Driving Lessons Ardrossan

Learning to drive in Ardrossan with Johnny Auld Driver Training                                         

Are you looking for a driving instructor in Ardrossan, then lucky you, you’ve come to the right place.

Taking your driving lessons in Ardrossan can be challenging. The town is situated on the coastline and has a ferry port which services the Isle of Arran. When the ferry is docked the town can be extremely busy with vehicles and to add to this there is a level crossing for trains to pass through. The main town area also has a number of pedestrian crossings which people tend to just walk out at if they see a break in the traffic.

You’ll actually take your driving test in Irvine but i think it’s fair to say that having driving lessons in Ardrossan prepares you well for when you pass your driving test and go out in your own car by yourself.

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, in or around Ardrossan. 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 demonstration 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 Irvine 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 driving lesson you have in Irvine,  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.
