Why Driving Instructor Reviews Matter

Written by Sean B.

As a student ready to learn to drive, you need to have confidence in your driving instructor and the driving school they represent. They should be looking to offer the best possible service to you, which involves having impeccable reviews that allow you to feel more secure. Looking for the best driving instructor Sydney has to offer takes time, which means that they need to be able to stand out for you. With positive reviews from other customers, driving instructors feel more legitimate and trustworthy. 

When was the last time you went on a holiday or ate out at a restaurant? And did you go and look at the reviews and feedback from previous customers before you booked? 

Most people do look for reviews and feedback from real people before they decide to book something new in their lives, and driving schools and instructors are not exempt from that level of research.

Reviews Matter

The opinions of real life people are counted by the masses. A company can always talk about how amazing they are and talk about how they are the best in the world at what they do. The problem is that a company WOULD have this opinion of themselves; it’s a sales tactic to draw people in and it works a lot of the time. The thing is, it’s something people are sceptical of because it’s not from the opinion of a real person who has used that service. 

Having consumer-generated ratings and reviews is far more valuable to a business than the company line - even with driving instructors! If you are reading reviews for driving instructors that have more bad experiences than good ones, this should be a red flag for you not to go with that particular instructor. Another red flag is a company that hides their customer reviews. Their marketing strategies should be inclusive of the personal and real reviews of previous students.

Trusting Reviews & Experience

As a student, you’re more likely to trust the reviews you read online when they are from real people. You will also be more likely to trust a driving instructor if they have the right experience behind them. Not many people love to learn from a newly qualified driver as they haven't got the hours built up on the road. If you are looking for a Sydney driving instructor, look for someone who has had a few years of experience IN SYDNEY - not just on country roads. 

City driving is often very different from long-distance driving between states, and as a student, you’ll be eager to learn how to tackle those roads. City driving comes with more rules, more regulations and that means that you are going to be looking for a patient, experienced driving instructor with the reviews that back this up.

Understand Your Needs First!

Sydney driving instructors are there to help you to learn, but that means that they have to meet your needs as a keen learner. When you are seeking help from a driving instructor, make sure that you look for those who have worked with beginners before - and then book in your lesson!
