Suitable for pick up.
The choice is yours! We will pick you up and drop you off free of charge at your hotel accommodation or if you are within reasonable commuting distance we can arrange your timetable to start later in the day to give you more travelling time and meet you at Dundee Bus or Railway Station or a mutually acceptable location.(top)
For your convenience we work 7 days including public holidays and will always try to arrange your timetable at the times that suit you best. Make sure you tell us of any dates and times you will not be able to attend as it can be difficult to make changes to your timetable at a later date.(top)
You can do Weekly Lessons and Block Bookings but Intensive Courses all have a Practical Test after the last lesson so we can't book one for you until you have passed your Theory Test.
No one in the UK can book a Practical Driving Test until they pass the Theory Test so because of this rule we are unable to book an intensive driving course for you until you have passed as all our intensive courses have a Practical Test after the last lesson.
It is advisable to start taking pre course weekly lessons until you have passed the Theory Test as the extra practice could result in you requiring a shorter intensive course and will give your instructor time to assess your progress and rate of learning and so will be able to advise you on the intensive course best suited to your ability.
Documents you will require:
- Your Provisional Licence
- Your Theory Test Certificate
- A Credit or Debit card (top)
Beware of courses offering shared tuition as you will only be behind the wheel for HALF the number of hours advertised and the other HALF watching someone else so you are effectively paying DOUBLE the price. In other words you are not only paying for your time behind the wheel but also for someone else's time when you are NOT behind the wheel.
It is claimed you will learn more sitting in the back seat so why do we not all sit in the back and watch the driver?? By the time we get to the end of the journey we should all be good drivers - yes!! What rubbish!!
It is no small wonder that the driving schools using this method of teaching can offer so many "freebies" such as "free" tuition if you fail, payment towards your transport costs, "free" test if you fail, "free" accommodation, "guarantee" this and that and so the list goes on.
Make no mistake,these offers are NOT FREE! It's all included in the inflated course price and the whole idea is not for your benefit! It is a means of attracting customers and deluding you into thinking you are getting something for nothing and you are guaranteed to pass your test first time. Fat chance, no one on this planet can guarantee you will pass your test. They must think you're lacking intelligence to believe that.
There is no substitute for 1 to 1 "hands on" experience and the bottom line is.... the only way you will pass your test is by taking a course that matches your ability and have the undivided attention of you own qualified instructor. With 1 to 1 tuition you are the only one behind the wheel and you will not have to share the time you have paid for with someone else which is not only extremely beneficial but value for money. There are lots of examples too numerous to mention of people requiring their own private tutor and driving instruction is no exception.
Do not be taken in by the smooth talk of any establishments offering SHARED TUITION or GUARANTEED PASS!
Learning to drive is a skill for life and the safest and most beneficial way to learn is on a 1 to 1 basis with your own qualified instructor who will be dedicated to teaching you and you alone. (top)
When you are trying to decide on which intensive course to take please consider the more tuition you receive the more competent you will become.
A good starting point is to take a 1 or 2 hour trial assessment lesson and your instructor will advise you on the best length of intensive course to match your ability. We always try to advise on the minimum number of hours required to reach the required safety standard but this is not an exact science and a few extra hours can only improve your chances of passing your test first time.
If you are unfortunately unable to take a trial assessment lesson it is very important you select an intensive course of suitable length which matches your skill level and competence as a driver and is always better to overestimate the number of hours you think you will require rather than find out too late you have underestimated.(top)
Driving ability varies considerably from person to person so the guide below should only be regarded as approximate.Our 1 day special intensive driving course consists of three hours in the morning with lesson four in the afternoon immediately followed by the Practical Driving Test and is only suitable for someone who has considerable experience ie banned drivers ordered by the court to re-sit the normal or extended driving test (requires extra hour). This intensive driving course is only available after a trial assessment lesson. How to get your licence back after being disqualified.
- Our 3 and 4 day intensive driving courses are mainly for someone who has good driving skills and is almost up to test standard or has recently failed a test on a small number of minor faults. To be successful with one of these short courses your standard of driving has to be high with regard to mechanical skills and co ordination. For either of these short intensive courses you are advised to book a trial assessment lesson.
- A 5 or 6 day intensive driving course is suitable for someone who has completed the syllabus but the driving standard is inconsistant with verbal and occasional physical assistance being required. Still requires practice and supervision to reach the required standard.
- A 7 or 8 day intensive driving course is suitable for a beginner with some road experience and is starting to gain some confidence. Still requires full supervision and instruction in all elements of the syllabus. Both these intensive courses are suitable if continous progress with confidence can be maintained.
- The 9 and 10 day intensive driving courses are for the beginner with little or no experience. Has still to gain some confidence and understanding of basic car control. Mechanical skills are under developed or non existant. For maximum road experience and mileage the 10 day intensive course is to be recommended.(top)
If you are considering an intensive course and are unsure of the length of course you will require we would recommend you book a 1 or 2 hour trial assessment lesson first and you will receive professional advice and guidance on the length of course applicable to your ability. This will not guarantee you will pass but will ensure you are close to your requirements and you have the option to add a further day if you wish just to make sure. If it is not possible to take a trial lesson the guidance above will help you decide which group you are in. Purchase trial lesson
