Many years ago, a sister of mine expressed an interest in learning to drive. Being a keen driver myself I thought teaching a learner driver would be fun. However, I didn’t realise how unprepared I was. We started off in the large car park of a furniture manufacturing company, full of good intentions; but it wasn’t until she took the driving seat that I realised I didn’t have a clue where to start. Needless to say, the venture was not very successful.
Some years later I took training myself and went on to become a professional driving instructor. I worked for a local driving school for a while, before taking further training and joining the British School of Motoring for a couple of years. When I decided to start up my own driving school, the family came to me for lessons. Things went according to plan this time because in the meantime someone had taught me how to teach.
The Benefit of Experience
If you’re thinking of teaching somebody to drive, this is the book you need. With four decades years of experience, both as a driving instructor and driving examiner, I will help you to train a learner driver to be safe, confident and capable. Also with the help of this book, you will learn how to structure lessons, and how to deliver driving instruction like a professional, avoiding many of the pitfalls that amateur teachers fall into.
The instructions are easy to follow and all tricky points are illustrated with clear diagrams. The book covers everything from gear changing, through to manoeuvring skills to preparation for the test.
With a careful study of this book, you’ll hopefully enjoy teaching a learner driver and improving your own skills; and as a result, your learner driver should pass first time!
