All Driver Skills North East driving courses start between 1 – 5 weeks prior to your driving 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?

What you do: You choose and pay for the course you’d like here then leave the rest to us.

What we do: We book the quickest driving test available at Durham Driving Test Centre and arrange your course of lessons leading up to the test date.

What Your Instructor Does: Your instructor will contact you prior to your course start date to introduce themselves and talk you through your course. You will next see them when they come to pick you up for your first lesson. Once you’ve completed the course you’ll sit your practical driving test at your chosen practical driving test centre.
