Q: Do we do 'Pass Plus'?
A: Yes we do. If you are unsure of what 'Pass Plus' is, and would like to know how you can save money on your insurance, Please Click Here.
Q: What's your pass rate?
A: Our pass rate well exceeds the national average, and is above that of our competitors. Our experience has shown us if a pupil listens to his / her driving instructor, and practice's what he / she has been taught there is no reason why they should not pass their driving test first time. All our driving instructors are highly experienced. Their aim is to get you through your driving test with the minimum amount of lessons, but also making sure you have acquired the skills to be safe on the road.
Q: What is the Show me Tell me questions on the driving test?
A: The show me / tell me is a series of questions asked by the examiner at the start of your practical test. Please click the link for a list of the questions, and answers you may be asked. Show Me Tell Me.
Q: What type of cars do you use?
A: We have various makes of cars ranging from Peugeot, Ford Focus, Renault and Fiesta's. All our cars are fitted with air conditioning, anti lock braking system, and powered steering, all the mod cons you would expect from a new car. Most of our cars are less than a year old, contributing to an all round better driving experience. We have a different array of cars because we have found pupils prefer a choice, also some pupils like to learn in a car they intend to get after they pass their practical driving test.
Q: Can I have more than one lesson a week?
A: Yes, We will try and fit you in for as many driving lesson as you require in a week. You're the customer, and we will try to accommodate you the best we can.
Q: Can I start driving lessons before I've passed my theory test?
A: Yes, having driving lessons will actually help you with your theory. Your driving instructor will also help you with preparing for your theory test. Please Click Here for more information.
Q: Can you book the theory test for me?
A: Yes, but there is a small administration charge, and we will require the test fee in advance, but this could be easily passed on via your driving instructor.
Q: Can you book the practical test for me?
A: Usually yes. There is an administration charge, but we can obtain early test dates. The test fee will be required in advance, and can be passed easily via your driving instructor.
Q: Do you have automatic cars?
A: Sorry no, but if you have your own automatic car, we are more than happy to teach you in that.
Q: Do you work weekends?
A: Yes. Most of our driving instructors work at least one day at the weekend. We do not charge a premium for driving lessons at the weekend.
Q: Are there any other pupils in the car?
A: Definitely not. All our driving lessons are on a 1 to 1 basis, and for a full hour. You will never have part of your lesson time taken up dropping a previous pupil off, or picking one up on your lesson time.
Q: Can I do Intensive lessons?
A: At Access driving tuition we do what is referred to as a semi-intensive driving course. This is where the pupil has an assessment driving lessons to see how many driving lessons would be required to reach test standard, and providing the theory test has been passed by the pupil we can book the driving test, then the pupil puts in the driving lessons running up to the test. Because there is usually a waiting time from booking the test to taking the driving test, probably about 3/4 weeks. Semi-intensives are a little less demanding than a full blown intensive. You can also take advantage of the block booking discount if doing a semi-intensive. If a semi-intensive is the route you want to go then you need to book an assessment driving lesson. If you still want the full blown intensive driving course over a 3, 5 or 10 day period, which are ideal if you just want to get it done, and out the way, then please visit our sister website by clicking on this link Access Direct (Leicestershire No 1 Intensive Course Specialist). Either way you will be well looked after, and on the road in no time.
Q: Can I be picked up and dropped off in a different place?
A: Yes, this is not a problem.
Q: Are the instructors friendly and patient?
A: Yes, it is one of the main qualities we look for, and insist upon before recruiting a new driving instructor. We not only want you to learn to drive quickly and safely, we want you to enjoy your driving lessons.
Q: How many driving lessons will I need?
A: I am asked this question more than any other, and it is always the hardest one to answer. How many driving lessons you will need depends on many factors, your experience, age, working background, even your attitude. I have known people only take 8 driving lessons, and then some people take 80 driving lessons. The driving standards agency (DSA) which is the governing body which conducts the driving test say it is about 45 hours for a new driver, but as I said there are a lot of factors which will reduce this. At Access driving tuition we will try to get you to reach driving test standard in the minimum amount of safe driving lessons, this not only reduces your tuition cost, but it improves Access Driving Tuition's reputation.
