UK driving test to enter a new era?

learner-driversYou may have heard in the news lately about some significant changes that could be introduced to the standard UK driving test. Tudor Driving School have been in this business for over 25 years but this has the potential to be the most significant change seen in some time. First up is the dreaded ‘three point turn’ which faces redundancy due to its supposed lack of relevance to modern driving. This is interesting given there are far more important manoeuvres and situations that have long gone neglected.

The DVLA have also released a statement that suggests they have been seriously reconsidering how effective the current test procedure is to new drivers. An unnamed spokesman from the agency has said “We are carrying out initial research to explore how the driving test could better reflect real life driving. Any future changes to the test would be subject to full public consultation”, the last part is an encouraging democratic move but we hope the consultation also comes from those who moderate and teach driving on a daily basis too.

So what’s going to happen next? 1000 learner drivers from the UK will be taking part in an exclusive trial of the new practical exam with the suggested changes. Reversing out of a parking bay, rejoining heavy traffic flow and following SatNav directions as part of an independent driving section are key additions to the reshuffle. The emphasis on motorway driving and joining traffic is welcomed as this is something many new drivers find daunting and struggle with.

For now we’ll have to see what the future brings but this reshuffle will affect all of our lessons and usher in a new era of modern test conditions. Till then, we shall continue to offer the absolute best in Lincoln driving instruction.

Tudor Education Centre

tudor dealWe’ve been feeling very optimistic about all our future students lately, particularly those ready to start training to be instructors at our Tudor Driver Education Centre in Lincoln. You see we don’t just help people learn to drive but we also have an incredible track record of coaching new driving instructors in Lincolnshire for over 20 years. If that wasn’t enough of a testament to our dedication, we started coaching instructors outside the area way back in 1967 in anticipation for the yet to be instilled mandatory A.D.I. qualification two years later.

We have seen over 80 Lincolnshire students alone walk away as fully qualified A.D.I. instructors, ready to embark on a new and  successful career of their own in Lincolnshire. Our success and your success has become part of a perfect synthesis and we are delighted to say that our last three P.D.I’s past part one and two of their tests first time round.

Being your own boss can be an incredibly rewarding experience and lead to a livelihood of exciting and varied challenges. You’ll earn an average of £30k a year with your training being completed in as short a period as five months. If you are interested, please get in contact with our very own Rob here and discuss training, finance and your availability. Our training packages start at £2750 and we will help accommodate every student’s individual situation to help you get the most from your training.

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!
