When deciding to take driving lessons, there is no other way around it: you should go for the best driving instructor and driving school, even if this will cost you more than otherwise. After all, you will have it for quite a long time afterwards, so you should consider it as an investment rather than a fee.
Just to make things clear, there are quite a few driving schools in the city. And you needn’t necessarily go for the most expensive one. But, at the same time, you needn’t take it out of the equation. It is usually the best driving instructors, with the most experience, that are hired at these driving schools. And being taught by the best is something that all of us should aspire.
So let’s take into consideration the case in which you opted for a less expensive driving school and instructor. If you will do that, than your driving lessons might sum up to certain amount (as said, this is just an example, so we won’t give you any number – it is up to you to search for the fees). For this less expensive price, you will get a less experienced instructor, who will most likely not know everything that you actually need to know.
Furthermore, since it is a less expensive school, the cars on which you will learn might not be top notch either. So your job of passing the test and having your driver’s license from the first try are diminished. But let’s assume that you do so.
Since you were taught by a rather inexperienced instructor, we may further assume that you may not know what to do in any situation that arises. In this unfortunate way, you may end up back on the square one, as a pedestrian, attempting again to pass the test. And this will need another investment from your part, which will increase the initial fee that you’ve already paid.
But let us assume that you didn’t pass the test from the first time. In this case, when you’ve failed the first time, additional lessons (and thus fees) will be needed – so taking driving courses may end up more expensive than you initially thought. In one way or another, you will still need to lessons provided by an experienced driving instructor.
Keep in mind, though, that the biggest fees don’t necessarily mean that you will be taught by the best and most experienced driving instructors. The purpose of this article is to make you aware of the fact that the decision of choosing a driving school shouldn’t be taken lightly and that you should consider paying a bit more from the start, to avoid additional costs.
In some cases, when a future driver takes the test for the 4th or even 5th time, the costs may rise with 50% from the initial sum. So if you paid less from the start, you may end up paying more on the long run (whether you failed the test, whether your driving license has been revoked, and so on).
So when taking driving lessons, don’t think cheap – you may end up losing more than if you went to the most expensive driving school.
