Providing Driving Refresher Courses To Drivers Holding P Licenses

Although I provide driving lessons to students who possess L licenses, nevertheless, from time to time, I do agree to conduct “refresher” courses for students who possess “P” or provisional licenses too.

Some young drivers, who have just obtained their “P” license, discover that they are not competent enough to drive well. Parents, who are concerned with their children’s ability to drive safely, are therefore placed in a predicament upon discovering that their siblings are incapable to drive well. This is inspite of being given some 10 – 16 lessons or more by their previous instructor or instructors.

This was what led a Mdm. Yu, from Port Klang, who chanced upon reading my blog not too long ago. The above mother, a part time consultant with a logistics firm, contacted me about her son’s inability to drive safely and well.

It should be made known here that with 41 over years experience of giving driving instructions to students, I do not fancy giving “refresher” courses to students, except may be to my own students only.

Students who intent to do a refresher course take up a further 6 – 10 lessons under me to better themselves in the art of driving. I charge RM25 per hour for such classes. However, the charges for refresher courses can even go up to RM50 an hour.

A few years ago, I taught a housewife, from Kg. Delek, Telok Pulai, Klang, how to drive in her husband’s 2850 c.c. new Pajero. For readers’ information, teaching someone who is not competent in driving, especially in a big and powerful vehicle, such as a Pajero, is no mean task.

In fact, while tutoring the housewife mentioned above, my “boss”, Mat Saat, from Sekolah Memandu Mat Saat, saw me imparting refresher lessons in the Pajero, and hollered, “What on the earth are you doing?”, he inquired. “How in the world can you envisage doing such a thing?”, he said.

In reality, teaching refresher courses in a Pajero is indeed dangerous! For those who are unaware, the Pajero’s handbrake is located on the driver’s side, below the dashboard, next to the driver’s right knee. As such, an instructor, infact has no opportunity at all to use the handbrake to assist her when emergency situations arise.

It is hoped that other instructors who are reading this article would not contemplate doing what I have done. It is infact, a “stupid” act!

In a half an hour interview over the phone recently with Star’s feature writer, Rashvinjeet S. Bedi who had wanted to write an article entitled “Parents’ misplaced love puts young lives at risk”, amongst other things, I was quoted to have reiterated that “many driving schools nowadays are more interested in making money, instead of imparting the correct knowledge of driving. They are just interested in churning out students, who in reality, can’t drive properly. New drivers are not getting enough practice hours on the road.”

Readers may wish to know, what does a “refresher” course entail? First of all, permit me to tell readers that a “refresher” course can be done in 2 ways:-

1. Using the driving instructor’s driving school or institute’s vehicle to brush up or improve the student’s apparent weakness and defences.

2. Using a student’s own automatic car to better his or her ability to drive well.

The second alternative appears to be a better choice as it will provide a student the chance to get used with his or her vehicle eventually. Whatever it is, the rates for refresher courses remain the same at RM25 an hour. The maxim followed by many driving schools appeared to be, “it’s not whose car or vehicle were using. It’s the time, which we impart upon teaching you how to drive well that counts.”

What do I out on a mission of conducting refresher classes do upon meeting with a student for the first time?

Ideally, check the driving license to see if it’s valid, meaning, it’s not expired. Find out a few things about the student. Things like which driving school taught him, how many hours of driving did he or she undergo and has the student ever been given the opportunity to drive in towns or otherwise.

These are important things a good instructor should know. All these will go a long way to assist the instructor in preparing the student for a refresher lesson.

My observation upon “P” holders show that, amongst some of the major weaknesses of “P” drivers are:-

1. Incapable of stepping on the accelerator correctly, thereby causing the vehicle to stall.

2. Inability to take a corner correctly, thereby causes the possibility of a near collision.

3. Not ensuring that a vehicle is in “free” gear or otherwise before switching on the engine.

4. Unable to evaluate which correct gear a vehicle has to be in.

5. Many students tend to turn their heads to the rear when asked to ensure if there are vehicles approaching from the rear. They should infact use the side mirror instead.

6. Many “P” drivers are found to change gears incorrectly. They tend to enter gear 4 instead of the required gear 2, causing the vehicle to vibrate violently.

7. A tendency to leave up the clutch too fast thereby causing the vehicle to jerk abruptly. This pertains especially to gear 2 and 3 specifically.

8. Finally, it has been observed too that many “P” drivers fail to ensure that the coast is clear before they drive off.

The above are some of the weakness which many “P” drivers suffer from. During the “refresher” courses, a good instructor should emphasize upon the 7 or 8 weaknesses I have mentioned above. It is only through a determined effort, which will eventually improve a “P” driver’s ability to drive well.

    Hi..I chanced on your blog while google-ing for tips on overcoming my fear of driving. I am now 25 years old and am severely “debilitated” by my inability to drive. I actually got my driving license on my first attempt at the age of 18 and was driving a few months after that. I found that the stress and anxiety being on the road was too overwhelming and I just abruptly stopped. Then I just gave in to my fear of driving and have not driven since then. After all these years of feeding into this fear, I am at a point that I cannot imagine ever driving again.

    My main fear is that when I get into a car, it feels like the car is so big that it spills onto the other lanes. I also feel like I will hit the side of the car on something if I make a turn and I always feel like the car is too big for a designated parking space eventhough I know that it will fit. I also always worry of not reacting appropriately in sudden events like breaking when a car suddenly stops in front of me rather than just avoiding it etc..

    I have driven 2-3 times in these past few years but only when the road is empty and I know there is a empty parking lot with many spaces. But still cannot imagine driving in heavy traffic; too bad I live and work in KL.

    To make matters worse..I am a medical doctor and its hard for me to move around as I rely alot on others and have to take cabs wherever I go. Also my working schedule is packed that I rarely have time to initiate the learning process to drive again. And when I do have the time my fear gets the best of me and I just go…okay, maybe not today. Plus its embarassing to admit to ppl that I can’t drive…because its entirely due to my lack of will power.

    I also have very poor support group as everyone around me drives and they totally do not understand why I cant. And I have tried to get some of my friends and family to help me but I find that most do not have the patience for my stupid reactions on the road. But I dont blame them cause I give up too easily too.

    I was just wondering whether you have encountered such a weird story before and if you could advice me on this seeing that you have alot of experience in this field. Hope I am not intruding as I found your email address on a post that was for something else and I am emailing you for some other weird reason. Looking forward for ur advice. Thanks!

      Psychologically, you have lost your confidence to drive. Try getting a good instructor to provide you further refresher lessons to build up your confidence slowly. Ideally, get a small automatic vehicle to start off. Your refresher course should begin in housing estates initially. Then, move on to less congested roads. later on, when you have become more confident, the instructor should then move on to more congested roads.

    Hello Cikgu Yap,

    I get my license L recently, and having the 8 hours practice.

    But I am going to University, next month. Which means I can’t complete the JPJ test in time. :(

    Yet, I heard people said once you get the license L, it will survive for 2 years, which means I have to finish the progress (of 8 hours practice to JPJ test) within TWO years. Is this true?

    Does it really last for 2 years? And if no, what can I do? Do I have to go through the progress (from the Undang-Undang test) all over again?

    Thanks at advance! :)

    • Cikgu Yap December 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm - Reply

      Undang-undang L license lasts 2 years. Try finishing your practical test by then.

    Hi Cikgu Yap, I have not been driving since I got my license 5 years ago. I have lost confidence in driving and my skills are really bad. Wanted to go for refreshing course, do you think using own car is better (planning to buy an auto car) or using institute car is better?

    Thanks for your advice in advance!!

      You have to get a good driving instructor to help you. if you’re in Klang town area, we might be able to assist you.

        I’m staying in PJ area. Got the price from one of the driving center… RM430 for 10-hours refresher couse. This is very expensive… Which part of Klang were you mentioning? Any good instructor that I can contact to?

        • Cikgu Yap February 27, 2012 at 9:43 pm - Reply

          The price asked, I feel is reasonable. Don’t forget, instructing one to drive is a dangerous task.

    I have not been driving for the past 6 years. Though I don’t own a car yet, but I really want to pick up the skill again. I need a refresher course from a super patient instructor because I am rather timid behind the wheel. Any recommendations, Cikgu Yap? Preferably somewhere near Pantai Hillpark or UM area. Thanks.

    Hi…I had only a year experience in driving about 20 years ago. And I really need to pick up the refresher course recently because I need to move to Selayang soon and I work in KL.

    But I still have a fear & anxiety to drive like Rowina. Last year I have picked up the refresher course (RM100 for three hours), and the instructor said I was good enough to drive, in fact I still don’t believe in me. He said if I still lack of confidence to drive after I have an auto car, I can contact him again to catch up some classes again but using my car.

    Honestly, I just covered up my fear during that three hours, after that I felt sick for a week, and my fear in driving is still with me, I am always feeling to hit the front car or I forgot to brake or something.

    Do you have any good and super patient instructor to introduce for me, I am really sincerely wanted to overcome my fear, then only to consider to buy a new car to drive in the future.

    Hi Cikgu Yap, I am trying to contact you through email, but still no reply.

    Just to inform you that Mr. Wong is not available to teach on week ends, and he seems no confidence to teach student without young age, because when I replied him that I have my driving licence more than 20 years, but only a year of driving experience. Then he asked me how old I am?

    Do you have any patient instructor to teach 40+ years old student?

    Thank You.

    • Cikgu Yap July 14, 2012 at 9:25 am - Reply

      Not all enquiries to us regarding refresher courses are contacted. The terms and conditions of the above course should first of all be agreeable to both parties, namely the instructor and the student itself. Hopefully all potential students who write in to enquire should always bear this important fact in mind.

      Nevertheless, the question of not wanting to tutor a student of any age level does not arise at all. Allow me to repeat, we are professionals, so to say. We tutor everyone, irregardless of age. But terms and conditions apply.

  9. David July 16, 2012 at 1:49 am - Reply

    Yes, Thanks Cikgu Yap.

    I have finally called Mr. Wong directly, I guess he is a very passionate teacher. He is required student to use their own car, he will guide student especially for those are suffering mental issue in driving, how to recognise their fear barriers, and he will charge RM600 per 10 hours in Kuala Lumpur area because he is located in Klang, so PJ area is cheaper then etc.

    I am almost disqualified for the above terms and conditions because I am not dare to buy a new car yet because I am not sure whether I can encounter my fears and it is very expensive for me. NVM I am appreciating your unconditional assistance.

    And I bought your book-Driving Made Easy from Kinokuniya, K.L It is unique and not expensive.

    Thank You.

      Indeed wonderful to note that you now know the difficulties which we face. Mr. Wong and myself look eagerly to your joining us for your fresher course one fine day. Your support for our book is most appreciated.

    Hi Cikgu Yap, I had not been driving for about 10 year now and after I got my licensee I haven’t drive until now because I got anxiety and nervous take over me when I wanted to drive, that has been holding me back for so long, but now I thought is really my time to pick up the skill again. I need a refresher course from a super patient instructor because my nerve take over me.

    I have my refresher course today after 5 years i didnt drive after pass the driving test. The instructor charge me RM38 per hour. Is it reasonable? He come directly from shah alam to my house to subang at 2.05pm but drive to big area the time is 2.30pm and teach me driving. After finish teaching back my home at 3.35pm and he say he already teach me for 2 hours. I argued with him say he is not teach me fully 2 hours. He say it start counting the time from my house. I feel like kena tipu by him.

    Dear Cikgu Yap,

    I met in an accident at my 2nd attempt to drive post receiving my licence 2 yrs ago (no one was hurt but the car had some major repairs). Ever since then I never drove as I had the fear I may hurt people or myself. I didn’t have confidence to drive. I’m ready now to overcome that fear and hence why i’m reaching out to you for a refresher course. I live in Taman Sri Sentosa, Klang. Would you be able to recommend an instructor for me?

    • Cikgu Yap July 11, 2013 at 11:17 am - Reply

      Hi Elaine, firstly, I would like to commend you for your decision to overcome your fear of driving. Since our instructors are mainly based in Klang, refresher course in Taman Sri Sentosa shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll contact you through your email for more information.

    I have not drive since I got my license more than 20 years ago but I keep renewing my license. I wish to buy a small car soon and would want to go for lesson. Should I start all over again from the beginning or should I just take up refreshing course. My license is alive but have not drive a car in my life ever since after my driving exam. I live in KL city centre. What is your advise Cikgu Yap.

    Thank you

    Hi Cikgu Yap,

    I have a valid driving license but have not driven in about 12 years since I got this license as my jobs have mostly been accessible to public transport…I have been trying to get relatives and husband to teach me how to drive every once in a while but is is not ideal because they are not patient enough as I am not very confident of what I’m doing and feel very stressed by them and also fear going on the road.

    I would like to find an instructor who can do at least 8 – 10 hours refresher course with me for auto car, more if needed as I want to be able to drive confidently. I live in the Kelana Jaya area and only have the free time on weekends. And I don’t own a car at the moment, my husband has an Avanza but I feel that it is too big to learn in…Hope that you can advise me any good instructors you have…thanks.

    Hi,

    I’ve a licence but I had an abusive instructor when I was 17+ who would abuse me verbally and he would use a tennis racquet and hit my knuckles with it when I couldn’t push the gears right. I dreaded seeing him everyday because he would send me into a panic mode. I managed to switch instructors but this one was equally as bad. He would abuse me verbally when I didn’t get things right and he didn’t like me asking any questions. I did earn my licence eventually but there was no joy to it. Everything was so formula based. Everything was so authoritative. Over the years, I did drive but very minimally to none at all now because I lack skills and I just have no one to turn. Sure, most people say drive away but that is like placing a blind man onto the road without a stick. I don’t want to end up killing anyone in the process. Besides, you can’t solve a math equation without basic knowledge. I tried a refresher course before and though he was initially understanding, he later became too money minded and insulting. I need your recommendation of an instructor who is non of the above. Preferrably someone who speaks English but most importantly, someone who isn’t abusive, who is a caring and patient individual. I get it, everyone wants to make a living but I’m asking for a recommendation of a genuine person who is there to assist another human being and not out there to rip someone off their money. I live in Damansara Utama. Thank you.

    Hey Cikgu Yap! I had my QTI last week & the QTI tester asked me to go on the road but I didn’t even go on the road before. Therefore, he teached me when to change gear and all. But at last, I passed my QTI. And therefore, I’m having my JPJ on next Thursday. I’m so nervous that the engine will die off at the parking area. So now when I’m having driving lessons, somehow I step a little of pedal and do reserve :( is it okay? Do the JPJ tester will notice if I use pedal for a little bit during the parking part? I’M REALLY SCARED OMG. CAN YOU HELP ME, CIKGU YAP? ):

    Dear Mr. Yap, I would like to take up refresher course using own car. I believe that you don’t have any female instructors. I do not mind taught by male instructor but kindly recommend somebody very patient as i am already having some kind of phobia to drive. Would appreciate if you could email me the pricing and details. I am only available during weekends.

    Hi Mr Yap,

    I got my driving license on first attempt 10 years ago but ever since then I have not driven much except for a few occasions over the last 10 years. I bought a car recently but I feel quite a bit of stress when I get behind the wheel. I drove once in KL and I did not do so well and felt anxiety when I had to merge or change lanes when there are so many cars. I am not so good with parking either. I need a refresher course to get my confidence back. I stay in Jalan Ipoh. Would you be able to provide me this refresher course or if not, can you recommend someone who would be able to do it? I need this urgently.

    Thanks so much.

    I have a valid driving license and have not drive for the past 5 years when I was overseas studying.

    I am in need of a refresher course. I already have a valid driving license 9 years ago but did not have enough practice after obtaining the license due to fractured leg. I then studied and worked overseas for over 7 years. I have now migrated back to Malaysia and in desperate need to be able to drive confidently again. I have been practicing maybe about three or four times when I come back to Malaysia for holiday the last 7 years.

    I will be starting work again and will appreciate if I can get a refresher course soon.

    Hi Cikgu Yap,

    I need a driving refresher course. A little bit about my background here. I’ve not been driving ever since I passed the driving test 4 years ago as back then, I can’t afford to buy a car but when I can afford it, I started to freak out and due to my low will-power and confidence, I’ve totally gave up and decided not to buy a car until after I completed the refresher course – in which I kept procrastinating… to the point where I really need this for work purpose. I hope you will be able to help me on this to regain my confidence. Below are my details and requirements for the course:

    1. I need to learn driving an Auto car (I decided not to touch manual anymore and will buy an auto-car instead as I am scared)
    2. I have CDL although I can’t drive. I just keep renewing my license, hoping that one day I will muster up my courage
    2. I’m currently staying/ renting a room at Damansara Kim, PJ, near Damansara Uptown
    3. Preferably English or Chinese-speaking instructor
    4. Preferably day-time on Weekends only and sometime at night during Weekdays once I’m more competent on the road, just to test my driving ability at night as well.

    Usually how many times of refresher course did people take to be truly competent on the road? (like good side parking skill, stopping at a slope and driving the car forward like those in basement parking base shopping malls, going through massive jams and narrow roads in busy areas like in Uptown or Bukit Bintang, etc..)

    Sorry for the long message but I just want to let you understand my situation better before recommending suitable instructor with experience teaching a slow learner like me.

    Thank you and I hope to receive your email on the details soon. :)

    After being overseas for so long I have returned to Malaysia and because I did not renew my license, I am told to do ujian practical 2 and 3.

    I am now pregnant and will have my baby in December. I need to be able to drive for my baby. I hope to gain competence before December.

    Please recommend me a very good instructor to instill confidence. I live in Bangsar South.

    Hi Cikgu Yap.

    Your Blog is like a lifesaver to me. I took my driving license about 3 years ago, passed in the first sitting and then never drove again. I recently renewed my license to 5 years because I finally have a car. It is a Kia Spectra automatic. I really need to have some refresher courses for me to gain confidence in driving car. I seem to have trouble in gauging the turning radius of the car as my apartment area has many turns and bends towards the parking area especially. Please help me. Thank you.

    Hi Cikgu Yap,

    I am interested in this refresher course, since it has been quite long since the last time I drive. Please let me know the availability and best pricing.

    I am planning to buy an Axia, but would only be able to do so once my parents are convinced with my driving skill. I already have a license back from Indonesia + international driving license.

    My requirement would be:
    – English speaker, patient, and able to give me confidence in my driving ability. I used to be yelled at during driving, and it make me hate driving with a passion.
    – Subang Area, available during weekend (I stay in Cyberjaya during weekday, USJ during weekend)
    – Auto car, since I am planning to buy Auto car.
    – I used to be able to handle congested road and simple parking (head first to go inside the lot) pretty well. But it has been long since I last driven, so most likely my skills had become rusty.
    – How to park in all kind of situation.
    – I cannot handle fast speed.

    I call several driving school , all suggest me the 10 hour package and it is very expensive!

    Thank you in forward.

    • Cikgu Yap May 27, 2015 at 7:07 pm - Reply

      Usually, a driving instructor will provide refresher lesson for minimum 10 hours package. Anything less than that, it is not worth their time.

      Even if they do provide short refresher lesson, the cost would be astronomical.

    Hi,
    I passed I France my exam regarding the driving rules, signs etc, and I took 5 hours of driving lessons. But it was 5 months ago and I forgot most of the driving lessons. Would it be possible to get a few refreshing hours before I go back to France even though I don’t have my driving licence yet? In France it’s very expensive and I can’t afford paying to many lessons.. I am going back in 2 weeks and I would like to have around 10 hours driving lessons.
    Thank you

    Dear Cikgu Yap,

    Do you have any instructor who can teach me to drive again? I have a valid driver’s license & like many people, I have not driven since obtaining it some 8 yrs ago. I did try to drive a manual recently but I couldn’t get my feet to sync with shifting the gear. Does your instructor have an auto car to teach students like me? Gosh…I hope so. Is it expensive for a refresher course? I hope not. I’ve lost my job & it’s really depressing to not know how to drive & to know that I have to fork out more money to learn again. Sigh..

    Dear Cikgu Yap,

    You have a great website and account of your experiences as a driving instructor. I am interested in a refresher course with a small automatic car. Does your school provide courses with automatic cars? I am 34 years old, have a valid license but have not driven for 12 years. This is because I didn’t really practice enough to gain confidence. Due to this lack of confidence, I have always been nervous behind the wheel. I have poor sense of space and need quite a lot of practice. I probably need to re-learn how to control the car. As I would like to be able to accept job opportunities which could possibly be further than just around my area (Taman Segar), I would like to re-equip myself with driving once more, preferably with an instructor who is patient and able to converse in English.

    Evening,

    We would like a recommendation of a few driving instructors in the damansara area for a refresher for our daughter. She has tried to find one but to no avail. My daughter has been very depressed over this and we would like your help to please recommend a kind soul who speaks english to guide her. She knows the areas she needs improvement in but is defeated that she can’t find anyone to help her. It gets harder for her as depending on public transportation is tough, furthermore she can’t consider workplaces that are too far out. We feel helpless as we only want her to be happy. If we as a family were better teachers, we would guide her but we aren’t good in guiding our daughter the way it should be. Please help our daughter. Thank you.

    Kind regards,
    Bashira

    I got my driving license 5 years ago but my last drive was like 3 years ago. The total number of times I drove were so less that I can count it with my 10 fingers. During my last drive, I was still unable to estimate how much I have to accelerate, from what distance I have to break, how do I turn my car and so on. Now, I wish to refresh my driving skill and get more familiar with driving. I wish to do it in PJ area with the instructor’s car. Can I know how much is it per hour? thanks.

  152. Vijay July 5, 2016 at 9:47 am - Reply

    Hi Sir, I have obtained my P license but I required additional training to ensure safe driving as I have the following weakness:
    1. Incapable of stepping on the accelerator correctly when moving out of a corner or U-turn.

    2. Inability to take a U-turn correctly, thereby causes the possibility of a near collision.

    3. Real life parking.

    Please assist. Thank you
