Superdrive Academy expand into new territories

Driving Schools in Salisbury

Superdrive Academy is going from strength to strength and within just 6 months have now expanded into a neighboring city, Salisbury.

There are many driving schools in Salisbury and Superdrive Academy have taken an opportunity to join these driving schools and offer their services to the people of Salisbury and neighboring towns and villages. Although there are quite a number of driving instructors in Salisbury it doesn't mean to say that the market isn't big enough to accommodate another driving school. Competition is healthy as they say.

We're also proud to say that we have been voted best driving school for business and excellence for two years on the run. This is a major achievement for us and one that we wear with pride. We provide a truly professional service and all of our driving instructors are trained to a very high standard. We are also ORDIT registered. If you're not sure what ORDIT means, you can see an overview on the DVSA website here.

We provide a whole host of driver training related services, these include learner drivers right through to training to become a driving instructor. We also offer Category B+E training too. We have just taken on an instructor who specializes in intensive driving courses so this gives us more to offer to the general public.

We often get asked how many driving lessons would it take for a new driver to reach test standards and pass their driving test. Our honest answer is "it depends". There's no one clear answer to this question as it does depend on a few varying factors. I'll try to list just a few:

  • How often they take lessons
  • How long are the lessons
  • How do they best take in information
  • Do they have any learning disabilities
  • Are they taking any private practice
  • Are they using any other resource such as books, videos or apps for homestudy
All in all, the DVSA have published figures which attempt to inform the public how many hours a learner driver will take to complete a course and reach test standard. This is in the region of approximately 45 hours. Now, as mentioned above, there are factors which can reduce the amount of hours needed, and indeed, some people may require more?

If you have any questions about any of our services then please contact usu through our website

One Year On

One Year On

I recently caught up with one of the local driving schools in Chorley who's business is called Bob Medley School of Motoring. It's been one year since Bob got on social media so it was nice to bump into him for a catch-up. Bob originally signed up with me at Superdrive Academy where I deliver driver training to driving instructors in Andover and also do social media marketing with Get Your Own Driving School.

I have seen Bob driving around the town on occasions, well it's hard not to bump into local driving instructors if I'm honest because Chorley isn't exactly a huge place. I can literally see all of the driving instructors in one day. Thee's about 20 of them which is surprising due to the size of the town.

I asked Bob is he still enjoying the job? His smile grew from ear to ear and she said "I'm absolutely loving it". He went on to tell me that it's still the best career move he's ever done and he hasn't looked back.

He told me that not only is he loving the job but it also fits around his family routine very well which is a bonus. After spending just 10 minutes talking with Bob, I could sense a huge wave of enthusiasm. This was the same enthusiasm I saw when I first met him.

I'd seen Bob's Facebook posts from time to time where he posted about his pupils passing their driving test. He was obviously doing a good job because he seemed to be posting on Facebook a couple of times per week.

One year on, he had progressed from being a novice at social media to being an accomplished poster on Facebook. Not only that, he was also making a great success at running his business.

It's always good for me to see my clients still enjoying the job, it gives me great pleasure. It's almost the same feeling you get when a pupil passes their driving test but in some way, a lot better.

Thanks for reading this Blog.
