Intensive Driving Courses in Colchester and Clacton.
The intensive driving course is sometimes known as a crash course. It's certainly ideal for someone who wants to obtain a full driving licence quickly. You will probably want to learn from one week upwards depending on the intensive course you choose and your availability e.g. collage/work commitments. You can take as many hours of tuition per day/week as you feel comfortable with, however we don't recommend more than 5 hours per day. With this in mind, your intensive driving course will be catered to your individual needs.
We offer various intensive courses in Colchester and Clacton depending on your previous experience and ability. It can be hard to decide which intensive course suits your particular needs so as a result of this your driving instructor will take you out for a 2 hour assessment. The assessment will take place in either Colchester or Clacton. During this assessment your driving instructor will be able to advise you on the hours required for you to reach test standard. The instructor will also let you know if an intensive driving course is suitable for you.

Some recent passes and reviews.
I had Mandy as my instructor and she was absolutely amazing! Whilst I suffered with anxiety and a fear on on-coming traffic but she soon turned me into a confident 'natural' driver. She has endless patience and is a really nice friendly lady and as a result soon put even the most nervous learner at ease and build up their confidence and driving skills. As a result I passed and recommend her and DVDS highly enough! 5 star driving school, 5 star instructor.
Really enjoyed learning to drive with Hayley and DVDs. Hayley was very calming and helped me overcome my nerves and we had fun at the same time! Great instructor who’s helped me become a safe and confident driver.
Just passed first time with Simon from DVDS and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend the school (especially my instructor Simon) to anyone who wants to learn, I always felt comfortable because I felt like I was constantly learning different tricks even on the day of my test I was learning. I wouldn't have had my learning experience any other way, if I go back to the beginning and choose again I would definitely choose DVDS.
