What is an Intensive Course?

An intensive driving course is the quickest way to complete your driver training to gain your full driving licence. Bristol Intensive courses are usually five hours long and taken on consecutive days with the practical test on the final day, however, we can customize the courses for your specific requirements, tailoring your driving lessons to meet your personal circumstances. If the listed courses are not suitable, please contact us to discuss further.

We will always arrange pickup and drop off from your home or, by prior arrangement and agreement from the instructor, we can pick up and drop off in other locations. 
The course will always be on a 1-2-1 basis with a fully qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor. It will also include the practical driving test, unless it is not required.

We have a wide range of courses to suit all learners, please click here to view them.
