Learning to drive can be both a daunting and exciting experience. It is my job as an ADI to ensure that your learning is structured, enjoyable and stress free.

The number of lessons required by each individual will vary. In fact, the Driving Standards Agency, state, that those who have passed their driving test have had on average about 47 hours of professional training, combined with 20 hours of private practice. However, this differs from learner to learner, as everyone is different and has different needs.

Below are 3 key qualities which I believe are essential when learning to Drive:
  • Attitude – When making the decision to learn a new skill it is nerve-wracking. We don’t know what to expect, especially when there is so much to learn. It is essential, that, when you as a learner get into the car, you have a positive attitude and the belief that you can achieve your goal.
  • Concentration – This is a key element while learning to drive. It is a must when on the road, being aware of who or what is around the next corner, and what might happen next. It is really important, that, we as drivers keep our minds focused at all times while on the road.
  • Confidence – Be a confident learner. What you need to remember as a learner on the road is that you have every right to be there. You need to be able to hold your own and not be bullied. All the qualified drivers out there were learners once themselves. You need to be able to hold your own.
