Why BLANDFORD Learner Drivers

Chose Independent Driving School

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Ashley Light, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was when I noticed other people’s good reviews and decided to go with them.

My driving instructor was Matt Hitt. It was only last year in September when I wanted to progress and get more independent that I came to Independent Driving School and got given Matt. I’m proud to say I made the right decision.

He was very flexible working around my difficult work pattern and catered to what I was after. A very friendly supportive guy I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive any day. 

If he noticed any mistake, he will guide you through it so it don’t happen a second time… I don’t think I can come up with anything that can be improved really.

I would like to thank Matt for being patient and supportive when it comes to learning to drive.”

Alastair Smith, Taunton.

Liberty Nicholls, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because my mum researched the lessons for me.

I had Chrissy who was a fantastic instructor! I started my lessons with little confidence as a complete beginner – however by the end of my lessons was completely self-aware and confident!

Even in times of self-doubt, she was there to support and motivate in the right direction (literally haha).

Such a great company, with competent and friendly instructors who want to see you succeed in becoming a safe and happy driver.”

Debbie Kwong, Taunton

Tom Kennet, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because I found them by using Google for the top driving schools in Bournemouth as I was new to the area.
I liked the look of the independent driving school so I went with them for my lessons whilst I was at university. Which I’m so glad I did as I was able to pass first time, my instructor Darren (who I highly recommend) was amazing and helped me to become more confident with hill starts and driving on dual carriageways.
The advice I would offer someone learning to drive or thinking of taking their driving test is make sure you are comfortable with the car and the instructor as it will make the learning experience more enjoyable.
There is also no rush to take your test but when you do make sure you trust your own driving skills and are comfortable on the road.”

Yes we do.

How many lessons a week do you recommend?

We find that taking a 2-hour lesson every week, proves to be the most successful strategy for most students or 90 minutes. You will learn far more for your money and you will also be test ready sooner. You will have a decent amount of condensed learning in one go with time to digest and be focused for your next lesson. Sometimes students think that they would be unable to concentrate for a period of two hours, but this is why we would ‘chunk’ your lessons and break up the two hour slot to cover several topics, just as they do in the school curriculum to keep the learning fresh and focused.

Taking a regular weekly lesson has proven success as it provides continuity, the retention of knowledge and it will reduce your learning period. We will aim to offer you a regular lesson slot that you can book in advance and keep from the time you commence your lessons until you pass your test.

 

You will also be able to book more than one lesson slot per week should you wish to reduce your learning period and be test ready sooner. (Subject to instructor availability)

 

Do you offer lessons at weekends or just during the week?

Yes, we do offer lessons on the weekends, but they are extremely popular and subject to availability.

How many lessons do you think I will need?

It’s almost impossible to know until you begin your tuition.

 The DVSA suggest that the average is around 46 hours, but we find that most of our students are test ready much sooner. It really does depend on the individual, but our recommendation is to book ten hours of lessons and once completed, you will have a much better idea of the number of lessons you will need.

 

Do you come to me or do I have to come to you?

We will always pick you up at your preferred location. That could be from College, your home, work or anywhere else you choose. We will also drop you off at your preferred location.

Do you have female instructors?

Yes we do have female instructors.

How long is the waiting list?

It really depends on when you would be available to take your lessons.

If you would like to contact us by using one of the methods towards the top of this website with the days and times you are available, we will check and get back to you ASAP.

How come you are more expensive than others?

That is a very good question.

Most people wrongly assume that all driving instructors are the same!

I have produced several videos on this website to help you make the correct decision, avoid the costly mistakes and to avoid being one of the 30% of local learners that feel the need to change their driving instructor before test day.

 Please check out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Driving Instructor’. You will be glad that you did!

Do you teach people with learning difficulties?

Yes, we do but it will depend on the circumstances.

Our instructors do not pretend to be experts, some of them have experience with certain disabilities. The best advice I can give is to contact our customer services and discuss your requirements, so they can attempt to match a suitable instructor.

 

 

 

What is your 1st time pass rate?

We are very proud of our 1st time pass rate and our instructors deserve a lot of credit for their hard work. It’s impossible to give the exact % as we have tests almost every day and it will continually change.

 Checking out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Instructor’ will help you make the correct decision and avoid the costly mistakes that force over 30% of all local learners to change their instructor before reaching test day.

    If you’re looking for a Professional Driving School that comes highly recommended with a particularly high first time pass rate we are the school for you. Independent Driving serves the county of Dorset bringing you the highly trained driving instructors you need to pass your practical driving test.

    Our instructors are male or female with a wide variety of levels of experience, however all bring the very latest techniques & methods to the table. Our highly popular “try us & see” service gives learner drivers the opportunity to see if we are suitable for their needs before booking additional lessons.

    Like many other instructors, we also provide discounts for beginners & new students & we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not entirely happy with our service. We also offer large discounts for block bookings of 10 lessons or more.

    As mentioned in our opening paragraph we are particularly proud of our first time pass rate which is considerably above the national average. What is our secret? We have a proven system that ensures that our driving instructors follow our best practice guidelines & procedures.

    Our structured system will feature a complete plan of action broken down for you so you can see where you are up to with regard to your progress within the driving school syllabus & what you need to do to get to the level where you are ready to take your test.

    We do encourage practice with family & friends provided it is used in a way that will assist & improve your driving abilities ready for your next lessons. Ideally you would practice the areas that have been highlighted for you on your reflective log so to reduce the length of time you need to cover them in your actual lessons.

    For example if you are struggling with your bay park manoeuvre then it would make sense to go somewhere quiet & practice as often as you can whilst out with friends & family. Once you can demonstrate you are able to carry out the procedure confidently & error free then your instructor will then move you on to the next step of the syllabus.

    However if your instructor thinks you need more practice you will continue where you left off until you have mastered it. This example demonstrates the importance of using your practice time wisely.

    You should ensure that you complete your theory examination as quickly as possible. This will benefit you as it gives you a better understanding of the practical side. It will also allow for your instructor to book you in for your test as soon as you are ready without any unnecessary delays.
