  • Why should I use a Professional Driving Instructor?
    A learner driver with a driving permit needs to practise driving with a supervising driver. A Professional driving Instructor as the supervising driver is able to impart crucial knowledge to the learner driver, very often expediting the learning process and also building confidence in the technical abilities of handling a vehicle as well as road rules. Driving instructors cars are usually fitted with dual control pedals and this allows them to take control of the vehicles in dangerous situations providing a safer learning environment than other vehicles.
