We don’t accept third-party vouchers ❌

Unfortunately we are not accepting vouchers bought through other websites

We’ve noticed a trend in the past few months of people trying to redeem vouchers with us that have been bought through third-party sites. These were probably bought for people at Christmas time by parents and grandparents, and understandably – people want to redeem them to get their driving lessons.

If you’re unsure what we’re talking about, they usually look something like this.

driving lesson third party vouchers

We’re not accepting third-party vouchers

These vouchers claim to be redeemable with ‘any UK driving instructor’ (although many driving schools and instructors do not participate in this scheme). The truth is that many driving instructors are not even aware of the existence of these vouchers, let alone the companies claiming to sell them.

As such, 1st 4 Driving are not accepting these types of vouchers. If you have purchased one of these vouchers, we would recommend pursuing a refund as soon as possible and purchasing lessons directly through your chosen driving school.

Our own vouchers are available to purchase through our online booking form by clicking here.

Out of a bad year comes some good

Despite last year and all it had to throw at us, there were a few wins. One of which was delivered to me yesterday. Many of you know my drive for CPD and 1st 4 Driving ethos is in you guys being able to do what you do best and teach, while we in the office do the admin and business side. This I demand of the office staff and myself too, an ethos of continual improvement.

Michael working today on our 2021 plan

So, our win yesterday was

when Michael our then Marketing media assistant, now Marketing Manager received the results of his Level 3 Digital Marketer qualification he has been working on for 2 years. Not only did Michael pass but he achieved the first distinction pass Plymouth College has ever seen in this subject.

A truly remarkable result by any standards but during a pandemic even more exceptional. At one point because of lock down Michael had to discard a whole project of many 1000’s of words as not longer applicable. While Michael completed this he also ran alongside a Facebook marketing course separately and that has paid off dividends in results and new acquisition of pupils and new trainees.

Michael came to me 2 years ago, already well qualified with a degree in Graphic Design and a background of sales and marketing. Last year

this showed in the huge increase in results from our web stats.

Considering there was a pandemic these results are amazing. Considering they were down and hampered by the pandemic its very encouraging for future years.
I am considerably proud of Michaels efforts and I’m hoping you can all congratulate Michael.

Now strangely, for a digital marketer, Michael is not on social media in his personal life however he runs and monitors the Jess Smith company profile, so he is always watching.

Congratulations Michael, what’s next?

    Is My Driving Instructor Any Good? The 6-Step Guide to Getting it Right First Time

    Honestly, looking for a driving instructor is a minefield. It’s really not easy.

    And that’s not through a lack of finding them. They’re in local ads, on Google – and even on social media platforms. Driving instructors are literally everywhere. But just how can you tell if they’re any good?

    suspicious baby

    Is price a factor?

    Sometimes…

    💰 If only it was as easy as price. Logic dictates that the most expensive instructors should be the best and the cheapest the worst. But it really is not that easy. It is true that some of the best driving instructors charge the highest prices, but equally there are some high-priced instructors who are just good at marketing (or very brave!).

    Likewise, there are some great driving instructors offering cheaper driving lessons and some absolutely desperate ones offering them at cut price, too. Often, some of the best driving instructors charge cheap prices because (while they are good instructors), they are not so good at marketing.

    One of the highest qualified instructors I know is currently considering finding another job because they can’t find enough work – yet some very bad instructors are fully booked with no availability.

    Driving schools vs the independent

    You can’t rely this as a factor…

    🚗 A ‘franchised’ driving instructor works for a larger school, but that doesn’t mean the instructor is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. With a school, you may have more chance of transferring to another instructor if you don’t like your current one. An ‘independent’ is normally a one-man-band driving school who markets themselves. Often these can appear as being a larger driving school with multiple instructors, but in fact it’s just one person. There are many great independent driving instructors and a whole lot of very bad ones.

    …but my mate says

    💬 Referrals are a good guide. Asking friends who they use (or have passed with) and reading reviews about an instructor can help you ensure you’re getting a good one – but this can go wrong.

    What works for one learner doesn’t always work for another. We all have different learning styles and if your driving instructor is the ‘one size fits all’ type (and if you can’t learn using their methods) then problems can occur.

    Don’t despair – help is at hand

    So, is there light at the end of the tunnel? Well yes.

    There are things you can do to find out a little more about your driving instructor before you book lessons. First of all, your driving instructor should present themselves as professional from the outset.

    • Did they ask you questions when booking?
    • Did they sound interested in you, finding out things like whether you’re at college?

    This all helps build a picture as to the type of learner you are – and as such the instructor should have the skills to adapt to your style of learning. If you called a national driving school, the individual driving instructor should call you before the driving lesson – or better still as soon after booking to speak to you personally.

    🚨🚨 No call? Alarm bells should be ringing!! 🚨🚨

    1. Please don’t shout at me

    Does the driving instructor lessons seem like they’re always shouting at you on lessons?

    Often this isn’t ‘shouting,’ but they are just ‘telling’. But then ‘telling’ that seems like ‘shouting’ is, in effect, ‘shouting’. Are you with me? 🗣️

    ⛔ Driving instructors should never do this. Instead, proper coaching methods should be used – they should be asking you questions. All instructors should be trained in the art of making the lessons feel a conversation rather than being ‘told off’.

    🚨🚨 Feel like you’re being told off? I’m hearing alarm bells again!! 🚨🚨

    idiot sandwich

    Shouting at people isn’t a good coaching technique

    2. “…Sorry I got held up, AGAIN!!”

    Always late?

    ⌚ Your driving instructor should arrive on time for lessons and finish on time too. OK, occasionally things happen, but it’s unlikely to be more than once in a whole series of driving lessons. Make sure your instructor isn’t shaving off five minutes or so at the end of each driving lesson.

    🚨🚨 Is your driving instructor prompt? Can I hear something ringing? 🚨🚨

    3. Time will tell

    Does your driving instructor offer the optimum 2 hour driving lesson?

    There are many academic reasons why the 2 hour driving lesson is best option for learners. Your lesson should be broken down into 3 separate mini-lessons where the task demands suit you. We find that pupils will require around a third fewer hours, meaning they pass quicker using this method.

    Now, some will disagree with me on this, but trust me – I have a Master’s Degree in education, am a qualified teacher (Cert.Ed) and I have a whole host of experience and research projects behind me.

    Many instructors will say “I prefer to do xxtime (eg 90 min) driving lessons.” The clue here is in the “I prefer.” It’s not because it helps the learner, but because that’s what they prefer.

    And while the 2 hour lesson might appear expensive, you will save money in the long-run, research shows that you’ll pass in fewer hours and you will pass quicker.

    Of course, there are occasions where a learner might have an issue with 2 hours, but this can easily be identified by the instructor and they can change the duration. In 15 years teaching learners I had no more than five pupils do 1 hour driving lessons.

    I have heard pupils say “I find a 2 hour driving lessons boring.Well, that’s because your instructor is making it boring. Driving lessons shouldn’t be boring – they should be fun.

    🚨🚨 Is your driving instructor boring? Alarm bells again!! 🚨🚨

    alarm bells

    4. Nice car, gov

    You can usually judge an instructor by their car.

    Your driving instructor’s car should look professional, too. It should be clean and free from paperwork. I have been in instructors’ cars that have had no less than FIVE different discarded takeaway wrappers in – some even had the remains of the food inside them 🤢.

    🚭 The car should not smell of smoke (or anything else offensive). On a driving test, if a driving school car smells of cigarette smoke, the examiner has the right to refuse to do the driving test in it.

    🚨🚨 Is your instructor’s car looking professional? If not, well, hopefully you’re getting the idea by now!! 🚨🚨

    5. OMG they’re on the bloody phone

    📵 Your driving instructor should NEVER EVER use their phone to call, text or for anything on a driving lesson.

    Apart from it being a criminal offence for a driving instructor (or anyone supervising a learner) it is highly unprofessional. Your time is paid for by you and not for your driving instructor to share selfies, jokes or anything else on social media, or deal with other bookings or amending other pupil’s lessons. Almost every day I see driving instructors on their phones whilst giving tuition – and if that’s their attitude, then what is it to your safety while in the car?

    🚨🚨 Is your driving instructor using their phone at all? Alarm bells have rung!! 🚨🚨

    6. Review everything

    If none of your friends have any recommendations for you, a great way to find out about an instructor is to read review on independent sites such as Facebook or Google.

    Another good thing to do is to ask if you can have a 2-hour trial lesson because many driving schools do this at a reduced rate. They do this because they are very confident that you will choose them after the trial. They can be a little bit more expensive after, but you will save a lot of money, worry and time in the long term. Remember never be afraid to change instructor if anything does not feel right. And if you do, you won’t be alone.

    ℹ️ Remember this: on average pupils change their instructor twice before finding the right one. But follow the tips above to ensure you get it right first time.

    Cut driving test nerves with this one simple trick!

    Do you feel nervous or even scared about taking your driving test?

    Maybe you’ve taken a driving test and failed because your nerves let you down.

    Driving test nerves

    Test nerves can get the better of anyone on a driving test and is recognised as a major factor in failing the test.

    Would you like to get the better of your test nerves and beat the driving test easily?

    The answer, of course, is yes – and in most cases this is relatively easy. Now, there are cases where medically, nerves can be more than just a simple solution and this may apply to you.

    You might feel that you suffer from more nerve problems than the average person, but the truth is that if I asked 100 pupils if they fitted that description, the majority would say they do.

    Most test nerves can actually be sorted using one simple approach. This method has worked for almost all the pupils I’ve ever trained as a driving instructor. It actually came about when I took extra qualifications to become a teacher, because I wanted to know more about teaching and learning methods.

    While studying, I looked into the psychology behind what typically caused nerves and took my own training to an advanced level. What I discovered though was more by accident than any scientific or educational approach. My education and research merely confirmed what I later found out.

    Let me explain:

    Whether you have a driving test coming up, or have just failed one, sit down quietly and ask yourself “what would I most be afraid of if my driving test was today?I have asked hundreds of pupils this over the years who claim they failed because of nerves and the answers are always of a similar nature.

    • I really hate the reverse bay park
    • I really don’t like a certain roundabout
    • I don’t like going on the dual carriageway
    • I’m not happy with the independent drive

    These are just a few examples of some of the skill-based problems that pupils have mentioned.

    Now imagine you’re sat in a test centre with all these things going through your mind. I would be nervous too. You’ll be in the test centre full of worry and hoping the examiner won’t get you to do the things you’re nervous about.

    You start the test and drive off. Your mind is on the route, thinking things like “please don’t go right, that’s where that big roundabout is.You’re not concentrating on the here and now. When this happens, it is so easy to rack up those driver faults.

    Nervous? Find out how 1st 4 Driving can help here!

    How do we avoid this?

    About six weeks before their driving test, I would ask all my pupils “If your driving test were today, what would you be most scared of?They would tell me the things that worried them most.

    The next question was, “what would you like to do on today’s driving lesson?Yes, they would always opt for the things they did not like. But then I noticed an odd thing happening on driving tests. Pupils were passing, but would have a little disappointment afterwards. This confused me.

    You’ve passed!” I would say. “Yes, but the examiner didn’t make me do (eg) that big roundabout” – the very things they used to be nervous about! The pupils were actually disappointed they did not get a chance to show the examiner they could do the things they were once afraid to do.

    I realised that these pupils were sitting in the test centre, not nervous, but saying to themselves “come on examiner, bring it on!” They weren’t afraid of the things they were once afraid of – they wanted to show they could do them. A completely different mindset.

    Imagine you weren’t nervous about any element of the test; how much better would it be for you?

    Apart from not being ready, there are of course other problems facing you that can cause driving test nerves. One of which is the myth about driving test pass quotas.

    Let me assure you as someone who has spent 20 years in this profession, someone who has researched, completed his own independent statistics on hundreds of driving tests on this matter and spoken to more examiners on and off the record than most driving instructors: There are NO SUCH TRUTHS.

    There are no quotas. If you drive well enough on the day, you will pass.

    Look at it like this. If you fail, the examiner must write up a small report after you fail in-between your driving test and the next one. What would you rather be doing, writing reports or having a cup of tea? These myths are often spread by bad driving instructors to justify their poor pass rates.

    Driver faults

    Another problem is caused using the term ‘minor driving test fault’. Minor faults have not been used since 1997. That was when we went over to our current system of marking to make the driving test fairer.

    There are 4 types of driving faults:

    1. Fault of no consequence
    2. Driver fault
    3. Serious fault
    4. Dangerous fault

    Now, this next bit is important.

    Every fault you commit on the road can be classed as one of the above. There is no such thing as “cutting the corner is always a serious fault.” The fault you commit, whatever it is, will be given its type based on what happens around you.

    Let’s look at some examples

    You cut the corner slightly:

    Learning to drive cut corner

    Here, you and the examiner can both see well into the road. There were no obstructions, no cars coming, no pedestrians or anything that could have potentially caused a problem. This is either a fault of no consequence, or a driver fault at worst. No law was broken and you caused no danger – or even any potential danger.

    Take the same corner cut:

    Learning to drive cut corner

    This time there was a slight obstruction and you could not see into the road. This becomes a driver fault (or if the obstruction was bad enough or a car was present and out of the way then maybe a serious fault). You see ‘potentially’ there could have been a problem. Potentially there was danger.

    And again, the same corner cut:

    Learning to drive cut corner

    This time either the examiner had to take action either verbally or physically, or another driver had to take action to avoid you. This is certainly a dangerous fault!

    Don’t worry yourself about the type of fault. Concentrate on the here and now. If you’re thinking about something or you’re worried about the type of fault, you will make mistakes in the simple things. Mirrors will slip or you’ll forget that signal.

    What if I go the wrong way?

    Do not worry if you go the wrong way.

    This often happens and if you do this safely then you will still be OK. Examiners will simply change to route to get you back on course. They do it all the time and often the pupil never even knows.

    If you feel like you need to change lanes, remember your observations. So many pupils say they failed “because they changed lanes” when in fact they failed because they didn’t make proper observations when changing lanes. There is a difference!

    Remember – if you fail it might not seem like good news at the time, but the examiner has spotted something that is wrong with your driving. Something that if left uncorrected could cause you to have an accident later – or worse. Take the excellent advice given by the examiner and with your driving instructor, work on making it better. You will be on the road soon enough as a safe and confident driver.

      Nervous Pupils Are Very Welcome!

      Are You Feeling Nervous About Your Driving Lesson?

      There are many reasons why you may be nervous as a pupil and we understand this. Maybe it’s meeting your Driving Instructor for the first time – they are a stranger to you after all. You might be thinking “Will they shout at me if I get something wrong?” “Will I be ok as a pupil?” “Will I make a mistake?”

      nervous about driving

      We Driving Instructors are a happy bunch really and your instructor will call you for a chat before your first lesson to introduce themselves to you. They are used to meeting people for the first time and will put you at ease. Very soon, you will find yourself settling in and you’ll find they all have a relaxed and friendly approach to your lessons. If you read the feedback section of our website you will find testimonials from the growing number of students who can vouch for this. Like these pupils, you will soon be enjoying your lessons and be on your road to driving independently. Imagine yourself driving to college, work or to meet your friends without having to rely on others. You will be in your own car with the freedom to go where you want and when you want. Driving is fun and your lessons will be too, we promise!

      None of our instructors ever shout or ‘tell you off’, it is worrying how often pupils come to us saying this has been the case for some other schools. In fact, in most cases, they are not shouting, but rather telling – but this can come across as shouting. We use the latest coaching techniques that involve you in a two-way process in your lessons and never involve shouting or simply telling you. Yes, you will make mistakes, we all do, but we all learn more from our mistakes than we do from getting it right all the time. Your instructor will have dual controls for the rare (very rare) occasions that they might be needed. They will teach you how to be a safe and courteous driver and they will guide you properly, so you learn each lesson one bite at a time.

      We have helped literally thousands to pass their test and become better drivers

      How Many Driving Lessons You Will Need

      The REAL truth about how many driving lessons you will need – explained by Driving School Dave.

      One of the most common questions we are asked is How many driving lessons you will need to take the practical test? This is a very valid question but one that is very difficult to answer. That said, there are some definite guidelines and tips to reduce the amount you need without compromising your safety.

      How many driving lessons will I need?

      A quick search of the internet shows several websites quoting the Driver Vehicle and Standards Agency (DVSA) as 44, 45 and 47 depending on what website you look at. So the official guide is somewhere in the mid to high 40’s but hold on, don’t panic this is THE AVERAGE.

      An average is taking everybody who takes driving lessons. I have taught an elderly lady to drive. Her husband had died, and her long-term wish was to learn to drive. Her husband would not let her so now she was determined to learn. She took over 100 hours, each lesson making small but definite progress. Teaching this lady could fill another article but this was one exceptional case. Recently with 1st 4 Driving we have had 3 pupils passing 1st time with under 10 hours. This also extremely rare. The number can to some extent work on the younger you are the fewer lessons you might need. But I have found that it’s more about the capacity to learn and probably more important, your instructor’s ability to inspire and teach, more about this later.

      There is no minimum number on how many driving lessons you will need. Neither do you have to use a professional driving instructor for your driving lessons. On top of the 47 (44) hours of tuition the DVSA say is the average with a professional driving instructor, they suggest that a further 22 hours are taken as private practice. I’ve seen figures from the DVSA who suggest 95% of driving tests taken are in a professional driving school car. But you can take your test in your own or someone else’s car. There are some minimum requirements for this and insurance issues to consider but it’s very possible. To be more likely for a first-time pass, it’s likely only a driving instructor will know those oddities on test routes and current regulations and test procedures. These are often changing. This is also likely to reduce how many driving lessons you will need.

      One of the most important things is the length of driving lesson. Let’s use our DVSA figures as an example, remember it’s likely you’ll be a lot better than this and certainly will be if you follow the advice that follows.

      So, the DVSA say 47 hours of practical tuition to pass the test. If you had a one hour lesson every week and you and the instructor missed the odd week for holidays etc. it’s going to take you a year to pass the driving test, I am positive this is not what you’re looking for. This is one of the reasons why so many pupils move instructor. They feel they are just not making progress. Interestingly I was told at a conference by the DVSA some years ago the average pupil takes their 47 hours of tuition using an average of three driving instructors. Now there is an instant way to reduce this time and this is to take two-hour lessons.

      Why the two-hour lesson can reduce how many driving lessons you will need.

      Let’s consider how a driving lesson is structured (or should be)

      Normally when you are picked up for your lesson, there will be a 10-15-minute discussion on how you are and how the lesson went last week. You will discuss how you felt the driving lesson went last week and be asked about what YOU would like to achieve today. At the end of the driving lesson there will be an equal 10-15-minute discussion on how you felt things went, booking the next lesson and even maybe the payment to be sorted. This leaves just a 30-minute practice session in the middle.

      One-hour lesson

      How many driving lessons you will need 1 hour image

      Now consider the two-hour driving lesson. You have the same 10-15-minute sessions at the start and the end but, you have three x 30-minute practice lessons in the middle. You are getting 3 times the lesson for twice the price. There are also other benefits in this two-hour lesson in not so many gaps between driving lessons where you might forget some stuff. Certainly 2 hour driving lessons will reduce how many driving lessons you will need.

      Two-hour lessonHow many driving lessons you will need

      We find at 1st 4 Driving that we reduce the average from 47 hours to 30 hours taken as just 15 2 hour driving lessons. And remember this is the average still, you could do fewer. We sell a very popular all-inclusive 30 package including theory and practical test as we’re so confident that this works for the pupil. Certainly 2 hour driving lessons will reduce how many driving lessons you will need.

      Using this two-hour driving lesson option will considerably reduce not only how many driving lessons you will need but reduce the overall cost. Some pupils are concerned at a two-hour driving lesson each week because they feel it’s too expensive. I can see how this might seem. But in the long term you will save a considerable amount of money. When I delivered lessons and I tell my driving instructors now is, if a pupil can’t afford the two-hour driving lessons then suggest they do two-hours every two weeks. The length of time it will take them may not reduce but the cost will.

      How many driving lessons you will need is carved in stone. It’s a figure you will not know until you have passed but whatever the elusive figure is the advice given above will certainly stack the odds in your favour. There are other things you can do too, like choosing the right driving instructor. This is the subject of another article and is equally important.
