Residential Intensive Driving Courses

Learning to drive can take months of lessons, spread out at a pace of one hour`s instruction per week. Many learner drivers do not get the opportunity to practice their new driving skills between lessons and so the process of improving their driving ability is a slow and laborious one. Building confidence is an important part of the learning process when taking driving lessons, and this is difficult to achieve with only one hourly lesson each week. Intensive driving courses, on the other hand, give the learner driver the opportunity to learn from scratch in a matter of days. However, intensive driving courses are not as readily available as ordinary driving courses and so there has been a growth in residential intensive driving courses recently. These courses provide accommodation for the duration of the course, usually around 5 or 6 days, in bed and breakfast, youth hostels or reasonably priced local hotels. These residences provide the opportunity for like minded people to! network with each other, and to help each other with their driving knowledge improvement. Students are collected daily by the driving school and returned at the end of their daily training schedule.

A residential intensive driving course is particularly suitable for those people who need to learn to drive in a short space of time. Perhaps they are looking to improve their CV and have a few job interviews coming up. A shorter 2 or 3 day residential intensive driving course is available for failed drivers, in order that the faults that caused them to fail the driving test can be identified and rectified, while new drivers may require a week long course. For those students who are close to the standard required for the driving test a 2 day, 12 hour weekend intensive driving course may be all that is needed, or a 4 day 18 hour course for those with some knowledge but who require a little extra instruction. With a 7 day intensive driving course you will experience around 35 hours of driving instruction.

As well as the obvious advantages provided by taking a residential intensive driving course, there are other benefits. You can chose to take your driving course in pleasant rural surroundings, for example and chose a lovely accommodation with the type of facilities that you enjoy. For example, the restaurant may have excellent food, there may be a fitness centre within the hotel or it may be located near to a golf course. There are considerable advantages in providing residential intensive driving courses from the driving school`s perspective as well. There is a growing demand for residential intensive driving courses, and by providing this type of instruction, a driving school will increase its income and draw students from a wider area. A city based driving school can offer real driving conditions for a student from out of town or one who is based in the country, while a rural based driving school can offer countryside locations, plenty of hilly driving and the opportunity! of a delightful short break with scenic views. For the newly qualified driver there are many cheap new cars for sale.
