Driving is a necessary skill. This skill can open up new avenues to freedom and independence. You could be taking driving lessons as you have to commute to work, to pick up your children at school or to simply make it easier to get to where you need to be. You can count on our friendly, professional driving instructors to help you. Your driving instructor will begin with an introduction chat to learn about your driving skills and experience. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t had any driving lessons previously as the majority of our customers have never taken driving lessons previously either. They will then check that your provisional license is valid, check your eyesight and go over the basics of the car that you will be learning in. Local driving instructors know Holme better than anyone else. Your driving lesson will be held in quiet surroundings away from any traffic so that you can slowly improve your confidence with driving. You will learn about the different pedals and how to steer, control your clutch, move off and stop. You’ll face new challenges as you improve your driving skills. Your driving instructor will carefully plan every lesson of you so that you will drive through various junctions, roundabouts, and pedestrian crossings in a familiar setting. Bad habits are difficult to break, so it’s important that you learn how to drive safely as soon as you start learning to drive. Our driving instructors are trained to help you be safe on the roads and pass your driving test. You will benefit from their extensive knowledge and experience in driving and become a safe, confident 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. It will give you an overview of where you are at and the amount you still have to learn.
Holme intensive driving course student passed first timeIf you want to pass your driving test quickly, intensive driving lessons are an option. We offer outstanding intensive driving courses all over Holme and have many instructors that have the expertise, knowledge and customised crash courses to get you passing your driving test quickly. Whether you are just starting lessons or looking to improve your driving skills, an intensive driving course is a great option. 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.

Book an Intensive Driving Course

Even though intensive driving courses in Holme can be quite demanding, you may find the results to be well worth it if your goal is to pass your driving test quickly. They can be the fastest, most economical way 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 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 all driving students complete at least 40 hours professional driving tuition before sitting the driving test. Another option is to book weekly driving lessons. Although this is a good option, it will take you between 4 and 6 months to complete with one 2 hour lesson every week. If you only book a 1-hour lesson per week it will take you 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.

Holme 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. You won’t notice a difference if you struggling with a common problem such as observation. You might find it easier to learn how to drive in an automatic if you have trouble with clutch control and gear changes. 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. For both experienced drivers and those just starting to learn how to drive manual cars, this can be frustrating. The automatic car allows you to take your driving exam without worrying about stalling or having to use clutch control. 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 you can see, automatic cars are more expensive to own, maintain and run. 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. 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. The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. However, don’t let this deter you as every year thousands of learners pass their driving tests in automatic cars.
