Flexible & Affordable Driving Crash Courses

Take a driving crash course with A Pass 4 U, a family run intensive driving school with bases nationwide. We strive to provide the best possible driving tuition at affordable prices. Our intensive driving courses are designed to be very flexible to help you through the stressful times that start with studying for your theory test to passing your driving practical test and then on to Pass Plus.

Learning to drive can be quite daunting for any new driver particularly in busy areas, but our instructors are here to help and use their knowledge not only to aid you in passing your test but also to drive safely. We have numerous makes of car for your driving course; petrol and diesel are available, all are new and modern. Our male and female driving instructors are dedicated, professional individuals who pride themselves on providing exceptional driving tuition. All A Pass 4 U driving instructors are fully qualified ADIs, they have will always have up to date CRB’s. You can be rest assured your fully qualified Driving Standards Agency approved driving instructor will make sure you are not only capable of passing your test but have all the skills for safe driving for life.

All Intensive Driving Courses Run By Local Instructors

Our intensive driving courses and semi-intensive courses are run by driving instructors local to the chosen test centre, so not only do they have the skills to offer you the very best chance of passing but can give you some local knowledge on the driving test routes.

Each intensive driving course can be run over consecutive days – or they can be split if you choose to include a theory test with your course. All of our driving crash courses are run 1 to 1 with just you and the driving instructor in the car at any time. An intensive driving course is normally run over consecutive days with the test at the end of the driving course.

For Best Results Book an Assessment Lesson

We almost always suggest that you take an assessment lesson that will allow the instructor to see what you can (or more importantly what you can’t) do. It also gives you the chance to meet your instructor and drive the car you will be using on the course. After the assessment, you can then make an informed judgement on what driving course to take and how to structure it, which of course gives you a better chance of passing your driving test whilst maximising your time and money.

There is no ideal driving lesson length. So all of our intensive driving courses are flexible. What matters is that your driving course is right for you!


    Intensive Driving Course FAQs

    How long does it take to pass an intensive driving course?
    An intensive driving course will usually consist of a set number of hours of driver training per day, to run over a set number of days. The last hour on the last day of your course will usually see your driving test arranged. Before taking an intensive driving course, you will need to have passed your theory and hazard perception tests. From there it will depend on your experience and your ability to learn. APass4U offer intensive driving courses ranging from 6 hours over one day to 50 hours spread over 20 days. So you can learn at a pace suitable for you. Working out what driving course is right for you is difficult without seeing you drive and this is why we always recommend an assessment lesson.

    How much does it cost to take an intensive driving course?
    The price of our intensive driving courses varies depending on a few different factors such as:

    • How many hours you need to meet the required standard.
    • If you choose to learn to drive a manual or automatic transmission.
    • If you require a bed & breakfast (residential courses).

    Does an intensive driving course include a theory test?
    Our range of driving courses are designed for people who are looking to pass fast. An intensive driving course and all of our hourly, daily and weekly courses can be tailored to your requirements and can include a theory test if required. If necessary we can split your driving course so you have time with one of our expert driving instructors before your theory test.

    What manoeuvres should I expect to practice during an intensive driving course?
    Whilst taking an intensive driving course you will be taught the following and during your driving test you will be asked to complete one of the following manoeuvres:

    • Reverse into a bay (sometimes completed in a 3rd party car park)
    • Reverse out of a bay (sometimes completed in a 3rd party car park)
    • Parallel Park (completed on the road)
    • Pull up on the right and reverse 2 to 3 car lengths (completed on the road)

    Are intensive driving courses safe?
    An intensive course in no more or less safe than hourly driving lessons. Driving is a skill you will learn for the rest of your life. It is not easily gained. At A Pass 4 u driving school we pride ourselves in giving quality tuition at the right level for each pupil to be able to not only drive safely but to pass the Driving Standards Agency practical driving test. You will probably put a lot of hours, effort and emotions to gain your driving licence and it can easily be lost, especially in the first 2 years. This is when you are only allowed to gain six penalty points before you lose your licence completely. Then you will have to start again! So above all drive safely!

    Can I use my own car to take a driving test?
    You are allowed to use your own car to take a driving test but it does need to meet Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency standards and you will need to ensure the following:

    • The vehicle has been cleansed to a high level due to COVID-19
    • An additional interior mirror is available
    • Head restraints are fitted
    • The general condition of the vehicle is of a good standard
    • The vehicle needs to be insured for a driving test

    What proof of identity will I need when attending a driving test?
    When you meet your DVSA examiner they will ask to see the following documents:

    • Driving Licence (this is a must or you cannot take a test)
    • Theory Certificate
    • Marriage certificate (if you have recently been married and not been able to get your driving licence changed)

    Can my driving instructor accompany me on my driving test?
    Your driving instructor would usually be allowed to accompany you on your driving test, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the DVSA are not allowing driving instructors to sit in the back of the car. This may change at any time.

    If I get nervous during my practical driving test will the examiner penalise me for this?
    Absolutely not. In fact, it should be noted that most people taking a driving test will get nervous, it shows that you care about the result. If you do get so nervous you feel yourself not concentrating, then the best thing to do is to tell the examiner that you need to take a moment, pull over and compose yourself. You will not be penalised for doing this as you are showing the driving examiner that you are taking the safest option.

    Would a driving examiner fail me for going the wrong way on my driving test?
    It is very common for pupils to go the wrong way on a driving test, usually, this is due to nerves or challenges such as dyslexia. If you take a driving test, signal to turn in the correct way and follow that route, even if it’s the wrong one, the examiner will not penalise you. However, if you indicate to turn one way and then turn in the opposite direction, then you have driven wrongly and you will be penalised.

    What vehicle safety check questions can I expect to be asked on my driving test?
    One question will be asked at the test centre and one other asked on the move. You can find a full list of vehicle safety questions on our blog.

    When will I get to find out if I have passed or failed my practical driving test?
    The DVSA examiner will give you the result of your test when you arrive back at the test centre as part of a debrief. Regardless of whether you pass or fail the practical driving test the examiner will explain the results fully including any driving fault marks received. It is important that you allow your driving instructor to listen to the debrief as they will understand the details in more depth and help you to correct these.

    Can you drive straight after passing your driving test?
    Yes, you can start driving straight after passing your driving test. You do not need to wait for your licence to arrive in the post. Although you should contact the DVLA if your driving licence hasn’t arrived within 3 weeks.

    If you are unsure which of our courses would work best for you then please call our customer service team, their expertise ensures that they will be able to guide you towards the best possible choice for you.
