              Note: The sheer intensity of 4 hours of daily driving can be exhaustive!

              What If You’re Undecided?

              Caught between choices, such as the 5-day and 7-day courses? Considering the benefits, lean towards the longer course. Even though it might cost more, having more on-road time undeniably boosts confidence. This advantage is invaluable not only for your test but also for solo driving adventures later on.

              Moreover, it’s important to note that all our courses include the car hire for the driving test. Notably, the test lasts about 40-minutes. Consequently, any extra hours needed post-course will be settled directly with your professional driving instructor.

              Is an Intensive Driving Course Not for You?

              Navigating the options, not everyone’s cut out for crash driving courses. Perhaps you need more time to understand driving concepts? Alternatively, do you find it taxing to be in a car for 4 hours daily? In that case, a more traditional, extended course might suit you better. After all, the imminent nature of a rapid test can indeed add pressure. Ultimately, our goal is for you to pass your driving test swiftly without added stress!
