To find out about specific driving instructors, you can contact driving instruction schools in your area and inquire about how their instructor selection process works. Depending on the driver training school you select, you may or may not be able to choose your driving instructor.
Some driving school websites provide information about individual driving instructors. Silver State Driving Academy in Nevada, for example, displays a photo of each instructor along with a short biography. Some pages may include one or more student testimonials as well. Students can select the instructor using the tool provided in the "Book Driving Lessons Now" section.
You can often get an idea of the type of instruction the school gives its students by visiting the FAQ page. Driving instructors must deal with all types of students at various levels of experience. You can ask the driving school how its instructors deal with students who are nervous or fearful about driving. If you have a medical condition that makes driving more challenging, this should be mentioned. Driving school instructors should demonstrate patience and help students gain confidence behind the wheel.
