Your 1st Lesson Pre 17yrs Old - Off Road Tuition

Your 1st Driving Lesson is one of the most important days of your life.

Usually you will be learning to drive off-road because you are not 17yrs old yet. This is an excellent way of learning the basic controls of the car, moving off and stopping, turning left and right and gear changing.

 Provided you can depress the pedals comfortably you are welcome to have an off-road lesson however realistically these lessons are aimed at 16yr olds to gain control before experiencing the road.

An off-road lesson is a fantastic way for very nervous people to have a go in an area free of any cars, with no pressure of other road users.

At Select we are able to offer excellent off-road training facilities in conjunction with Dunvant RFC in Swansea,( in other areas across our coverage we access to other facilities). We promise this will be an enjoyable moment and one which will encourage you to progress with ease as soon as you reach the legal age to drive on the road of 17yrs. 

It is very natural to be nervous before your 1st Lesson, many people think they will be the worst driver in the world but you will be pleasantly surprised by the end.

Our Instructors will make you feel safe and understand the controls of the car. Rest assured should you do anything slightly wrong all our cars are dual-controlled for your safety and our Instructors are highly trained in using them if required.

For further information on off-road tuition please

Don't forget you do not need to have a provisional licence for off-road tuition, however you must have one to drive on the road.

Your 1st Lesson back in the Driving seat for sometime - What to expect !!

Your not alone! Many people start learning to drive and for one reason or another stop and start back up several years later.

This can be for all sorts of reasons, some people find motivation limited at 17yrs of age, perhaps off to University in a short while and won't need a car or simply a change of financial situations or for starting a family.

"I've forgotten everything, I'll have to start all over again"

Very doubtful. Our instructors are experienced in refreshing your mind on what you've learnt in the past. It won't take you nowhere near as long as you think.

Want to change your current instructor/driving school?

This is not a problem at all. Many pupils come to us from other driving schools for numerous reasons. Personality clashes can occasionally happen, disagreements with instructors have been known or simply you just don't feel comfortable with the current person who teaches you.

This does not happen at Select School of Motoring!!

Our Instructors are chosen for their patience, professionalism, tact and excellent teaching ability. You will not experience any of the above issues with our instructors. We are the fastest growing driving school in the area for a reason, we simply do things right and pass you as soon as possible.

"I don't really want to change my instructor as I will have to start all over again"

No. Our instructors are experienced in assessing your ability, diagnosing any faults and will give you a clear plan of how long it will take you to pass the Practical Driving Test. It really isn't a major issue to change your current instructor.

"I don't know how to tell my current instructor I want to change"

Lessons simply aren't cheap. If you are not happy with the way your instructor conducts the lesson you are throwing your money away because you will not be able to concentrate fully and it will take you far longer to pass your test. Be brave, phone them and simply explain you would like to try someone else.

"Why should I come to you, could I be throwing everything away I've learnt so far"

£6.99 and 1.5hrs of your time is all we ask. That is sufficient for you to understand the way we do things here at Select School of Motoring and we are extremely confident you will stay with us and pass your test with flying colours. £6.99 - what have you got to lose. Phone us today.

Recently failed a Practical Driving Test or perhaps 4 tests. Perhaps it's time for a change of Instructor.

This is not a problem at all. Many pupils come to us having failed a test or tests with another driving school.

Sometimes a fresh approach is all it needs to give you that extra momentum to pass the practical driving test. If you've been with your current instructor for what seems eternity, lessons can become mundane and you may feel that you are not learning anything anymore.

This is not true as learning to drive never stops. Nobody is perfect and there is always room for improvement.

"I don't really want to change my instructor as I will have to start all over again"

No. Our instructors are experienced in assessing your ability, diagnosing any faults and will give you a clear plan of how to overcome these in order for you to pass the Practical Driving Test. It really isn't a major issue to change your current instructor even at this stage.

"I don't know how to tell my current instructor I want to change" 

Failing a driving test can be annoying, failing several can be unbearably frustrating. Sometimes a change is all it needs to trigger that extra 10% of thinking in order for you to pass the practical test. Be brave, phone them and simply explain you would like to try someone else.

"Why should I come to you, could I be throwing everything away I've learnt so far"

£6.99 and 1.5hrs of your time is all we ask. That is sufficient for you to understand the way we do things here at Select School of Motoring and we are extremely confident you will stay with us and pass your test with flying colours. £6.99 - what have you got to lose. Phone us today.
