intensive driving course Springfield student passed first timeIf you’re looking for a quick way to pass your driving test in order to obtain your licence, intensive driving lessons might be the right choice. We offer great intensive driving courses in Springfield and have many instructors who are highly qualified and knowledgeable to give you the crash courses and expertise that will help you pass your driving test quickly. A driving intensive course can be a great way to either start learning to drive, or if you are just wanting to refresh your skills before taking your driving test. Intensive lessons are available in a variety of lengths, from a two-hour daily lesson to consecutive days with back-to-back lessons. Our instructors can be as flexible as you require.

Why book an intensive driving course?

Although intensive driving courses in Springfield are often very demanding, they can help you pass your test more quickly. They can be the fastest, most economical way to pass your driving test. The intensive driving course lessons are longer than your standard hourly lessons, from 2hrs – 6hrs long. Plus instead of your lessons being spread over several months they are completed in a couple of days or weeks. A 2-day intensive driving program will need you driving for 10 hours. 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. Alternative options include booking 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 the lessons being so spaced out it is possible that you will spend most of your lesson time recapping the lessons from the previous week.

automatic driving lessons Springfield another student passedautomatic driving lessons Springfield first time passedDriving an automatic car is not necessarily any easier, it depends on the issues you are having. 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. It is much easier to learn how to drive in urban areas that are jam-packed with traffic. Because of the nature of urban driving, you will have to change gears often. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. You can take your driving test in an automatic car, eliminating the possibility of the car stalling and any clutch control problems. 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. 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. You should also remember that learning to drive and passing your test in an automatic does not allow you to drive a manual vehicle. However, if you pass your test in a manual car, you will be able to drive both. 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. Also, if later you decide you would prefer to drive manual cars, then you’ll need to take another driving test. In general, automatic cars have lower pass rates than manual cars. However, don’t let this deter you as every year thousands of learners pass their driving tests in automatic cars.

Are you looking for a new challenge or to be your own boss? If so then now might be the right time to become a driving instructor in Springfield.

driving instructor training Springfield student passesAt the moment there is a backlog of people who are wanting to learn how to drive, which means now is a great time to become a driving instructor. There is no prior driving instructor experience necessary. The requirements include that you must be 21 or older, have had a driver’s license for at least three years, not had more than five penalty points in the last four years, and want to find a job that gives you the freedom to make your own decisions or earn more money and do something that you always wanted to.

Before becoming a driving instructor, you should read through the official DVSA guidelines. Your training to become a qualified driving instructor will usually take around 12 months. The minimum time it will take to complete your driving instructor training is 6 months, that’s if you get everything passed the first time, but that is highly unlikely.

The DVSA set the driving instructor certification requirements and there are three tests that you need to pass. The tests are challenging so that the people who pass can be fully prepared to teach others how to drive. To become a qualified driving instructor, you must have the same commitment as any adult learning program. If you have the right attitude to succeed as a driving instructor, there’s no reason why your test scores will not be passes.
