How much should a driving instructor charge for driving lessons?
The price of a driving lesson is only one of the factors that you should consider when making your choice of driving instructor. It’s not like buying a new pair of jeans where several retailers will all have the same product and you just shop around for the best deal.
Driving instructors cannot be compared like for like. They may drive around in similar tution vehicles but the instruction they give can vary enormously. Some Driving Instructors once qualified never take any additional training to keep up with new developements. Can you imagine a Doctor or Nurse never taking further training?
Other Driving Instructors take part in CPD which is continued professional developement, this ensures that they are at the forefront of the many changes taking place within the industry.
People often look for a “good and cheap” Instructor. Unfortunately the two rarely go together as many have found to their cost, but only after wasting hundreds of pounds.
Value for money
There are Driving Instructors who are reliable, have first class teaching skills, years of experience, high pass rates and many satisfied customers. This type of Instructor stays busy for a very good reason. Not because they are the cheapest in town but because their customers learn in fewer lessons and benefit from top teaching skills.
On the other hand some Driving Instructors still teach old methods and have poor customer service skills.
