Who are the Broughton School of Motoring?

If you're looking for driving lessons in Scunthorpe (or Brigg) you've come to the right place!

The Broughton School of Motoring is me - Steve Watson - and I've been helping people like you become safe, confident drivers since 2011.

In that time hundreds of young (and not so young!) learner drivers have enjoyed their driving lessons with me and I'm pleased to say most of them passed their theory and driving tests first time.

Here's some photos of them with their pass certificates. You might know someone who passed their test with me. You can find out what they thought of their driving lessons on this website, on Facebook or on Google.

How to choose a driving instructor

Driving lesson reviewChoosing a driving instructor needs care. You're going to be sat next to him or her for thirty or forty hours so you need someone you can get along with.

Your driving instructor should be someone who is going to be patient with you and someone who is going to plan your lessons around what YOU need, not what they think you need. A sense of humour is good, too!

The best way to find your ideal driving instructor is by asking family or friends to recommend one. If you can't do that, you could ask Google to find you some reviews.

How we teach people to drive

You might be expecting to sit beside a driving instructor who takes full control of your learning. An instructor who tells you exactly what to do and why you need to do it. An instructor who decides on what you’re going to learn and how long you’re going to spend learning it. An instructor who teaches you using the methods they prefer to use.

You may well pass a driving test with that approach, but there is a down side to learning in this way - you may not feel totally equipped or prepared to drive on the roads by yourself once you pass. You may ‘forget’ what to do in certain situations or you may come up to situations you have never encountered on your lesson.

Instead, I'll encourage you to take control of your learning. I'll be there to provide structure to your lessons of course, but I'll help you to think about what you’d like to learn and maybe to even find out how long you would like to spend learning that skill or topic before moving on to something else.

You’ll be asked to think about situations that have developed on your lessons; to reflect upon and learn from situations, opportunities and mistakes (YES - mistakes are essential part of learning!). I'll help you learn using methods which work well for you this might include the use of visual aids, videos, demonstrations, or just more on-road practice.

I'll help you problem-solve for yourself so you're ready for when you’ve passed your test and are out on the road on your own.

Of course, if you prefer the traditional instructor-led way of being taught, then that’s fine. Just let me know. They’re your lessons and youre the customer!

Right, let's get you on the road!
