Learning to drive is an exciting time in any teenager’s life. The chance to gain a little freedom from your parents can often encourage them to press on with their learning experience and gain their very own driving licence.
There are many things that you will cover when you start to learn to drive. The vast majority of your first driving lessons will seem a little slow. However, that is simply because you have never driven before.
On the flip side, if you have had some experience learning to drive in the past, you may be able to skip the first steps of a new lesson and start where you left off. This does of course entirely depend on how long ago your last driving lesson was.
Despite being based in Oxford, we know many driving instructors. Many of our professional friends are based in amongst the London boroughs and provide driving lessons in Enfield and various other smaller suburbs of the capital.
What Do You Learn?
When you first start learning to drive your driving instructor will take you through the car controls itself. He or she will show you the accelerator, brake, clutch (if you’re learning in a manual vehicle), the handbrake and various other controls that you will need to get the hang of.
One of the most important aspects of learning to drive is to learn in a safe environment.
Part of learning to drive is improving your ability to anticipate potentially dangerous situations and how you approach and deal with them. Your driving instructor will be able to teach you all of this.
