Choose wisely and put the work inIt can end up costing you a lot of cash to learn to drive so you've got to get the most out of them. When you've finished you should be a safe and competent driver who can handle a wide variety of traffic situations.
When you first start you may have to be taken to a quiet area. It all depends where you live. If you live in a quiet area then you can start at your house probably. If you live in the middle of the city then your instructor may have to drive you somewhere more suitable. This shouldn't really take more than ten to fifteen minutes. You've got to get the most actual driving time possible so it might be worth meeting for your lesson somewhere quiet.
Do your homework. back up your lessons with a reasonable amount of private study. As well as revising for the theory test you can watch some of the many you tube videos that are available. These are provided free and can help you to remember what you did last lesson as well as prepare you for the next one.
You could keep a learning journal where you write down the subjects covered and things you are not sure of. Don't hesitate to tell your instructor what it is you want to practice. Take part in shaping your lessons to your own requirements. Remember that learning is a two way process between teacher and pupil. Client centred learning yeah?
