What makes a great driving lesson?
The ingredients of a great lesson are quite simple, here are our top six ingredients:
1- Recapping the previous lesson
Your lesson needs to begin with a recap of what you did in the previous lesson. This could be anything from a quick discussion about what you did better and some questions to check you can remember the main learning points from the last lesson. You may want to also have a practice of the previous lesson’s learning points so you can make sure you perfect them (it’s up to you).
2- Goals for this lesson
Every lesson should have its own lesson goals. These should be set by you – the learner. The best driving lessons are now using Client-Centered-Learning. This way you are in control of your learning and can set the pace to suit you and work on what you want to focus on.
3- Scale your progress
You should always know how well you are doing and how much more you have to learn to meet your goals. To do this your driving instructor should use the scaling process. This is simple, you are just asked how you scale your progress on a topic. for example “out of 10 (10 being the best) how do you rate your reverse park?” Your instructor can then have a discussion on what you need to do to make it higher and you can plan to cover it then or at a later date.
4- Agreed practice
When you are practising a topic, you should always know exactly what is expected of you and how much input you are having from your instructor. Too much input means you won’t learn to drive as quickly, too little and it can cause you to make lots of errors and feel uncomfortable.
5- Self Reflection logs
To completely understand and be in control of your learning, you must be able to reflect on your performance, know what you are doing well and what you need to improve. This is most effective by filling in a “reflective log” at the end of the lesson. It’s just 3 simple questions and can be completed in a few minutes.
To help you learn faster and to keep the learning going while between lessons, ask your driving instructor for any recommendations on what you can do between lessons. You may find things like watching youtube clips, researching topics, reading handouts that are given to you or even just visualising changing gears can have a massive benefit between driving lessons.
