My project idea is to easily connect learner drivers with driving instructors via a web application.
Currently if a learner is looking to book a driving instructor they must monotonously search through directories in their area. Alternatively a lot of bookings come through word of mouth which is not really sustainable. There are some companies such as Irish School of Motoring (ISM) who can schedule appointments via a website. This does not however facilitate private instructors who may not have the expertise or funding to develop a site themselves.
The application will have instructor profiles, contact details, locations, merits and qualifications of the driving instructors which the user can browse when looking for a lesson. The user can also book a test with an instructor, leave a review, comment and star-rate and take driving theory quizzes among other activities. The main goal of this app is to enable learner drivers to have a wider choice of driving instructors whose experience and ability are transparent.
My aim is to create a web app which is user friendly and provides all the necessary information required for both the driver and instructor. I will implement a payment method using a payment gateway so customers can actually pay for their lessons through the site. This will turn the web app into a more holistic product with end to end functionality. Providing a review process is what I feel will attract the most attention. Currently learner drivers have to take a risk of perhaps paying an instructor who is not at the level they require. The review features will hopefully eliminate this issue.
