Why do intensive driving courses work so well?
Learning to drive taking only one or two hours of tuition per week will not generally be enough practice time for most learner drivers to make real progress.
On average, students learning by hourly tuition will take up to 14 months to achieve the driving test standard. Preparing for your Driving Test
Will an intensive driving course be right for me?
For most people the answer is, 'yes'. At the end of your first day you will be tired, due to taking in so much new information, but as each day unfolds you will find that you will feel more lively and everything becomes easier. Remember that Intensive Courses are proven to be the fastest way for learner drivers of all ages when learning to drive and are now commonplace in the UK. Police drivers, the Armed Forces, LGV drivers, Bus drivers and even Driving Examiners are likely have been trained in this way.
Which intensive course should I take?
Learning with an intensive driving course means that your training will be over a few days not many months.
Everything you learn will stay fresh in your mind, encouraging a new confidence in your driving to grow, and because the driving test is taken with your course it is possible for you to learn to drive and pass the practical UK driving test in 7 days or less.
It's no wonder more learners are turning to intensive driving courses when learning to drive than ever before. Types of courses
With drivingcourseslondon there is a wide choice in available courses.We can assist you to decide on the course best suited to your experience and requirements. drivingcourseslondon courses are structured for all types of students, from those who have failed driving tests to candidates who are complete beginners.
Where will I take my intensive course?
Our head office is based in London, Wiltshire. Your course starting point will normally be from London when taking your course in London, otherwise your course can be taken at one of our two other centres: Newbury or Chippenham.
What about the driving test?
Driving tests are an important part of your intensive course. Providing you have passed your theory test when you book your course the driving test can be arranged for the final hour.
Because it is important to be familiar with the area where the driving test is to be taken, we arrange for the driving test to be undertaken in the same area that your training was provided.
Have you passed your theory test?
Although it is possible to undertake an intensive course before passing your theory test, you cannot take the practical driving test unless you have successfully passed the driving theory test. We therefore strongly advise that pupils take and gain their theory test pass certificate as soon as possible.

6 Hours - One to One tuition
For many reasons, some drivers pass their test and then find they don't drive very much - or at all - for lengthy periods of time. Similarly, if you experience bad health or an extended period of living abroad, it's possible that you may not feel as confident when you get back behind the wheel in this country.
Other drivers successfully pass their tests but still feel a little unsure about some aspects of driving or feel they need to practice certain elements further.
If this applies in your case then our Refresher Courses are ideal for you. Your instructor will tailor the course according to your individual needs and can assist you with any area of concern you may have with your driving. This will help you become a more confident and safer driver and can dramatically increase your overall enjoyment of driving.
6 Hours - One to One tuition
It's great news when you have passed your driving test, but the driving test should not be viewed as the end of your learning but only as the end of that section.
Newly qualified drivers, particularly those in the 17 to 21 age range are the most vulnerable drivers and are more likely to be involved in incidents that lead to accidents.
Pass Plus helps to round off the new driver so they are attuned to the particular skills they may not have covered when learning for their driving test. Pass Plus is a great way for newly qualified drivers to gain extra experience that will be used on today's busy roads.
Most major insurance companies support the Pass Plus course. Many offer discounts of 30% on the first insurance policy taken out by the newly qualified driver. Savings well in excess of £600 are regularly made when insuring after taking the Pass Plus course
The Pass Plus course is a one day 6 hour course and may be taken on a day to suit the student. The start times may vary and flexibility on times is offered to all students. Call us today to discuss your requirements or to book a course.
