What I offer
If you have no particular deadline for getting your driving licence, then for most people this 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. 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.
This leaves a short gap between each session, giving you time to reflect on what has been learnt and for you to reflect on your own performance. 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. We want happy customers and happy drivers!
Intensive driving courses can be done over a short period of time, typically over between a week and a month. Ideally, you will have passed your theory test before commencing the 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. If you are looking around at different companies, with a view to doing your driving lessons as an intensive course, I would strongly advise checking exactly what the course consists of.
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 of the hours you pre-pay for are spent in a classroom revising for the theory test. This is not the case with Evolution Driver Training. The number of hours quoted for will be spent in the car and out on the roads, which is 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. Others may have been driving for years but had a bad experience which has affected their ability to drive with confidence and without fear.
Whatever your reason, Evolution driver Training can help you become that confident driver we all want to be. Working together in a calm, relaxed environment we can set your goals and work out a plan moving forward. It may even be something very particular like being able to do that dreaded parallel parking in a narrow street! Evolution Driver Training has experience in helping lots of different people from all backgrounds and ages. So feel free to get in touch for an informal chat and we can go from there.
Full 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, including practise questions and mock tests, as well as hazard perception videos.
This is something you can do outside of the practical driving lessons, which will maximise the amount time you get to practise your driving. Although 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.
How many driving lessons do I need?
The million dollar question! It is very hard to predict because every individual is different and some will learn to drive quicker than others. But research from DVSA shows that on average, people who take approximately 40 hours 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, 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 other people! Therefore I have no reason to make you do more driving lessons than is necessary.
About The Car
All of your training will be done in a VW Polo. You will use the same car throughout your training and including your driving test. The car has dual-controls to ensure your safety during the driving lessons and is extremely easy to drive. In fact, a lot of my former clients have decided to get one for their first car after passing their driving test!
Perhaps the best aspect of the VW Polo is that for a small car it actually feels very spacious, comfortable and safe to be in. This is great for those who may be a little nervous on their first driving lesson!
The training car has a 1.2 diesel engine. As it is a relatively low powered engine, it tends to make things easier for novice learners, particularly at the all-important early stages of learning how to control the car.
