How a private driving instructor can help you learn to drive faster

Many people nowadays decide to learn to drive in a group with other people, or hire an instructor from a driving school. Either that or they ask a family member or friend to teach them.

Unfortunately, with these methods of learning how to drive, being confident enough to take your driving test can take a long time. Hire a private driving instructor, however, and you could suddenly find yourself learning how to drive much faster, and taking your test sooner.

Personal tailored instruction — One of the big problems with learning how to drive in a group is that you do not get personalized instruction. This means you are always being taught based on someone else in the group’s needs or weaknesses.

Hire a private driving instructor, however, and you will get personal instruction that is tailored to your specific skills and needs. This will allow you to learn faster, and to take your test sooner as well.

Flexibility in lesson scheduling — If you are learning to drive with a group, every lesson that is scheduled has to be scheduled taking everyone else’s needs in mind as well as your own. Hire a private driving instructor, however, and you can schedule lessons at times that are convenient for you.

This alone can often mean you are less stressed when you take the lesson, and enjoy it more as it is being done in your own time frame.

Cheaper cost of lessons — While you may think that it is cheaper to learn in a group, or to learn with an instructor from a driving school, it can actually end up being cheaper hiring a private driving instructor.

This is because, due to the personal attention, you will usually need to take fewer lessons. That means, while each lesson may be more expensive, as you have to take fewer of them, your overall cost to learn to drive will be less.

No set syllabus of lessons — The problem with hiring an instructor from a driving school, or learning in a group, is that the syllabus of lessons will be set.

That means you will usually start with basic driving skills, then move on to reversing, doing a three-point turn, and parallel parking. At each stage of the instruction, you will either pass it or fail it. Passing it means moving onto the next stage. Failing it means doing that part again.

The problem with this method of instruction is that it does not allow you to concentrate on driving skills you are weak at completing, but instead just moves through a set syllabus. One skill after another.

Hire a private driving instructor, however, and you can choose to concentrate on parallel parking if you are struggling with that, or move on to three-point turns. This is because a private driving instructor does not have a driving school’s syllabus to follow, and instead can teach you based on what he sees are the skills you need more help with learning.
