All our courses start between 1 – 6 weeks prior to your test date with your final driving lesson being on the test date itself. Our courses are fully adaptable to each pupil. If you are still unsure of which course to choose we recommend you book an assessment drive first where you will receive professional advice and guidance from your driving instructor on the length of course applicable to your current driving ability. This will ensure you are best equipped and trained for the practical test.

How Does an Intensive driving course work?


Step 1: We take a £99 deposit for the course and book the quickest driving test available at your chosen test centre.

Step 2: Your driving instructor will contact you to arrange your course of lessons leading up to the test date.

Step 3: You pay the remaining balance to your instructor on the first day of your course, which will also be your first lesson and on the last day of your course you’ll sit the practical test.
