I founded Turn Wright driving school in 2006 as an independent driving school. Over the years I have helped guide people through their driving experience and, after many success stories, the company's reputation has grown.
This has lead me to recruit more instructors. Recently John Howie joined the team at Turn Wright. He has been driving for forty years and has a Class One HGV licence which he attained twenty four years ago. He will bring a wealth of experience to the team.
I would also like to welcome Philippa Creighton to our team she brings with her thirty five years of driving experience and is a mother of one so has the patience that cannot be taught and a passion to pass on knowledge.
Most people have had some kind of driving experience even if its just as a passenger in a car. We aim to build on your experience to enable us to guide you on your way to passing the test. When starting driving everyone is a little nervous as they don't know what to expect. During the first lesson, you will be taken to a quiet area where we can assess your existing skills and give you suggestions on how you can improve. If you are a complete novice, we will teach you the basics about clutch control, braking and the use of the accelerator.
Our aim is to help you to understand everything about what the car will and won't do and to encourage you to ask questions and learn from any mistakes made. My team of instructors are relaxed, friendly and approachable and they are also thorough. We actively encourage our pupils to ask questions if they are unsure of anything and will offer praise when things go well. Equally, if something goes wrong, we will explain why it didn't work out and ask questions to see if they understand what the problem was and how they would do it differently next time.Then, if possible, we will drive around again so they can see what went wrong and and why, and correct the previous error.
Our average pass rate is 78%. The average hours recommended to achieve test standard are thirty, if you have driven before with an experienced driver. A complete novice may require between thirty and forty hours, although the amount of lessons required are tailored to a each driver's needs.
In just over 3 months I went from being a complete novice to passing my driving test. This would have been impossible without Jon's patience and skills, he has been a fantastic driving instructor and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my lessons with him.
I would highly recommend Jon to anyone learning to drive as he provides a friendly and enjoyable but informative environment. I feel that Jon has enabled me to be a careful but confident driver.
I am now looking forward to completing my Pass Plus with Jon.
