You’ve announced to the family that you’re planning to take driving lessons and everyone around you has offered to help you. You’re obviously confused and can’t decide between seeking professional help and getting driving lessons from family and friends. ‘Why do you have to spend on those expensive driving tuitions when I can teach you better than a professional’-this is the common advice that everyone gives. So what’s good, family or professional? A healthy combination of both I’d say.
It’s said that an average learner needs about 44 hours of training from a reputable driving school and about 22 hours of help from a family member. Professional driving schools have the required experience to help you clear the tests without a hitch and at the first attempt. The car used to give instructions, is often fitted with double controls and hence if you were to get into trouble, the instructor can take control. Besides, the driving instructor is well trained and experienced to keep calm in distressing situations. A calm and composed driving instructor helps you learn the nuances with ease and efficiency. This is much better than taking driving lessons from your friend or family member because you are sure to be nervous and jittery, every time you have to drive along with them. There’s many a story of couples getting into an argument, because the instructor gets restless and starts shouting.
As earlier said the ideal training is to get help from professional driving schools in Sydney and then ask family members to join you as you practice.
But finding the right driving instructors in Sydney can be a challenge, given the huge number of schools in and around Sydney. The first and foremost thing to do is to check if the instructor is RTA approved. The next thing to look for is experience. An experienced instructor can help you allay your fears about anxiety about driving, giving you confidence.
The internet is a great way to find the perfect driving school. You can also look for reviews about the school. Anyone and everyone who’s not received a satisfactory service from the school are sure to make his displeasure known to all. Web directories too are a great resource. But make sure you’ve checked all the references provided by them.
Another thing to look for in driving schools is to check if these schools can provide cars that have customized steering columns. These steering columns can be adjusted according to the learner’s physical appearance. Some driving schools also provide special instructors who can help teach people who aren’t native English speakers.
A good track record too is important to look for. Driving schools with a good reputation for getting people to clear their driving exam are sure to the right choice.
