Driving school is a department that teaches candidates to drive a four wheeler proficiently, along with some basic vehicle maintenance, traffic regulations and laws, and safety precautions. If you are spending money on driving lessons, then it is important to choose a best qualified driving instructor or driving school.
Check the certificate of Driving Standards Agency (DSA) in the driving school. A green octagonal badge means that driving instructor is fully qualified. On the other hand, a pink triangular badge means that the driving instructor is not fully qualified. He/she is undertaking some training. All driving schools in Doha Qatar have DSA approved certificate.
You can choose a driving school from interest or you may ask from your family, friends, relatives, or neighbours. You need to compare more than two schools, before making a final decision. Your instructor needs to be punctual always and come in a well maintained car.
Some tips which can help you to choose a good driving school are:
- Do your research
Just like choosing a college is important for your career, selecting a driving school has to be your top priority. Selection of the best school should be made after extensive research. Do all relevant research and read reviews on the internet and find out the best driving school near your residence.
The fees may vary from school to school. You should visit different schools to compare the cost. However, driving school with fewer fees should not be your top most option. Also, find out whether any school offers any package or discount.
- Success rate
A good driving school must have a high success rate when it comes to people passing the road test on the first or second chance. You can ask for these details on the phone or ask them to show some valid reports.
- Convenient location
Driving school must be selected near your resident. This will help you to save your travelling expenses as well as time and money.
- You should keep all the copies of receipts, contracts and other documents of the school
- Check your plan for lessons
You have to ask for your program confidently. Proper attention has to be given to the plan based on your skills. Check whether the lessons are well planned or not as well as they are in accordance to your time. A good instructor must have strategies for practice driving between lessons.
- Cheapest school is not necessary
Choosing a cheap school may be a more expensive option in the long run. Never make full payments, before taking any lessons. Make sure to take proper receipts for the amount you have paid as upfront.
- Change the school if you are dissatisfied
Always feel free to change the school, if you are not satisfied. If the instructor does not pay full attention on you or the car is not properly maintained, then you have the right to cancel your contract and the school has to refund the full amount.
Driving schools are best for improving your skills. It helps you to become a good and responsible driver.
