Intensive driving courses

 

 

What exactly is an intensive driving course?

They are concentrated lessons given over a short period of time and often (but not always) finish with a driving test. 

These courses are also referred to as crash courses (strange term), pass fast course and quick pass, but they all amount to the same thing.

 

What intensive driving course is right for you?

This is a common question people ask when they call to inquire, but it’s a question that cannot be answered without meeting people and assessing their existing abilities.

Not one course fits all because people 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 plus. And students who have already gained a lot of practice might just need 10 hours.

When talking about previous experience, that also depends on where you practiced, with who you practiced, and when was the last time you drove.

For example, some students might have had 10 lessons 20 years ago and never driven since.

They might have practiced with family, friends on a scrap of land and never got out of first gear.

There are so many possibilities, which makes it impractical to advise on which course would be best until we have assessed their existing knowledge and skills.

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 need to get you to the standard required to pass a driving test.

If you book a course with too few hours, once the course has started the driving instructor will not have any extra space, or the time to get you to standard before the test date resulting in the driving test being cancelled.

Even if you want to take the test for experience, your instructor won’t allow it if their opinion you could damage their car or put people at risk including yourselves and the examiner.

Also, the DVSA (who are the people responsible for driving tests and driving instructors in the UK) will not be impressed with an instructor who allows a student to take a driving test when clearly, they are not at the required standard.

It’s not showing a proper sense of responsibility!

 

So, where do you start?  

Do your theory first. Before you can book a driving test you must have a valid theory pass certificate, otherwise planning course dates isn't practical.

So, the logical first step for a new driver is to take a few lessons to grasp the basics and allow the instructor time to get an idea of your capability to learn on an intensive course.

For learners with previous driving experience they should take a few assessment lessons.

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 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.

Don’t 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.

 

Intensive driving course and driving tests!  

When can you 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.

Alternatively, you’ll be offered a split course. This is where you’ll start your week intensive driving course, and then wait a further few months for a test date before going back to take a few more days training.

 

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.

 

How many hours should you do each lessson?

This differs from person to person, and also depends on how advanced you are with your lessons.

Some intensive driving courses will have you in the driving seat for 7 hours a day. For example, a 35 hour course spread over 5 days.

Many experienced drivers would cringe at the thought of driving for seven hours in a day, even though they will have little to think about because they drive from memory. 

Most learners will find this just too much to handle, and at the end of the first day may give up because they cannot face another 7 hour day behind the wheel.  

Drivers in the early stage of learning might struggle to concentrate for more than a few hours before they become exhausted.

Learners with good experience can focus for up to three hours but beyond that you are asking a lot from them.

Following those guidelines, and new driver taking a 35-hour driving course will need 3 weeks to complete based on a 5 day a week.

A more experienced driver taking a 15-hour driving course would only need a week to complete the course.
