I’ve been doing Intensive driving lessons in Birmingham since 2006. They’re also known as crash courses but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you’re going to crash.
My fast pass intensive driving courses are no different in quality to my weekly courses. I don’t cut corners and I don’t just teach you how to pass a driving test.
My December Christmas crash courses are now available for 2018. Visit my Christmas crash course page and get driving by Christmas!
How intensive driving lessons in Birmingham work
The word “intensive” means different things to different people but I class intensive driving lessons as taking more than one lesson (two hours) per week.
If you took a two hour lesson on each Monday and Wednesday then you could be at test standard in as little as 10 weeks (4 hours per week x 10 weeks = 40 hours). If you wanted to do a lesson each Monday, Wednesday and Friday then you’d be ready in around 6 weeks as taking lessons more regularly means you might forget less between lessons so could need less hours in total.
I think this is a great way of learning to drive. I won’t do lessons that are longer than 2 hours. It’s very tiring to both learn and teach driving, when you start learning and you’ll see that 2 hours a time is enough. Any more is exhausting and can end up doing you more harm than good.
Nothing is missed out on my intensive courses in Birmingham. They are just as detailed and thorough as my weekly driving lessons.
No deposit to pay before we meet
There’s no need to risk paying ahead before you have even met me. In fact I won’t take any payment off anyone until I’ve met them. Come and meet me first, talk to me, see if you like my school and discuss your course. There’s no hard sell in the car; I’ll email you a possible course after the first lesson for you to think about.
Can you pass in 5 days?
Learning how to pass a driving test is one thing. Learning to drive safely is another.
You can pass a driving test without ever going over 30 mph, not driving on any large roundabouts or having to parallel park. The real driving test begins once you start driving alone after passing. Make a mistake then and it’s more than an examiners mark on a piece of paper you’ll have to worry about.
What are you going to do if you get to a large roundabout with 5 lanes and you don’t know what to do because your instructor missed that out knowing it wouldn’t come up on a test? What about when you’re on a high street and need to park but you can’t because you skipped over that bit because there wasn’t time?
I do not do “pass in 5 days” courses because I consider them to be dangerous and you will not learn how to drive properly. Some schools doing these will only teach you the test routes and all the tricks to make it look as though you know what you are doing.
I’ve taught many people in Birmingham how to drive over the course of 2 to 3 weeks and just having that extra bit of time makes all the difference.
Take a 5 day course and you could end up as bad at driving as the driver in this video! See more videos like this on my YouTube channel
Why choose me for an intensive driving course in Birmingham?
I live in Birmingham, grew up here and have been doing intensive driving courses in Birmingham since 2006.
There are many companies offering intensive courses who are really just agencies. The school you apply to doesn’t exist and they just contract out work to instructors and charge them an introduction fee. There are also many instructors that aren’t used to doing intensive courses and just don’t structure their lessons correctly.
I’ve taught hundreds of intensive driving courses in Birmingham since 2006, so many I’ve lost count. I know the driving test centres, examiners, all the test routes and how to do an intensive course safely as well as quickly.
Theory and driving test information
You can start an intensive course with me without having your theory test passed but we won’t be able to book a practical driving test until you have passed the theory test.
The waiting time for driving tests can vary. I update this page frequently and in 2018 you can get tests in Birmingham as little as a week away thanks to extra driving test centres and examiners.
Prices for intensive driving lessons in Birmingham
Intensive courses are charge at the same prices as usual weekly lessons. The only difference between my intensive lessons and weekly lessons is the length of time it takes to complete the course.
To book an intensive course I need a 50% deposit after your first lesson and the other 50% when the course begins. Once you have paid the deposit then I can reserve the times you want, until then they remain open for other people to book.
What to do next
If you are interested in intensive driving lessons in Birmingham with me then I recommend getting your theory test done or at least booked in.
