Driving Lessons in Stoke-on-Trent

Looking for driving lessonsStoke-on-Trent, a city in Staffordshire (often shortened to Staffs).  It is sometimes called “the Potteries”.  Mike Dawson, founder of Tristar Driving School, is based here and thinks that it is a fantastic place to teach pupils how to drive.  With it’s copious amount of housing estates and industrial estates it provides an ideal setting for the safe practice of reverse manoeuvres and the perfection of the essential skills that a young ...

Young Drivers’ Insurance Doesn’t have to be Expensive

Posted by:

Young Drivers’ Insurance Doesn’t have to be Expensive.  Passing the Driving Test must surely be one of the great high spots in a person’s life experience but often, there follows a huge anti-climax when it comes to buying that first car and getting it on the road.

The initial purchase cost is, in itself, a major headache but Insurance fees can be crippling for the new teenage driver.

 

Not long ago, A pupil, who was near to test and (in my view) ...

Costa Del Packet!!

Posted by:

Costa Del Packet. We received some good feedback for our last Blog, featuring Joe Blogger, who has since returned from holiday and dashed off his latest contribution.

Please remember that his views do not, in any way reflect the views held by Tristar Driving and his contributions are his own opinions, based on his daily observations of life and his experiences within the driving instructor profession.

 

Well, after ten days on the Costa–bloody-fortune, it’s great to be back here in England – ...

MEET “JOE BLOGGER”

Posted by:

MEET “JOE BLOGGER” – A new member of our team from 1st July is an old ADI mate of mine who has recently taken retirement.

He was never one to let an opportunity slip by – an opportunity to express his views, that is and often he would regale the ADIs in the test centre waiting room with his comic observations and forthright comments.

He tells me he is really a shy retiring type (well retired anyway) and asked if I would ...

“INTENSIVE” doesn’t have to mean “Stressful”

Posted by:

Now don’t get me wrong – I love summer just as much as the next man – unless the next man happens to be an Eskimo.

However, why do so many of our young people see summertime as the definitive time to learn how to drive?

Over my many years in the Instructing profession, I have noticed an upswing in driving lesson enquiries, from around early May.

During our initial ...

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR MOTORWAY DRIVING

Posted by:

“Thank you so much – I couldn’t have done it without you!”

“I’ll definitely be in touch about a motorway lesson.”

 

I must have heard these two comments hundreds of times during my Instructing career – especially the first comment.

Unfortunately, no matter how well intentioned the second comment may be, very few follow up with a telephone call or text, to discuss motorway lessons.

 

I do two sessions- each of two hours duration, involving the ...

I’ve Just Passed My Driving Test!

Posted by:

We all remember that feeling of passing our driving test after all of that hard work.  I actually remember shouting out “I’ve just passed my driving test” and I remember venturing out in my second-hand car for the very first time…on my own.  The feeling was excitement, pure and simple.  The first thing I did was drive to my friend’s house and we drove around for a while…cruised I believe the term is.  Those were good times.  Was the hard ...

OUR VERY POPULAR “OPTION B” FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY

INSTRUCTORS AND TRAINEES – AN OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE MISSED

 

Many years ago, after subscribing to a monthly franchise with a large national Driving School, I decided (like many before me) that it was time to go it alone.

I found one of those advertised DIY websites, duly completed the necessary details and then …………………………..nothing!

I found that by subscribing further, I could avail myself of a mild form of SEO but was assured that, in order ...
