Is an intensive driving course right for you?
This will depend on how “intensively” you can cope with the driving task.Bearing in mind that even the most experienced drivers need some rest after 2 hours of driving, the best way to know is to have an assessment session.
This will last 2 to 3 hours and will give you a good indication of your attention span’s limit.
Based on this assessment you will be given advice on which course is the most beneficial for you.
Some facts about intensive driving courses Brighton
First of all, intensive driving course does not mean intensive driving lesson. The lesson itself is not intensive and if something is not clear it should never be left behind.
What we are talking about is the pace at which driving lessons are taken.
If, say, you need 4 to 6 hours to successfully handle roundabouts, this time can be “compressed” in 2 to 3 days rather than 2 to 3 weeks if you take a weekly 2 hours lesson.
Some people benefit from this approach because they find it easier to recall information when they are still fresh avoiding memory fade, others need more time for the same info to be understood and assimilated.
A different approach could be having a “mini” intensive at the very beginning of your training to quickly get the hang of the controls followed by a more relaxed training and a “booster” course as you are closer to your driving test.
