Why do intensive courses work so well?

Learning to drive taking only 1 or 2 hours of tuition a week will never be enough practice time for most learners to make real progress. On average students learning by hourly tuition will take between 6  to 14 months to achieve the driving test standard. Preparing for your Driving Test

Will an intensive course be right for me?

For most people the answer is yes. At the end of your first day because you will be taking in a lot of information , you will be tired, but as each day unfolds you will find that you will feel more lively and everything becomes easier. Remember that intensive courses are proven to be the fastest way for learners of all ages when learning to drive and are now common place in the UK. Police drivers, the Armed Forces, LGV drivers, Bus drivers and even Driving Examiners will have been trained in this way.

Which intensive course should I take?

Learning with an intensive driving course means that your training will be over days not months.
Everything you learn will stay fresh in your mind encouraging a new confidence in your driving to grow and because the driving test is taken with your course it is possible for you to learn to drive and pass the practical UK driving test, in 10 days or less.
It’s no wonder more learners are turning to intensive driving courses when learning to drive than ever before.

Testimonial – Philip London

“Intensive Courses proved to be the answer to my prayers. I had to get a driving license before my pregnant wife went into labour and had left myself just a month to do so. As a thirty-two-year-old with very little experience and a well-developed fear of driving I wasn’t hopeful but the attention to detail, genuine care and quality teaching I received from Mark ensured that I passed first time within a few weeks of my first lesson. I really cannot recommend this company highly enough.”
