Intensive courses (or crash courses as they are sometimes known) should usually be taken between 1-4 weeks; this will depend on how quickly you would like to take your test & the amount of time that you have available. The amount of training required varies from person to person. The average course for a complete beginner can take anywhere between 25 to 40 hours. If you’ve had previous experience behind the wheel this should significantly reduce the number of hours needed. The best way to determine how many hours tuition are needed is to take a 1 hour assessment lesson.
Example of 1 week course (based on 25 hours)You would normally take 2.5 hours in the morning, a 1.5 hour break followed by another 2.5 hours in the afternoon over 5 days with your test at the end. This can be very demanding as you have to free up a lot of your time & energy, but the benefits are that you are less likely to forget what you’ve learned in this short space of time as opposed to weekly lessons.
If you don’t have that amount of time to spare why not try 1.5 or 2 hour lessons daily Monday to Friday over a few weeks (the number of weeks will depend on how much training is required) with your test at the end. This is a lot less demanding but is still very effective.
These courses are flexible and can be designed to fit around your work commitments.
