A common question we get asked is should I do an Intensive Driving Course? An intensive driving course or ‘crash course’ is a series of driving lessons, taken over a short period, typically from 2 days to 10 days. 

For many this is a popular way of fast tracking your driving and obtaining a driving licence. Be warned, they aren’t for everybody, so read on and you will have a better understanding of what a driving course will entail. 

Firstly, you’ll need a provisional driving licence, and you will have to of passed the theory test too. Costs do vary. See our Crash Course Prices.

What is a driving crash course?

A crash course or Intensive Course,  Is typically from 2 -10  consecutive days of driving lessons, normally around 5 hours a day. So, instead of having weekly lessons that are usually 1 hour per lesson, and stretched out over several months, A crash course makes it possible to condense the whole learning process into a short period of time. Don’t be worried by the name “Crash Course” this is just a slang term used for the course. 

Will the course be suited to me?

This depends on the type of person you are.  You will be sitting in a car for a very long time, usually 5 hours a day. Some people who have a short attention span may struggle, our driving instructors offer regular breaks to ensure you don’t exert yourself. Most of our customers find that the day goes really quick and prefer the longer sessions to absorb all the information. They are often amazed how much and how quickly they learn.

100% Guaranteed Pass?

No such thing.  Some companies may tell you that you are guaranteed to pass the driving test the first time, but this is not the case. You could be the worlds best driver and go out on test and fluff something up, which could result in a fail. 

When making the booking, the driving school will ask you questions about your previous driving experience. It’s important that you answer honestly. We will then advise on what course would be best for you. If you prefer, we can offer an assessment lesson and then advise you on what course may be suitable. 

The DVSA state that on average, those who pass their driving test have had 47 hours of driving lessons and 20 hours of private practice.
