The intensive driving course is designed to achieve a good level of driving (mostly in preparation for a test) within a short period of time. This could be anything from two hours per day to six hours per day. Anything more than two hours per day would usually be split up into manageable units and breaks to allow for some rest:
3 hours = 1.5 + 1.5 hours (with 15 minutes break)
4 hours = 2 + 2 hours (with 30 minutes break)
6 hours can either be arranged as 1.5 + 1.5 and again 1.5 + 1.5 (15 minute break between each pair and a 30 minute break in the middle) or 2 + 2 + 2hours with 2 x 30 minute breaks.
An intensive course is ideal for someone who wants to get away from their busy schedule and purely focus on driving. It could also be ideal for someone who lives in a remote area, which does not provide enough traffic variety, or the other way round, who lives in a major city where traffic can be too aggressive and overwhelming.
Accommodation is optional and can be provided on a Bed and Breakfast basis in selected establishments from as little as £30/night. Bespoke accommodation can be arranged at your request.
Intensive driving training will be finished at a reasonable time each day, which gives you plenty of relaxing time to reflect on your learning. You can also enjoy the local activities ranging from calming walks along the coastal paths to the more adventurous watersports available along the Bournemouth and Poole coast. Your instructor will be happy to finish your last lesson at a location you wish to explore (within reasonable distance).
