lf you live in Woodford Green, Loughton and surrounding areas and you are thinking of learning to drive or you are already taking driving lessons but becoming frustrated, Why not join a driving school that is totally focused on Customer Success where you will benefit from the latest and proven teaching methods.
You don’t have to take our word for it , read our customer reviews from customers after taking their driving lessons with us. Driving Lessons in should be an enjoyable and straight forward process when following a structured course of lessons.
It is vital that each of your driving lessons has a definite objective and you clearly understand exactly what you are trying to achieve during the lesson. Far too many driving lessons consist of aimless driving around with no definite purpose or objective. When you make a mistake with your driving it is imperative that you understand exactly what the mistake is, how you can fix it and why it occurred. This is not rocket science but many driving instructors fail to follow these simple but very effective guidelines. Important Note: If you do not have a definite objective for each of your driving lessons, then your learning period will almost certainly take you longer and cost you more of your hard earned money.
We pride ourselves on the amount of positive Customer Reviews that we receive many praising our teaching methods. To think all driving instructors are the same would be a huge mistake as many teach with no clear objectives and therefore extending your learning period and costing you more money than is necessary.
If you are currently learning to drive and do not have a very clear objective at the beginning of each lesson then how can you possible understand what is expected of you during the driving lesson.
You are more than welcome to join us here at Drive Essentials Driving School where you can join other satisfied local students that have passed their driving tests with us.
I wish you happy and successful driving, best wishes from all the team here at Drive Essentials Driving School.

8 Proven Success Steps to a 1st Time Pass.
No 1. Be Consistent With Your Driving Lessons.
Endeavour to take a weekly driving lesson. Those students that take regular driving lessons learn SO much faster than those that are irregular. If possible commit to two hour driving lessons, You will learn far more and far faster. One hour driving lessons WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY. By the time you have a recap on your previous lesson and then drive to the training area to practice the chosen objective, you may have already used 15 minutes of your lesson. There should then be a summary when you finish to confirm what you have learnt, this will take another 5 minutes = That’s 20 minutes of your 60 minute lesson.
NO.2. Be Prepared For Your Driving Lessons It’s Your Driving Lesson!
Make The Most Of It. Being in the right frame of mind will give the best value for your money. Also!!!!!! Actually being conscious, is defiantly a MAJOR plus.
No 3. Your Driving Lessons should always begin with a recap of your previous lesson.
Please don’t underestimate this very important point. Your driving instructor should be asking you questions at this stage to confirm your understanding of previous learning and to test your knowledge on the next subject. Your practical driving practice will be far less effective if you do not fully understand the theory of the subject and mistakes can be made through lack of knowledge.
No 4. The Lessons Objective. Possibly, the most important element to your progress.
Trust me , without a firm objective, your larding period will be greatly increased. It is absolutely vital that EVERY lesson has a definite objective. You must understand what will be covered in the current lesson and how it will move you forward towards your goal. Driving aimlessly around is a complete waste of your hard earned money.
NO 5. Your driving Lessons should be structured and you should be encouraged to develop your skills.
Your Lessons should follow a structured path from very easy at the beginning and then increase in complexity as you progress. Your instructor should be encouraging you to develop by asking you relevant questions to check your understanding. This is a very important procedure as responsibility is gradually transferred to you.
NO 6. Summary of Your driving Lesson.
What you discuss at the end of your lesson, will compound the retention of that newly gained knowledge and understanding.
NO 7. Self Evaluate.
Be Confident and be Ready. Be honest with yourself! Are you still making mistakes during your lessons? Many students fail their driving tests because they are not driving consistently before they go to test. Arriving for your practical driving test knowing that you are lacking in confidence due to inconsistent driving will just add to the anxiety and many will blame nerves “on the day” but in reality it’s generally down to lack of consistency in the build up to test day. *
NO 8. Listen to the Advice of Your Driving Instructor.
Instructors are highly trained and experienced at assessing when you are ready for your driving test, you are paying for professional advice - So it would be wise to listen to it.
To think that all driving instructors or driving school are the same would be a massive mistake.

We offer a “Customer Success ” approach to learning to drive to maximise your chances of a first time pass. All of your driving lessons should have a definite purpose and crystal clear objective, so you know exactly what you are trying to achieve and how it will help you towards your goal of a gaining a full driving license. Far to many driving lessons involve aimless “driving around” ,this may sound familiar if you are already taking lessons and feel you are not progressing.
We find that when pupils are offered a full and detailed explanation of the task required it makes it real easy for our pupils to understand and move forward. We also find that “chunking” driving lessons works really well. This is where we can set a mini objective for , lets say 20 minutes and then focus on the required task with help,assistance and good targeted questions to constantly check the pupils thinking. After each lesson “chunk” we then know exactly whether further practice is required or we can move on to the next step.
It is essential that you the pupil ,knows exactly why you are requested to do something and the possible consequences of not doing it and how it may affect others around you. It may all sound a little complicated but it couldn’t be further from the truth.
If you are thinking of learning to drive or you are already taking driving lessons but becoming frustrated, now is your chance to join a driving school that is very much focused on Customer Success and to benefit from the latest and proven teaching methods.
