Our intensive driving courses range from a couple of days to several weeks depending on your previous
driving experience and the amount of time you wish to set aside for practice each day.
Most beginners require on average around 40 hours of professional tuition,
although this varies significantly from person to person. All our intensive courses are taught on
a one-to-one basis with a fully qualified, DSA registered Drivecoach instructor.
Intensive course structure
The course will start with an assessment lesson (explained below), after which we can arrange your course dates
and book your driving test. If you haven't yet passed the theory test we also have course
packages that include the theory test fee and study material.
Each day of the course will consist of between one and three 2-hour training sessions with a short
refreshment break in between each session.
Training will be in accordance with the most current DSA syllabus and the driving test will be arranged as the final
hour of your course.
To determine the most suitable course package, you'll first need to complete a
two hour assessment lesson with one of our driving instructors. This is also
an opportunity for you get to know the instructor and try out the tuition car prior to
booking your intensive driving course.
The assessment lesson can be taken any time, however we recommend you book it as early as possible, at least 3 weeks prior to the
start date of your course.
Complete beginner (40 hours)
This course is aimed at pupils with very little, if any previous driving experience who need to be
taught all their driving skills. The course can be spread over 7 to 10 days, or longer depending on your requirements.
Novice driver (30 hours)
As a novice student, you'll already have had around 10-15 hours experience with an instructor or a
family member driving in a car park or on roads with light traffic.
You would likely have practiced car control, steering, clutch control when moving away, stopping and
some gear changing.
Intermediate (20 hours)
As an intermediate driver, you'll be expected to have a good car control and fairly confident
driving in medium traffic, moving off at junctions, roundabouts. You'd have practiced most driving test
manoeuvres although likely to still need further practice. This course is normally taken over 5 days,
starting on Monday with the Test on the Friday.
Advanced / Failed test (12 hours)
If you've been driving extensively on a foreign licence or recently failed your driving test, then this course
may be right for you. Your instructor will focus on helping you work off bad habits and
to correct common driving mistakes. The course is normally taken over two or three days with
the driving test taken as the final hour.
