Your driving lessons with Automatic Driving School

Alpha1 Drive School Progress Card

When you start driving lessons with Alpha1 Driving School, you will be given a personalised Progress Card

This card contains information about the items on the learning to drive sylibus, what you have learned, how well you have done, and what you will do next

In addition to sylibus items, other categories such as Fuelling, Satnav, accidents and Cruise Control are included

Completion of your progress card will ensure you know exactly where you have reached in your driver training at all times. The marking relates to that used on your driving test, which means you will be accustomed to being judged, which will go some way to negating your Practical Driving Test nerves

During your driving lessons with Alpha1 Driving School you will be given very clear and concise instruction using the MSPSL format. (This system of car control is included on your progress card and is abbreviated version of the Metropolitan Police Advanced Driving School system)

An example of this, for instance, for a roundabout straight ahead might be:

    M - Mirrors - check middle and left (BOB - to be explained in your driving lesson) mirrors;

    S - Signals NONE;

    P - Position, Left (normal drive position);

    S - Speed c. 10mph (where appropriate) and gear (2 in manual and clutch up);

    L - Looks - RALAR and enter when clear.
