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

Driving Lessons in M12, Manchester

Hi, I’m Uncle Joe and I’m a Driving Instructor covering the M12 area of Manchester.

There are plenty of driving schools in the M12 area 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 M12, 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 the M12 area.

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 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 the M12 area 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!

"He helped me since the beginning; from booking the practical test for me even when he was on a vacation in Florida. He also appreciates that I had spent a lot of money with my previous instructor and he came up with an amazing plan of 10 hours intensive lessons to correct my bad habits and improve my driving skills. Joe picked up my mistakes from the very 1st lesson and did not waste any more time since. He is very genuine teaching his students to be a safe driver and he wants you to pass the test immediately! (not like other instructors who might be happy if you keep on failing because they can rip off more money from you) He is also very patient and wants you to get involve during the lessons. He always checked my understanding and every time I made a mistake, he'd made me practice the skills until I got it right and got it imprinted in my brain. So yes, after 10 hours of lessons, I passed my first test with Joe with only ONE MINOR FAULT! I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT! Thank you so much for your hard work and patience! You have made my life a lot easier with this licence! Highly recommended and I have no doubt that anyone could pass first time with Joe. I wish I could have found him sooner!!"  Read More
