For Best Results Book an Assessment Lesson

If you are unsure if an intensive driving course in Portland would suit you, then you should consider taking a driving assessment lesson. These lessons are normally a two-hour “taster” during which the driving instructor is able to measure what level your driving skill is currently at. 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.

All Intensive Driving Courses Run By Local Instructors

Portland is the southernmost point of Dorset which can only be reached via a narrow causeway leading from the famous Chesil beach containing the A354, the only land access to Portland! With plenty of cafés, local pubs and attractions, there will be plenty for you to explore whether you live in the area or are considering a residential course.

Although Portland does not have its own test centre, pupils are welcome to use the nearby test centre in Dorchester which is less than 30 minutes away. Located opposite the local fire station, the building itself is relatively new and contains everything you will need to complete your test.

When you first learn to drive in Portland, you will initially drive around the local area. However, as you become more confident, you will start to drive around Dorchester in order to learn the test routes. Dorchester contains many narrow residential roads which your examiner will make full use of to test your common manoeuvres such as pulling up on the right and parallel parking. With the A35, A354 and A37 within close proximity, it is more than likely that you will encounter some dual carriageway driving whilst on your test.

Our intensive driving courses and semi-intensive courses in Portland 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. All A Pass 4 U driving instructors are fully qualified ADIs, will always have up to date CRB’s and are dedicated, professional individuals that pride themselves on providing exceptional driving tuition in Portland.
