No need to worry if you’ve never taken driving lessons before as the majority of our customers do not have any prior driving experience. During the chat, the instructor will verify that your provisional licence is in good order, conduct an eye examination, and then explain the basics of the vehicle you will be learning in. No one knows Halifax more than a local driving instructor. Your driving lesson will be held in quiet surroundings away from any traffic so that you can slowly improve your confidence with driving.

They have extensive experience and knowledge of driving that they will use to help make you a confident and safer driver. Your driving instructor will provide a written log of your driving progress. Your progress report will detail all topics you need to know to be a safe and confident driver. These include techniques such as parallel parking, turning in the road (3-point turn), reversing around a corner, and an emergency stop.

intensive driving course Halifax student passed first timeIf you’re looking for a quick way to pass your driving test in order to obtain your licence, intensive driving lessons might be the right choice. We offer excellent intensive driving lessons in Halifax and have many instructors who have the knowledge, expertise, and tailored crash courses to help you pass your driving exam 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. We can offer intensive lessons from two hours a day to several days of back-to-back lessons. We can also be flexible to meet your needs.

Why book an intensive driving course?

Although intensive driving courses in Halifax are often very demanding, they can help you pass your test more quickly. The can be the quickest and most cost-effective method 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 that every driving student should take at least 40 hours of professional driving instruction before sitting for the driving test. Another 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. As your lessons are so far apart you will likely spend a lot more time reviewing the lessons from the previous week.

Halifax Halifax automatic driving lessons another student 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. You might find it easier to learn how to drive in an automatic if you have trouble with clutch control and gear changes. When you learn to drive in an urban environment with lots of traffic, there is less to worry about. Driving in traffic-heavy areas will require you to change gears frequently because of the constant stop-start nature. Even if you’re an experienced driver, this can be quite frustrating. 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. You might have difficulty managing the gears of a manual car. If this is the case, it might be easier to learn to drive in an automatic car.

Is There A Downside To Driving An Automatic Car?

As stated above, automatic cars tend be more expensive than manual cars to purchase, run and maintain. Automatic driving lessons can also be more costly than manual lessons because of this. You should also remember that learning to drive and passing your test in an automatic does not allow you to drive a manual vehicle. If you pass your driving test in a manual car, your license will permit you to drive both. You may find that passing your test in an automatic car could limit your options for buying or renting a car in the future. 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. However, don’t let this deter you as every year thousands of learners pass their driving tests in automatic cars.
