Waqar is an excellent driving instructor. He was recommended to me by Kevin from the Rated Support Team. He is reliable, honest, and makes the lessons enjoyable. He taught me everything from scratch with patience and professionalism. He also helped me find a test date and organized lessons around my busy schedule. He made me feel confident and prepared me well for the test, which I passed on my first attempt. I highly recommend Waqar to anyone who wants to learn how to drive. Thank you, Waqar and Kevin!

After failing my first test I had booked a second test on very short notice. Luckily Manju offered me a last minute lesson 2 days before my test, and in 2 hours Manju gave me an in-depth lesson where I learnt tips that I did not learn in my 25+ hours with other instructors! For the first time I felt like an instructor cared about me passing, which helped me stay more confident and relaxed during my test. Thank you so much Manju!

I'm thrilled to share my experience with Kayani's driving lessons, all thanks to Kevin from the support team who pointed me in their direction. These lessons are hands down the best I've ever had. Kay's teaching style is not only comprehensive but also remarkably patient and encouraging. Learning to drive with Kay is an absolute pleasure—they make everything seem so effortless. One of the most impressive aspects of Kay's lessons is their affordability. Despite the top-notch quality of instruction, the prices are very reasonable, making it accessible to everyone. This commitment to providing high-quality education without breaking the bank is truly commendable. Moreover, Kay goes above and beyond to tailor the lessons to each student's needs. Whether you're a complete beginner or looking to refine your skills, Kay adapts their teaching approach to suit your individual learning style. This personalized attention ensures that every student receives the most effective instruction possible. In addition to their excellent teaching skills, Kay is also incredibly flexible and accommodating. They work tirelessly to accommodate your schedule, making it easy to fit lessons into even the busiest of lifestyles. This level of flexibility and reliability makes the entire learning process smooth and stress-free. Furthermore, Kay's passion for teaching shines through in every lesson. Their enthusiasm and dedication to helping students become safe and confident drivers are truly inspiring. It's not just about passing the test—it's about instilling lifelong driving skills that will keep us safe on the road for years to come. Overall, I cannot recommend Kayani's driving lessons highly enough. From their exceptional teaching abilities to their affordability and flexibility, Kay ticks all the boxes and then some. If you're looking for a driving instructor who is thorough, patient, and genuinely cares about your success, look no further than Kayani. You won't regret it!

Driving lessons in Watling FAQ's

Is it better to have 2 hour driving lessons?

For most people learning to drive, 2 hour lessons are more beneficial than 1 hour lessons. There are many reasons for this which include: Reduced learning time overall (can reduce by a third) Reduced costs to the learner (2 hour sessions cost less as they are seen as getting a deal). Speak to your instructor in the Rated Driving app and they will do their best to cater to your requirements.

Is it quicker to pass in an automatic?

Learning in an automatic car has it benefits. The main one that learners like is the fact they do not need to master the clutch that comes in manual cars. As such, generally, there is less to learner so some learners may find it quicker to pass their driving test. And the quicker you pass your test, the less money you'll spend on driving lessons. Please note that automatic driving lessons normally cost more than manual driving lessons.

How many lessons does it take to drive?

According to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) learner drivers need on average 44 hours of professional driving lessons to pass their driving test. To speed up learning, learners can always practice with a family member providing they are the correct age, the car is safe and legal to use and you have the correct car insurance.

Should I learn to drive in a manual or an automatic car?

It's a tough one. Many learners like to take their driving lessons in a manual car as they get the benefit of being able to driving manual and automatic cars, where as having an automatic driving licence means that you will only be allowed to drive automatic cars.

There is change coming though. As we turn to a greener future, electric cars are now becoming popular as they are far more friendly to the environment with the added bonus of them being automatic. The UK Government has said that all combustion engine cars will not be allowed to be sold from 2030 so learning automatic is actually not a bad choice.

Automatic driving lessons generally cost more than manual lessons but learners tend to need less lessons so the cost balances out by the time you pass your driving test.

Is an intensive driving course a good idea?

An intensive driving course can save you time and money as you might need fewer hours' training. There are some downsides though. With normal hourly driving lessons you get to experience many different driving and weather conditions which will allow you to learn how to drive and build confidence in all circumstances.

Normally, an intensive course is far more expensive than hourly lessons as you will be packing in all your lessons into 7-14 day window and taking your driving test at the end. It's a lot of pressure and not for the faint hearted but if you are a quick learner and keen to pass fast, intensive driving lessons could be the right path for you.
