lf you live in Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Stamford, Grantham, Market Harborough, Corby, Leicester or Loughborough and you are thinking of learning to drive or you are already taking driving lessons but becoming increasingly frustrated with your lack of progrress, why not join the driving school that is totally focused on “Customer Success” where you will benefit from the latest effective and proven teaching methods. You don’t just have to take our word for it, you can read our customers comments in our Customer Reviews section, which they kindly left after taking their driving lessons with Lytes Driving School. Learning to drive should be an enjoyable and straight forward process when following our structured course of driving lessons. It is absolutely vital that each of your driving lessons has a defined objective and that you clearly understand exactly what you are trying to achieve during the driving lesson. Way too many driving lessons consist of aimless driving around without a definite purpose or objective to be achieved. When you make a mistake whilst driving it is imperative that you understand exactly what the mistake is, why it occurred and how to fix it. This is not rocket science, however, too many driving instructors fail to follow these simple but very effective guidelines. Important Note; If your driving lessons do not have a definite objective then your learning period will almost certainly take you longer and ultimately cost you more of your hard earned money. We take great pride on the amount of positive Customer Reviews that we receive. Many of these reviews praise our teaching methods and note them as to why they made such good progress. To think all driving instructors are the same would be a huge mistake, because many instructors still teach without a clear objective which results in extending your learning period and costing you more than is necessary. If you are currently learning to drive and do not have a very clear objective agreed at the beginning of the lesson, how can you possibly be expected to understand what you are trying to achieve during the driving lesson. We would be delighted to welcome to join us here at Lytes where you can join the many other students that have passed their driving tests with us. I wish you a very happy and successful driving. Best wishes from all the team here at Lytes Driving School. By David Howe Customer Reviews

8 Super Steps to a 1st Time Pass.

No 1.   Always try to be consistent with your Driving Lessons. Endeavour to take weekly driving lessons. Students that take regular driving lessons learn SO much faster than those that don’t. If possible have two hour driving lessons, You will be able to do a lot more, learn far more and much faster. One hour driving lessons WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE BEST VALUE FOR YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. By the time you have recapped on your previous lesson and driven to the training area (if necessary) to practice your chosen objective, you could have already used 15 minutes of your lesson. There should also be a summary of the lesson when you finish to confirm what you have learnt and what to work on next time. This will take another 5 minutes; that’s 20 minutes of your 60 minute lesson.
Be prepared for your driving lessons
No 2.   Be wide awake and ready for your driving lesson. Being in the proper frame of mind and actually conscious is a big plus.
Always recap your previous lessons
No 3.   Get your brain into gear. All your Driving Lessons should always begin with a recap of your previous lesson. This simple fact should never be underestimated. Your driving instructor ought to be asking you questions at this stage to confirm your understanding and recollection of previous learning and to test your knowledge on the next subject to be covered. Your driving practice will be less effective if you do not fully understand the theory of the subject and the likelihood of mistakes will be significantly higher..
Have a clear objective
No 4. Lesson Objective.    Possibly, this is the most important element to your progress. Trust me, without stating a firm objective, your learning period will be significantly increased. It is absolutely vital that EVERY lesson starts with a definite and agreed objective. You must understand what is to be covered during the driving lesson and how it will help to advance you towards your goal of a full driving licence and that 1st time pass. Simply driving aimlessly around hoping to improve is a complete waste of time and your hard earned money.nt goes here
Fully structured driving lessons
NO 5 All your driving lessons need to be structured and you should be encouraged to be active in developing your skills. Your Lessons should follow a structured path initially from very easy at the beginning and then increase in complexity as your skills develop. Your instructor should be encouraging you to improve by asking you relevant questions to check your understanding of the subject matter. This is very important as responsibility is gradually transferred to you, thus enabling you to become a competent and safe driver, and of course pass that driving test.
Summary of your driving lessons
NO 6. A summary of your driving Lesson. It has been proven that a review at the end of your lesson will reinforce the retention of your newly gained knowledge, experience and understanding.
Self evaluation
NO 7. Self Evaluate to become confident and ready for your driving test. Be honest with yourself. If you still make mistakes during your lessons you are probably not ready (tough but true). Many students fail their driving tests because their driving is not consistent enough before they go to test. Arriving for your practical driving test knowing that you are lacking in confidence due to inconsistent driving will just add to your anxiety. Some will blame nerves “on the day”. However, in reality it’s usually a lack of consistency in the build up to test day, so be honest with yourself.
Listen to your driving instructors advice
NO 8. Ensure that you listen to the advice of your Driving Instructor. Driving Instructors have been highly trained and are experienced at assessing when you are ready to take your driving test. You are paying for professional advice, so it would be prudent to listen to it (even if its not what you want to hear).   To think that all driving instructors or driving schools are the same would be a massive mistake.

30% of learner drivers feel the need to change their driving instructors before going for driving test.

Our “Customer Success ” approach to learning to drive will maximise your chances of a first time driving test pass. All of your driving lessons will have a definite purpose and very clear objective. This way you will know exactly what you are trying to achieve and how it will advance you towards your goal of a gaining your full driving licence. Many people change to us because their previous driving lessons involved aimless “driving around”. Does this sound familiar? If you are already taking driving lessons and feel you are not progressing as you think you should it may be time to change your instructor. We find that when our pupils are offered a full and detailed explanation on the subject required it makes it really easy to understand and move forward. Another method called “chunking” during driving lessons works very well. This is where we set a mini objective for 20-30 minutes. We then focus on the required task, naturally with help, assistance and well targeted questions to constantly check your thinking. Following each “chunk” we then know exactly whether further practice is required or we can move on to the another step. It is essential that you as the pupil know exactly why you are requested to do something, along with the possible consequences of not doing it and what effect it may have on others around you. Perhaps this sounds a little complicated, but it’s quite simple when you get the idea. We have many Test passes on our website and our pupils return very high average 1st time pass rates. If you are thinking of starting to learn to drive or you are already taking driving lessons but not happy with your progress, now is your chance to join a driving school that is focused on Your Success. You will benefit from the latest and proven teaching methods. Don’t just take our word for it read our Customer Reviews to see what customers have to say after taking their driving lessons. We try to make learning to drive an enjoyable and straight forward process by following a structured course of relaxed lessons. When you make a mistake in your driving it is imperative that you understand exactly what the mistake was, the reasons it cropped up and how to cure it. This is far from rocket science, but many driving instructors fail to follow these simple but hugely effective guidelines. For further information see our main website or call the free number below. Kind regards   David Howe, business owner.
