Book an Intensive Driving Course

Although intensive driving courses in Guiseley 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. For those with no driving experience, there are longer intensive courses to ensure you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends all driving students to take at minimum 40 hours of professional driving tuition, before they sit the driving exam. Alternative options include booking 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.

automatic driving lessons Guiseley 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 It is possible to learn to drive an automatic car if gear changes or clutch control are difficult for you. When you learn to drive in an urban environment with lots of traffic, there is less to worry about. 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. You can take your driving test in an automatic car, eliminating the possibility of the car stalling and any clutch control problems. Because there are no gears so you do not need a clutch in an automatic car, it is much easier to perform manoeuvres like a turn in traffic or a hill start. 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?

As stated above, automatic cars tend be more expensive than manual cars to purchase, run and maintain. This is why automatic driving lessons are more expensive than manual driving 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. It is possible that your future choices in buying or renting a vehicle or van may be limited by taking your driving test in an automatic car. You will have to take your driving test again if you decide to drive a manual car. In general, automatic cars have lower pass rates than manual cars. This shouldn’t discourage you, however, as many learners pass their driving test with automatic cars each year.
