Preparing For Your First Driving Lesson

It’s quite likely that you’ll feel a mixture of excitement and anxiety about the prospect of your first driving lesson. You may be eager to pass your driving test and gain an increased sense of independence. However, you’ll also appreciate importance of developing the broad range of motoring skills to ensure complete road safety. Thankfully, you can rely upon the professional guidance of the Road Masters Driving Instructors.

Realistic Expectations For The First Session

It is advisable to read the highway code and ask an experienced driver to teach you the cockpit drill in preparation for your first driving lesson. The driving instructor will also expect you to show them both parts of your provisional license and provide details of any visual limitations. You’ll be driven to a safe residential area upon completion of the initial checks. You will then have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the various functions of the driving instructor’s vehicle.

The experienced Road Masters driving instructor’s appreciate that you will learn at your own pace. We do not expect you to soak up every last detail that is covered in the first lesson. We’ll take the time to address your concerns and explain the reasons for common motoring errors. Every effort will be made to ensure that you feel calm and confident behind the wheel.

Setting Yourself Up For Success

It’s worth bearing in mind that your motoring knowledge will increase incrementally over time. The D.S.A recommends at least 45 hours of professional motoring instruction. Of course you’ll learn some of the essentials during the first lesson. However, it will be some time before you develop the confidence and ability to practice hill starts and three point turns. The learning process will prove smooth, enjoyable and ultimately successful as long as you don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
