At UDrive with Andrew, I deliver client-centred driving lessons. This is a modern teaching approach that places the needs, goals, and preferences of the Learner (the Client) at the centre of the learning process. Using this method, I will tailor lessons to match your individual ability, learning style, and pace, ensuring a more effective and enjoyable learning experience.

Your first driving lesson is an exciting and important step towards learning how to drive. It’s normal to feel a mix of nervousness and anticipation, but with the right instructor and approach, it should be a positive experience. Here’s what you can expect from your first driving lessons with UDrive with Andrew.

Introduction and admin: We’ll have a chat! Nothing serious, just an opportunity to get to know each other a little bit before we get stuck into the lesson. We’ll also establish if you have any prior driving experience, this will help us agree on the starting point for your lessons, as well as agree on what you hope to achieve during the first lesson. You’ll need to bring your Driving License; this enables me to do a simple check to ensure everything is as it should be. You’ll also be required to carry out a simple eye sight test at this point, if you normally wear glasses or contacts then make sure you have them. We will also discuss the Total Drive App, and make sure you have read my Terms & Conditions, we will also discuss payment for the lesson at this time.

Get to know the vehicle: Before we get moving, we’ll have a short discussion about the vehicle. The cockpit drill is a short sequence of checks we carry out to ensure the car is ready for you to drive. You’ll also be shown the basic controls of the car, including the steering wheel, pedals, gears, handbrake, and indicators. It’s important in the first lesson to not overload you with too much information, I don’t want you to become overwhelmed and not remember anything.

Time to get moving: You’ll be introduced to the processes we will be using throughout your learning. When moving off safely, we use the Prepare-Observe-Move (POM) routine. When stopping at the side of the road, we use the Mirrors-Signal-Manoeuvre (MSM) routine. We will find somewhere quiet and safe to introduce these routines.

At the end of the lesson: Towards the end of the lesson, we will have a debrief where we will discuss what has been covered. This is an opportunity for both of us to reinforce what has been learnt, it will also help us establish the goal for the next lesson.

Remember that everyone learns at their own pace, so don’t worry if you don’t feel like a pro after the first lesson. With practice and guidance, your driving skills will improve over time. Enjoy the process, stay focused, and before you know it you will be ready for your driving test and a life-time of safe driving.
