Advantages Of An Intensive Driving Course

An Intensive Driving Course can be the solution to getting through your driving test quickly, and avoiding some of the difficulties that hourly driving lessons can have.

Intensive Driving Courses are especially useful to people with very little spare time in their normal schedule to fit in driving lessons.

Take a week or two off work, do an Intensive Driving Course, and take your Driving Test.

An Intensive Driving Course is not an instant solution, it will still take a few weeks, however, learning to drive by having one lesson per week is likely to take several months.

An Intensive Driving Course can condense learning to drive into a week or two of driving tuition, and the whole process from planning to having a full driving licence taking only a few weeks.

You take your driving test at a time when you have been immersed in driving, and it has been the main focus for the last few days

You can fit all of your learning into just a week or two

You could have your full driving licence in just a few weeks time

Intensive Driving Course Benefits Compared to Hourly Driving Lessons

Many people learn to drive by having a 1 hour Driving Lesson once a week.

The disadvantages of hourly driving lessons are:

Before we arrange your Intensive Driving Course we will first assess your driving, both to ascertain your current driving ability, and also to assess how quickly you learn.

Based on this assessment we will advise you of the length of Intensive Driving Course you will need.

We will then plan your Intensive Driving Course with you, and book your driving test appointment to coincide with your Intensive Driving Course.

Your Intensive Driving Course will be of sufficient length that you will have time to properly prepare for your driving test, and feel confident not only when you take the driving test, but also feel confident to drive on your own after your driving test.

How Soon Can I Pass My Driving Test?

Our Intensive Driving Courses range from 3 days to 10 days, depending on your driving ability.

How soon you can pass your driving test is going to depend on:

The sooner we can arrange your driving assessment, the sooner we can plan and arrange your intensive driving course.

Once we have completed your driving assessment we can typically get a driving test arranged within about 6 weeks, with your Intensive Driving Course arranged to be completed on the day of your driving test.

If you have not yet passed the theory test, we can only give you an estimate of when your Intensive Driving Course and driving test will be.

As soon as you pass your theory test, we can then book dates for both the Intensive Driving Course, and your driving test, which would typically be within 6 weeks of you passing the theory test.

How Long Will My Intensive Driving Course Be?

Our Intensive Driving Courses range from 3 days to 10 days, depending on your ability.

Department for Transport (DfT) research indicates that successful driving test candidates have had an average of 45 hours of professional driving tuition and 22 hours of practice with family or friends.

Converting this into an Intensive Driving Course would mean that someone with little or no previous driving experience would typically need approximately a 10 day course.

The duration of Intensive Driving Course you will actually require will depend on:-

Most of the Intensive Driving Courses that we do are between 5 and 7 days.

The initial driving assessment is extremely important.

The driving assessment enables us to ensure that you get the right duration of course to suit your ability, so that you have every chance of being successful on your driving test.

How Will My Intensive Driving Course Be Structured?

Your Intensive Driving Course will start with a Driving Assessment.

The Driving Assessment enables us to assess your previous experience, your current ability, and the rate at which you learn, so that we can advise you of the suitable duration of Intensive Driving Course.

We then plan your intensive driving course with you, to fit around your availability, and the availability of driving test appointments.

As a guide, your driving test appointment will probably be about 6 weeks after the initial driving assessment.

I Have Not Driven Before Can I Do An Intensive Driving Course?

We offer Intensive Driving Courses ranging from 3 days to 10 days, simply because different people will have differing levels of experience and ability.

A 3 or 4 day course may be suitable for someone that is almost ready for their driving test.

Someone with little or no driving experience is more likely to need a 9 or 10 day intensive driving course.

Before booking an Intensive Driving Course, we always start with a Driving Assessment, that way we can be sure to plan a suitable course.

A 9 or 10 day intensive driving course can be quite demanding, so an alternative could be to split an Intensive Driving Course into two shorter courses, with a week or two break in between them.

An advantage of splitting an Intensive Driving Course into two shorter courses can be that the first course can act as an assessment for the second course.

The driving test appointment and both Intensive Driving Courses can be booked.

At the end of the first Intensive Driving Course, we can advise you whether you need the 5 days for the second intensive driving course, or whether a shorter course of perhaps 3 or 4 days would be suitable.

Residential Intensive Driving Courses

Clients not living in the Sandwell or West Midlands area can take a residential intensive driving course by staying in one of the many hotels or guesthouses in the Sandwell area.

Websites such as TripAdvisor or Trivago could help you to select suitable accommodation, if you need any advice on locations, please ask.

We would meet you at your hotel each morning and end your Intensive Driving Course each day at your hotel.

A Driving Assessment would still be necessary before booking your Intensive Driving Course, but this could be arranged with us meeting you at the train or bus station.

Intensive Pass Plus Driving Course Prices

The Pass Plus Driving Course consists of 6 modules and must be completed over a minimum of 6 hours.

The Pass Plus Driving Course can be delivered in a full day of driver training.

To complete the course, we need to be able to sign off each module as being achieved, it is extremely rare that we cannot do this within the 6 hours of training, but in rare occasions we would have to recommend extra training sessions in order to achieve the required standard.
