Choosing a driving school

Your choice of a driving school is as important as is your choice of a car. Selecting the right or wrong instructor and teaching methodology can energise or sap your will to drive.

Liking him/her boosts tangibly your success prospects since learning while enjoying is almost always the winning formula.
