Driving lessons aren't just about passing your driving test; they are also about learning a skill that will keep you safe on the road for a lifetime. Learning to drive with us at Hawkwell Driving School will give you the very best start to your driving career.
The accident statistics (See the BRAKE website for more details) for young drivers are sombre reading, yet all these drivers passed a driving test. The driving test, however, only takes a snapshot of the candidates abilty for just 40 minutes, and can only evaluate what happens during that time.
What we believe will keep you safe, and is taught by Alan throughout your lessons is defensive driving, advanced hazard perception, and pro-active methods of dealing with situations on the road. Many driving schools, due to the inexperience of their instructors, still teach reactive methods, only responding to someone else's action rather than anticipating and being prepared for what they are going to do next
Not all driving schools are the same, and not all driving instructors have the ability to teach you the essentials skills to keep you safe!
