Why you should try a private driving instructor if you are struggling with your lessons
If you have been having a family member or a friend teach you how to drive, or have been taking driving lessons in a group, you could very well be struggling.
After all, learning to drive is not easy. It is particularly not easy, though, if you are doing it in a group or if someone is teaching you that has not been trained to be an instructor themselves.
These and other reasons are why it is often better to hire private driving instructors to help you learn to drive. Especially if you are struggling.
Here are just a few reasons why.
Flexibility — One of the main reasons people like to hire a private driving instructor is due to flexibility. When you take classes with a group of people, you have to go along with the group and choose a time to learn that suits all of you.When you hire a private driving instructor, however, he will then schedule driving lessons around what is currently convenient for you.
A personalized lesson — If you are learning to drive in a group, you are never going to have a personalized lesson.
As everyone learns differently, and has different strengths and weaknesses, it makes sense to hire a private driving instructor so that you get a personalized lesson.
With such a lesson, you will be taught how to overcome your own weaknesses when driving, and will learn how to use your strengths. You will also have classes that are tailored to your skills, and continue to be as you drive longer and improve.
Less stressful – It is already stressful learning how to drive, without having several people watching you do it.
Hiring a private driving instructor allows you to learn just one-on-one, and without an audience taking note of your every mistake. Due to this, you will usually find your lessons become far less stressful, and you begin to enjoy them more.
More driving time — You will only learn how to drive well by getting a lot of practice. If you are learning in a group, though, this is just about impossible as everyone has to take a turn. Hire a private driving instructor and you will suddenly find yourself with a lot more learning time available.
This is also the same if you are being taught by a family member or friend. After all, you may find that much of the time the person does not have the free time available to teach you properly. Thus, it takes you much longer to learn how to drive, and is a much longer amount of time before you are ready to take your test.
Learning how to drive with a private driving instructor is generally more relaxing, more fun and, if you want to learn quickly so you can pass your test, just about guaranteed to allow you to do that.
Why not hire a private driving instructor for three or four lessons, and see how much you enjoy it?
