Many people feel that hourly lessons go on and on forever. One of the many advantages of an intensive course that you learn to drive over a short period of time.
We recommend that courses are one to one so that you can learn at your own pace. Your instructor will monitor your ability on a continuous basis and discuss your progress with you regularly.
Take advantage of our introductory lesson offer. This will give you and your instructor the chance to get to know each other. Your instructor will then be able to assess your driving and give you sound advice on the best course of action for you.
Typically courses can last from one to five days with morning and afternoon sessions each lasting two or three hours with occasional breaks and seperated by a lunch break of at least an hour.
You or your instructor should arrange your driving test a few days after completion of your course. Experience shows that you will perform better on test if you are well rested and fresh on the day. Consider leaving enough time to cancel the test without loss of the test fee if necessary. Just knowing that you have the option will help prevent molehills turning into mountains during your course and make the whole experience much more enjoyable.
Learning with a local driving instructor is preferable to a residential intensive driving course. Without the added cost of travel and accomodation it will be cheaper too. Residential driving courses almost invariably involve taking the practical driving test on the last day of the course. Far better to take the test in a relaxed frame of mind after a few day's break from constant driving and a good night's sleep in your own bed.
A practical test cannot be booked until you have passed your Theory test therefore it is recommended, though not essential, that you pass the Theory test before commencing an intensive course. Your instructor will be glad to advise when you arrange your introductory lessons.
