Intensive Driving Courses in Colchester and Clacton

What Is An Intensive Driving Course?

An intensive driving course in Colchester or Clacton is ideal for someone who wants to obtain a full driving licence in a short amount of time.  It involves you driving daily with the same driving instructor.  Before booking your driving test you will need to pass your theory test.  We use an app called Theory Test Pro to help you practice.  If you want you can book your own theory test and driving test  or we can book them for you.  You will normally have between three to five hours of driving each day.  This might sound like a lot of driving but your instructor will spread the lessons out over each day to avoid lack of concentration due to tiredness.  On the final day of your intensive course, you will take your driving test.

How Many Hours Will I Need?

We offer intensive driving courses ranging from 10 hours to 45 hours depending on your previous experience and ability.   With so many intensive courses to choose from it can be hard to decide on which course suits your particular needs.  

For someone who has never driven a car before or has only limited experience then it would be most likely you would be looking to book a 45 hour intensive driving course.  If you are close to test standard or recently failed a driving test then a 10 hour course would most likely suit you.

It can be hard to decide on which intensive driving course suits your particular needs so your instructors will take you out for a 2 hour assessment in either Colchester or Clacton. 

During the assessment your instructor will be able to guide you towards a course that is perfect for you.

Is An Intensive Driving Course Right For Me?

An intensive driving course doesn’t suit everyone because of the short timescale involved.  Some people may find it overwhelming thinking that in just a few days they will be taking a driving test.

During your 2 hour assessment your instructor will assess your suitability for an intensive driving course.

How many hours will I drive each day?

The hours you drive is up to you.  We would recommend a minimum of 2 hours per day to a maximum of 5 hours per day. 

The course can be completed over a couple of days to around a month for a complete beginner completing 2 hours per day Monday to Friday.
