With all these benefits you are definitely getting the best value for your money.
My pupils obviously agree as most of my bookings come by personal recommendation
You want to learn how to drive safely, for life, and pass your test in the shortest time. Unfortunately there is no short cut for the amount of time and effort required for learning and practice - likewise there is no financial short cut by not having the best value lessons available.
Trainee Licences - Beware
Many schools, both national and local, use trainee instructors, but often don't tell the pupils. These have a pink triangular licence in the windscreen instead of the green octagonal licence displayed by fully qualified Instructors. You need to check this with any school you are thinking of going with because they are not treating you as a pupil, you are a guinea pig being used to help them pass their exams, and if they don't pass you will be left without an instructor!
The path to becoming a fully qualified instructor is long and arduous and many trainees at the beginning are just not up to it.
If you book, and pay, for a block of 12 or more lessons you will get each lesson nearly £2 per hr less. Or pay for 11 lessons and get the 12th free, depending how you like to look at it!
