Why choose SafeRoads Learner Driver Training over other driving schools?
Hi, and thanks for dropping by to have a look. Let me introduce myself; I’m Darren, the owner of SafeRoads Learner Driver Training. Well, before you make your decision about whether SafeRoads LDT is the right fit for you, let me explain a little bit about why we do what we do.
To put it simply, driving badly can kill. Nobody sets out to become a bad driver. Bad driving develops over time, from a combination of driving without really thinking about what we’re doing, and with the introduction of acquired bad habits.
If you think about it, everyone who has legally passed their driving test, has displayed the ability to drive to the required standard that the Driving Examiner is looking for. That’s great, but what happens afterwards is what really matters. Have you ever heard someone say something like, “well, that’s you passed your test, now you’ll really learn to drive on your own”? What that really translates as is, “now you can forget what you’ve been taught, and pick up all the bad habits that will make you a less conscientious driver, and less of a nuisance to the impatient drivers who don’t care about your safety.”
As a newly established driving school, I’ve recently had the joy of teaching my 17 year old son to drive, and he was my first pupil to pass under the banner of SafeRoads Learner Driver Training, and first time as well. That was a proud moment for me.
As a parent, it’s always at the back of your mind that when your child goes out in the car on their own, you might get that knock at your door that no parent wants to hear, because of what comes next.
For me, I know that I have given my son the benefit of my knowledge, skill, and experience, that has enabled him to become a confident and competent driver. I know that I have given him everything he needs to stay safe on the road. The rest is up to him, but the right foundations have been put in place.
I wasn’t teaching my son to pass his driving test, I was teaching him to drive, for the day after his test when I wouldn’t be sitting beside him any more. The “now you’ll really learn to drive” mentality would be like saying to an airline pilot, “you see all that stuff you learned? Well, just forget it, and do your own thing. Now you’ll really learn to fly”. Would that make you feel safe?
That’s what motivates me as a driving instructor. I’m not teaching you, or your loved one to pass your driving test, I’m teaching you to stay safe on a constantly changing shared space, as a road user. Passing your driving test is the natural by-product of becoming a competent driver. If that seems like the kind of thing you’re looking for in a Driving School, then get in touch on 0800 920 2019. You can also get hold of me through Facebook, WhatsApp, or the website contact form. I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you get ready for the road. All the best, Darren.
