High Grade Driving Instructors - Pass Rates
Pass Rates (link to UK Pass Rates)
To be honest I'm not quite sure why I started this page!
I've been a Driving Instructor for 21 years and I've been asked so many times what my pass rate is. It's probably one of the most meaningless questions as every instructor I know, and thats thousands, claim to have an above average rate. Not one has ever said "I'm below average".
So my advice about pass rates is ask, but expect a bit of blag. If someone claims an 80% or higher rate then I would be quite suspicious as this would be very rare. The problem is there are no checks, there is no proof - Instructors seem to make it up as they go along
Perhaps the better questions are to do with their experience, lesson flexibility, support for theory test and lesson hand outs, the progress cards used to monitor how well you are doing. You could ask about Pass Plus, motorway lessons, advanced driver training, advice on insurance, how to practice in your own car and a whole host of stuff but don't bother about Pass Rates!
I'll extend this page with some more helpful stuff soon.
