recommend a driving instructor

1

want to do it really quickly. like 2 hours a day 5 days a week for 2 weeks.

£440 for 20 hours and your test at: www.auto-man.org/costs...
who seems to have good reviews.

$445 for same at: ecarcollege.co.uk/#/le...

then there's these guys, who passed a friend of mine her first time: www.excel-drivingschoo...

talk to me about why i should or shouldn't choose any of the above. or about how i might be missing out on a better option elsewhere.

I'd pick the first one = at least u can pay in sterling.

You might be missing out on a better option elsewhere.

Just take the lessons and don't pay for them. Then when they try to take you to court don't go. If you keep ignoring your responsibilities to pay they will stop harassing you.

It'll be sweet

you keep your nose out of it, mr dog.

0 |

keep this thread on driving lessons. not lessons on what are and are not my responsibilities.

0 |

I would also like these recommendations.

I was taught by Clifford McKaigue from Acclaim after a fuck tonne of money wasted with ABBA. Genuinely comes highly recommended from my point of view. Passed first time with 2 minors.

0 |

I just thought it was sage advice at the time and not worrying about the relative costs of each service allows you to focus on who will provide the best lessons. But I'll leave you to it

0 |

Starting all that over again would be a pure melt, it's a proper rip off to learn/get insured.

0 |

doesnt matter who you go with, first lesson get into the car, hijack it and take it up the monagh bypass.

0 |

Sent of for my provisional this week and looks like most places are twenty quid a lesson

0 |

£20 a lesson!? Wow. I thought it was expensive paying a tenner when I did it.

0 |

It was £25 a lesson like 3 years ago when I did it

I used RED driving school. They were pretty good.

Really need to start them again. I made the silly mistake of splashing loads of cash on lessons before even trying the theory test. Just soo much money. :(

0 |

so i should read up on and arrange my theory now then gluebag? as i start my lessons? i suppose yes, yes i should.

0 |

That's what I'd do. I spent silly amounts of money on lessons. Instructor said if I'd my theory done he'd be happy to put me in for my test. I just kept putting the theory off and bought more lessons.

Then moved to Belfast and paying for lessons and the theory test went on the back burner.

0 |

No reason why you can't do both at the same time

0 |

My da is an excellent driving instructor but he doesn't do the fucking stupid prices some of these cunts are doing. You pay more, you get quality. Pm for his number.

0 |

About a score a lesson he does btw.

0 |

Henry's da is a gent. Cracker pins on him too.

0 |

just booked my theory test. it's all happening.

0 |

Aye doing both at the same time would be sweet like. Actually taking what you're reading into practice n that. I just didn't do any reading at all, silly move on my part like. Highway code is still lying round my gaff somewhere untouched.

"just booked my theory test. it's all happening."

Good luck man.

serak
today @ 2:50 p.m.

It was £25 a lesson like 3 years ago when I did it

I did it maybe 5 years ago and it was defo about £22 or £25 an hour. did 2 hour lessons too.

0 |

Aye he's not a bad lad. It's his 52nd bday today, I got him a queen Elizabeth II jubilee commemoration China tea set lolz.

0 |

Ah I loved learning to drive. Have barely driven since though, and I passed 4 years ago

0 |

having went through four driving instructors only one sorted me out in a jiffy for the test.
need to watch out for his wheelbrace though.

everyone knows to avoid driving schools. spend the first four lessons on a carpark then twenty more of youre not ready yet.

balls, get a good independent and 15-20 will sort you.

0 |

phoned an instructor, he said to get my theory done, then give him a shout for an intense 20 hours over 4 days, then test. done. £395 all in. car hire, insurance, the heap. that'll do.

0 |

Who quoted that?

0 |

with this guy, great reviews there - www.freeindex.co.uk/pr...

0 |

is it normal to charge for insurance and car hire?

0 |

on test day yea.

0 |

Car hire for the test is normal, I'm guessing insurance should be covered in that because the guy isn't actually gonna be in the car.

0 |

You have waited this long so stretch it out a bit more than four days to get tour confidence up and become more comfortable in traffic otherwise you will fail and you will be back to the drawing board.

0 |

Agree on avoiding driving schools for the reasons mentioned but it depends who you talk to; some I know found them great. My instructor was semi-independent and I passed first time. He's since went fully independent and I've lost contact details otherwise I'd be happy to recommend.

I'd also steer clear of intense courses if you've never driven, but that's just me

0 |

Have never sat in a driving seat or read anything about driving and tried a theory test online tonight and got 78%. Failed but looks good for when i start learning it properly

0 |

passed theory today. booking test for 2/3 weeks time tomorrow. and only starting lessons next week. BELIEVE!

0 |

all those years joy driving paying off legend eh?

0 |

Passed last Saturday there on my 4th attempt with 15 minors. Lemme know if you want his number

0 |

I'm gonna start lessons as soon as I'm out of a sling. I've done a fair few lessons when I was younger and failed twice. considering just going automatic here for the convenience.....atm I just want to be on the road asap.

Are automatic lessons and therefore tests any easier? Could always do manual at a later date.....or should I just work away at the manual again?

0 |

just pass the manual one ffs. i've only ever driven a car once in my life, about 7 years ago. confident i can pass my test after some intense practice though.

0 |

all sorts of idiots have done it.

0 |

if your looking a bit of craic mmurray Gaffer Mc Nabb is your man

0 |

gonna order the dvd for the theory this week and start reading.

its like 6 quid on amazon, so handy enough.

i fancy one of those intensive week courses too.

0 |

the dvd rom is great, just do a couple of practice theory tests on it each week and you will fly through it. I just want to have my practical test done and out of the way now, it has been costing a fortune for the guts of a year now, so bored of using my saturday morning for driving lessons

0 |

Intensive courses are useless unless u have some driving experience, ur head will be completely melted

Contrary to popular belief, there's no guarantee that u pass at the end of it

Also, a learner will normally keep their concentration for an hour, anything more than that is a waste

0 |

i'm different!

playford, get access to this site: www.drivingtheory4all....

i went on it the day before my theory, spent a good load of hours on it, did about 60% of the exercises. and passed about 15 mock tests on it. after that i was absolutely sure i couldn't fail.

0 |

they've hazard perception training on it too, hazard perception is the easiest part i reckon.

0 |

I had a complete cunt of an instructor who was generally a sarcastic cunt and near got fucking slapped.

He left shortly after for "family reasons". Never started again.

Thinking might chuck a couple of quid at this if get this job i'm interviewing for tomorrrow.

0 |

how you getting on btw alegend?

0 |

my 20 hour intense course starts this friday. my test is on the thursday that follows.

cram it in. get it done. bring it on.
