How to decide which driving instructor is best for you in Corby
We understand that you'll want a driving school who:
- Builds your confidence
- Makes learning fun
- Won’t charge a fortune!
For that reason, here are 4 easy steps to make sure you choose the right driving school in Corby
1. Compare reviews
Reading reviews is a great way to anticipate what your experience will be like with the driving schools in Corby. Be sure to select your review sites carefully - some can be a bit dodgy. Make sure you are reading reviews from legitimate customers.
2. Beware of terms and conditions
If you’re like most people, the chances are you usually tick the box to say you’ve read the terms and conditions even if you haven’t. But in this scenario, it’s important that you read them carefully. Some driving schools have hidden policies, like making your driving lessons expire if you don’t use them all within a short timeframe. Don’t get caught out!
3. Ensure you are able switch instructors
Getting stuck with an instructor you don't get on with can be rough. Check that your driving school in Corbycan match you with a new instructor easily if you decide you want to swap. Not all schools will have enough instructors to facilitate this, so don’t book until you’re sure.
4. Avoid long waiting times
The last thing you want is to book your driving lessons and then find out that you can’t get started for another few weeks! Many driving schools in Corbywon’t tell you their waiting times upfront unless you ask directly. So again, don’t get caught out!

Test tips from driving instructors in Corby
Driving instructors in Corby have shared thier insider tips for passing your test.
1. Practise driving on rural roads
Our driving instructors in Corby say that rural roads can be difficult because usually, you’re permitted to drive on them at the national speed limit, but that’s not always an appropriate speed.
Extra practice on country road driving will help you to set the right speed for the journey.
2. Drive defensively
When you’re driving in urban settings you need to be aware that not all drivers will drive well, or even follow the highway code! Make sure that you anticipate the behaviour of other drivers and adapt your own driving accordingly.
3. Directions aren’t the be all and end all.
You’ll receive directions from both the examiner and a sat nav at different points in your driving test. If you realise you’re in the wrong lane at the last minute, it might be dangerous to correct yourself. If that’s the case, it’s fine to make a wrong turn - it’s more important to drive safely than to follow directions accurately, and our local driving instructors say that you’re unlikely to be penalised.
Manual or automatic lessons?
Before you step foot inside an instructors car you have to decide between manual and automatic driving lessons.
With an automatic licence, you’re qualified to drive automatic cars, whereas with a manual driving licence, you’re qualified to drive both manuals and automatics. This can make buying a car an easier task as you can drive both transmissions.
Cost is also another factor as manual instructors tend to be more common and therefore lessons can be cheaper.Some drivers prefer the control a manual can give while driving too.
Taking automatics driving lessons may allow you to pass faster as you have less to learn such as clutch control.Driving in heavy traffic can also be more straightforward as there's no clutch and gear changes to worry about. So if you're after a motor to drive about Corbys busy roads, an automatic may be for you.
Both transmissions come with their pros and cons, so think carefully before making your decision!
