Learning to drive, and passing a driving test, whilst not being able to hear, may be a daunting prospect, but it is more than possible.
But by understanding the condition and what the student can or cannot hear and working on how the student and instructor can communicate in car learning to drive and passing a driving test is more than possible.
I understand that each student’s range of hearing is different, so I work with them to assess how and what they can hear, if anything, and how we will communicate both in and out of the car. I tailor lessons plans specifically to their needs and together we work to get them to understand how to get the most from the car while not being able to hear the engine, and audible cues. I have worked with students with a wide range of hearing difficulties, including:
· Profoundly Deaf
· With a Cochlear Implant
· Deaf using hearing aids
Access Driving provides:
· Specialist driving lessons with an understanding of the student’s ability to hear, working with their condition to archive the student’s desired outcome;
· A safe non-pressurised environment to learn;
· A bespoke service capable of working with the students support network if desired;
· Expert guidance and tailored help in getting additional support from the DVSA during the theory and practical test if necessary.
