Book an Intensive Driving Course

Even though intensive driving lessons in Leeds can be extremely demanding, it can still be worth the effort if you’re looking for a quicker way to pass your driving test. The can be the quickest and most cost-effective method 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. 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. Due to your driving lessons being once a week there is a good chance that  you’ll spend a lot time re-capping previous lessons.

Leeds Leeds 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. If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. It is much easier to learn how to drive in urban areas that are jam-packed with traffic. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. Even if you’re an experienced driver, this can be quite frustrating. An automatic car makes it easier when doing your driving test as you do not have the risk of stalling the car and any struggles you have with clutch control. A learner will have a lot less difficulty with driving manoeuvres, such as turning in the road or starting from a hill due to no gears or clutch control required. 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 Downsides to Driving an Automatic Car?

As we have already mentioned, automatic cars are generally more expensive to buy, run and maintain. Automatic driving lessons can often be more expensive that manual driving lessons because of this. One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. Your licence will allow both if you pass your manual driving test. 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. Also, if later you decide you would prefer to drive manual cars, then you’ll need to take another driving test. The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. Don’t let it discourage you! Every year, thousands of learners pass driving tests in automatic car.
