Driving Lessons in Bromley and Orpington
How can we help you to learn to drive?
Learning to drive can be difficult. You need to:
- gain the skills to control your vehicle
- acquire the experience and knowledge to interpret correctly what you see on the road
- anticipate the behaviour of others
- have the competence and confidence to act appropriately
To help you achieve safe driving for life, we will provide a professional, friendly and supportive environment. Your driving lessons will be planned in advance and will be based on your rate of progress and your areas of strength and weakness.
You will be taught how to drive in urban environments as well as on country roads. We will teach you how to manoeuvre your car in order to turn it around and to reverse park. You will also practice the best way to perform an emergency stop.
We like to use visual aids when teaching because experience has shown that people learn faster when they are used. They explain new subject matters and demonstrate driving situations that arise during the course of the lesson.
Preparing you for the test
To prepare you for the practical driving test, we introduce ‘mock’ driving tests which will be as close as possible to the real thing. We may even ask you two of the show me/tell me questions you will be given on the test. All possible show me/tell me questions and answers, including a photo of under the bonnet, can be viewed here.
These mocks will usually be given by your instructor but, for even closer test conditions, we can also offer another Right Gear instructor to undertake the test.
We have extensive local knowledge which is critical to tackle the test with confidence and improve your overall likelihood of success.
Once you have passed
What is it? New drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in an accident than more experienced drivers. This is because they have yet to experience all different forms of driving in a variety of weather conditions. For this reason the DSA have introduced the Pass Plus scheme for new drivers.
What will I learn?
This programme covers driving on motorways, dual carriageways, out of town roads, town driving, all weather conditions and night driving. On successful completion of this course you will gain greater knowledge and experience of these topics in a safe environment. However, the benefits don’t stop there; you can also enjoy significant savings on your car insurance.
Refresher Driving Lessons
We offer refresher driving lessons for full licence holders that are tailored to your needs. You may not get the opportunity to drive regularly or may wish to gain greater experience of aspects in your driving such as motorways, country roads or parking. If this is the case, we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your driving and propose a customised solution.
So, if you’re based in any of the following areas and are looking for driving lessons from experienced driving instructors, Right Gear Driving is a local driving school with a fantastic pass rate and very patient, reliable instructors.
