SO NOW YOU ARE READY TO START YOUR DRIVER TRAINING!
I am based in the Eastbourne area, but will travel as far as Brighton. This is dependent on how many lessons are booked in that area on the day. I will always try to accomodate you, so request a call back and we can talk through a lesson plan to suit your needs.
As safety breeds confidence, my vehicle is fitted with dual controls.They allow me to intervene if a problem occurs but allow you, from the start, to take proper control of the vehicle in a safe and relaxed environment.
During the first appointment, I suggest we look at vehicle familiarisation and basic car control using quiet residential side roads, in order to build confidence and progress at a pace which suits you, the client. Our common goal is for you to achieve "Safe Driving for Life" and not just simply to pass the driving test. For your convenience, appointments can start / finish at home, college, work or other suitable, mutually agreed location.
Duty of Care: client safety is of paramount importance and that applies equally to all other road users during driving tuition, however, this responsibility extends to the period immediately before and after appointments. To this end, I reserve the right to determine the suitability of start and finish locations, especially after dark during the winter months.
It is customary to begin and end at home and/or a regular place of work, but sometimes for convenience, I am asked to terminate the lesson somewhere different. I rarely have any objections to this, provided the location is deemed to be both public and safe, such as a town centre or rail station, in which case, under 18s are asked to make this known beforehand, to their parents or guardian.
