Why learn to drive with DSL?
3 POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR
1) IS YOUR INSTRUCTOR QUALIFIED? Many well known driving schools use trainee driving instructors (also known as PDI Potential Driving Instructors), and are charging the same for lessons as qualified instructors (ADI Approved Driving Instructors).
All ADIs must display a licence, ask to see it.
2) KNOW YOUR INSTRUCTORS GRADE All ADIs are tested and graded on their instructional ability and are graded from 6-1
The meanings of these grades are as follows:
6. Very high standard, no significant instructional weaknesses
5. Good overall standard of instruction, some minor weakness in instructional technique
4. Competent overall performance, some minor deficiencies in instructional technique
3. Inadequate overall performance, some deficiencies in instructional technique
2. Poor overall performance, numerous deficiencies in instructional technique
1. Overall standard of instruction extremely poor or dangerous, with incorrect or dangerous instruction

3) QUALITY VERSUS QUANTITY
• Offering cheap lessons...Why?
• 20 Quality Lessons with a fully qualified instructor @£25 = £500
50 low quality lessons with a low graded or unqualified instructor @£15 = £750
Which would you prefer?
• If it sounds too good to be true.....it usually is!!
