BOOKED YOUR DRIVING TEST ????

Don’t have an instructor for those “few lessons” you “need” and the use of a car just so you can pass?!
If this sounds familiar, it’s worth noting WE ARE NOT HIRE CARS.

Driving instructors are well aware of the many people who book practical tests and then rush around asking every instructor in the local area hoping someone will take you. We get messages from you several times a week! The answer is always the same-no!

So let’s look at why you are you finding it hard to get an instructor to take you on….

The truth is we are busy, and booked up weeks in advance.
We therefore do not take pupils we don’t know and haven’t trained, we concentrate on those we do know and are prepared to put the required hours in.

Why you ask??
Because it takes more than a “few lessons” to assess your ability for a start. We then have to spend time to correct the faults and ensure that you have enough time to practise driving to the safe standard that is required to pass.
We then have to ensure you can consistently drive safely and INDEPENDENTLY WITHOUT HELP….

So hopefully now you can start to see why your kind offer of a “few lessons” is often rejected.

I have never met a student yet who has been able to meet the standard required to pass a test in two lessons, and I would invite any instructor to correct me if I’m wrong.

So why have you booked this test?
Maybe you're in a rush to pass- I get it we want it done ASAP.
Also, it’s expensive learning to drive isn’t it, lessons are costly we understand that, but so is a funeral….

Ask yourself this…(and be honest)….
Would you jump into a pool knowing you aren’t able to swim yet….in the hope you might just survive?
Course you wouldn’t!

So then why book (and or a sit) a test you’ve not prepared for, aren’t at the standard to pass and could risk other peoples life’s all to “have a go” - yes I’m talking about the examiner who has to sit next to you fearing for his life, and the other road users you’ve put at risk all to “have a go”?

So please - if you’ve made it this far…don’t book a test until you have spoke with an instructor willing to take you.
Your blocking up an already back logged system, and will no doubt have to cancel that test when you fail to find an instructor to “hire”.
Making it even more difficult for people who are ready to book a test.

We want you to pass just as much as you want to pass.. and in doing so we will give you the best and honest advice, after all, you will be sharing the road with us and our family and friends! 💖🚙 RMS

THE REALITY OF LEARNING TO DRIVE

Before anyone makes the decision to learn to drive, please consider the following points…

1; You are learning to operate a machine that if used or operated incorrectly, or irresponsibly, can result in serious injury or, even worse, fatality.

2; Your learning process will not be simple, quick or cheap. The co-ordination and spatial awareness takes time to develop - particularly to a point where it becomes second nature.

3; As the driver you are legally responsible for the vehicle, yourself and equally responsible for the safety of others.
Being a learner driver doesn’t excuse you of these responsibilities - nor does it make you immune from prosecution if laws are broken.

4; The importance of knowing your subject matter should not be underestimated or taken lightly.
The theory test isn’t just an obstacle on the way to your practical test.
Revise thoroughly and aim to pass with the highest score possible.
The more knowledge that you learn and retain can potentially make a massive difference to all round safety.

5: We are all individuals who learn at different rates.
Friends or family may have reached the standard more quickly, but don’t treat the learning process as a competition. Equally, guard against becoming demoralised if you’re taking longer to learn than you thought.
Don’t let pride get in the way of safety.

6; Always listen to your Instructor and take on board their advice.
An Instructor’s advice is more likely to be correct and up to date than that of friends or family - no matter how well meaning. Your Instructor is also the best person to advise you when you’re ready to take a test.

7; When you have passed your test please remember that a test pass means that you’re safe enough to continue learning on your own. It takes years of experience to become a truly good driver, so never assume that you’re the finished article.
We never stop learning, nor should you.
Enjoy your journey ❤️

Distracted driving is the act of driving while engaging in other activities which distract the driver's attention away from the road.
Distractions are shown to compromise the safety of the driver, passengers, pedestrians, and people in other vehicles.

The top five driver distractions:

Mobile phones (talking and texting)
Adjusting vehicle settings.
Passengers.
Eating, drinking and smoking.
External distractions.

Stay focused and stay safe ❤️

Top Driving Test Fails!

The hazard perception test consists of fourteen video clips, each lasting one minute so don’t feel pressured. In this time, you need to click on any hazards you see, and you need to achieve 44 out of 75 points to pass.

For all small business owners. This is the truth.

The unfortunate truth of owning and running a business.

Running a business is really hard.

What they don’t tell you is that it can cause severe stress and anxiety, and drains you mentally to the point of depression in even the most laid back people.

People will talk about you, compare you to others, use you, they will view you as a service and not a person anymore.

Friends and family will expect discounts and people will value you and your hard work less than a big chain store.

You have to worry about if you forget to email/message someone back, are they going to think it was on purpose? Did you disappoint them? Will they hold that against you? When in reality you just can’t get to everyone’s messages and emails.

Starting up and running a successful business puts incredible strain on personal lives and relationships, many of which fail because there is just often no work life balance. You need to be the director, the worker, the admin, the marketing team, the accountant, the cleaner..... All whilst being a parent, a husband or a wife, family support, friend... it’s one of the hardest things you will try and balance

There’s a reason you don’t see many people succeed in small businesses after 5 years. If they are successful they are overwhelmed. It takes a toll. It’s freaking exhausting. Especially the past couple of years when so much has been out of our control.

Here’s a small reminder that we are just normal people with hectic lives.

Be kind, be patient, support small businesses…….and hopefully more of us will stick around! ❤️

RMS wishes happy Eid-al-Fitr to all its member groups, followers, and to all those who are celebrating today.

Eid-al-Fitr marks the end of the fasting, which lasts for one month.

Muslims start the day with Eid Prayers in Mosques, which are followed by family celebrations and feasts. It's a festive season of colors, love, peace, and blessings.

May peace and blessings prevail everywhere.

Happy Eid Mubarak to all my past and present pupils who are celebrating. Thank you for your continued support 🙂

As anybody with Muslim friends is most likely aware 2 billion Muslims around the world start our month of Ramadan tomorrow..

(Refraining from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset for 30 days.)

It is also a time for spiritual reflection, praying, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends!

Fasting In Ramadan also purifies the mind,body and soul.. leading to greater clarity sensitivity and health!

A time when we become acutely aware of the unlimited abundance we have been blessed with!

Mostly we are made to feel the hunger that many experience on a day to day basis round the world as a normal consequence of their circumstances... this leads to greater contribution to charities and selflessness!

I hope that has explained it to all the people who quite often ask why we fast!

Most importantly please respect all fellow Muslims (friends, Adi’s, clients) over the next 4 weeks ...

As everyone knows every year on this blessed month I cut down my hours and everything I profit goes to charity..

The law around using a mobile phone while driving is becoming stricter. 📱

Everyone knows it's an offence to use a phone when driving – it's a distraction and is dangerous. An offence is triggered whenever a driver holds and uses a device, regardless of why they’re holding it.

From March 25 the definition of using a phone will be expanded to include 👇

❗️ illuminating the screen 📱

❗️ checking the time 📱

❗️ checking notifications 📱

❗️ unlocking the device 📱

❗️ making, receiving, or rejecting a telephone or internet based call 📱

❗️ sending, receiving or uploading oral or written content 📱

❗️ sending, receiving or uploading a photo or video 📱

❗️ utilising camera, video, or sound recording 📱

❗️ drafting any text 📱

❗️ accessing any stored data such as documents, books, audio files, photos, videos, films, playlists, notes or messages 📱

❗️ accessing an app 📱

❗️ accessing the internet 📱

“Don’t risk your life or the life of someone else just to do something that isn’t very important in the grand scheme of things.”

Looking for a driving instructor!

1. We are NOT waiting for you to call (week before you turn 17) as we've been fully booked for several weeks and like myself, months, plan ahead chose an instructor and get your name down on their waiting list!

2. Asking "how many hours do I need?" when the first few lessons have been completed, is like asking "how long is a piece of string?” Remember it’s a skill for life be patient and enjoy your journey!
Rome wasn’t built overnight!

3. When asked upon enquiry whether you've driven before, does not mean in a carpark/forest with your mates/parents (illegal too)!

4. The "cost" should NOT be your no. 1 priority!
We teach a life skill and it’s fine to pay £35-£40 for riding lessons, music lessons, football coaching etc. I can assure you that it's more dangerous to drive than the above!
Cheap is not always good!
Good is not always cheap!

5. When you cancel short notice, we charge! It costs US money as we all budget the hours we need to teach to live. If you weren't paid for missing work!

6. "My mate passed in 5/10hrs..." Really? We hear it all the time! Believe what you want but I doubt it!

7. When you fail, take responsibility for it... It's a grown-up thing to do. It wasn't because the examiner didn't like you, it was a "Monday", it was a "Friday", end month etc YOU failed because you didn't drive to the required standard expected.

8. If you fail, you can't retake a test for 28 working days FOR A REASON... You need additional training.
It's no good just taking another test you failed because you didn’t reach the standard required!

9. We, as instructors have heard all the stories about "my last instructor was unreliable etc" and in many cases, it's due to being charged for late cancellation of lessons (Our wages)!

10. We pay a lot to earn our qualifications, pass our exams, run our car i.e. fuel, insurance, tax, tyres, licence... When we tell you a certain way to do something, it's for a good reason so hearing "My dad said..." really doesn't help your cause!

11. Be patient with yourself - it takes times to learn. It does not happen overnight.
Learning to drive will probably be one of the most difficult dangerous skills you ever learn!

12. Don't stay up till 2am the night before and expect to be sharp the next day. No drinking, smoking, drugs etc ....we know when you've been at it.

13. Practice makes perfect - practice practice and practice no lesson goes to waste when learning how to drive, we learn something new each time we get behind the wheel with different scenarios and situations, you will know when you are ready to leave us when you are doing everything confidently and independently!

14. The greater the effort the sweeter the reward ...so pay attention and ask as many questions as you need to ask 😉

Whoever you are and whoever you learn with enjoy the journey ! 💯

Have A Good Day 🚙 💨

📢FREE ADVICE ALERT 📢

A word of advice to people out there booking tests without either having an instructor or booking without checking with their instructor first, quite simply DON’T do it, also if you are phoning around for cheap lessons DON’T bother, check out the prices at the pumps, our running costs have shot up.

Your chances of getting an instructor to take you to test because:
Your instructor is ill, on holidays etc or you just want to hire our cars for the test, it’s not going to happen, every reason you give, we have heard before!

We are under strict instructions from the DVSA not to present candidates for test who are not ready. Lots of tests slots are being wasted by candidates who don’t attend, due to having no one to take them.

With regards cheap lessons, phone around, try getting an instructor at any price, we are all snowed under and we are trying to clear our diary’s, so IF you can get an instructor consider yourself lucky.

If you haven’t got an instructor, don’t book a test because you will lose your test fee!

At the moment instructors are under immense pressure with existing pupils.

Kind regards
RMS team
