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

Driving Lessons in Withington

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

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

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 Withington, 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 Withington 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!

"Joe has been very friendly and supportive. After spending 30+ hours with a national chain it felt like it was dragging for a very long time and that they were just interested in the hours I was spending. I eventually decided to go with a local instructor with the hope that my lessons would be more personal, flexible and most importantly consistently without any gaps or cancellations. Joe was top of the list with his professional looking website and good reviews, I am glad to say that all my expectations were met. Joe is flexible and accommodating to all my educational needs. I found every lesson went much further than it did with other instructors and was much more stimulating. The information I received each session was very specific and useful, as were the roads I was taught on. Good habits were drilled into me from my first lesson which thankfully became second nature under the pressure of the test. Nothing came up in my test that I hadn't been taught specifically by Joe, I knew exactly what was expected of me by the examiner and so I felt prepared and confident. Thank you Joe!"  Read More
