Intensive/crash courses

Was one of your new years resolutions to learn to drive?
Do you feel you want to get it over and done with ASAP so think a intensive course is for you

Personally I do not recomend these for several reasons

The human brain benifits from time out to process things it has just learnt - this is called latent learning
After a couple of hours intensive learning your brain is just not taking in new information as effectivly as it would if you stopped and had a good nights sleep.

If you dont gell with your instructor you are still stuck with them, and of course you wont enjoy your lessons if you are dreading being in the car with them.

The pass rate is horrendously low

Actually if you are in a hurry to pass there is an easier way than cramming all your lessons into one week with a test at the end

Most people who contact me for a crash course havent even passed their theory yet - so booking that and waiting for the date then the waiting list for your practical test gives you about 2 months to take lessons in
Much better to take 2 - 3 2 hour lessons a week over the space of those 2 months than cramming everything into the last week - this also means you can adjust your number of lessons based on your own ability.
