I follow a structured lesson plan when teaching people to drive according to the Offically Recommended Syllabus by the Driving Standards Agency. This includes the subjects listed below:
Become a Safe Driver!
The above list is not always taught in the order it is set out above, it depends on whether you have previous experience or just beginning, it also depends on where you stay (I might teach higher speed driving sooner than normal if you stay outside town and have to drive in, for example) but I always make sure whatever your experience, that you know everything you need to not only pass your test, but become a safe, competent driver!
Your 1st lesson... On your first lesson, if you've no previous experience of driving, I'll drive you somewhere quiet, (Seafield, or similar) I'll then show you the safety checks on entering the car, then I'll go over the controls, eventually enabling you to drive off along the road! If you have had previous driving experience, I'll make an assessment, (usually about 10 to 15 mins) and then we'll start work getting you up to test standard asap!

I teach the theory side of things along with the practical lessons, but there are plenty of Books and CD/DVD roms to help you study and prepare for the theory and practical test also. You will find all this information in the Theory Test page above or by clicking here!
