Q&A - Before you BOOK a driving lesson with any driving school take a look below

We understand that planning to book your first driving lesson is a very nerve wracking experience. Here are some of the most common questions our students ask us - click each question for the answer:

1Paying Upfront - Ive been asked to pay upfront before taking a driving lesson, should I?
Absolutely not, no reputable driving school will ask you to pay "upfront" before taking a driving lesson. One or two schools have to offer discounts that require you to pay a lot upfront before you have even sat in the car, but you have to ask why is this and if it's to lock a student in financially. With Totally Driving, you get your total discount on the first lesson. If you don't like it, you're not trapped and can walk away. Although thankfully, we find our students stay.
2Lesson Location - Do I always have to start my driving lessons from home?
Of course not. By its very nature, having a car means you could be anywhere so we start our driving lessons at colleges, work places and from peoples homes. It makes sense to get tuition in a wide number of environments, thus building confidence for when you get your full licence.
3Nervous Drivers - I am very nervous about driving, do you specialise in this?
You're not alone, almost every student we teach is in someway nervous about the prospect of driving. It’s a large and somewhat scary hurdle to cross but with professional tuition and bespoke lessons all starting in roads to match your level of experience, the nerves are often short lived and soon replaced with a more confident outlook.
4Driving Lesson Offers - Do i need to pay for a 10+ lessons up front to get my discount?
No, of course not unlike most driving schools we are so sure that you will enjoy learning with Totally Driving that we offer our complete discount of £20 OFF the 1st hour. This means you won't have to pay for 10/15 hours upfront, or book an intensive course, to receive a discount and you won't be fixed in to a driving school before even trying it.
5Lesson Prices - Why do lesson prices vary so much between driving schools
May factors affect the price of a driving school. This can be the "First Time pass rates, lesson quality, age of tuition car to name just a few.
Before booking any driving lessons, try to make sure the feedback from past students, testimonials and gut feeling about the instructor fits your needs.
Driving schools are not all the same, so the level of service you get can vary massively, hence so does the price being charged. Some offer intensive driving courses, pass plus driving courses, advanced driving courses and other help with your theory test. Learning to drive can be a very stressful and scary environment, not everyone is able to help the student through this. So be careful not to look for the lowest price. You have to question why some schools have to market 25% cheaper than others. For some, price is the only factor and this is ok, but be sure to read genuine Google Reviews and feedback or it can easily cost a lot more in the long run.

Great Start Locations in Staines

St Paul's Road

Just over the River, St Paul's Road is close to The Magna Carta School and is a perfect starting location for lessons, with a nice mix of wide and low traffic roads and T-Junctions. Surrounding roads such as Wopshot Road and Cornwall Way are also a good place to start.

Huntingfield Way

Again, over the river is a perfect place to tighten up junctions and corner reverse, close to Thorpe Lea Primary School. It's best to avoid around school opening and closing times though.

Staines High Street

Once you're ready for main roads and roundabouts, you will move onto the one way system surrounding Staines. It will be great for dealing with traffic lights and large box junctions, plus giving you the option to go to McDonalds for a fill up as well!

As you develop

Students' have the opportunity to venture onto Ashford High Street in order to advance their skills with some of the larger roundabouts in this area; these are something that at first many people will be nervous about. Ashford’s road system when used in the correct way, means that roundabouts will no longer pose a challenge to those students' learning with us.

At Totally Driving we specialise in understanding nervous drivers.

Why choose an approved driving instructor

In October 2010, the DSA stopped publishing Driving Test routes for all of its driving test centres around the UK. Most centres consist of 10-12 routes, each taking approximately 40-50 minutes meaning that the student has to be familiar with all of the major crossroads, junctions and roundabouts covered by the test centre. When people take lessons with their parents' or friends, candidates' will often encounter a common problem - a lack of understanding when approaching large junctions and roundabouts with respect to lanes and position. With the direction of an Approved Driving Instructor, candidates will gain a thorough understanding of the complex junctions and roundabouts involved in the test routes.
