Driving with both a driving school and parents or friends car will give you good practice but first you must find a good driving school.
How will you choose a good driving school in Mauritius?
Many will say, learning first to drive within your vicinity is best. You may choose to do this too if learning with parents or friends. If you are going to learn with a driving school only, it does not matter where you start to learn. I personally suggest starting directly in Port Louis as the driving test is held there.
Many people find hunting for the right driving school very tough which is true; everyone will recommend you who they have learned with. But will that same instructor be good for you? Best is to phone for an appointment and ask every question you have so that you feel at ease in his / her company. If you do not get along well with the instructor on the first lesson, it is best to search for another one since it will become harder later to swap instructor when your driver test is approaching.
All driving school cars in Mauritius has dual controls which is necessary for learner drivers in case the learner driver get in a situation of panic. This is one of the reason why if is not always recommended to start driving in the family car. You also need to check if the driving school has the right insurance.
There will be many times where you will be in doubt whether you are doing the right moves or not. It is best to ask your instructor about everything, and remember one thing you will not sound stupid. You better clear your doubts than drive carelessly. I hesitated a lot to ask questions with the first driving instructor I went with, that left me with some bad driving skills. But surely I am catching up with my new driving instructor who is very patient and friendly.
Rubeina is a learner driver who will pass her test later this month. She is confident that she will get her driving licese after choosing R96 Driving school and having learned with one of the best driving instructor in Mauritius.
