John's Driving School Pass Rate

添ou Only Get What You Pay For

It is an expensive time learning to drive and most of us look for the best prices or bargin deals. As in any trade there are good one痴 and there are not so good one痴 and this is no different in the driver training industry.

ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) all have been tested by the DSA (driving standard agency) and issued with a green badge that should be displayed in the car. PDI (Provisional Driving Instructor) on the other hand whilst fully trained have not taken the final exam with the DSA and display a pink badge in the car. Here at John's School Of Motoring we support the use of PDI痴 for driver training but driving lesson students should be informed of their driving instructors status and charged at a reduced hourly rate if their instructor is a PDI. So what does this tell you, how does it help you to make your choice? In reality it only tells you if the driving instructor is qualified or not, it doesn稚 tell you how good he/she is at training you to drive.

How To Choose Your Driving School

One of the best ways to choose your driving instructor is by recommendation from family and friends, or asking the driving school about their pass rate statistics and if they use PDI痴. Then you can assess if they are value for money when comparing prices?
