Driving Lessons in Levenshulme

Hi, I’m Uncle Joe and I’m a Driving Instructor covering the Levenshulme area of Manchester.

There are plenty of driving schools in Levenshulme for you to choose from, but there’s no point in trying to learn from someone you don’t trust so let’s get to know each other…

Driving Instructor in Levenshulme, Manchester,

My name is Joe, but most of my pupils call me Uncle Joe. I’ve been a driving instructor for over 6 years and worked for some of the biggest names in the industry but now I’m bringing my own approach and expertise to the learner drivers of Levenshulme.

ADI and DSA Approved

You’ll be glad to know that I’m a fully qualified and DSA approved Driving Instructor – that means I’m registered with the Driving Standards Authority, I’ve passed advanced practical and theoretical driving tests as well as having proved my ability to teach other people, and of course, I’ve been CRB checked for your safety.

It means that you can be reassured I know what I’m doing (I get to display a snazzy green badge in my car to prove it) and that I’m committed to what I do. And, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve maintained a brilliant pass rate – 8 out of 10 of my pupils pass first time.

What’s involved in my driving lessons?

I think the key to success when learning to drive is to master the basics before venturing on to the bigger, more challenging stuff. It’s like building a house, ensure you have good foundations and the rest of the build is a breeze!

A flexible approach is important and I tailor each lesson to the individual. There are no set timescales; the pace of the course will be set by how quickly you master the skills. There is no point in rushing through everything without making sure you are confident in each and every task.

I’m always looking for ways to improve my driving lessons…

I’m one of the very few driving instructors in Levenshulme, Manchester to embrace the power of technology. I love a good gadget and my iPad has proven itself to be really useful, enabling me to screen videos, provide mock Theory and Hazard Perception tests and book Theory and Practical driving tests in-car. Geeky but brilliant!

And finally…

Choosing a driving instructor in Levenshulme isn’t easy. Quality and price can vary greatly and given how low the average pass rate is and how expensive a test is, you’ll want to choose an instructor that will give you the best chance of passing first time. Learning to drive with Uncle Joe is one way to do just that!

Take a look around the site, see what I have to offer – maybe even give me a trial run by booking one of my £10 taster sessions if you’re still not sure, but whatever you decide, thanks for taking the time to visit Uncle Joe’s Driving School!

"Boom. What a journey it has been, from the very first day I met Uncle Joe through to this very day - 1 year 7 months has passed. Uncle Joe is truly a God sent, after I was introduced to him by a couple of friends from church who had nothing but praises about him, I knew I had to give him a try. Our lessons were always very focused, with an aim to achieve something by the end of the lesson, and information/theory is always taught in bite sized chunks so that you won't forget the key points. Uncle Joe not only taught me how to drive safely and well, but also to be exam smart. He is a very resourceful instructor and will always have something up his sleeves to help me understand a concept with his diagrams or help with revision for the theory exam. In addition, he will make sure that I was familiarized with the test routes and conditions many many many many many times over so that I had no choice but to pass the driving test. If he screams at you for something, its only because he wants you to do well and not make the same mistake. He is committed to your success, and he truly loves his students. In addition to his role as an instructor, he is also an amazing friend, mentor and brother in Christ and it has been my privilege and blessing getting to know him through the conversations that we had, encouraging and blessing one another (even praying for me before the test). Like all good things that are meant to be shared, if you're looking for a driving instructor, look no further - Uncle Joe is the answer. -- Warmest Regards, Timothy Tan"  Read More
