Learn to drive in Sheffield
Learning to drive is one of the most important things you will ever have to do. Once you’re done, you can go wherever you like, whenever you like, and this really is a life changing freedom. With that in mind, it’s really important to learn right the first time. Sometimes, learning with relatives or badly trained or inexperienced instructors, you can pick up on bad habits. So do yourself a favour: get it right the first time, and learn with drivinglessons.com!
So then: why exactly should you use our site and learn with our drivers? There are loads of local instructors to choose from, as well as larger companies who are known nationwide. It’s a competitive market out there! Well, as it happens, there are all sorts of reasons you should be learning with us.
The benefits of using an instructor
There are loads of benefits to learning with an instructor, and not just with family and friends. First, all of our instructors have a specially designed car so that they can take control if you’re about to make a mistake: so you can have peace of mind while you learn! Not just this, but they are all specially trained, and have been teaching for years, and we’ll cover petrol and any other cost you might incur.
Everyone is welcome!
Whether you’re a brand new learner, just having turned 17, or you’ve been driving all of your life but you want some refresher courses, you can find an instructor through us who can help. Needless to say, all of our instructors are also carefully selected so as to make you comfortable no matter what your background is. This is one of our core philosophies at drivinglessons.com.
Bulk discounts are the number one reason to book with us online! Rather than buying lessons one by one, you can book 10, 20 or 30 lessons with us so that we have you covered all the way from your very first lesson right up until your test. We can offer such amazing prices because of our low overheads: since we operate on a franchise basis, and the majority of our operations are entirely online, we can offer seriously low prices. So, book in advance with us and save!
The great thing is that our discounts don’t mean a drop in quality… The money we save through our business model is passed on to you. That means that you can expect top quality service at one of the lowest prices you’ll be able to find.
Our lesson plans are all designed to suit you. You can pick your place and time, so that you can fit everything around your life. If you can only learn in the mornings, we’re available then; if you never wake up before noon, that’s alright too. Whether you want 5, 10, or 30 lessons, you can choose for yourself! Our courses are designed to be as flexible as absolutely possible.
What can you expect during a lesson?
First, our instructors aren’t just great at driving, they’re great at instructing. They know to make the lesson all about you. You’ll never have to sit in on anybody’s lesson, and you’ll always have the instructor’s full attention. You’ll only start learning the basics at first, and you’ll never be rushed onto something new before you’re ready. We take our lessons at whatever pace you’re comfortable with!
To make sure you’re even more comfortable, our instructors’ cars are all specially designed for learning to drive. That’s why they’re fitted with special apparatus that means that the instructor can take over the controls whenever they feel you might be a bit panicky, or in the worst case scenario, to avoid an accident!
If you’re on a refresher course, you can start with whatever you want to learn about. But if it’s your first time, the first lesson will be on the basics: getting comfortable in your seat, how to hold the wheel (yes, really!), how to use the indicator without flicking the windscreen wipers on as well: that sort of thing. You’ll start to actually drive around as soon as you’re comfortable, first in a car park or quiet residential street, and eventually on the road. From then on you’ll learn all about signs, roundabouts, one way streets- everything there is to know.
Our instructor will take you around the local area, or, wherever you might prefer. It’s really important when you’re learning to learn in an environment that you’re comfortable in. With that in mind, our instructors won’t take you miles away from where you live to the point that you have no idea where you are!
