Let’s take a look at exactly what a driving instructor should be doing.....

Driving lesson objectives
At the start of each lesson, your instructor should explain clearly and concisely what the objective for today’s lesson is. This is to include exactly what you will be learning and what you will hopefully achieve at the end of the lesson.
Lesson end recap – At the end of the lesson the instructor should recap on the objectives and provide a professional opinion on what was accomplished and which areas need further work. The lesson end recap should also include your opinion, whether you fully understood all procedures and which areas you feel are in need of improvement.

Lesson start recap
Before the objectives of today’s lesson are explained, a recap of the previous lesson should be covered. This should cover what you remember from the previous lesson and any strengths and weaknesses.

Fault analysis
Your instructor should identify each driving fault made, analyse why it was made and put in procedure to remedy the fault. This is conducted verbally to the learner followed by prompts to correct when taking remedial action. Minor faults that involve minimal interaction can be explained and remedied whilst on the move. More serious faults may involve detailed discussion or the use of diagrams and as such, may require pulling over.

A picture paints a thousand words as the saying goes. Diagrams often make the explanation of objectives considerably easier for the learner to understand.

Instructors should provide continual feedback during lessons, essentially covering what was explained in the initial objectives. Small amounts of information that are easy to process and can be put into action on the go. The instructor should provide this in a calm manner and should never raise their voice or get angry when faults are made. It is equally important that praise is given when the learner makes progress.

Progress report
A progress report, or record of training should be filled out by the instructor outlining objectives completed and any areas requiring further work. This should be kept by the learner and taken to each lesson.

The instructor should be courteous, professional and where possible punctual.

Why waste your time and money if you are not totally happy?....

I chose Mike Williams Driver Training because I found that I was not progressing with my previous instructor. Mike gave me some free advice which I took on board but came to the decision that I needed to change. I think he has a very good website with great Customer Reviews so I changed to him. I had found learning to drive harder than expected. I found Mike to be calm, patient and relaxed. He is easy to get on with and is a great motivator and confidence builder. He is very good at picking up on any weaknesses and always correcting them on time. I would definitely recommend Mike to anybody wanting to learn to drive or even thinking about changing instructor. Until I changed to Mike I found learning to drive stressful!!!

Chloe Perez

My name is Chloe Perez and I live in Gloucester. I found Mike Williams Driver Training online and really liked the website with all it’s information and great customer reviews. The overall learning to drive experience I found easier than I thought it would be. Mike’s teaching methods were really effective, he was very patient and sorted out my clutch control issues. I felt that Mike trusted me , which gave me more confidence to learn. His system for teaching the manouvres was great including putting the door mirror down so that I could see the kerb…I found that to be very useful. Would I recommend Mike Williams to others?,,,,,..Absolutely, and I have already done so. He has loads of patience and is very professional in his approach to driving lessons which made me thoroughly enjoy every one of them. Thanks Mike!

I chose Mike as my driving instructor because I didn´t like my previous 2 instructors. I found Mike online and was impressed by his Customer Reviews. I found learning to drive nerve wracking, but it did get easier. He is very good, calming and his instructions are easy to understand and follow. I was more than happy, he is very easy to get on with.. I will be recommending him to friends and also my brother.

I had my driving lessons with Mike Williams, as he was recommended to me for which I was glad. I would most definitely highly recommend him as a Driving Instructor.

He is friendly, so easy to talk too and teaches you so well that you learn faster but properly, saving you money. His teaching methods were brilliant! I learnt quickly and could afford to do so as his prices are so great!

It wasn´t long before I was taking my Test feeling really confident, and passed 1st time, with only 4 minors.

To sum up...great prices, nice car to drive and an amazing driving instructor. I´m so glad I went with Mike and wouldn´t of thought twice about going with someone else.

Thank you so so very much Mike! I could not have done it without YOU! You believed in me and gave me that confidence and courage to conquer my fear and I MADE IT!

I chose Mike Williams, as my sister had driving lessons with Mike and she passed a few years ago. She also spoke highly of Mike as well as his cool and friendly approach or manner in which he guides and teachers his students. Mike made her feel very relaxed and not nervous and he truly believes that his students can become good, confident and safe drivers. I knew that Mike would be the best driving instructor as my sister was very positive and spoke highly of him and i just knew that Mike would help me get over my fear of driving.

I got your contact number from Tammy Mahoney

It surpassed my expectations by miles. I never ever expected to be able to drive on these roads (some narrow roads that scared me in not wanting to drive) BUT I have conquered those fears and feel confident to drive anywhere as well as pleased with myself in that I FINALLY have a driver´s license.

Mike´s teaching methods were absolutely BRILLIANT. He was approachable and sociable thus putting me at ease especially since learning to drive is stressful already but Mike made me feel like I could conquer anything, even the world. He has the patience of a saint and truly explained questions and scenarios that needed answering. Mike´s teaching methods where easy and not complicated at all.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend you (Mike) to family and friends because everyone who knows me, know how terrified I was to drive here, let alone get my driver´s license. So if I, Tatum, can pass and be confident in knowing how to drive (which i still cannot must still sink in that i have my driver´s license) then I would and will HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE BEST DRIVING INSTRUCTOR - MIKE WILLIAMS.
