Update for my pupils

February 2022 update.

At the moment the DVSA  are suggesting driving instructors and their pupils continue to wear a face covering during lessons in line with government guidance that suggests people continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where they may come into contact with other people they do not normally meet. 

James Travis

Approved Driving Instructor

Pupil and instructor safety is paramount, so I am introducing new measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in-car, please see my updated “Terms and Conditions” for details.  You will be expected to use face coverings during your driving lesson and on your driving test until further notice.    

In addition, to reduce the risk further, I will also be limiting the number of pupil lessons per day to 3, and this will be reviewed each month, with a view to phasing in further slots as the situation improves.  

Many thanks and stay safe,

Danson passed first time

James is an excellent instructor. His lesson style allowed us to pin point my strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the test thus paying more attention to the latter. Having done some mock tests with him, I was very confident during my actual test and therefore my pass on the first attempt came as no surprise. I highly recommend Travis School of Motoring to anyone wishing to have an enlightening yet exciting learning experience as mine.

Anna passed 

James is a brilliant and motivating instructor. My lessons were always enjoyable and focused on areas that I found trickier so that I felt prepared not only for my test but future driving too. It was particularly helpful to talk through my mistakes and potential scenarios as this helped me to understand both why I was doing things and how to improve in the future rather than just going through the motions. I'd really recommend James to anyone wanting to learn to drive.Thanks for all your help!

Josh passed first time

James is an excellent instructor, and is very thorough with his teaching. He is friendly, patient, and informative, and always at hand to help answer any questions. He helped make my learning experience comfortable and very enjoyable, and I would certainly recommend him to anybody. (My younger sister is now learning with James).

Best of all, since passing my test a month ago, I have felt safe, confident, and competent as a new driver, all of which I attribute to James's great instructing.

Ellis passed

James is a very professional and most defiantly patient driving instructor! He kept me motivated and gave me all of the confidence I required to pass my driving test first time! And also assisted with my theory test, what more could you ask for? Overall, it's clear to say James is very dedicated and loves teaching new drivers, I couldn't recommend James anymore for any first time drivers or even experienced drivers! Thanks again!, Ellis

Already failed your driving test?

If you are looking to start driving lessons in Milton Keynes and it has been a year or longer since you took the driving test unsuccessfully,  then I am happy to answer your questions on the phone/text or e mail.  I am here to help you become a good driver and pass the driving test.

Having failed your driving test you will be upset or annoyed at:

1 Annoyed at yourself for not driving to your normal standard of driving.
2 Upset that something happened on your driving test that caught you off guard.
3 That you were not fully prepared for the driving test.

The 3 above points covers a lot. So lets deal with one at a time.

1 Annoyed at yourself for not driving to your normal standard of driving.
Two things here.
A. Is your driving to the test standard ( if we assume you are having driving lessons with a qualified instructor), then nerves has proberley affected you on the driving test. Ask your driving instructor to give you some mock driving tests. This will help you to cope with the pressure and the routine of the driving test.
B. You think you are at test standard( but your family member has been teaching you). Then the answer here is that you will proberley need a driving instructor to assess your driving to give you some pointers on what to improve.

2 Upset that something happened on your driving test that caught you off guard.
If you failed the driving test for one mistake and that was caused by something happening out of the ordinary. Then ask yourself if the same thing happened how would you deal with it. The answer is proberley observations and anticipation on approach. Work on these areas.

3 That you were not fully prepared for your driving test.
If you are looking at your driving test report form(green Form) and it reads something like 30 minors and 6 serious 4 dangerous etc. If we assume nerves has not played a major part then you were proberley not ready at that time for your driving test. You will need to work on the faults that have cropped up on your driving test with either your driving instructor or your family member. there is no point going straight back in for your test if you haven't address the faults or they will cause you to fail again.

If you feel you need some more answers then just ask James at Travis School of Motoring  a question, he is happy to help.
