Frequently Asked Questions
We specialize in intensive driving courses & we have been organising these courses for years.We provide results on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Passindays
For detailed guidance on what is required to learn how to drive please visit DVSA website.
On the first day your driving instructor will need to see:
* your provisional driving licence
* a print out of your driver record, this can be done here
* We recommend taking a bottle of still water with you (each day).
Once you book a course you will get free access to an online self study theory course to help you prepare for your theory test. Simply:
* Claim your free theory course (instructions in the e-mail after booking)
* Start practicing online
* Book your theory test (ideally so that you can sit it before your course)
The theory test is only £23 and online booking is very easy, this is why we don’t charge you for it and allow you to book it yourself (that way you can pick the date and time that is most suitable for you). Instructions on how to book it are e-mailed with the course booking confirmation. Driving test is included in the course price and we book it for you.
You can place your booking using our booking calendar. Once your booking is placed you will receive a e-mail confirmation with further instructions.
During your course
Most of the times your lessons will take place in the mornings but it can be a mix of morning/afternoon sessions. You need to allow for about 5 hrs a day. 4 hrs with your instructor plus some home study (video driving lessons). There is also an option to pick a course on “evening & weekends” basis, please ask for details.
Yes, there will be a break about half way through your session. Your instructor will take you to a place where you can get a drink, use toilets etc. Typically local superstore (tesco, asda). If you find the course to difficult your instructor will adjust the course schedule to your learning progress, so that you can learn as much as possible, at a pace that is comfortable.
Typically you would start your course in a quiet place just to get used to the car, starting with basic subjects such as moving off and stopping, junctions etc. Once you feel more comfortable and master the basics we can introduce more challenging subjects such as roundabouts, crossroads, dual carriageways & other. Last day of your course is usually a mock test finished with a debrief & some work on your faults. If you are not test ready you can then organise more training on pay as you go basis with your instructor or private practice.

After the course
Most of the candidates sit their driving test either on the last day of their course or on the week following their course. In busy times, it might take longer than that.
We usually carry out a mock test towards the end of your course.. If you are not ready for your practical driving test then you can arrange additional training with your instructor on pay as you go basis or we can cancell your test & offer a driving test fee refund (you must request this no later than 5 working days before the driving test date).
You will need to re-book your driving test (£62) and organise more lessons (if needed) on pay as you go basis with your instructor.
You will receive a pass certificate from your examiner & your examiner will normally arrange for your provisional licence photocard to be sent off to the DVSA, where it will be upgraded to a full driving licence. Your new – full licence will be sent to you through the post.
If you need to make changes to your licence – such as address or photo – before having it updated, you will need to apply for a full licence yourself. Make sure you do this within the timelines given as if you leave it to late, you might have to sit your driving test again.
