Any training is a two-way process. It requires good quality instruction that is tailored to the specific needs and learning style of the student. It also requires effort on the part of the student. The more effort that they put in, and the more motivated that they are, the sooner they will achieve the required result.
The training will be more efficient if it has momentum and if it is made a priority
Progress of the student will benefit from as much practice as possible between lessons
Sensible footwear and clothing are very important for driving, particularly when learning. Shoes should be enclosed, with a sole that allows the feel of the pedals. Very wide shoes, loose-fitting shoes, and shoes with thick soles, high heels, pointy toes, or no back support should be avoided, plus very loose clothing should be avoided.
Training is often measured by the outcome of the test. Some people find test situations very difficult, and as a result, don’t drive at their best, or make mistakes which are not typical of their driving. At times like these, it is important to remember that you have actually reached the standard, despite the outcome of the test, but you will still need to demonstrate what you are actually capable of to a tester.
