What an adventure we’ve been on!

Learning to drive is an adventure!

Learning to drive should be an adventure; an enjoyable experience! As an instructor, my goal is not just get you to pass the driving test but equip you for safe driving for life. Therefore, if you are my pupil, you won’t be just driving around town but will go on ‘road trips’ – to experience different kinds of roads and situations.

Countryside roads are an important ingredient in any driver training programming and Lauren had an interesting experience that she will tell you about – and was recorded on the video below!

Lauren passed her test at the Lee-on-the-solent test centre FIRST time with only 4 minors!

Marius passed 6 minors 19/07/17

“Paul is a brilliant instructor, he helped me to be more confident and to understand all the rules in traffic. He is very calm and patient, and he explains until you understand. He gave me the strength to keep going and not to give up.”

“With Paul you don’t get only an instructor, but a friend as well. I did with Paul mock tests and it gave me confidence to feel ready for the final test.”

“After I pass the practical driving test, together with Paul I did Pass Plus, and that will help me as a new driver with my insurance and also gave me a lot of confidence to drive on the motorway. Thank you Paul, for believing in me.”

As an Advanced Driving Examiner I am thoroughly acquainted with examining as well as coaching. Want to know if your ready for your test? Come and have a mock test with me.

Pass Plus

When Marius passed his driving test he decided he wasn’t confident to go on a motorway so he had a 2 hour motorway lesson on the M3 and on the same day. As a consequence, he decided to do another 4 hrs driving up the A3 M and then covering Portsmouth and Chichester therefore successfully passing his Pass +

Use of Signals

Why do we use signals?

Q Why do we signal?
ATo let others know what we are about to do.

Q – Why do we check our mirrors before we signal?
A – To check it’s safe before we declare our intention to change direction.

Indicators

Q – What’s the problem with indicating too early on approach to a junction?
A – If there is a road to the left or right before the junction. It might confuse.

Q – What’s the problem with indicating too late (especially on roundabout?)
A –  Other road users don’t know where we are going!

Q – Are there any times you can think of where it may be unnecessary to signal?
A – When we are moving off – if there is nothing around at all.

Q- Why do we always mirror and signal when approaching a junction or pulling up on the left?
A – The car is moving so things can change quite quickly. Its a good habit to practice!

Therefore, signals should be timed, necessary and correct.

4 Main Signals

  1. Indicators (for an intended change of position).
  2. Brake lights (intending to slow down).
  3. Road position
  4. Speed

Q – When do we use road position as a signal?
A –  When turning left or right at a junction or any other circumstance where we want to signal a change of road position. Often used in conjunction with the indicators.

Q – Why are the brake lights an important signal?
A –  If we don’t use them (say just use engine braking), then other road users behind us won’t know we’re slowing down!

Q – How do I use speed as a signal?
A –  Speed as a signal can be used in quite subtle ways. For example: edging forward at a junction. However, this one has to be used with care. For example: pedestrians waiting to cross and I slow down; they ‘may’ get the signal to cross.

Paul is a well seasoned driving instructor

A well seasoned driving instructor

Paul Noble is a well seasoned driving instructor who brought the best out of me during our lessons. I have continued to use his driving technique as a now licensed driver and feel very confident and safe on the road.

Elkanah passed with 2 minors

Tailored routes

He planned each session according to the skill level that I had reached at the time and tailored the routes we drove with an aim to improve my driving efficiently and safely; gradually building me up to more challenging roads to test the quality of my driving, until he became confident that I was both a competent and safe driver.

Vast amount of information

He covered a vast amount of information regarding the rules of the road, technique, the mechanics of the car and best practice in a very simple and easy to understand manner, using both a visual example with a verbal description which helped me to learn basic driving skills within the first few lessons and develop an advanced skill-set as we progressed.

Showed me where I could improve

When I inevitably made mistakes he never once criticised me negatively or made me feel as if I was unable to achieve my best; he showed me where I could improve and how to do it positively and constructively.

I was very happy with the service that Paul provided me with and looked forward to my weekly lesson with him. I would recommend Paul’s driving tuition to anybody looking for their first lesson or twentieth alike, he clearly wanted me to succeed and gave me every opportunity to do so.

Passed Advanced Driving Test

Diamond Advanced DrivingI am really happy to announce that I passed my DIAmond Advanced Elite Driving Test! I passed with only 1 minor driver fault! Now I understand the pressure that my learners feel when on the standard driving test!

What is the Advanced DIAmond Elite Driving Test?

The “DIAmond Special Test” is the UK’s toughest driving qualification, outside of the emergency services. The national pass rate is just 2%!

advanced drivingThe test lasts for 90 minutes and covers a variety of roads and where possible motorways, rural areas and an emergency stop exercise.

During the test, you are expected to complete: 2 manoeuvres involving reversing, demonstrate eco-safe driving and also perform a commentary drive for approximately 15-20 minutes.

A pass is awarded if you achieve no serious or dangerous faults and less than 2 driver faults in the same category.

https://www.advancedmotoring.co.uk/

Who is it for?

The test for anyone who wishes to take their driving to the next level or has a keen interest in driving. Maybe you are a member of a car club or drive extensively for work? Whatever your reason however, this test will make you a safer and more knowledgeable driver.

What are the benefits?

The main benefit of passing the test though, is being able to demonstrate the ability to drive to a very high and safe standard.

DIAmond training focuses on defensive and eco driving techniques. Therefore, a DIAmond trained driver is less likely to be involved in an accident with the less likely-hood of the expensive loss of no claims benefits etc. Having a Diamond Elite test certificate may give you substantial discounts on your insurance.

What about you?

So what about you? Could your driving benefit from taking Advanced Driving Lessons? Maybe you think you have what it takes to pass the Special Test Yourself?  For Advanced Driver lessons, give me a call on 0778 055 3078 or use the contact page.
