What Makes a “Really Good” Driving Lesson?

Organisation, Planning and Preparation

Really Good driving lessons don’t just happen at random. Our instructors always take great care over planning and preparing lessons. They will have accurate pupil progress records to hand, and our pupils will be kept informed of their progress, strengths and weaknesses. Rest assured, we won’t be guessing about what our pupils covered in the previous lesson.

The key ingredients of a well-constructed lesson consist of setting realistic aims and objectives, and planning a route to achieve those objectives.
Lesson objectives are set via open and positive discussion with our learners. This way, our customers enjoy being completely involved in the learning process. Our pupil’s feedback on their performance is as essential as our feedback to them. It’s teamwork really.

Example of a Well Planned Lesson
An example of a typical “Really Good” driving lesson may consist of agreeing that for instance, learning to deal with crossroads is the appropriate aim of the day. Really Good instructors will then ensure that the learner is informed on all the procedures to deal with crossroads safely. After a demonstration – if it is necessary – structured practice will take place until the learner can independently carry out procedures unaided and independently. Beginning with simple crossroads, if success is being achieved, the instructor may then move on to busier or more complex crossroads, always offering achievable challenges, never stressing pupils through exposing them to overwhelming conditions. That’s why route planning is so vital. Imagine the first ever crossroads a pupil had to deal with was in peak – time traffic, crossing a busy dual carriageway! The effect of this could put many pupils off driving. We approach each pupils learning as being individual to their needs. We will always work at the pace of our pupils; we understand that learning can take time. Whether our pupils are quick confident learners, or nervous and anxious, our job is to build skills and confidence, that’s what carefully structured learning achieves. With this strategy in place, you could soon be passing your driving test first time!

End of Lesson

Actually the end of a lesson is the start of a new one. This is the time of confirmation on what has been achieved. Instructors will look to make sure the correct knowledge and procedures have been understood. Strengths and weaknesses are discussed and recorded. Theory homework may be set. With both pupil and instructor clear on the way to progress, a new lesson plan begins to form. The pupil exits the car, smiling, happy, feeling they have learned and achieved something. Now that’s a “Really Good” lesson!
