Re: trainee licence

I still remember my first lesson on pink, all the way there I was thinking, I can do this, I know I can do this but I ended up holding the wheel more than he did.

Just don't lose sight of using pink as a learning tool.

Good luck.

Re: trainee licence

Hey Pricey,

Have a really good read round the forum for any relevant posts that might help you decide who to go with. Whatever you choose make sure you read the contract VERY carefully and make sure you know how long you are tied to them for and how much notice you have to give should you want to leave.  wink

We all started somewhere, I remember my first day/lesson on my pink. Looking back I realised just how much I've changed over time and just how white I must have looked on that first lesson  yikes lol

Re: trainee licence

Hi

I'm still on my Pink, only had it since End of February. I love teaching my pupils. The only worry i have before each lesson, is wondering what route i'm going to go on. As a normal driver, you only ever drive down the roads you need to, for instance i lived in Worcester most of my life, but only know probably about 10% of all the roads,  but when your teaching you need to go down all sorts of roads,knowing the best places to do manovers etc,  my fear is thinking i might take a wrong turn, then get lost. Of course if this happens,i'll have to be brave and make out that i know where im going. I'm sure after a few yaers, i'll know every road like the back of my hand, but untill then, i'll just have to do my best.

Best of look with finding a school.

Well let's hope Bill's Plant blooms for you then.

Is Bill Plant established in your area?  Does he do loads of advertising in your area?  If the answers are no the how is he going to provide you with any pupils?
