Book an Intensive Driving Course

Even though intensive driving courses in Holme Wood 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 are the fastest and most affordable way to pass your driving test. Lessons are longer than the standard hourly lesson on an intensive driving course because the course is only spread out over a couple of days or weeks, as opposed to being spread across a few months. 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 all driving students to take at minimum 40 hours of professional driving tuition, before they sit the driving exam. You could 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.

automatic driving lessons Holme Wood another student passed their testIt is not necessarily easier to learn how to drive an automatic car, it all depends on what you are dealing with. 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. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. The automatic car allows you to take your driving exam without worrying about stalling or having to use clutch control. 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?

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. Another downside of learning to drive an automatic vehicle is that when you pass your driving test in an automatic, it doesn’t mean you can also drive a manual car. Your licence will allow both if you pass your manual driving test. 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. 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.
