Choosing a high-quality driving school is vital. Learning to drive can be an expensive business so it makes sense to choose your driving school carefully. Before choosing your driving school you should be acquainted with certain things. Only approved driving instructors can give instruction for payment and it is illegal for anyone else to charge you for training. So make sure the driving school that you are about to select is approved.
Check the driving school pass rate for learners who are sitting on the practical exam for the first time. Ask is it possible for you to have a reduced price for the initial lesson to see how you get on with your trainer? You also should check for how long the driving school been teaching the learners and how much they charge you for the entire course. Check for the duration of the course and what percentage of the time is spent on real driving and classroom learning. Make sure that driving time is at least equal to the time spent on other aspects of the syllabus. Check the procedures on canceling a pre-planned lesson. If you are planning to drive only the automatic gear cars, will the instructor provide what you want? Check the car model and its condition that the driving school uses for training. Check the safety features such as airbags and other side-impact protection. It’s better if you could have a look at the car before you enroll for the course. Check the driver’s seat and steering column of the tuition vehicle to be adjusted to suit your height and build. This is particularly important if you are either very tall or very short. Ask for software or study aids to help prepare you for the theory test. Check whether the instructor picks you up and drop you off at your home address or the location that is convenient for you. Ask whether the instructor smokes inside the tuition vehicle, it is important if you are a non-smoker. Speak to your instructor and see him talk to you a clear and understandable way.
Salisbury is fast becoming the main tourist destination once again after suffering a decline in tourists visiting the city after the infamous chemical attack. However, my time in Salisbury shown that locals and even tourists had forgotten about this incident and it was business an usual.
Salisbury is steeped with history and in it lies somewhere between myth and fact. Legends mingle with historic chronicles to form a feast for the imagination. There’s no way to know exactly how long ago humans first settled in Salisbury. There is some evidence that the hill fort at Old Sarum has been occupied since at least 8,000 BCE. Salisbury has been a part of the myths and legends of the Iron Age, Roman occupation, the history of King Arthur and his knights, and the brutal invasions of the Saxons.
Old Sarum – The settlement at Old Sarum is likely connected to the stone monoliths of Stonehenge and Avebury. The hill stands at the intersection of two ancient trading paths. The Romans were definitely not the first to occupy Old Sarum. When the Romans took over, the fort was already occupied by a tribe of exiled Gauls called Atrebates. Old Sarum was next captured by the Saxons.
In 1070 William the Conqueror decided that Old Sarum was strategically valuable. He built a motte-and-bailey castle right in the middle of the hillfort. Can you imagine what they must have found in 1070? Digging the foundations on top of eight-thousand years of history probably turned up some amazing artifacts. Historians think that the original castle was built of timber. The fortified stone structure doesn’t appear until sometime in the thirteenth century. Sadly, little remains of this castle today other than exposed foundations. For 150 years Old Sarum was an important center of both secular and religious government.
