Intensive Driving Course

Intensive driving courses (often jokingly referred to as “crash courses”) are the fastest way to learn driving, pass the official driving test and to gain a full UK driving licence.

According to Andrew Roberts, the course would take about one week and hopefully at the end of it you would be the proud owner of a driving licence. Even if you fail the practical test you have all the knowledge to pass it at a later date, may be after a few shorter refresher courses.

The biggest advantage of such a course is that you will learn to drive in 5 days time what could take months to learn if learnt otherwise. You will normally pay a flat rate for the course and this usually includes both payments on the driving exam (the theory which is done half way through learning, and the practical part of the driving test done at the end).

Though intensive driving courses only lasts for few days, the quality of the lessons is not compromised. The course also has all the ingredients of a normal driving course including mock tests, driving assessments and theory lessons in learning the Highway Code. Mock tests help students to get used to the difficult aspects of a real driving test. After participating in the mock tests, students would be confident in facing the real driving test.

Some driving schools have started to offer residential intensive driving courses for the students whereby the students would stay at the residential area offered by the school and learn to drive. These are seen as effective as by staying in a residence, there are fewer distractions for the students, and can remain focused on learning to drive. The driving instructor will take the students from the residential area and will drop them back to the place after each day's course. By learning this way, you can often see quicker results as the residents of the course are a lot more focused on driving.
