Are Intensive Driving Courses for You?

When people decide to learn to drive, like a lot of things in life these day’s, they want it (their driving licence) like, yesterday! There may be good reasons for someone wanting to pass their driving test quickly; a new job, going abroad, during college/university holidays etc. These are known as Driving Crash Courses (Intensive Driving Courses).

So, what is an intensive driving course?

Every person is unique so the number of hours practice required to reach the required standard for the driving test will vary from one person to another. Experience has shown, the number of hours necessary for the average candidate varied between twenty five to thirty five. Obviously, some people will do this quicker and others longer. A lot depends on their previous road experience (had driving lessons before, driven a moped), their level of spatial awareness (the the skill of judging distance, speed and angles) and any private practice they may undertake. Some people take to driving like a duck to water, others do not!

Intensive driving courses are simply having that number of hours of driving lessons over a shorter period. That could be over a few day’s a few weeks or longer. “Great! My driving licence in a week!” – not necessarily so. If you try and get say, forty hours of training done in 7 day’s, the 7 day’s will be very intense and possibly stressful for you. Now, some people can cope with this and others not. If you are someone that might struggle with that speed of learning and stress, then you may not be ready for your test at the end of that week.

Most people adopt a ‘middle of the road’ approach and have say, ten hours in a week (two hours per day). That way, as the training is spread over one month, they have more time to take in and digest the new information and driving skills they are learning. Still, 4 weeks is better than 1 lesson per week over 40 weeks!

What Driving crash courses are not

They are not a ‘magic pill’ to gaining a licence to drive on the public roads. A guaranteed pass is a myth – nobody could guarantee that! At the end of the day, it is yourself and you only that will be taking the test. Errors can happen and nerves may play a part in that. If you see such claims, be wary. Their guarantee could just be that if you fail the driving test, they will provide another driving test at the driving school’s cost.

If you do need to pass your driving test fast, it is best to discuss with a number of driver trainers to see what deals they offer and how they relate to you during your first conversation. Also, before booking and paying for your driving crash course up-front (most training establishments will require this to confirm such a courses) you should plan to have a lesson or two from your shortlist to see how you actually get on with them and that their training methods accord with your style of learning.

The Driving Schools Directory offers an Intensive Driving Courses Pupils Enquiry Service that, after you have completed a few basic details, they will contact all the driving instructors in your chosen area and those driver trainers will make contact with you. This removes much of the leg-work for you and makes the process of inquiring about your intensive driving course far easier.
