Thanks for choosing SP Driving School.
Lets get familiar with a few things.
I'm Steve and I'll be your driving instructor.
I started SP Driving School in May 2016. Before then I spent nearly 20 years in retail, training people here and the Middle East to be the absolute best they can be. I loved training people but wasn't so keen on being away from home 5 nights a week so I decided to change careers. Now I'm going to use those same skills to transfer over 30 years of driving know-how, to you.
I'm looking forward to meeting and finding out more about you, and even more importantly how to help you achieve your driving goals. But first keep scrolling down as there are a few little jobs to do first.
See you soon.
Your Training Car
Ford Puma 2022
Mild Hybrid - Manual Transmission
The Ford Puma is one of the best selling cars in the UK (currently No 1 - Jul 23).
It's fully equipped with dual controls and CCTV, it's also got automatic sensing lights and wipers (one less thing to worry about).
Can't wait for you to drive it.
Before your first lesson there are a couple of tasks to complete,
all very easy but if you get stuck just get in touch.
The legal requirement is to be able to read a vehicle license plate from a distance of 20metres.
It's the first thing they ask you to do on a practical driving test, if you can't read it your forfeit your test. Eyesight tests are FREE in Scotland so there isn't any real excuse not to get them checked if any doubt.
If you are already a glasses or contact lens wearer, please ensure you bring them to every lesson.
Also sunglasses are a very, very good idea - especially during the winter months when low sun and glare can cause lots of problems when driving.
What to expect....
Below are a couple of videos that can tell you a little about what to expect, but also give you a leg-up in your learning. How much easier will your lesson go if you already understand how to adjust your seat, what a clutch does or even where to look before pulling your car into traffic.......knowledge is power!!!!!
