Why book an intensive driving course?

Even though intensive driving courses in Moor Side 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. In a 2 day intensive driving course you will have 10 hours of driving For those with no driving experience, there are longer intensive courses to ensure you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that every driving student should take at least 40 hours of professional driving instruction before sitting for the driving test. You could 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. 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.

Moor Side automatic driving lessons 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. You won’t notice a difference if you struggling with a common problem such as observation. If you are having difficulty with clutch control or gear changes, learning to drive an automatic will be a lot easier. There is much less to consider when learning to drive in a city with lots of congestion. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be an issue for experienced drivers as well as those who are learning to drive a manual vehicle. 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. 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. 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 Downsides to Driving an Automatic Car?

As you can see, automatic cars are more expensive to own, maintain and run. This is why automatic driving lessons are more expensive than manual driving lessons. One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. However, if you pass your test in a manual car, you will be able to drive both. 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. You will have to take your driving test again if you decide to drive a manual car. Automatic cars have a lower pass rate than manual cars. This shouldn’t discourage you, however, as many learners pass their driving test with automatic cars each year.
