Driving lesson prices
My Prices and why I charge them:
I appreciate that driving lessons are expensive. When pondering the price of a lesson there are a few things that you should bear in mind. Once you have checked the lesson price and block booking details I strongly recommend that you read the points of comparison. You may have to look a long way before finding someone to match them.
|Normal hourly lessons||£26 per hour|
|Refresher courses||£26 per hour|
|Motorway tuition||£62 for 2 hours because we use a lot of fuel on this lesson.|
Block booking lessons:
I am happy to take a block payment for lessons if it suits your convenience to pay that way but you must understand the following:
There is no discount available:
I have a couple of pupils who prefer to pay on a month ahead basis so that they know that their lessons are covered for the next month. If a similar arrangement, or anything similar, will suit your convenience then I am quite happy to go along with that. I keep accurate records in my diary and can easily provide a receipt if you wish.
The money is immediately refundable:
I totally respect the fact that the money paid in advance for outstanding lessons is your money. Should you so wish I will provide a full refund of the outstanding balance immediately.
I offer reasonable rates to all of my customers:
This enables my customers to benefit from the quality of tuition that is only available from a professional instructor in a comfortable environment.
The hourly rate that I charge is always in line with other quality driving schools in the area. If you wish to look around, the internet is a big place and I am absolutely certain that you will find a lower lesson price elsewhere.
I would offer the thought that they are not charging less because they want to, rather because they have to. You may be well served pondering 'why?' and find out more on this website before looking further.
The choice is yours!
Points of comparison
I am fully aware that you may have a row of browser tabs open, each containing a different driving instructor who claims to work the Nuneaton area.
To help you decide I have listed below a few points of comparison. I strongly suggest that you compare closely before choosing elsewhere.
Fully Qualified - I am, and have been since the dawn of the Millenium, but there are unqualified people on the road selling driving lessons.
Be very careful who you employ.
High Standards - Since they were first introduced I have happily been a recognised signatory to the driving instructors voluntary code of conduct which regulates how we advertise and fairly conduct business.
Many will not sign this!
- Full Lesson Time - You will receive the full amount of time that you have paid for!
- Course Framework - Your course is based upon your requirements, an accurate record and discussion, not guesswork.
Suitable Vehicle - I teach in a small car, currently a Toyota Aygo: small, manoeuverable and powerful enough. Similar in size to many of the vehicles that pupils will be looking at buying themselves when they have passed their test.
It makes a great deal of sense to learn in a car similar in size to the one which you are likely to drive.
- Suitable Learning Environment - The media system will be turned off and the interior does not resemble a shed.
No Interruptions - I have never sent or received a message or call whilst delivering a driving lesson. You are not paying me to conduct either business calls or my social life.
My time is yours!
No Passengers - All tuition is provided strictly on a one - to - one basis.
No back seat passengers allowed.
- No Shouting - I have never shouted at a pupil and you will not be the first.
- No Smoking - I do not smoke and neither does anyone else in my car.
Continuous Professional Development - I did not qualify all those years ago and think, 'Job done. Lets get some work in!' I have continually refined my teaching methods.
I am always considering ways to improve my tuition and regularly attend meetings with other driving instructors who share the same aim.
Refund Policy - The remaining balance of any money taken in advance for lessons will be refunded upon request without argument.
This has rarely happened (usually because of pregnancy or unemployment), but if it does, it is your money. No arguments!
