Intensive Driving Courses

Why wait months to pass your driving test when you can have it all done and out of the way by next week?

Learning to drive will give you freedom to do what you want, when you want and being able to drive also opens up new job opportunities so it sometimes makes sense to get your new freedom and new jobs prospects now instead of 8-10 months down the road.

Our Intensive driving courses have been designed to deliver great results and get you on the road with the least time and hassle. For complete novices we offer you the choice of 36 or 42 hour driving courses where you can complete all your driver training in just one or two week's over 6-7 days with a driving test on your final day. We also have tailored driving courses for customers with different levels of driving experience so there is a intensive driving course to suit everyone. Why wait months for something that you can have next week, you know it makes sense.

Automatic Driving Lessons

Automatic driving lessons can be an easier way to learn to drive for anyone who struggles with changing gear, who finds driving a very complex task (even after a fair few lessons, when for most of us the whole clutch-gear-biting point thing has switched to autopilot mode)

We have male and female automatic driving instructors providing both weekly driving lessons and Automatic Intensive driving courses here in Shaftesbury and the surrounding areas. 

Driving an automatic car has definite benefits over manual cars. The car changes gear for you at the appropriate time, so you’ll rarely over-rev an automatic car plus there is no clutch so you dont need to find the bite and you cant roll backwards. Although your fuel consumption may be slightly less economical than a manual car, overall it can make a worthwhile difference in the level of effort required when driving on longer journeys.

When dealing with the very busy streets and heavy traffic, driving an Automatic car can make driving a lot less stressful as all you need to do is control the brake and the accelerator (remember no clutch) which give you so much more time to think about the road and other road users and not thinking about your clutch and gears. We often find this can also lead to you needing less overall driving lessons as you will pick up driving a lot quicker which can save you both time and money.
