Your first lesson in Farnborough – What to expect?

Your Blue School of Motoring instructor in Hampshire will pick you up from your home, school or place of work. You’re driving instructor will then explain to you how your driving course is going to work. What to prepare for how to study for the theory test, there will be a lot going on in your first lesson, so a two hour session is usually the norm. You will driven somewhere away from busy streets, so you do not have to deal with any complex traffic situations on your first lesson. Bring along or wear some sensible shoes that will make using the foot controls easier.

Don’t worry if you forget anything

your instructor will use a drivers record of progress, which keeps a track of all that you have done.

Car control can be a lot to take in at first

it’s all about physical motor reactions, which sometimes require a new range of skills, response times and hand-to-eye co-ordination skills. Even a simple procedure like moving off involves dealing with the clutch, gears, handbrake, indicators and checking the mirrors – it’s like you’re in multitasking overdrive. But don’t worry, your instructor will go over these areas time and time again until you gradually begin to do more on your own.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions

that’s what your instructor expects, and will encourage you to do, if you don’t ask you will never learn. But don’t worry if this makes you uncomfortable – hopefully you’ll relax as you become familiar with the situation.

It is recommended that prior to taking your test you should have had 40 hours in-car tuition with a qualified driving instructor and then another 25-30 hours practice with friends or family.

Learning to drive in the Farnborough area is a great opportunity as there so many different types of driving conditions and varying road systems to experience that are covered in the Highway Code and the National Driving Standards. The Rushmoor Borough that includes Farnborough has a population of about 95,300 and this is growing every day, so the road systems are at peak hours very busy and demanding places to drive, especially the busy town centres.

These tips

are provided in conjunction with Blue School of Motoring – a driving school that gets results for learner drivers.

We strongly recommend that all candidates prepare thoroughly for the test. To help prepare we recommend The Highway Code, relevant books from our Essential Skills series and Know Your Traffic Signs. The official theory test books and Apps contain the multiple choice questions. The Apps show screens similar to those used in the multiple-choice part of the test and information about hazard perception.

All the above require a high level of concentration

so you should be able to demonstrate the ability on how to apply a systematic approach to driving, such as Mirrors, Signal, Manoeuvre Position, Speed, Look (MSM-PSL). This is a core foundation skill that all our clients at Blue
