New Year, New You

Learning how to drive is an exciting and liberating experience. Whether you have just turned 17, or are tackling driving later in life, this will be one of those life experiences you won’t forget in a hurry. Driving allows you to take control of your own life, and not be dependent on others (or buses) to get you from A to B.

Here are the key things you need to be aware of when learning to drive:

  • Attitude matters: It is very important that you approach the experience with a positive can-do attitude.
  • Don’t get disheartened: It might take you a few times to learn how to use a roundabout, or you might struggle with your turn in the road, but try not to get down about it. It’s all about learning. and you can’t learn if you never make a mistake!
  • There’s nothing to be scared about: Sometimes people push driving to the side because they are afraid of getting out on the roads. Though this is understandable, driving is only getting safer every year; and by learning to drive the right way you can actually have a positive impact on our roads.
  • Trust your instructor: This is an important safety measure as well, as you need to trust your instructor’s professional judgement to keep you safe whilst you’re learning to drive. Remember they are a trained professional and this is their job. If you disagree with something, discuss it once the car has stopped and you are both safe.

Save time with a driving crash course

At Momentum, we are passionate about saving you time and money and we think our intensive driving courses are a great way to learn how to drive in a short space of time. After an initial assessment, we spend about a week on the road with you, going through everything you will need to know to learn how to drive (and pass your test).

Here are some reasons why a crash course might be the best option for you:

  • You work hard: Spending a week learning to drive (instead of a whole year!) means you can get back to work faster. You might even be able to do all your driving on your holiday and not have to take any time off work.
  • You need to learn for a new job: Often people suddenly get caught out by a new job and need to quickly get behind the wheel, so a crash course might be only option for you.
  • You already have some driving experience, but you need the final push before the test.
  • You are dedicated and want to invest in your driving but you need results fast: Some people are just naturally suited to getting things out the way quickly.

To learn to drive with us, you have to have already passed your theory test, so start swatting up now!

This will change your life

Not meaning to sound dramatic or anything, but learning how to drive is a great thing that will change a lot of things for you. Here are some fun things you can do after passing:

  • Go on a road trip with your mates– pack the car full of goodies and hit the road!
  • Drive to Europe– definitely an experience to get in once you feel confident enough to drive abroad. Driving in Europe is really fun, and not as scary as you might think.
  • Cruise down the motorway– motorway driving can be a lot of fun, and it’s good to flex your driving muscles. Go out with an experienced driver the first time you hit the motorway to give you a second pair of eyes on the road.
  • Be the designated driver (hey, this can actually be quite fun).

Start 2016 the right way and grab the proverbial bull by the horns.
