Choosing a Driving School Powered By Docstoc
					Everyone needs to learn to drive these days, but parents are often so busy they don't
have the time to teach their teenagers how to drive. In any case, it is much better for
them to get lessons from a professional driving instructor. Then they won't pick up the
bad driving habits that their parents or other teacher might possess.
So how do you choose a good driving school? Expense is always a consideration, but
paying extra for good quality lessons is a better alternative than allowing your teens to
learn from someone who is either not qualified or does not have good communication
skills, just because they offer cheaper rates.
So in the hunt for a good driving school you will need to phone for an appointment
and conduct an interview with the driving instructor who will be assigned to your
teenager - or whoever is going to learn to drive. They need to have a pleasant manner
when giving driving lessons yet enough authority that a teenager will listen and take
note of what they are saying.
The driving instructor also needs to be able to put a young learner at ease and instil
confidence, since many teens worry about making fools of themselves. If a driving
instructor starts to yell at the learner driver for some silly mistake, he is not the right
teacher for anyone.
You also need to know that the driving school has the correct insurance and cars with
dual steering just in case your teen should get into a situation that makes them panic.
Some driving schools simply use your family car for lessons. While this does get the
learner used to driving their own car, it is really not the best solution.
For a start, you have to take them to the driving school and then you will be without a
car while the lesson is in progress. So you'll have to wait around until they return,
which is a waste of your valuable time. So a driving school that supplies its own cars
is really the best option.
