X Assessment Lesson

As we have already said the 1.5 hour assessment lesson is so important.

First of all it will give you confidence in the ability and personality of your instructor - After all you will be sat next to him/her for about 4 hours each day

You will need to feel you have chosen the right person!

There are 2 types of new student to us -

  • Those that have never driven
  • Those that have some experience
  • If you have never driven you may be looking at 35 to 40 hours which can be done in as little as 8 to 10 days.

    However, lots of people have already gained some experience and may only need as little as 10 hours.

    Whatever your standard is you'll do lots of driving so we can get the clearest picture of which course will be best for you

    Call or text us today on 07860 600938 and we may be able to get the assessment lesson done withing a few days from now.

    Pass Rates

    A We have been doing both intensive driving courses and regular week after week courses for more than 20 years. The pass rate is always about 10% better with intensive courses - Providing you don't do more than 5 hours per day (like some companies.)

    X Pass Rates

    Pass rates are personal to you the pupil - If you are good enough you'll pass and if you are not up to standard you will fail

    Having worked in the industry for 20+ years I've never been convinced any single instructor gives accurate pass rates. There's no way of checking.

    The best we can do for you is give a link to a government site which shows pass rates per test centre etc. And hey, as it's an outside website the government are prone to changing the link - Please let us know if this does not work Click Here

    For your information we can honestly say there are no 'quotas' to fulfill, No extra fails on a Friday afternoon or Monday morning. Your task is simply to be good enough to pass - We can help

    Intensive Driving Courses

    B To do an intensive driving course you'll need both parts of your driving licence, you'll need to pass your theory test sooner rather than later (we can help with this) You'll need to do our 1.5 hour assessment lesson and an idea of when you want to do the course.

    What do I need? - You need to pass your test!

  • You need both parts of your valid provisional driving licence - It takes about 3 weeks to get one from the DVLA

  • You need to pass your driving theory test - It takes about 10 hours of study and 2 weeks to get a date from DSA

  • You need just £30 to pay for your assessment lesson and then you need to call us.

    We can make a start with the assessment lesson and planning when you want to do your crash course before you have passed your theory, but we cannot book a driving test or start your intensive driving course until you have done this.
