Well it’s that time of year again...the time to start planning on what to get for your friends and family and loved ones. The time to start wading through the waves of people that pour into the shops at this time of year like an endless currant of headless chickens moving from shop to shop looking for ‘that’ perfect gift that will pass you for another year until the ritual repeats itself next year. Crying children, angry parents, arguing couples and the occasional chilled out person taking it all in their stride.
There is a simple solution to all this of course...and no, it doesn’t involve you shutting yourself away until it’s all over. If you know of someone who doesn’t drive, or someone who is seriously bad at it! You could simply buy them driving lessons in Belfast from the Advanced School of Motoring. Buying driving lessons is a much more thoughtful gift for someone than some random gift from a shop as this will be something that will have an impact on the rest of their life. This is something that you can’t put a price on as they will always remember you for it.
One of the main barriers for people learning to drive is the cost of learning, especially for the likes of students. Another barrier ...well more of a mindset really is that a car is something that they can’t afford but when they have the money for a car they’ll take the lessons then. This is a very negative mentality as how many of us have complained not having the money for a holiday, yet as soon as it’s booked it becomes real and you start saving money you would have otherwise spent. Driving lessons are no different because having the driving license under your belt is the perfect incentive to start saving for your first car.
