    Ive been having lessons with this instructor for about 2-3months now having 2hour lessons a week. Id like to cancel lessons with him as he is always shouting and swearing at me and its starting to be detrimental to my driving confidence as when he shouts it just makes me so much more nervous. Like last week we where doing a manouver(turn in the road) and he kept shouting at me saying "WHY THE **** CAN U NOT GET THIS" , " WHY CAN YOU NOT ******* FIND THE BITE". My parents had block booked a ton of lessons so i perservered through the shouting, the block booking runs out tommorow and I want to stop lessons with him but i really dont know what to say to him, any suggestions would help

    I told mine that I'd run out of money for the time being (wasn't quite a lie, I actually needed my money to book my flights), if you have no money he won't be interested I can guarantee!

    You are a lowly student and can't afford it anymore?
    Then if he sees you on lessons with someone else, you can just say they gave you a better deal.

    "Hi, you've been a **** and I'm changing driving instructors. Kthxbai."

    Nothing is keeping you with the guy so just tell him.

    If you would rather set your decision in concrete though, tell him a family friend is an instructor and is teaching for £5 a session

    I said this...
    I think I'm going to put off driving for awhile as I need to focus on my work and I'm going to start again once I've saved a load of money.
    OR, just ignore them.

    'WHY THE **** DO YOU THINK I WOULD WANT MORE LESSONS WITH YOU?' should do the trick.

    Just book it tomorrow after your next lesson, and either get your friend to ring him on your behalf or text him saying either **** off or i cant afford any more

    Easy, just don't book any more lessons.

    You don't have to give an answer when he asks why not, just say: "none for now thanks" and that'll be it.

    How exactly is this hard? :wtf:

    Amfg he sounds like a right *******.

    You could say a member of your family, or a family friend has offered you a good deal. Or that you want to learn to drive in a different type of car i.e. a ford focus because that is what your first car will be.

    But remember, once you have passed, run him over.
