When you first learn to drive, it is important that you get your lessons from a good instructor. Your initial teachings are what you carry forever. But the question is how to find a good instructor. There are few things you can look at when selecting an instructor.
How long have they been an instructor?
When you are selecting instructors for driving lessons in Heatherton, you should check how long they have been an instructor. The experience matters a lot. Because as a first time driver you wouldn’t know many tips to driving you need an instructor who can understand the mistakes you make and be polite. Most new and inexperienced instructors have very little patience and this could make the whole experience of driving bad for you. Not everybody learns the same way. An experienced instructor would know how to teach driving in several ways. One way of instructing doesn’t fit everybody. So the instructor should be able to understand your style of driving and guide you through it. Also if you can get references from previous learners, check how many of them have actually passed the test in the first go.
Are they fully qualified?
The instructor may have experience, but you need to check if they are fully qualified to be giving driving lessons. This is important because sometimes the unqualified instructors don’t know the updated rules and regulations. Driving is not only being behind the wheel, you need to learn the road regulations, how to fix a vehicle in an emergency and even the rules and regulation related to certain types of vehicles. A qualified instructor can teach you these things.
How old are the cars they use
This is very important to know. Because most of the time if you are just learning to drive, your parents or friends wouldn’t want to give you their vehicles to learn. In this case you will have to use the vehicle instructor brings. You need to ask them how old the vehicles are. Because if the vehicle is too old there is no point you learning in a vehicle like that. For example if you want to drive auto and the instructor brings an old manual car this won’t help you at all. And at the same time ask if you get to drive the same vehicle throughout the training. If you keep changing vehicles it may be hard for you get the hang of it. You need to be familiar with the measurements of the vehicle when reversing and turning. And if they give you different vehicles for each lesson it will not be helpful.
