Learning with Johnny Auld Driver Training                                         

I provide quality driver training from novice drivers learning for the first time through to experienced drivers that just want a refresher course. The areas that I cover are Irvine, Kilwinning, Stevenston, Saltcoats, Ardrossan, Dreghorn, Dundonald, Loans, Troon and Barassie.

Please take a few minutes to have a browse through my website. Feel free to get in touch, even if you are just looking for more information at this stage. I’m more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.

The car you will drive

You will learn to drive in a Ford Fiesta 1.0 Titanium with a manual 6 speed gearbox. The car is fully air conditioned and has plenty of leg and head room helping you to feel cool and comfortable as you learn to drive.

The car comes as standard with keyless start with Ford Power Starter Button, LED daytime running lights, Electronic Automatic Temperature Control as well as many other features.

I lease my tuition vehicle with a full maintenance pack included, giving you the piece of mind that the car will be serviced regularly and in line with the manufacturers specification.

I replace my car regularly, this ensures that you are always learning in a new car equipped with all the latest safety technology.



Your first driving lesson

Once you have contacted me and arranged a time for your first lesson I will pick you up from an agreed location of your choice. We will have a brief discussion to gauge your level of driving experience, if you are a complete beginner we will start by giving you a demostration of the controls and instruments and how they all work.

Once this is completed we will go for a drive in a suitable area where you will learn how to move off and stop safely.

I understand that you may be nervous about taking control of the car for the first time but there is no need to be. You will learn at your pace in bite size pieces and we will only move on through your learning syllabus when you feel ready.

Getting ready for your Theory Test

I will tend to focus on teaching you to drive, and will let you practice for your theory test in your own time. If however you would like to dedicate part of your lesson to the theory test preparation then please let me know.

There are a number of apps available to enable you to study for the theory test. Using the apps on your phone or tablet gives you the opportunity to study whilst you commute to and from school, college, uni or work.

If you dedicate a sufficent amount of time to studying the theory questions, viewing the hazard perception clips whilst applying the practical knowledge that you gain on your lessons, all of  this will assist you in passing your theory and hazard perception test when the time comes.

Getting ready for your Practical Test

During your learning to drive process we will go through a structured lesson plan, which will cover your progress to date and areas that need to be improved upon. At the end of each lesson we will have a de-brief and your progress will be logged on my ipad app where a complete record of your learning is stored.

I will let you know when I think you are ready to sit your practical test. Once we have reached this point you will then be able to go online and book your test at a pre-determined date and time that we have agreed upon. When you have confirmation of the test booking I would ask that you send me a screenshot of the booking to enable me to enter the details in to your learner driver file.
