Our aim is to make every lesson as enjoyable & educational as possible, whilst sticking to the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency syllabus AND providing value for money. All lessons are on a ‘one to one’ basis ….. there will be no car sharing or pupil doubling up.
If, however, you would like to be accompanied by a Parent or friend at any time during your lesson
that’s fine – just ask!
We passed our driving tests (car & motorbike), first time, many years ago. Since then, traffic volume has increased a lot and test standards have got tougher, so passing your test and every day driving is much more of a challenge than it used to be, but don’t let that put you off! Because we are up-to-date with all the recent rules, regulations and teaching methods, you should feel safe knowing that you are being taught by a D.V.S.A. Approved Driving Instructor (A.D.I.). As official A.D.I.’s, we have also been D.B.S. checked (Disclosure & Barring Service) & have regular checks to ensure that our teaching reaches a very high standard.
Whether you are 17 or 70, you will find us patient, friendly, kind and reliable. Hall Driving School was established in 2008 and since then we’ve taught hundreds of new drivers and helped to improve the skills of experienced, nervous and older drivers too. With our calm and relaxed teaching methods, following DVSA national standards, we will give you the ability and confidence to be out on the road.
We teach in MANUAL, petrol engine Ford KA’s, which are ideally suited to learning in as they are very easy to drive and manoeuvre and will suit anybody, short or tall. The cars also have hill start assist to help with those tricky hill starts! Both cars have ‘He-Man’ dual controls fitted which means that should you get into any ‘difficulties’ during your lesson, we can help you out and stop the car quickly and safely, should the need arise. Dual controls can also be used to help you in ‘panic situations’ (i.e. emerging into busy traffic), so relax … you will be very safe!
In addition to the standard mirrors on the cars, we have added two ‘blind spot’ mirrors to the door mirrors; these make manoeuvres so much easier as you are able to see exactly where the car is in relation to the kerb, centre line and in the case of bay parking, the bay! Unlike many driving Schools, we encourage the use of mirrors during a reversing manoeuvre as the Highway Code tells you to (Rule 202), as long as you look “mainly through the rear window”.
