We offer great intensive driving courses in Bolton and have many instructors who are highly qualified and knowledgeable to give you the crash courses and expertise that will help you pass your driving test quickly. An intensive driving course is great if are just starting your driving lessons and learning to drive from scratch, or if you are wanting to refresh your skills before taking your driving test. Intensive lessons are available in a variety of lengths, from a two-hour daily lesson to consecutive days with back-to-back lessons. Our instructors can be as flexible as you require.

Why book an intensive driving course?

Even though intensive driving courses in Bolton can be quite demanding, you may find the results to be well worth it if your goal is to pass your driving test quickly. A driving intensive course is the fastest and most cost-effective way to pass your driving test. Because intensive driving courses are usually spread over several days or a couple of weeks, rather than being spread out over several months, your driving lessons tend to be longer than the standard hourly lessons, anywhere from 2hrs to 6 hrs. A 2-day intensive driving course will give you 10 hours of driving training. Individuals with no driving experience are able to take intensive driving courses that last longer so that you get the driving tuition required. The DSA recommends all driving students to take at minimum 40 hours of professional driving tuition, before they sit the driving exam. You could book weekly driving lessons. It is possible to choose this route. However, if you book a 2 hour weekly lesson, it will take between 4 and 6 months to pass your driving test. For 1-hour lessons each week, it will take approximately 8 to 12 months before you pass. As the lessons are so spread out there’s a good chance that you will spend much of your lesson time repeating the lessons from the week before.

automatic driving lessons Bolton another student passed their testAlthough learning to drive in an automatic car can be easier than driving a manual car, it all depends on your specific difficulties. Learning in an automatic car won’t help you if your problem is observation If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. It is much easier to learn how to drive in urban areas that are jam-packed with traffic. It is a stop-start driving style that means you’ll be changing gears constantly. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. An automatic car makes it easier when doing your driving test as you do not have the risk of stalling the car and any struggles you have with clutch control. A learner will have a lot less difficulty with driving manoeuvres, such as turning in the road or starting from a hill due to no gears or clutch control required. If you have difficulties with the gears in a manual car, an automatic car may be a better choice. You might find it easier to learn how to drive and pass your driving test.

Is There A Downside To Driving An Automatic Car?

As we have already mentioned, automatic cars are generally more expensive to buy, run and maintain. Automatic driving lessons can also be more costly than manual lessons because of this. One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. You can drive both manual and automatic cars if your test is passed in a manual car. This means that if you are taking your driving test in an automatic car, it may limit your options when renting or buying a car in the future. If you decide that you want to drive a manual vehicle, you will need to take the test again The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. Don’t let this discourage you though, as thousands of learners pass the driving test in automatic vehicles every year.

Are you looking for a new challenge or the opportunity to be your own boss. Then becoming a Bolton driving instructor might just be exactly what you are looking for.

driving instructor training Bolton driving manoeuvres testThere is a large backlog of people interested in learning to drive, which makes it a perfect time to become a driving instructor. There is no need to have any prior driving instructor experience. You only need to be at least 21 and have had a driving licence for a minimum of 3 years, not had more than five penalty points in the last four years, and want to work in a job that allows you to have control of your life and earn a better living.

It is a good idea to first have a read through the official DVSA guidelines before you become a driving instructor. Driving instructor training will usually take about 12 months. It will take a minimum of 6 months to complete your driving instructor training, assuming that you complete and pass everything in your first attempt, which is extremely unlikely.

You must pass three DVSA driving instructor tests to be approved by the DVSA. The tests are challenging so that the people who pass can be fully prepared to teach others how to drive. To become a qualified driving instructor, you must have the same commitment as any adult learning program. If you have the right attitude to succeed as a driving instructor, there’s no reason why your test scores will not be passes.
