Learning to Drive in Bridlington

Why choose an intensive driving course?

If you’ve found this blog post then you’re more than likely searching the internet looking for a driving school covering Bridlington. If this is the case then you’re probably also aware that there are plenty of options available online for those learning to drive. There are lots of driving schools in Bridlington that offer hourly driving lessons each week, allowing you to learn at your leisure, but have you ever considered an intensive driving course?

According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), it takes most people 45 hours of instructor-based driving lessons, plus another 22 hours of practice, before passing their driving test. The average cost of an hourly driving lesson in the UK is now £24. That works out at anywhere between £1080 – £1848 for 45-77 hours of training, and that’s without factoring in the cost of the theory and practical tests! Compare this to an intensive course, which can save you time and potentially money, as you may need less hours to become a competent driver.

Because of the speed in which a driving crash course can be completed, they often have a lower dropout rate than hourly driving lessons, and because they are so focused you can learn to drive much quicker. However they are less flexible and because of the intensity of the course are not suited to slow learners.
