How To Choose An Appropriate Driving Instructor

                Once you have reached the legal age to start learning to drive or even if you are of a more mature age and decided to take up driving later on in life, the importance in choosing the right driving instructor remains equally as important. You can contract the services of a driving instructor using their vehicle to teach you to drive or alternatively an appropriately qualified individual whom you can trust will provide you with the correct information about driving on a public road. It's also important that they can instruct you in the correct manner without passing on their bad driving which they may have acquired during their driving history.
                A qualified driving instructor may prove to be a better option as they are professionally trained and teach to an adequate standard which a driving examiner would expect to find in any potential new motorist if they are to pass their driving test. These standards relate to road safety, knowledge of the Highway Code, being courteous and demonstrating correct control over the vehicle at all times whilst of course respecting the law.

                    Finding a qualified driving instructor is not too hard as most towns have a local driving instructor and many times word of mouth and recommendation is the best way to find one, however, if this is not the case, then there are a number of qualifications to look out for such as:

                   Are they ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) Qualified - A fully qualified ADI Instructor MUST display their ADI green card on the windscreen, there is also a pink cards which relate to driving instructor trainees, either way, these credentials MUST be displayed. If neither of these cards are on display; it is advisable to ask the instructor to show you their card, if they are not able to do so, and they claim to be ADI qualified, you can report this to the DSA as they are the governing body in charge of ADI licensing. In order to obtain an ADI license, the candidate has to pass a rigorous theory test as well as a being able to pass a test in which they can demonstrate that they are capable to giving out instructions as well as having passed a criminal check. In addition to this, they have to demonstrate on a regular basis that their standards are up to scratch at all times.

                  It is important that you feel comfortable with your driving instructor or the person who is teaching you to drive, people have different preferences in the way in which they learn and the way in which they receive instructions, perhaps to err on the side of caution, it may be better to pay for one or two lessons to start off with rather than for a whole block only to find that you don't get on with your instructor or find his methods of teaching not satisfactory.
