The semi- intensive driving Course
This course is ideal for those who are in a hurry, who could not otherwise find the time.And consists of 30 hours of driver training on a one pupil to one instructor ratio and includes 2 hours for the driving test.Price includes one attempt at the practical driving test.
The driving test would normaly be arranged for the last day of the course or soon after depending on your preferance. If you want a test at the end of the course you would need to book the course and pass the theory test well in advance of the required start date i.e. at least one month in advance. However, occasionally short notice driving tests can be arranged.
For those who have already learned the basic control skills of driving we have the
Midway Pass Course
The in-car training provided is 20 hours on a one pupil to one instructor basis. (This includes 2 hours for attending the driving test).Price includes one attempt at the practical driving test.
For those nearing test standard and who just need a short burst of lessons prior to the test we have the Test Booster Course. which consists of 15 hours in car training It is also ideal for those who have had an attempt at the test some time ago but haven’t had any lessons since.Price includes one attempt at the practical driving test.
Learning to drive can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a block.
Lessons are usually 75 minutes long (including 15 minutes pickup time). Therefore, you would receive a full hour of in-car tuition on each lesson.
How many hours will it take?
The best way to learn to drive is to take regular lessons spread over a few weeks on a semi-intensive basis. Pupils using the ‘‘one-lesson-a-week’’ approach often take many months to learn to drive. While this helps to spread out the cost you do end up paying more in the long run. This is because you often forget what you have learned from one week to the next . You end up taking two steps forward and one step back. Consequently, you take many more lessons to pass the test. If you are taking just one -lesson-a-week you would need to increase the hours you need to learn to drive by at least 50%. Therefore if on a semi-intensive basis you need 30 hours to learn to drive it is likely that you would need 45 hours on a one lesson per week basis. This is the real reason why so many driving instructors encourage their pupils to take just one lesson a week and avoid doing intensive or semi-intensive courses.
In the UK people usually take somewhere between 20 and 40 hours to learn to drive.How many lessons you need will depend upon your motivation and aptitude for driving, whether you have had any relevant past experience, and whether or not you can obtain any supplementary practice between lessons with a relative or friend. The above courses are therefore only a guide to what hours you might need based on the circumstances outlined. It is not a guarantee that you will be ready for the test; this will depend on your individual progress.
