Intensive Driving Lessons Ashford Verses Weekly Driving Lessons

However, in order to keep the prices low, many driving schools that offer “Pass in a Week Ashford” will have three learner drivers in the car at the same time with one instructor. You’re actually paying to watch someone else drive! Sitting in a car for 6 to 8 hours per day for a week or two can be extremely exhausting. Usually, many learner drivers switch off after about 4 hours and stop learning.

Intensive Driving Lessons Ashford – Save Time

Taking a “Pass in a Week Ashford” intensive course can have got one massive advantage. If you pass you driving crash course Ashford, you save loads of time and money. However, this will not make you a safe driver as you will be taught to pass the test not to drive safely for life.

Weekly Driving Lessons – Big Advantage

Taking weekly driving lessons allows you to spread the cost over many months and there is no risk in losing you money.  Also, you can always change driving instructors or even driving schools midway. Furthermore, you are taught to drive safely, rather than just to pass the test. You will get experience in dealing with many situations and weather conditions.

Document Checks

On the day of the driving test, it’s important that you take your provisional driving license to the test as the examiner will need to check that it is valid. You will not need to take your theory certificate as the examiner will be able to check it on the system. Ashford driving test occasional starts test at 7.13 am when the examiner may not have access to the checking system. It is therefore advisable to have your certificate number just in case. You also need to bring a car that is insured and MOTed. 

Having checked your identity documents, the examiner will ask you to read a number plate from a distance of 20 meters. If you wear glasses to read the number plate, they must be worn throughout the test. Furthermore, after passing the test, your license will be marked as only valid if glasses are worn.

One-ways Roads

There are a few one-way roads on the Ashford driving test route. Many learner drivers have been known to fail at Ashford because they were not aware that they were on a one-way system. Therefore watching road signs and road marking are vital in order to pass your driving test at Ashford. At the entrance to a one-way road, you will be a blue rectangular sign with a white arrow. Please note that this is different from a head-only sign which is a blue circle with an arrow.

Independent Drive

The independent drive takes up half of the driving test at Ashford. It is not an opportunity for you to program the sat nav for the beach, put on the cruise control, and head off wherever you like. The examiner can ask you to follow road signs and road markings to a set destination or ask to follow directions given by a satnav. 

During the independent drive, things are a bit different. In normal driving, let’s say at a roundabout, the examiner will say, “at the roundabout, turn right.” Immediately, you know that you are approaching a roundabout. You also know that you need to start the MSM routine. However, in the independent driving section, you will need to identify that you are approaching a roundabout and then you need to decide when to start the Mirror, Signal & Maneuver routine. 

During the independent driving section, if you’re unsure as to where you are going, you can ask the examiner. The driving examiners at Ashford will not mind and will willingly help you. This is because they know that you have identified the roundabout in good time and want to start the MSM routine. Having said this, if you reached the roundabout and then asked the examiner which direction you were going, they would not help you because, at that point, you may already be in the wrong position to turn where the examiner wanted you to go.
