I was a very nervous driver to start with but Will was a brilliant instructor. I was surprised how quickly I picked it up and amazed I passed first time. I would recommend Will to any nervous learner. Thanks Will!

Today I passed my test after a 15 hour intensive course and lots of practice in my own car in between tests. I learnt with Mark Wilkins, who has been an absolute pleasure to have met. Being slightly older I was embarrassed and very nervous. Mark put that at ease within the first few lessons. I believe he only has the best interests of each student, encouraging and suggesting ways of support and progression. Thank you will never seem enough. Can’t not recommend highly enough. Thanks Mark!

Passed my test with Mark Wilkins. When I first started my lessons I literally had no confidence at all, I was such a nervous learner. Mark really brought me out of my shell, and I never felt any pressure at all. I honestly do not believe I would have passed my test with anyone other than Mark. He's so patient, and really encouraging! Thank you so much Skillz2drive!! �

I passed first time today with skillz2drive. I had Mark Wilkins as my teacher, and he was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better person to teach me how to drive... He made me feel so relaxed and comfortable from day 1 and was always encouraging me. Thank You again for being so helpful and inspiring, I really do appreciate it. Now I'm finally on the road after just 15 hours of 'intense driving course' lessons, and I couldn't feel more free. If anyone want a driving instructor that is easy going, keeps you calm, encourages you, makes you feel at ease and just in general a really nice guy, then Mark is the person for you!

Intensive Driving Lessons

Here at Skillz2drive we offer the very best in intensive courses at the most competitive prices and we pride ourselves on our very high first time pass rate.
We have three standard intensive courses to choose from. Once our experienced driving instructors have completed an hour long assessment lesson we can help you decide how many hours would best suit you.

The length of time to complete your intensive course can vary from 1 to 8 weeks, this depends on if you have passed your theory test, along with the waiting times for the practical driving test, but we will try to keep this down to a minimum. All pupils must be in possession of a current provisional driving licence before the course commences.

Your first step in learning to drive is to get your provisional driving licence. To do this, you should visit a Post Office or DVLA online. Your application will take around three weeks to process, so if you are eager to learn to drive soon after your 17th birthday then make sure that you apply three months before. This is completely allowed, so don’t worry about applying early.

The next thing to do would be to commence your driving lessons. The average person takes around 43 hours when learning how to drive. However this is with some extra practice on the side. If you don’t want to book this many lessons then you could just book 20, however you would need to allow yourself a lot of practice time between lessons.

Your theory test will come in two halves. The first half is a 50-question multiple choice test. To pass, you need to achieve a score which is 43 or higher. For the second half, you will take a test on hazard perception. You will be shown 14 video clips which show various hazards; you will then score five points for every clip. The points you score will depend on how long you take to respond.

The top score you can get on this test is 75; however you only need to score 44 in order to pass. If you want to pass your theory test, then you need to complete the two halves. If you pass one half but then fail the other, you will have to redo both parts of the test again.

You will take your theory test on a computer, which is very easy and simple to use. You will also find that the DSA provides a two pack CD Rom collection that has all the questions you’ll need to pass, plus the clips, so you can help to prepare yourself beforehand.

You will take your theory test at a test centre, and this test must be completed before you commence your practical test.

Your Theory test can be booked at www.direct.gov.uk/motoring, or you can book it by telephone at 0300 200 1122.

Your practical test can be booked at www.direct.gov.uk/motoring, or by calling this number 0300 200 1122.

Before you start driving, you’ll need to perform an eye test. You’ll then be tested with some questions about vehicle safety. After this, you’ll be tested on your driving ability; this includes two questions about reversing and an emergency stop. You should note however that only one out of three students are asked to do this.

The driving test will only last around 40 minutes. During this time, your instructor will take note of various skills that determine your driving ability. You are allowed to make up to 15 minutes of faults before you fail the test, however if you make more than 16 minutes then you have a guaranteed fail. If you perform a dangerous fault, then you will automatically fail.

Before you start your driving test, you should make sure that you bring the following documents.

Theory certificate

Your photo card license

Your old style paper license (if you have this, you must take your own driving license (signed) and a valid passport)

It is also a great idea to bring your confirmation letter, which states your pass date and time in case there are any questions. The more information you can bring with you, the better, as it can really help to speed up the process when obtaining your license.
