During the first encounter, the instructor establishes what the new student requires in terms of lessons. ‘Achievers’ had students that picked up immediately, others that needed a substantial amount of lessons, and others that were ‘in between. ‘Honesty’ is one of our prime values; therefore, should the instructor see that the new student can potentially obtain his license in a few months then both instructor and student will work together to achieve that aim.
After the initial lesson, the instructor will discuss with the new students how much they are willing to invest in their intent. For instance, if theoretically one student requires around 30 lessons until he/she is ready to apply for the final examination, then the student will choose how those lessons will be distributed within the next days.
Some students are more eager to learn as quickly as possible, while others favour a more traditional once-a-week class. It’s up to you! But most importantly, it is up to you to be honest with your fellow instructor and be sincere in how you are feeling throughout the learning process.
Once again, the notion of ‘honesty’ applies throughout – if the student wants to be licensed within 3 months but by doing a few classes as possible, then the instructor will advise the new trainee that this might not be the case.
‘Achievers Motoring School’ offers primarily ‘manual’ car tuition, but we are planning to open up our services to ‘automatic’ in the near future. We personally advise our students to take up manual as it gives the competence/qualification to drive any kind of car.
Furthermore, lessons can take place at odd hours. For instance, when last year, one student had his examination at 8 o’clock, the examiner found it no problem to fix a lesson at 6 to make sure that the student was completely ready to succeed in the important exam that followed.
Therefore, time-wise, ‘Achievers’ is very flexible and always seeks to accommodate the needs of the students. Lessons can be 45 minutes minimum, and two hours maximum.
The cars that are utilized for the lessons are top-notch in terms of accessibility, hygiene, and handling. The vehicles are air-conditioned to make the lessons more comfortable for who’s learning, power -breaks , power-steering, and adjustable seats that are convenient enough to accommodate anyone (seats can even be moved down for shorter people).
Finally, the student is always picked up from his own pick-up point and dropped off at whichever destination is need. Most importantly, the instructors always pick up their students right on time, and just in case they might arrive a tad late, the student would always be advised before.
