained, which you need to work on further, and which you've not yet got to.
Do You Find Your Lessons Too Irregular?
If so, then you could be wasting money, because the experience you gain through driving does wear off when you're still learning. You need regular practice: we find the optimum arrangement to be two hours, once a week.
The Single Most Important Lesson...
... is the one that finishes with you driving to the test centre to begin your exam. This is essential to get you into the right frame of mind and do a little final practice and preparation. Your instructor should value this above all other professional commitments.
