Book an Intensive Driving Course

Although intensive driving courses in Bradford are often very demanding, they can help you pass your test more quickly. They are the fastest and most affordable way to pass your driving test. The intensive driving course lessons are longer than your standard hourly lessons, from 2hrs – 6hrs long. Plus instead of your lessons being spread over several months they are completed in a couple of days or weeks. A two-day intensive driving class will provide 10 hours of instruction instead of the usual 1 hour per week. People with no driving experience can take longer intensive courses to make sure that you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that every driving student should take at least 40 hours of professional driving instruction before sitting for the driving test. An alternative option is to book weekly driving lessons. This route is fine. However, it can take 4 to 6 months to pass your driving test if your weekly lesson lasts for a total of 2 hours. A 1-hour lesson per week will take 8 to 12 months. Due to the lessons being so spaced out it is possible that you will spend most of your lesson time recapping the lessons from the previous week.

Bradford Bradford automatic driving lessons another student passedBradford automatic driving lessons first time passedIt is not necessarily easier to learn how to drive an automatic car, it all depends on what you are dealing with. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. Driving in an automatic is a good option if your problems with clutch control or gear changing. Driving in urban areas with lots congestion it is easier. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. You can take your driving test in an automatic car, eliminating the possibility of the car stalling and any clutch control problems. 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.

Are There Any Downsides To Driving An Automatic Car?

Automatic cars are more costly to purchase, maintain and run than manual cars. 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. If you pass your driving test in a manual car, your license will permit you to drive both. 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. You will have to take your driving test again if you decide to drive a manual car. 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.
