Should I think about a driving school or instructor’s pass rate?
You can think about it but whether it will tell you anything meaningful is another matter. You’ll need to be aware of the context surrounding any figures you’re given.
An instructor could have a 100% pass rate but if they’ve only had one student, it’s kind of pointless. Similarly, if a driving school takes all its passes into consideration, its likely they’ll all have pretty good pass rates. If you really want to know, then perhaps a better question to ask might be ‘how many people passed first, second or third time?’
The most important thing about your instructor and driving school is that they give you the support you need in order to learn to drive. Remember that it’s you that’s paying them so you need to be comfortable with your progress and the teaching.
Whether you’re learning to drive in a friend or relative’s car, or have just passed your test (good job) you’ll need car insurance. Like a good instructor, your insurance should be about what’s suits you, so use our car insurance comparison service to make sure you compare your options and find the right deal for you.
