intensive driving course Eccleshill student passed first timeIf you want to pass your driving test quickly, intensive driving lessons are an option. We offer outstanding intensive driving courses all over Eccleshill and have many instructors that have the expertise, knowledge and customised crash courses to get you passing your driving test quickly.

An intensive driving class is ideal if you want to learn the basics of driving from scratch or you want to improve your skills in preparation for taking your driving test. You can choose from daily lessons lasting two hours or consecutive days of back-to back lessons. We are as flexible as your needs allow us to be.

Why book an intensive driving course?

Although intensive driving courses in Eccleshill are often very demanding, they can help you pass your test more quickly. They can be the fastest, most economical way to pass your driving test.

With intensive driving courses, the length of the driving lessons is longer than your standard hourly lessons, between 2 hrs to 6 hrs long. And they are usually spread over several days or weeks rather than being spread over many months. A two-day intensive driving class will provide 10 hours of instruction instead of the usual 1 hour per week. For those with no driving experience, there are longer intensive courses to ensure you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that all driving students complete at least 40 hours professional driving tuition before sitting the driving test.

Alternative options include booking weekly driving lessons. Although this is a good option, it will take you between 4 and 6 months to complete with one 2 hour lesson every week. If you only book a 1-hour lesson per week it will take you 8 to 12 months. Due to your driving lessons being once a week there is a good chance that  you’ll spend a lot time re-capping previous lessons.

automatic driving-lessons another student passed their testThe process of learning how to drive an automatic car isn’t always easier, it all depends upon what difficulties you are experiencing. You won’t notice a difference if you struggling with a common problem such as observation.

If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. When you learn to drive in an urban environment with lots of traffic, there is less to worry about. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be an issue for experienced drivers as well as those who are learning to drive a manual vehicle.

The automatic car allows you to take your driving exam without worrying about stalling or having to use clutch control.

If you have trouble managing the gears in a manual vehicle, you might find that learning to drive an automatic car is easier. This could mean you take fewer lessons to pass your test and receive your driving license.

Are There Any Downsides To Driving An Automatic Car?

As stated above, automatic cars tend be more expensive than manual cars to purchase, run and maintain. Because of this, automatic driving lessons tend to be more expensive than manual lessons.

One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. Your licence will allow both if you pass your manual driving test.

Passing your driving test in an automatic vehicle may restrict your choices when it comes to renting or buying a car or van in the future. In the event that you decide later to drive a manually-operated car, you will need another test.

Pass rates for automatic cars are usually lower than those in manual cars. Don’t let this discourage you though, as thousands of learners pass the driving test in automatic vehicles every year.
