Driving Tuition

Driving Instructors

Choosing the right instructor for you is important. Finding someone that you feel comfortable with and someone who inspires confidence in you is paramount when learning to drive. When you consider that it takes around 40 hours of tuition to reach test standard according to latest Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) figures it is crucial that you find the best instructor possible and someone that you are going to be happy with for the duration of your driving lessons. eDrivingLessons strive to ensure that all of our instructors operate in a considerate and supportive way, helping you gain confidence behind the wheel and enjoy your lessons with us. After all, learning to drive should be an exciting and enjoyable experience.

When it comes to choosing a school or instructor, remember that you should be looking for quality as well as a competitive price. Finding the best lessons for the best price is the key to successfully learning to drive.

ADI Qualified

Qualification is the most important aspect to consider when it comes to choosing a driving instructor. Many driving schools offer claims of experienced tuition but it is important to ensure that the instructor displays an ADI licence. All the instructors with eDriving are experienced Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) and all are recognised by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Association (DVSA). All ADI instructors must have qualified through the DVSA and have met or exceed the standards set to teach people how to drive. They must have held a full UK Licence for at least 4 years and taken much tougher theory and driving tests to ensure that they are knowledgeable and skilled enough to begin to teach driving lessons. To ensure that they reach and keep the high standard of instruction expected by the DVSA they are regularly reviewed by a supervising examiner. This makes sure that all ADI driving instructors are still teaching to DVSA standards and are conforming to the regulations set by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. An easy way to tell if the driving instructor you are taking lessons with is a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor is to look for their certificate on the car. An ADI instructor will display a green certificate on the windscreen of the vehicle during lessons to show they are fully qualified.

PDI Licences

The DVSA also grants licences to trainee driving instructors so that they may gain experience before sitting their final qualifying exam. These instructors usually have very little practical experience in teaching and usually charge less. A lot of instructors offering unusually cheap prices are Potential Driving Instructors (PDI) and while their prices may be attractive they may not necessarily be providing the best tuition. Remember, you should be looking at the quality of the lessons provided rather than simply the cost of lessons. An instructor with a PDI licence will display a pink badge on the windscreen of their car.

All eDriving instructors are ADI qualified and registered with the DVSA. We aim to ensure that all of our instructors have the skills, qualifications and experience required to teach lessons at the highest possible standard.

The True Cost of Lessons

Recent surveys indicate that nine in ten learners who passed both theory and practical tests first time were taught by an instructor, showing there is a clear benefit to experienced tuition. Finding the best quality lessons at the best possible price should always be your main aim when choosing a driving instructor. At eDriving we understand that price dictates the market and we are always looking to offer the best lessons at the most competitive prices. Understanding that the cheapest lessons are not necessarily the best is an important factor when it comes to choosing driving lessons. Like most things in life, if it sounds too good to be true then it often is. Factoring the true cost of lessons after "cheap" promotional offers can be beneficial as well. The latest figures indicate it takes an average of 45 hours to get to test standard and while introductory offers may be tempting the short term, staying with the instructor afterwards may eventually cost you more. You should always choose an instructor balances good qualifications and experience with a reasonable price.
