Piers McBride - November 2018
I contacted A-Class Driving School in a panic when my advanced / taxi driving test date came through earlier than expected. Although I had been driving for over 30 years, I had many bad habits and knew that an assessment of my current standard was likely to see me struggle to make the grade.
Despite extreme short notice ( my test was less than 10 days away when I called ) Jim managed to find a slot for me within a few days and we met up at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway. The last time I had had an accompanied assessment, The Specials were at number 1 and Duran Duran had not yet had a hit single. But Jim was a superb instructor and, without destroying my confidence, constructively outlined exactly what I needed to address in a warm, friendly and professional manner. For half an hour he monitored my progress through busy streets until we stopped for a debrief.
For the next half an hour Jim gently reminded me of faults, always using my first name and always picking up on errors when I hoped he had not noticed. For the final hour, Jim outlined exactly the standards that my test would demand while helping me to iron out so many of the bad habits that over 3 decades of unconscious repetition had helped to make permanent. The 2 hours I spent with Jim were absolutely invaluable - and ridiculously good value for money considering what was at stake for me.
To any mature drivers with an advanced or taxi test looming then I would urge you to contact Will and his team for support and a refresher course. For any older mums and dads with young children, invest in a lesson or two to remind yourselves how our bad habits can make us far less safe on the road. You will be amazed at how much confidence you will gain and how much you will learn - even after decades of normal driving. So my review is not from a young learner who has recently passed their test. It is from an old dog who really could be taught new tricks by a talented instructor who took the time to return a desperate call and to deliver superb support when I really needed it. And did I pass ? Yes I did - and with a commendation. Thank you Jim.
