During a typical lesson
To begin with, your driving instructor will base your lessons either on a new subject, or practicing and improving an existing skill you’ve learnt in previous lessons.
Therefore, every lesson (apart from your very first), will begin with a brief review of your previous lesson, and in summary, we will talk about what you’ve learnt. Subsequently, this will then decide what the new lesson will be on the day with a brief review from your instructor before you start to drive.
As with every introduction to a new subject, your instructor will explain to you in full and demonstrate how it’s done and if appropriate your turn to practice.
You will never be “thrown in at the deep end”, or be asked more than you are capable of doing. After the lesson has finished, your instructor will review and discuss how things went and then prepare for your next lesson.
We will teach you to focus on just one or two skills per lesson. That way you can remember those few skills and learn them quickly.
If we taught you to learn many skills during a lesson, you will remember little and it will take far longer to achieve them and you may end up feeling frustrated. (One of the reasons why intensive courses are not always the best way to learn).
As mentioned earlier, when you are first introduced to a new subject, your instructor will give you a full explanatory briefing. Once that has been completed, you will then practice, and be “talked through” what you are doing.
Once you are comfortable, the level of assistance that is given, will gradually be reduced, so that you are able to perform the activity with just “prompting and corrective assistance”. Eventually, that level of help will be reduced, as you’re able to demonstrate your ability to perform on your own, to “test standard”.
