Frequently Asked Questions, answered.

Below are the most common questions we get asked on a daily basis from our pupils looking to pass their test. If anything is not answered below please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to discuss. 

Can i have my intensive course in an automatic car or do you just provide manual courses?

We have instructors providing courses throughout the UK in both manual and automatic cars. Call us on 0333 355 1421 to speak to one of our helpful staff to double check there are both automatic and manual cars to choose from but generally, we have automatic cars in most areas of the UK.

We have found that some of the benefits in taking intensive driving courses in one of our automatic cars are if you are a nervous drivers who has found that the fear factor of coordinating the clutch, accelerator and gear selection is just too much for you. Also pupils who are later in life find it easier and quicker to learn to drive in an automatic car. These are just a small selection of many reasons you would choose to take automatic lessons as opposed to manual intensive driving courses.

Will My Instructor be Qualified?

All our driving instructors are fully Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) approved and accredited. 

We also carry out DBS checks (formerly CRB) to all of our instructors and they are regularly assessed and vetted to ensure you are receiving the highest quality of tuition at all times. This benefits the pupil and beacuse our instructors provide intensive driving courses they have excellent knowledge and practise in making the most out of your crash driving courses.

Will i share my course/ car with another pupil?

Quite simply the answer is no. All of our intensive driving courses are on a one to one basis ensuring you get the most out of your course.

Do i need to pass my theory test before booking one of your courses?

We would recommend that you have a valid theory test certificate because without that you cannot book your practical driving test, however, if you haven’t passed your theory we can help you with theory test training free of charge and help in booking your theory test and then arrange your course accordingly to suit your requirements.

Do i have the choice of Male or Female instructors for my intensive driving course?

Once confirmed we will ask you for a small deposit to secure your course and then you will start the course with a practical driving test generally at the end of the course.

Do i need my theory test certificate to book my intensive driving course?

In short, the answer is no you do not need to have passed your theory test in order to book your intensive driving course but generally, our intensive driving courses are conducted over a set period of days with the practical test at the end of the course.

In order to book a driving test, you will need to have passed your theory test. When you pass your theory test you will get a unique pass number, this is needed when booking your practical driving test to make sure you have a valid theory test certificate in place at the time of taking your driving test.

Whilst taking an intensive driving course you will be taught the following and during your driving test you will be asked to complete one of the following manoeuvres:

  • Reverse into a bay (sometimes completed in a 3rd party car park)
  • Reverse out of a bay (sometimes completed in a 3rd party car park)
