Intensive Courses

Our Intensive Driving Courses are most suited to potential drivers who need to pass the driving test in as short a time as possible and are available to take lessons every day over a period of at least 8 days.

Where possible we like to do an assessment lesson  some time before running an intensive course as this gives us a chance to assess your driving ability and learning style in order that we can match our training to your needs  and ensure that you pass the driving test on your first attempt.  This will also give you confidence in our Driving Instructors ability to help you through what is a demanding course. You also have the option of backing out, if you don't think an intensive course is for you.


You can take this assessment lesson  before you sit your Theory Test, but  remember we cannot book your practical test until you have passed your theory test.


Driving tests are subject to availability and may require 6 weeks notice in some cases. It may be possible to obtain a date much quicker but this is not within our control.


Courses are structured over 1, 2 or 3 weeks and will involve a training session every day of between 2 and 4 hours. Training for longer than 4 hours in one session is not recommended as concentration tends to fade very quickly after this time.


A typical course might be 20 hours taken over 8 days ending with the test. This would have 5 days at 3 hours, a rest day, 1 day at 4 hours and test day with 1 hour training before the test.  The use of the car for the test is free on intensive courses.




Assessment Lesson £30.00

20 hour course including test fee £525.00

30 hour course including test fee £675.00


Training must be taken between the hours of 8am and 8pm from March to September or 9am to 5pm from October to February and the test must be Monday–Friday to qualify for these prices.




Courses must be paid in advance, either on the assessment lesson in cash or in advance by cheque or bank transfer.  You may cancel any course for a full refund less an administration charge of £25.00 up to

3 working days before the start day of the course but no refunds are possible after that time.
