Operating a Machine and Driving

I’m sure we’ve all seen examples of terrible driving at home and whilst on our holidays abroad and just because the driver has passed a test it doesn’t mean they are competent drivers, yet! Good driving skills are gained through both expert instruction and probably just as importantly, experience. If you are based in Somerset, finding a decent driving school in Bridgwater can be difficult but if you perform your due diligence you should be able to find a school, and indeed an instructor that has the perfect combination of experience, people skills and patience. Before you decide on any one driving school, be sure to check the following:

  • Pass Rate – Any decent driving school will be more than happy to share their pass rate with you. Schools with a low pass rate in comparison to others should be investigated further before you engage their services.
  • Online Testimonials – Highly regarded and long-established driving schools should be able to point you towards positive feedback for satisfied customers, both on their website and on independent review sites.
  • Don’t Ignore your Gut Feeling – When you first meet your instructor, you will be able to ascertain if the two of you can work together with the shared objective of passing your test first time. First impressions do count, don’t ignore that gut feeling!


Most driving schools in the UK will offer you a discounted first lesson as a form of trial. If you feel comfortable with your instructor and wish to continue, you can pay per lesson or book a block of lessons at a discounted price.
