Intensive course structure
The course will start with an assessment lesson (explained below), after which we can arrange your course dates and book your driving test. If you haven’t yet passed the theory test we also have course packages that include the theory test fee and study material. Each day of the course will consist of between one and three 2-hour training sessions with a short refreshment break in between each session. Training will be in accordance with the most current DSA syllabus and the driving test will be arranged as the final hour of your course.
To determine the most suitable course package, you’ll first need to complete a two hour assessment lesson with one of our driving instructors. This is also an opportunity for you get to know the instructor and try out the tuition car prior to booking your intensive driving course. The assessment lesson can be taken any time, however we recommend you book it as early as possible, at least 3 weeks prior to the start date of your course.
