Learning how to drive can be both exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. But before you can get in a car and start learning the skills that will stay with you for a lifetime, you first need to find the right driving school to give you those skills.
With so many to choose from nowadays, you would be forgiven for thinking it’s a case of sticking a pin in a telephone directory and hoping for the best. But in truth there are a number of things you can do to make sure you find a driving school – and an instructor – that sets a good price and offers an excellent service that will help you pass your driving test first time.

The first thing you should do is to ask your friends and family if they know any good driving schools locally that they or someone they know have used. A word of mouth recommendation is always a good way to find the right driving school, as you can get an idea of what the instructors are like before signing up for lessons.
You should of course make sure all the instructors are fully trained and qualified, as this indicates that not only do they understand and implement the skills needed to be a good driver, they will also know how to pass these on to their learner drivers. Don’t be afraid to ask if this is the case; all good and reputable schools should be more than happy to put your mind at rest.
You also need to consider how you want to learn. If you want to take the route that most people take – having lessons every week over a longer period of time – then most driving schools will provide this level of learning. However if time is short and you want or need to learn more quickly, you will need to find a school which offers intensive driving courses to take part in. These are often one week in duration – but again, try and get a recommendation from someone else before choosing this option.
Another way to find your local schools is to search online. Many good driving schools now have a web presence, and you can usually email with any questions you may have before deciding which school to choose. Checking out their website also allows you to find out how much they charge for lessons and whether they have any special offers, such as a block of ten lessons at a reduced price, which can help you to save money on the cost of learning.
