Book an Intensive Driving Course

Even though intensive driving lessons in Westfield 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. 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. People with no driving experience can take longer intensive courses to make sure that you get enough tuition. The DSA recommends that all drivers take at least 40 hours of professional driving tuition before taking the driving test. An alternative option is to book weekly driving lessons. While this route is great, it can be very time-consuming. If you take a 2-hour lesson each week, it could take up to 4 to 6 months to pass your driving test. On the other hand, a 1-hour lesson each week will take around 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.

automatic driving lessons Westfield another student passed their testDriving 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. Driving in urban areas with lots congestion it is easier. Driving in traffic-heavy areas will require you to change gears frequently because of the constant stop-start nature. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. 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.

Is There A Downside To Driving An Automatic Car?

Automatic cars are more costly to purchase, maintain and run than manual cars. This is why automatic driving lessons are more expensive than manual driving lessons. 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. 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. 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.
