The cost of an intensive driving course will depend on how many hours you need. We offer various courses for complete beginners or for competent drivers, we strongly believe intensive courses are a much cheaper (as well as quicker way) to learn to drive here’s our thoughts…
As hourly lessons can be around £25 – £30 per hour learning to drive can be very costly especially as the DVSA reckons pupils need well over 40 hours plus private practice. Based on say 47 hourly lessons at say average £25ph this would be £1175 on top of this would be the test fees. So how can learners keep this cost down?
An intensive driving course for a beginner can be covered in our 7 day course, the price of this including hotel, B&B, test fees and FREE tuition if you do not pass is just £1140 and can be done in JUST 7 DAYS instead of months of hourly lessons.
Intensive courses can work out cheaper than hourly lessons
Traditional lessons typically involve driving for only one or two hours per week. Often picking up from home or work which means routes can be limited and driving also could be in peak traffic times. As you can imagine, this means lots of time spent on the same route, wasted time on debrief, recapping, discussing lesson plan and just generally settling in to your lesson. Lessons at busy times could mean some of it wasted just sitting in traffic.
An intensive course, meanwhile, concentrates your learning into a shorter period of time. This means you can focus on learning new skills, improve and progress your driving throughout the day, covering new routes, varying traffic and increasing your confidence quickly.
So an intensive driving course is worth it but how many hours will I need?
This question is so difficult to answer because it really depends on a number of factors, including age, previous experience and confidence. All pupils learn at different rates and young confident drivers tend to learn quicker. Based on years of experience we can usually give a suggestion of a suitable course after having a quick chat with you. Our courses can be tailor made and adapted to suit your needs, for example if you have had a few lessons already you might not require a full beginner course of 7 days so we can arrange a course over 5 or 6 days instead. As a very rough guideline for a beginner we would suggest you have had at least 35 hours behind the wheel in total in order to be near test standard. If you have had say 20 hours already we would be suggesting either a 4 day one to one course or 5 day shared course.
