What’s Involved In An Intensive Driving Course

Intensive Driving Courses are ideal for students who want to pass their driving test in just one to two weeks, with lessons lasting 2-5 hours each day, rather than spending months or years learning.

Below are some pointers to help you determine which driving course is best for you.

The quick answer is YES, however it all depends on you and finding the correct driving instructor who specialises in executing them.


They are not the right choice for everyone, but if you are short on time or money, this is by far the finest option to learn to drive. It is appropriate for persons who wish to pass their driving test in just one to two weeks with 2-5 hours of sessions per day and would not want to spend months or years learning.

How Do Intensive Driving Courses Work?

You must have passed your theory test before beginning your intensive driving course because it is not possible to book a practical driving test with the DVLA without it.

There are also waiting times for practical test dates that change day by day, minute by minute; with the intensive course, it is best to wait until you have a practical road test booked in place and then start to work backwards from the test date to accommodate your lessons in.

If you are doing a semi-intensive course, you can begin your classes much earlier if you are not concerned about completing your course in a matter of weeks, and we can assist you in passing your theory test with our vast choice of free study material on this site.

Depending on wait times on the government’s booking system, your practical driving exam will normally be scheduled for the last day of your training.

We Want You To Pass Your Test First Time

You will have the same driving teacher throughout your driving course and will learn one-on-one with no other students in the car. Here at Alfie’s driving school, we understand how important it is to pass your test the first time if possible. Therefore, we will do everything can to make it happen.

Of course, you can never plan for nerves or what happens on the day of your test, however, we will have you prepped and as ready as you can be. 

How Long Does Intensive Driving Take?

Depending on which course you pick, the courses can be completed in as little as one week, and your driving teacher will try to accommodate your schedule as much as possible. If the instructor is available, the maximum number of hours that can be completed per day is five. It is always better to schedule your lessons once you know when your practical driving test is and then work backwards from that date to meet your schedule.

However, because the course is taught on a case-by-case basis, it truly depends on the individual.
