Why book an intensive driving course?

Even though intensive driving courses in Henshaw 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. With intensive driving courses, the length of the driving lessons is longer than your standard hourly lessons, between 2 hrs to 6 hrs long. And they are usually spread over several days or weeks rather than being spread over many months. A 2-day intensive driving program will need you driving for 10 hours. People with no driving experience can take longer intensive courses to make sure that you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that all driving students complete at least 40 hours professional driving tuition before sitting the driving test. An alternative option is to book weekly driving lessons. While this route is great, it can be very time-consuming. If you take a 2-hour lesson each week, it could take up to 4 to 6 months to pass your driving test. On the other hand, a 1-hour lesson each week will take around 8 to 12 months. 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 Henshaw another student passed their testDriving an automatic car is not necessarily any easier, it depends on the issues you are having. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. It is possible to learn to drive an automatic car if gear changes or clutch control are difficult for you. 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. Even if you’re an experienced driver, this can be quite frustrating. 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. 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.

Are There Downsides to Driving an Automatic Car?

Automatic cars are more costly to purchase, maintain and run than manual cars. Automatic driving lessons can also be more costly than manual lessons because of this. A downside to learning to drive an automatic car is that your license does not qualify you to drive a manual car. Your licence will allow both if you pass your manual driving test. Passing your driving test in an automatic vehicle may restrict your choices when it comes to renting or buying a car or van in the future. If you decide that you want to drive a manual vehicle, you will need to take the test again Automatic cars have a lower pass rate than manual cars. However, don’t let this deter you as every year thousands of learners pass their driving tests in automatic cars.
