If you already have driving experience, then you may not need a full course of intensive lessons therefore, please contact us to discuss a driving assessment to determine how many hours you will you actually need!
** Please Note. Pricing of intensive courses includes use of the car on test if it falls within the number of hours pre paid and pre-booked, otherwise the charge will simply be at the same hourly preferential rates . It does not however, include DSA Theory or Practical Test fees. These fees are additional but, we can arrange these for you if required, at current fee costs only.

They must expect to recover their losses in some other way! Again they must be absolutely desperate for work to offer such ridiculously low prices! Think carefully before you book lessons with such instructors! An established instructor cannot offer these prices and give good value!† The only way that they can offer such prices is by parking the vehicle up and 'talking' for most of the lesson!
Beware of larger regional or national driving schools which regularly use the services of trainee instructors while still charging full prices! A fully qualified instructor will and must display, on the windscreen, a green† 'badge' which contains his/her photograph etc: A trainee will display a pink triangular badge.
Before embarking upon an intensive course however, please read carefully, the information shown below! I do not recommend lessons longer than 2.5/3.00 hours per day as concentration begins to waver after this period!. If the student has a 'bad day' (which is not uncommon!), then they have only lost one lesson.
CSM †Intensive tuition
I offer an intensive tuition service to customers who are 'suitable' for intensive tuition! 'Suitable' means those students who are able to cope with the extra associated stresses, and, learn over a short period. (from 2 to 6 weeks).
Unfortunately, there are some prospective customers who are just not suited
to intensive tuition; this would just waste their money and time as, they
would have no chance of passing their driving test by learning over a short
For this reason and , unlike some nationally & locally advertised residential/driving courses, I will NOT take on† anyone for an intensive course until I have fully 'assessed' them and their ability and aptitude. It is analagous to choosing wallpaper or a new dress over the telephone... impossible without seeing first! I would strongly advise anyone seeking intensive tuition, to avoid those† businesses which will take a student on for intensive training with a driving test at the end, without an assessment first! There are several horror stories I could relate about these practices! Without first seeing someone and assessing their ability, it is virtually impossible to tell how many lessons a person will need to reach the required standard to pass a practical driving test! Promises won't get one to pass a test!
So, how many lessons? (both regular and intensive tuition )
everyone is different but from experience,
the average driver will take
between 16 and 32 hours of tuition
(depending upon previous driving tuiton/experience)
to reach the required standards!! However, there some students who take
many more lessons...there is nothing wrong with them; they may extremely
nervous, have no aptitude toward driving or in some cases, have learning
difficulties! In these cases, patience is necessary but usually they will
be successful if they persevere.
NOT mind how difficult a student is to teach as long as they accept their
shortcomings! I'll do my utmost to find the best way to teach them!
Everyone has a friend who only had '5' lessons and then passed their test! They never tell how many hours practice they had in a private car!!! Probably hundreds!
is learn to drive over a modest period, say 3 to 8 weeks! That way, you
learn quickly but not too stressfully!
Pass Plus is a block of lessons taken after passing the test (the many
benefits explained later in this page!). The minimum number of lessons to
complete this short course is 6 hours...the
total cost being £105.00 for the 6 hours tuition.
The Driving Standards Agency together with some scheme registered instructors operate a 'Pass Plus' scheme, which is† a short course of lessons (not less than 6 hours tuition) taken after passing your driving test! It covers city, country, night, motorway/dual carriageway driving and bad weather training, giving you a greater awareness and better assessment of road and traffic conditions!
