Intensive Driving Lessons - Do They Work? by:Rob Laird - RPL Driving
With time being important to everyone, more and more driving schools are offering intensive driving lessons for learner drivers, some of them spread over just one week.
Unfortunately, they don't suit everyone. The skills needed to drive safely take time to learn, and although you may learn enough to pass the driving test, I've found that the quicker you learn, the quicker you forget things.
If you have had previous experience on other vehicles, or other driving lessons before, intensive lessons can be useful. As you're not starting from scratch things will be a little easier.
If you have had no experience, the best way to learn quickly would be to have 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. On that time scale, you might expect to be ready for your test after 4-5 weeks. But like most things, it depends on the person.
If you have had experience before, the amount of lessons, and therefore the time it will take will vary a lot. The best course of action would be to book an assessment driving lesson with a driving instructor, who should be able to give you a better idea of what you will need.
If you would like any more information on driving lessons, either have a look at my driving school website, or contact me, and I'll do my best to help you.
