Learn to Drive at Smart Driving School

How to get a Student Driver Permit from LTO

----------------------------------------------------

Before my son's graduation in high school, I promised that I will enroll him in a driving school.  The reason I had in mind  was because he wanted to get a course on BS Aircraft Maintenance Technology.  I just thought that it would be better for him to have an experience and proper training on how machines work and learning to drive was a good start.  I started hunting for the best driving school around town.  He was still at minority age thus I got to select a driving school that will make my son safe while learning how to drive.  I asked suggestions from friends and researched on the net and read blogs about it.  I sent email to different driving schools to send me quotations.  The one that got my attention was the Smart Driving School.  They sent me their brochures and suggested the nearest branch to our residence.  You can check the list below for the nearest branch to you with corresponding contact details.  My husband accompanied my son to their office to enroll for the beginner's course and also for him to check if it was a good choice.  I received no complaints from my two gentlemen so we proceeded with the plan.  After enrollment, the next thing we needed to secure was the student driver's permit.  You can read my post about getting a student driver's permit here.


The enrollment fee was quite affordable than in other driving schools.  Included in the package were free licensing assistance, driving seminar,student assessment and defensive driving orientation.

Based on my son's assessment, the instructor assigned to him was quite good as he knows how to motivate him to learn and his teaching style made him confident that he can drive a motor vehicle.  It was the first time he got hold of the steering wheel but he managed to drive along the main road even on his first day.  After the five-day course, he was able to drive along highways and park the car perfectly.  Not bad for a five-hour course.  I intend to continue his lesson until the 15th hour but school days came and he couldn't find time to include it in his schedule.  The good thing was, he was able to learn on how to operate a motor vehicle and maybe apply some of the knowledge he gained from that training.  Also, I found out that he really has the courage to pursue things that he liked doing so I feel safe that he will not fail in his chosen career.  As his parents, we will always support him so he may be able to attain his goal.

  1. Another good reason to enroll in a driving school is to have an honest assessment of your driving skills from the professionals. They can identify the areas on which you need to improve on to eradicate your tendency for bad driving.
