What Training Is Offered
If you have no particular deadline for getting your driving licence, then for most people, regular driving lessons at a time that fits your schedule is the most effective way of learning to drive. The training is done at a pace to suit your needs and tailored specifically to you, as an individual. Having spoken to plenty of students to find out what they want from a driving school in Norwich, I know this is a popular choice and I strive to ensure this happens when learning with Evolution Driver Training.
I am often asked what is the best way of doing driving lessons? In my opinion, it would be doing two or three driving lessons per week and if possible backing this up with additional private practise. By going out to drive as regularly as possible, you’ll find yourself building confidence at a good pace and will feel far more prepared ahead of your eventual driving test.
The short gaps between each session, will give you time to reflect on what has been learnt and to give you a good amount of time to assess your own performance. This is very important and will make a big difference to how successful your training is.
Some people choose to do a single driving lesson each week. However you choose to do it, you can rest assured that with Evolution Driver Training we will work together to achieve your goals and deliver a professional service at a competitive price. Ultimately, Evolution Driver Training wants happy customers and happy drivers!
Intensive driving courses can be done over a short period of time, typically over a few weeks. Ideally, you will have passed your theory test before commencing these kinds of driving lessons. One of the main reasons for this is so that you have a head-start in your general understanding of driving on the roads, including knowledge of road signs and different road junctions. This kind of knowledge is invaluable when it comes to driving for the first time.
If you are looking around at a driving school in Norwich with a view to doing your driving lessons as an intensive course, I would strongly advise checking exactly what the course consists of.
It’s really important that you take the time to understand the full scale of what’s on offer as some companies who claim to specialise in intensive courses will only give you a very limited amount of time actually driving on the roads, believe it or not!
Some driving instructors in Norwich who offer intensive courses will also allocate some of the hours you pre-pay for to be spent in a classroom revising for the theory test. This is not the case with Evolution Driver Training, so you can be confident that the number of hours quoted for will be spent in the car and out on the roads, which is so much more fun!
Some people pass their driving test and don’t actually get a car straight away, which can lead to a lack of confidence in driving. Some people may also have been driving for years but have had a bad experience which has affected their ability to drive with confidence and without fear. By attending some driver refresher training courses, it’s possible for these drivers to regain their confidence and get back on the road.
Whatever the reason for taking refresher training courses, Evolution Driver Training can help you become that confident driver that we’re all capable of being. Working together in a calm, relaxed environment we can set your goals and work out a plan moving forward.
Refresher driving courses are also a great solution if you find that certain aspects of driving leave you feeling a little anxious. It might be a few maneuvers that you want to work on, or it may even be something very particular like being able to do that dreaded parallel parking in a narrow street! Whatever it is, Evolution Driver Training has experience in helping lots of different people from all backgrounds and ages achieve their driving goals. So feel free to get in touch for an informal chat and we can go from there.
Full driving theory test training is included as part of the service when you book driving lessons with Evolution Driver Training. You will be provided with unlimited access to online material, which includes practise questions and mock tests, as well as a selection of useful hazard perception videos.
This training is something you can do outside of the practical driving lessons, which will maximise the amount of time you get to practise your driving. Be aware, however, that throughout your time of learning, support will be provided and, if necessary, we can look at your theory training during the driving lesson if you choose to. This reason for doing this is simple: I want to be recommended as one of the best driving instructors in Norwich and realise that to do this, I need to make sure those learning with me get everything they need to gain the confidence they require to pass their driving test!
Driving Lesson Pricing
How many driving lessons do I need?
Ah the million dollar question! It is very hard to predict how many driving lessons you will need because every individual is different. Some will learn to drive quicker than others and some people find themselves growing in confidence at a faster pace. However, research from DVSA shows that on average, people who take approximately 45 hours of professional training combined with plenty of private practice, stand the best chance of passing their driving test and becoming a safe driver for life.
One thing I can say is that you will always get honesty from me in regards to this side of things. The way I see it is if I can do a good job of teaching you to drive safely, to a good standard and do that within a reasonable number of driving lessons, then hopefully you will recommend me to friends and family as one of the best driving instructors in Norwich!
I have no reason to make you do more driving lessons than is necessary to reach a good level of driving.
There are actually things you can do to yourself enhance your learning and to speed up your progress. This will save you money and we can talk about this when you book your driving lessons!
About The Car
All of my training is currently delivered in a Volvo V40. It is clean, tidy and comfortable to drive around all types of roads.
Perhaps the best aspect of the Volvo is that for a relatively small car it actually feels very spacious and safe to be in. As a car manufacturer, Volvo has a well deserved reputation amongst driving schools in Norwich and the wider world for leading the way when it comes to safety. This is great for those who may be a little nervous on their first driving lessons and want that extra bit of confidence to get them learning!
The car has dual-controls fitted to ensure your safety during the driving lessons and enable you to relax knowing that you’ve chosen to learn with one of the driving instructors in Norwich who has everything under full control. It has a clear and simple display panel, which helps to make things easier, particularly at the all-important early stages of learning how to drive the car. Ultimately, the car you will be learning in is safe and superbly maintained to ensure that you enjoy your learning experience.
