Elite INTENSIVE driving courses

 

 

What exactly is an intensive driving course?

Intensive basically means a block of concentrated driving lessons given over a short period of time. These courses are often also referred to as crash courses (no you are not literally going to crash), pass fast and quick pass, but they all amount to the same thing.

 

Intensive driving courses include

  • one driving test, weekdays only.
  • Use of the driving school car on the day of the practical test*
  • Up to 6 hours each day
  • 5, 7, 12 or 15 day courses
  • One theory test included on 5 day theory course

About the Practical Driving test

Elite will book your driving test on your behalf but we are not responsable if the DVSA cancels your driving test. 

We will only book your driving test because it helps to plan your intensive driving course schedule, and of course it saves you the stress of doing it yourself. 

The DVSA can cancel your driving test at any time. For example: if the weather makes it unsafe to test a learner, or if there’s no examiner to take you for the test. 

Your driving test can be cancelled weeks before or just a couple of days before it's due. But it can also be cancelled when you arrive at the driving test centre just 5 minutes before the test.

A learner must accept these conditions when booking an intensive course, because the test is an agreement for services provided by the DVSA and not Elite driving school.

The DVSA are the organisation responsible for testing in the UK.

Please call the office for details on one of the following numbers:

The two part Theory & driving course

This course is ideal for people who want to start driving but haven't passed the theory test. 

The course includes 32 hours of driving tuition, one theory test and one driving test, plus full access to our online theory test training system. 

The course schedule starts with the driving school booking a theory test date and giving you login to our online theory software.

We will allocate your first 20 hours of driver training over a 4 day period. This usually consists of 5 hours training each day with a break for lunch.  

Once the theory test is passed, we will book your second course of driving lessons to conclude with the driving test.

Your remaining driving lessons will be taken as 5 hours each day, over two days with a lunch break of 1 hour to break up the sessions. 

Day three is driving test day, with the remaining 2 hours being used for your driving test.

If your instructor thinks need more than the 32 hours, they will discuss this with you at the end of the first week.  

      

 

What intensive driving course will I need?

This is a common question people ask, but it’s a question that's very difficult to answer without meeting people and assessing their existing driving skills and knowledge.

Not one course fits all because people learn at their own pace and are at different standards when they decide to go the intensive route.

  • New drivers with no previous experience, should expect to take an intensive driving course of 32 hours upwards.
  • Students with a few hours under their belt already, may require 20 hours.
  • Students who have already gained a lot of practice might just require a 10 hour finishing course.

If you are a new driver with no previous experience, then you should consider that the course that you think you want, might fall short on the lessons you really need to get you to the standard required to pass a driving test.

In this case once the course has started the driving instructor will not have any extra space, or the time to get you to standard required before the test date. This might result in the driving test being moved forward to a later date to give you time for additional lessons.

The DVSA (who are the people responsible for driving tests and driving instructors in the UK) expect candidates applying for a driving test to be at the required standard before taking it.  

A driving examiner role is to assess whether candidates can drive well enough to get a full driving licence, it's not their role to help candidates on test, if they have to get involved the result will be a failed driving test.

 

So, where do I start?  

You have 2 options:

1) Take your theory first, because this make it easier to organise your intensive course. We start by booking your driving test & then organising your lessons for the week or weeks leading up to the test date. 

2) Start your intensive course with the theory test first. This is a week course and allows enough time to complete your theory test. As soon as you have passed the theory we can book a driving test and then complete the course.

 

We recommend that learners who have had previous driving experience should take a few assessment lessons before deciding on which course is most suitable. Especially If they haven’t driven for some time, they will need more than just a couple of hours before they can start driving somewhere near to the standard where they left off.

Of course, if students are having driving lessons already and what to go intensive, their instructor will be able to advise on which course is the right fit for them.

 

Our advice is not to be tempted to book an intensive driving course without an assessment lesson because you won’t know the standard you need to reach to pass the driving test.

Even if you think your driving is good, it makes sense to get the opinion of an expert.

 

When can I realistically expect to start an intensive driving course?

This is where good marketing comes in to play. Intensive driving courses are very popular, and marketing companies are setting up web sites to capture people wanting to pass fast.

They advertise learn in a week on an intensive driving course, with a guaranteed test.

But what they don’t make clear is which week the course starts, so the potential customer assumes it’s next week!

But that’s rarely ever the case.

Generally, there’s a waiting time to book a driving test at most of the test centres in the UK.

Over the last 3 years, test demand has increased by over 200,000 tests – with an extra 92,000 last year alone. At the start of the year there were 265 fewer driving examiners than the last time demand was this high. Between April 2008 and March 2009 the DVSA saw demand rise to 1,756,522.  Source DVSA.

Waiting times at test centres can often be 3 months plus in advance, and that can increase if examiners take holiday or take sick leave, because there’s no one to cover their test’s, and so they get cancelled.

Another reason why you can’t just book an intensive driving course for the following week is that many of these internet companies who advertise courses don’t actually have their own driving instructors working for them, they are just middlemen.

So, they advertise intensive driving courses, take your money, and then try to find an instructor who’s short of work to accept the course.

 

 

Driving test centres

Yes, you can get around the test waiting time by taking the driving test in another town/city where the waiting time is shorter.

The problem with taking a driving test in an area you're not familiar with, is you won't know where you are or where you're going, so you’re at a big disadvantage.

Kim Hornshaw

Kim Hornshaw hadn't driven before booking her driving course & passed her driving test at the first attempt...

"Learning to drive with Elite has been a fantastic experience. They provided a great service while doing their best to work around my schedule. Kev was very happy to answer my questions and make the booking and paying process easy and quick. Thank you, Kev.

I was fortunate enough to be instructed by Steve. He is professional, prompt and organised, with plenty of visual aids to help the learning process. A very effective and patient teacher, he also provided encouragement and helped to build much needed confidence. Steve really cares about his students; he pushed me to be the best I could be and we had fun along the way!

I cannot recommend Elite, and Steve, enough! I’m so happy I passed my test first time.

Thank you, Elite & Thank you so much, Steve”

Practical Driving test

Please read this important information about booking an intensive course with a driving test. 

If you want to book an intensive driving course to finish with a driving test, the DVSA who are the organisation responsible for testing in the UK requires that candidates must pass the theory test before they are able to book their driving test.

Driving tests can only be booked providing the organisation (booking on the behalf of someone) or individual who is booking a test, has a valid UK provisional driving licence with a theory pass registered to it, and it is in the candidates name.

If you haven't passed the theory but want to start learning on an intensive driving course, then I would recommend taking the 5 day theory course to get you started, then once you have passed the theory test we can then book a driving test with the DVSA and finish the course. Please call the office for details on one of the following numbers:

From Hull 01482 772301

From York 01904 819781

From all other locations 03332 004130
