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.

Book an Intensive Driving Course

Even though intensive driving lessons in Eastbrook can be extremely demanding, it can still be worth the effort if you’re looking for a quicker way to pass your driving test. 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. For those with no driving experience, there are longer intensive courses to ensure you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that all drivers take at least 40 hours of professional driving tuition before taking the driving test. An alternative option is to 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. 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.

Eastbrook 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. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. There is much less to consider when learning to drive in a city with lots of congestion. Because of the nature of urban driving, you will have to change gears often. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. Taking your driving test in an automatic car is easier than driving in a manual car 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 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 we have already mentioned, automatic cars are generally more expensive to buy, run and maintain. Because of this, automatic driving lessons tend to be more expensive than manual lessons. A downside to learning to drive an automatic car is that your license does not qualify you to drive a manual car. However, if you pass your test in a manual car, you will be able 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. In the event that you decide later to drive a manually-operated car, you will need another test. The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. Don’t let it discourage you! Every year, thousands of learners pass driving tests in automatic car.

Eastbrook driving instructor training Eastbrook student passesAt the moment there is a backlog of people who are wanting to learn how to drive, which means now is a great time to become a driving instructor. It doesn’t matter if you do not have any previous driving instructor experience. The requirements include that you must be 21 or older, have had a driver’s license for at least three years, not had more than five penalty points in the last four years, and want to find a job that gives you the freedom to make your own decisions or earn more money and do something that you always wanted to.

Before you make a start to becoming a driving instructor it is a good idea that you read through the official DVSA guidelines. Driving instructor training will usually take about 12 months. Your training will take a minimum of 6 months to complete, that is if you pass everything on your first attempt, which is highly unlikely.

To become an approved driving instructor, you must pass the all of the 3 DVSA’s tests. The tests are challenging so that the people who pass can be fully prepared to teach others how to drive. As with all adult learning courses, driving instructors must be dedicated and work hard to achieve their qualifications. With the right attitude and determination, it is possible to pass the exams and become a driving instructor.
