BLT – Driving Skills For Life

“I passed my test with one minor last week after learning with Andy and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructer.”

“Past my test a week ago with Andy he’s been absolutely amazing calm and proffesional.”

“Andy is clearly a very experienced instructor, making me feel at ease, especially just before my test. He is really calm, and aims to prepare his students for independent driving aswell as the driving test. I would 100% recommend him as an instructor.”

BLT (driving skills for life), is a well established Sheffield driving school with over fifteen years of experience helping pupils to pass the test and drive safely. Fully structured training keeps pupils on track and ensures maximum value. Using coaching methods it provides a supportive yet challenging approach. Over time pupils are helped to recognise their strengths and weaknesses and are shown the best way to accelerate progress. All training is based on individual’s needs and priority is given in developing safe and responsible drivers as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

BLT promise to develop the individual’s driving skills that they not only need to pass the test but to become a confident and economic driver thus saving pounds in years to come and help to ensure their safety and security on the road. While some test routes are shown the pupil will not become bored by driving around them every lesson, after all once they pass the test they may never drive on a test route again. To gain confidence they will be taken further away from home to experience as many different roads as they can and are likely to drive on after taking their test. For instance, if someone lives in Sheffield they may be taken to drive in Barnsley or Rotherham. A special extended lesson is given at no extra charge to do some more realistic and practical aspects of driving. These include route planning, visits to busy shopping areas and towns, the school/college run or a journey they are likely to take to work.

By following the syllabus developed by the Driving Standards Agency, the candidate will be helped to pass the theory, hazard perception test and the practical test. The Driving Standards Agency are the people who will be conducting the driving test so it pays to get the best driving tuition possible. The national first time pass rate for the practical test averages 43%. BLT ‘s current pass rates are 71.4 % first time, and 91.4 % combined first /second time passes. The remaining being third time or more. Unfortunately this is either due to a persons individual nervous disposition, or going for test against advice, thus failing repeatedly. Saying that, the candidate is only allowed to do the test if deemed safe to complete. In the case of a pupil considered unfit, or a danger, then the car will be withheld.

The firm delivers a variety of driving tuition to individuals, which are designed to enhance your driving abilities. With one to one tuition backed up with online learning, the business also has friendly personnel enabling clients to relax and succeed in their driving quest.

With being a sole trader you are guaranteed a one to one fully qualified instructor, BLT – Driving Skills For Life has 16 years of experience, last recording at the very top end of a grade B, and being a member of professional bodies such as the Driving Standards Agency, Diamond Advanced Instructors Association, Learn Safe Drive Safe campaign, and The Driving Instructors Association.
