Hourly TuitionRMT:

The traditional method of learning to drive, hourly tuition offers one-to-one training over periods of an hour in-car. This means that you can take as much time as you need to become familiar with driving and have plenty of time to practice actual road skills with family and friends in between your direct tutelage time. With this style, you only take your theory and practical tests when you and your instructor agree that you are ready.

Intensive home courses

An intensive course is a stepped-up version of the hour a week method. Within the bounds of the intensive course, you are given many hourly sessions, and exposed to intense driving. This course style can lead to enhanced pressure and failure rate can increase because of this. However, if you are a confident driver, who has perhaps had previous driving experience, or copes well with pressure, these courses can get you up to speed very quickly and cost effectively. Some intensive courses require that you have passed your theory test before you begin, so that you are ready to jump straight into practical driving.

Intensive residential courses

The most intense driving courses you can get, these training camps will make you eat, sleep and drink driving for several days and give you a driving test at the end. These courses should only be considered if you are ready or able to take the time away from work or school. As with the home-based intense courses, you will need to be able to cope with the pressure, and should have passed your theory test before embarking on the course, as you will be driving, not hitting the books. You also have an opportunity to learn to drive in unfamiliar conditions, or a stay in a nice hotel. With courses available anywhere in the UK you can enjoy a holiday whilst learning to drive.
