I took my driving lessons with Rob and had was an amazing instructor who was always helpful and went out of his way to help me. I would definitely recommend Rob Gould Driver Training to anyone.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete beginner or maybe you want some help in general with your driving. We can tailor a driving course to suit your needs and circumstances. Just simply get in touch.
Rob Gould Driver Training have 2 main aims, our first and primary aim is to make sure that you’re a safe driver and our second aim is to help you pass your driving test. The driving test is just a measure of your driving ability, checking to make sure you are a safe driver.
On your first driving lesson, we will get you driving, and over the course of your next couple of lessons you’ll be learning the foundations to safe driving for life and and all the best practices. We will ask that on each of your driving lessons that you use these foundations because they will not only make you safe but also help turn you into a natural, stress free driver – making driving fun!
Indeed driving can be a lot of fun but many people get stressed. But we will show you how to drive in a hassle free environment, and even on your first driving lesson you will be loving it.
Warning only approximately 47% of learner drivers pass first their driving test time.
Most driving instructors will tell you that is does not matter if you fail first time, and while they are correct it’s not the news you want to hear. You want to be going into your driving test with every opportunity of passing first time, after all, you are paying for professional driving lessons so it is only fair you go into your driving test with every chance of passing first time. The main reason why only 1 in 4 will pass their driving test first time is because they are not ready.
If you want to stand a better chance of passing your driving test first time then get in touch.
This is a course for learner drivers who have already started taking driving lessons with either another driving school or privately perhaps with friends or a member of the family. It may be that you’re more developed than a beginner and therefore don’t need to start from scratch.
Tell Us About Your Experience
When you first contact us, We’ll ask you some questions about any previous driving experience and ask you about some of the things you have already done. Some people stop learning to drive because they may have had a bad experience with their previous driving instructor. Or it may be that you just had a bad experience overall and have stopped driving for a while but now want to start up again. Once we’ve established where you are with your driving, we can then start to put a plan and strategy together to help you work towards your driving test. Everyone is different and all lessons are personal to you, by formulating a plan for you and having a structure it helps you to learn in fewer lessons., therefore saving you time and money.
Your First Driving Lesson
When you first meet your driving instructor, due to the phone call we would have had together, our instructor will have a rough idea of what you can do so maybe a small evaluation lesson may be a good idea. This will show your instructor what you’re good at and as mentioned earlier, it will help your instructor to create a plan for you so you can concentrate on any areas of development.
At the end of this driving lesson, you will have leaned some new skills, improved your current skills and will have a development plan charting your way to becoming a safe driver in order to pass the driving test.
This is a course for drivers who may suffer from a lack of confidence when it comes to driving. The aim of this short course is not to pass your driving test as you may have already passed, albeit, it may have been some time ago? Our aim is to purely help you to develop the skills and re-gain the confidence you need to feel comfortable driving again.
It may be that you feel anxious driving in traffic or perhaps on motorways and dread doing a long journey. Whatever your reasons are for wanting to do a confidence course, the hardest step is to make that first phone call to us. Once you meet with your instructor, you can talk about any anxieties or fears you have and you both can then get to work to formulate a plan which will help you to regain that confidence again.
Some background information
Anxiety affects many millions of people and it can stand in the way of your dreams and ambitions, it can make every day a living hell for some and at best hold people back and limit their possibilities. In fact anxiety and stress is now one of the most important health problems according the World Health Organisation.
Another fact for you, it is now suspected that up to 80% of illness is started through stress. a stressed mind creates a stressed body , too much stress affects the immune system and the body can start to break down. If you’re stressed or anxious whilst driving then your brain and body can just simply shut down, this can have catastrophic consequences, especially if you’re travelling on busy roads.
A survey of UK drivers recently discovered that as much as 70% of drivers had lost concentration whilst driving due to stress. We will work together to calm your anxious mind and re-gain your confidence so you will feel comfortable in all driving conditions.
So, you’ve failed your driving test? You feel gutted, you feel devastated and you may even feel embarrassed? “Have you considered that might not have been your fault? If you have been repeatedly failing driving tests you have probably started to doubt yourself with thoughts like, are you good enough, and will you ever be able to pass the test? It can be quite disheartening and as controversial as this sounds but the truth why you’re failing driving test could be down to the training you received was not adequate.
Not only repeatedly failing your test is devastating for you, but it’s also expensive too.
The Driving Test Rescue Course Explained…
Our first job is to have a quick consultation period with you and then a bit of a drive. By listening to you and observing you on a short assessment drive, your instructor will quickly be able to get to the route of the matter of why you’re failing and what has been going wrong for you and how to fix the problem.
The assessment drive is just that, it’s not a test so the pressure is totally off and if anything only what you have been taught is under scrutiny, you are not. Your instructor will be looking at the areas where you excel and the areas that need further development and could comprise of technical ability, understanding, confidence and anticipation. Once we’ve assessed your driving, we can then work on a plan for you to help you to start putting things right.
Every time you fail a driving test it costs you in the region of £300 to include a new test, the hire of the car and instructors time and also the remedial lessons. So now is the time to put this right. Let’s get you through your next test.
In order to book and take your driving test, you first have to pass your theory test. It’s recommended that you take driving lessons with a professional driving school such as Rob Gould Driver Training. It’s very unlikely that you can just have a few lessons with someone who is not a driving instructor and then go on to pass both the theory test and then the driving test. By taking lessons with a professional driving school ensures that you learn quickly and more importantly, understand what’s required. This will save you money in the long run. Have a look at the videos below to give you an idea of how both the theory test and the driving test are conducted.
