New website, new year, new drivers!

tudorIf you’re reading this you may have noticed we have a new website! If not, take a look here. As the digital age continues to expand, we knew we couldn’t get left behind so a little end of year clean up was needed for a fresh year of business. Tudor Driving School has been teaching citizens of Lincoln for over 25 years and in that quarter of a decade we’ve seen hundreds of you walk away smiling, certificate in hand and ready to face the road ahead.

As we move towards 2015, we’d like to reiterate our ethos and articulate what we can do for you personally as a learner driver. Having been in the driving school business since 1969, all that experience needs to be channelled somewhere. We avoid the city centre and allow you to take things at your own pace. There is nothing worse than a teacher forcing you through the motions through a lack of patience and passion, we are the anti-thesis of this and hope you’ll agree. We also teach people how to become driving instructors and this plays a huge part in our business, we have helped fuel the local industry and bring many people a new, exciting and rewarding career path. You can look on our (new!) website about how to approach this and what we can do for you.

Our new site also includes the long overdue Theory Test practice page which is a nifty feature for those of your journey to become new drivers already, take a look here. We understand that learning to drive is more than just brawn, so we take it upon ourselves to tie in the theoretical aspects of driving in your standard training. Our high success rate and glowing testimonials are very precious to us and we hope that you’ll consider our service. Whether you want to drive, want to instruct or are interested in specialist learning, don’t hesitate as we want to help however we can – get in contact here today!

Theory Test Preperation

dsa theorySo you think you’re ready to hit the road but one last hurdle remains – the theory test. At Tudor Driving School we like to bring out the best driver possible in all our students and all this takes is little faith, confidence and passion from our instructors in you. The theory test is something outside of our curation but we want to ensure that come the big day, you’ll be confident in the knowledge we’ve bestowed upon you.

There are several important things to consider in the lead up to your theory test, chief among them is revision. The Tudor Driving School website contains a special section with an extensive list of official safety questions which shall arise in your test and theory, so please take the time to read over these and refresh your memory. The theory test will take place in two halves, the first will contain 50 multiple choice questions out of a potential 1000. You’ll need a minimum of 43 correct answers to pass onto the next area of the test – hazard perception. Before we discuss this, we’d like to recommend your investment in the official Driving School Agency theory test handbook which is available at all respectable high street and online book retailers. The handbook is especially useful for its imagery, example questions and revision tips.

Next, you’ll want to consider your knowledge of hazard perception. This is where most people trip up come the test as it requires a keen, educated eye and a precise hand. The test will run through a variety of video clips which depict a variation of common driving hazards, it’ll be up to you to isolate and inform what these hazards are on screen. There are websites and services which can assist you in preparation for this such as Drive IQ.

It may seem daunting but revision is the key, don’t procrastinate and put in the time. Get friends and family to test you from the handbook, do blind tests and play to your strengths as a learner. You’ll be fine.
