here to help ‘you drive’ with confidence & a smile

Whether you have had one course of driving lessons or three courses of driving lessons, Scunthorpe instructors will let you know when you are ready.

It is important that you are fully prepared for your practical driving test in order for you to approach it with confidence. Many learners are eager to take their driving test and put their new found skills to the test, however there is no set time when it comes to learning to drive.
Many people try to take their test as early as possible to cut down the costs of lessons but if you take the test before you are fully prepared you will have to pay twice for your practical test. But how can you be sure if you are ready to take the test?

Driving Lessons-Scunthorpe Drivers are Independent

You may have noticed a vast improvement in your driving over the course of your driving lessons but does this mean you are ready to book your test? One of the skills you must have mastered in order to approach your test with confidence is to drive independently. In your driving lessons Scunthorpe instructors are with you every step of the way but once you have past your test this will not be the case. The examiner on your practical test will be looking for signs that you can drive independently without direction. Can you operate all of the controls in your vehicle without the need to be prompted by your instructor? You should be able to operate the breaks, the hand brake, the gears and the lights independently.

On your driving lessons Scunthorpe instructors will allow you to encounter a variety of different situations that will mirror the ones you will come across as a licensed driver. For example on one driving lesson you could come across a roundabout, a dual carriage way or a t-junction. If you can navigate you way around each obstacle successfully without direction you could be on the way to booking your test. As you become more experienced you will learn certain maneuvers that will be useful when you have passed your test such as a three point turn. If you can complete each maneuver without mistakes your instructor may let you know that you are ready book a date.

However if you are still uncomfortable driving at certain speeds or find it hard to keep up with the flow of traffic you could need a few more driving lessons under your belt. In order to be a good driver you must have awareness and be able to react quickly to any situation that presents itself on the road.
