8 out of 10 pass first time with Uncle Joe! Real Life Case Studies

Driving Lessons in Longsight

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

There are plenty of driving schools in Longsight 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 Longsight, 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 Longsight.

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 Longsight, 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 Longsight 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!

"What can I say about Joe and Uncle Joe’s Driving School!! Well, I passed my test on Monday with 3 weeks of tuition and with my hand on my heart I don’t think I would have been able to do it if it wasn’t for Joe, honestly. I have had two previous driving instructors and always felt that they held me back and were just after my money (Joe is the polar opposite of this). With Joe what you get with in comparison to other driving instructors is the confidence he instils into you from the very beginning. He is more of a coach rather than an instructor. He puts you at ease and knows when to push you to reach the next step and gives you simple analogies to make you understand where you need to get to. When I met with Joe for a taster session I had already had around 20-25 hours in the car with other instructors and I was far from the finished article (I knew this myself). After the taster session with Joe he knew my driving test was 3 weeks away and did everything he possible could to make me the finished article and he even came to work with me for a couple of hours on his day off. He pushed me to my limits in a carefully considered way to make me a safe and competent driver. The guidance from Joe well and truly paid off and when it came to test day I had a couple of hours in the car to beforehand to polish and finesses my driving (I would recommend this) and what do you know! I PASSED with 2 minors, yes 2 minors and it is all down to Joe and his help!!! If you yourself are looking to learn to drive or know anyone that is, get in touch with Joe. He is by far the best in Manchester if not the world. Cheers Dave p.s. One thing you need to know is that he also an awesome bloke!! Thank you so much, Joe."  Read More
