Getting geared up to learn driving is definitely an important phase in your life, similar to the time when you took your first step or you rode a bicycle for the first time.
People often find themselves on a crossroad at this point as they find it difficult to choose between learning from a relative/friend and going for some professional driving lessons.
Although learning from acquaintances is a popular phenomenon, it comes with a series of drawbacks. Such people come without any professional training background, and thus their lessons lack in knowledge and a structured approach.
On any day, taking professional lessons in driving is a better option. Although there are plenty of reasons, the following are some of the main advantages:
Moulds you to become a responsible driver - Approved driving instructors are equipped with the right knowledge, experience and training to teach you well.
Certified & insured trainer - Professional driving instructors are legally certified and insured people. So, when you are learning under their guidance, you can rely on their instructions completely. Further, you can be free from any liability in case of any damage to the vehicle during the lessons.
Trims down the probability of fines - When trained by a professional instructor, you are sure to having clear and complete knowledge of rules regarding road and safety.
Unlike casual lessons where no training regarding road rules is given, a formal driving program equips you with a detailed know-how about traffic rules, signs & symbols and the dos & don'ts of driving. So, when you drive the road all by yourself, there are lesser possibilities of you getting fined for breaking traffic rules.
Conceptual clarity before getting onto the road - Would you prefer going for practical exams of a subject in which you have no theoretical knowledge? An obvious answer would be 'No!' Then imagine handling the road without any conceptual foundation.
How to drive on a muddy road, what to do if you are stuck in traffic on a hilly terrain, how to park in a congested area and many such concepts are built only in formal driving lessons.
Boosts up confidence - Professional driving classes offer a structured approach to learning. Theory classes, simulation training, on-road practice with dual control vehicle and objective instructions of your trainer ensure that you are fully confident of your driving skills before you take on the road.
