Want to Learn Safe Driving

When learning to drive, it pays to choose a driving school in Poole with an excellent track record, much like ours. If you’re looking to learn safe and efficient driving, we’ll instruct you with lessons delivered at a pace that suits you. That’s because some people take to driving quicker than others, so we don’t want to push you before you’re ready. 

Whether you’re a beginner looking to obtain your driver’s licence or refresh your driving skills, we’ll provide suitable tuition at fair and honest prices. 

We have a selection of course options available, such as the option to learn manual, which covers automatic, or just automatic. This is handy if you wish to learn how to drive but don’t wish to or plan on driving manual vehicles. Automatic courses are often quicker, which is useful if you need to learn to drive quickly, especially when taking intensive lessons. 

We have motorway lessons that instruct you how to drive safely and correctly on motorways among our specialised courses. We can teach you to drive in different environments and even help you brush up on your night-time driving. And we have intensive lessons for those who wish to or need to pass quickly. These lessons condense everything you need to know into a couple of weeks. 

So, as you can see, we cover all the bases for driving tuition. If you’d like to learn more about our lessons, don’t hesitate to contact our driving school in Poole by calling us on the number above.

Driving School Poole Can Trust 

To pass your driving test, you must satisfy the criteria set out by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The DVSA administers, conducts, and sets the standards required for learners to pass the driving test here in England. 

Our driving lessons follow the DVSA Driving Test Syllabus, so we offer a structured approach that assists students in acquiring the practical skills and necessary knowledge to satisfy the criteria. In short, we teach you everything you need to know to operate a Cat B vehicle legally and safely. It’s believed that road safety increases when drivers show a greater awareness of the dangers associated with driving. 

In turn, they develop an ability to assess, reflect, and analyse their driving, acknowledging areas for improvement and continually improving. To put students in this mindset, we adopt a client-centred approach to our lessons rather than an instructor-led approach adopted by so many other driving schools. 

Our instructors hold the most current client-centred driver training qualifications and are equipped to teach students in a manner that fits their differing learning styles. 

Under the DVSA Driving Test Syllabus, students will learn a variety of skills, including: 

  • Driver Cockpit Control 
  • Vehicle Controls 
  • Correct Use of Mirrors 
  • Moving Away Safely Main Road Driving 
  • Dual Carriageways 
  • And More

The Best Route for Driving Lessons in Poole 

It’s very easy to underestimate how much training will be needed when you’ve never sat behind the wheel before. After all, driving must seem quite easy when you’re sitting in the passenger seat. 

The DVSA recommends that a person receives 46 hours of professional tuition coupled with 22 hours of private practice to fully cover the syllabus. However, we’ve observed that some students are quite adept and can qualify in half the time, while others need longer. 

Therefore, it’s tough to say how long it’ll take each person to go from a complete novice to a qualified driver. But rest assured that we offer the best route for driving lessons in Poole, giving you every advantage that you could need. 

Every student begins with an introductory, two-hour assessment lesson. The purpose of this lesson is two-fold. One, it allows you to try our Poole driving school before committing to lessons full-time. And two, it allows the instructor to assess your abilities. At the end, they’ll be able to give you a rough idea of how many lessons you’ll need. 

Remember that we offer lessons in block plans, costing just £380 for a 10-hour block. Individual 1-hour lessons are priced at £40. So, whether you’re likely to pass after 46 hours of tuition or less, it’s recommended that you choose a block plan, as this will save you money and incentivise you to keep up with your lessons in a timely manner. 

How Do We Make Driving Lessons in Poole Easy?  

We make our driving lessons super easy by teaching students in a relaxed, welcoming environment. You’re never pressured to proceed at a pace that you’re uncomfortable with, and we’ll never suggest that you take your test before we feel that you’re ready. 

We’re here to help you prepare in any way we can, including your theory test. We’ll answer any questions, provide you with advice, and help familiarise you with all aspects of driving so you’re better prepared come test day. 

Also, before you take your practical test, you’ll need to answer a series of ‘Show Me Tell Me’ questions. This demonstrates that you understand basic car maintenance checks and road safety issues concerning your vehicle. Any questions answered incorrectly will be marked as a minor driving fault. 

You can view these questions along with their respective answers on our website. 

Why Choose Us?  

While there are many other driving schools to choose from in Poole, driving schools aren’t all made equal. Many still adopt the antiquated ‘instructor-led’ method of teaching students, which is more likely to decrease road safety. 

At Kingham’s Driving School, Steve and his team are committed to forging safe and responsible drivers through client-centred driver tuition. And we’re committed to providing students with an outstanding learning experience delivered in a relaxed and welcoming environment. 

Our driving instructors hold countless qualifications and are all highly experienced, having taught hundreds of students. We offer affordable driving tuition with an array of course options available, including: 

  • Manual and Automatic 
  • Intensive 
  • Pass Plus 
  • Taster 
  • Taxi 
  • Motorway
