Learning to drive with a female instructor

Rated Driving provides both automatic and manual driving lessons specifically designed for female learners. Building a positive relationship with your instructor is crucial for productive driving lessons, and having a comfortable learning environment is essential for effective learning.

However, finding a female instructor can be a challenge since they are less common (with only around 10,000 female driving instructors in the UK).

What’s the difference between a male and female instructor?

The effectiveness of a driving instructor is not determined by gender but depends on the instructor’s teaching style, experience, and the student’s learning style.

Both male and female instructors have to meet the same qualifications and standards, and the most important factor when choosing an instructor is comfort and rapport with the instructor.

When choosing an instructor, it is also important to consider their qualifications, experience, and pass rates. Ultimately, the goal is to find an instructor who can help you become a safe and confident driver.

Learn more about why would you want a female driving instructor

Yes, there are fewer female driving instructors compared to male driving instructors in the UK. Out of the approximately 40,000 Advanced Driving Instructors (ADIs) in the UK, only a quarter of them are female.

All of our driving instructors have to go through a strict vetting process to be able to be part of our platform, so you can be confident that when you connect with one of our female driving instructors you are in safe hands.

The decision of choosing a female or male driving instructor is a personal one and depends on several factors such as your comfort level, learning style, and preference.

It is important to choose an instructor that you feel comfortable with, as this will make the learning process more enjoyable and effective. Therefore, if you feel more comfortable learning from a female instructor, then it may be a good idea to choose one.

However, the effectiveness of a driving instructor is not solely determined by gender, but rather by their teaching style, experience, and qualifications. Therefore, it is crucial to choose an instructor who is qualified, experienced, and can help you become a safe and confident driver, regardless of their gender.

The gender of your driving instructor may or may not make a difference in your learning experience, as it is subjective and varies from person to person. Some students may feel more comfortable learning from an instructor of the same gender, while others may not have a preference. The effectiveness of a driving instructor is not solely determined by their gender, but rather by their teaching style, experience, and qualifications.

It is important to choose an instructor who you feel comfortable with, as this will make the learning process more enjoyable and effective. However, it is equally important to consider the instructor’s qualifications, experience, and pass rates. Ultimately, the most important thing is to find an instructor who can help you become a safe and confident driver, regardless of their gender.

Learn more about whether you should have a male or female driving instructor

Rated Driving allocates instructors based on the learner’s requirements mentioned in their enquiry. This includes factors such as preferred schedule, automatic or manual, and any other specific requests.

In addition, Rated Driving also uses the learner’s postcode to match them with local instructors in their area. This helps ensure that the learner receives a suitable instructor who can meet their needs and is conveniently located.

This is because some female instructors may have full schedules or may not be available in the learner’s area. However, Rated Driving will do their best to match the learner with an instructor who meets their requirements, including their preference for a female instructor.

If learners have any questions or concerns about their inquiry, they can always contact Rated Driving’s learner support team for assistance.
