Intensive driving Courses in Colchester and Clacton

What is an intensive driving course?

An intensive driving course in Colchester or Clacton is ideal for someone who wants to obtain a full driving licence in a short amount of time.  It involves you driving on a daily basis with the same driving instructor.  You will normally have between three to five hours of driving each day.  This might sound like a lot of driving but your instructor will spread the lessons out over each day to avoid lack of concentration due to tiredness.  On the final day of your intensive course you will take your driving test.

How many hours do I need?

We offer intensive driving courses ranging from 10 hours to 45 hours depending on your previous experience and ability.  For someone who has never driven a car before or has only limited experience then it would be most likely you would be looking to book a 45 hour intensive driving course.  If you are close to test standard or recently failed a driving test then a 10 hour course would most likely suit you.

It can be hard to decide on which intensive driving course suits your particular needs so your instructors will take you out for a 2 hour assessment in either Colchester or Clacton.

Is an intensive driving course right for me?

An intensive driving course doesn’t suit everyone because of the short timescale involved.  Some people may find it overwhelming thinking that in just a few days they will be taking a driving test.  For this reason, your instructor will take you out for a two hour assessment in either Colchester or Clacton.  During the assessment the driving instructor will advise you on the number of hours you will need to reach test standard and also your suitability for an intensive driving course.

Please note the courses and recommendations are a guide, the DVSA recommend 45 hours of driving tuition with a professional instructor and another 20 hours of private tuition with friends or family to reach test standard. We have found this to be accurate with the exception of a few pupils who have needed less lessons to reach test standard.
