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.

The entire project is going to be written in PHP and will communicate with a database using SQL commands. The web app will be hosted on an apache web server. JavaScript and html/CSS will be used to provide a user friendly experience.
