Effective private driving practice will not only help the learner to pass the driving test quicker but also save you a lot of money on driving lessons!

When I started my training to become a DVSA ADI I remember being surprised at just how much you had to think about when instructing pupils, both in the planning of lessons and what needed to be said and watched for during the lessons.

As an experienced driver who also had experience of training people in a previous career, I thought that I already knew what to say and do to teach someone to drive. However, I soon realised this was not the case and discovered just how easy it was to miss out on important, essential information or miss errors in the learner’s drive.

Now as an experienced Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor (Car) I have developed a structured course full of essential advice and information to enable you to help your son or daughter with their driving practice. Either as additional private practice to their driving lessons or even to teach from start to finish yourself!

It is this essential information and advice that I am now passing on to you through The Private Driving Practice Handbook available to you to download to your computer or mobile device (PDF).
